Triticale, a newly man-made cereal from a wheat-rye cross offers a
unique food and feed potential because of its higher protein content
with nutritionally balanced amino acid composition as compared to other
cereal grains. However, some cereal proteins such as trypsin inhibitors,
present in triticale and rye, can affect the...
The tissue and substrate degradational enzymes, acid hydrolases,
in endosperm were studied in order to discern the mechanism of seed
shriveling in triticale (XTriticosecale Wittmack).
Acid hydrolases in crude extract of 7-week-old developing
endosperm of 2 lines each of triticale with shriveled (6TB,JZBS) and
plump seeds (6TA, RBP) were successfully...
The nature of the isoprenoid pathway and diversity of biologically
significant products suggests that the pathway may be highly regulated,
particularly under stress conditions, where the availability of high
energy intermediates is limited. It was postulated that germinating
seeds suffer from a limited supply of available energy and must therefore...
Increasing grain yield in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) is a challenging task, because yield is a complex trait controlled by many genes and highly influenced by environmental factors. The genetic control of yield components and other traits associated with yield may be less complex and thus more manageable for breeding....
