Molecular biology and (trans) gene expression technology in plant breeding
Evaluation the effect of senescence on the mineral remobilization in two bread wheat cultivars

Abolfazl Mazandarani; Saeid Navabpour; Ahad Yamchi

Volume 8, Issue 2 , December 2020, , Pages 38-49

  The main source of protein and micronutrients in wheat grains is the flag leaf and to a lesser extent the lower leaves. As healthy leaves reach the final stage of growth, senescence, they remobilize the nutrients necessary before tissue destruction and death. This experiment was carried out in Golestan ...  Read More

Germplasm genetic diversity & plant breeding
Genetic diversity evaluation for drought stress tolerance in bread and durum wheat genotypes using common and new drought tolerance indices

Mohsen Saeidi; Majid Abdoli

Volume 8, Issue 1 , June 2020, , Pages 19-30

  To evaluate the genetic diversity and the effect of drought stress on grain yield of wheat, 56 wheat genotypes were evaluated for terminal drought stress tolerance in field environments in the Kermanshah of Iran during the 2010-2011 cropping season. The experiments were conducted at the Campus of Agriculture ...  Read More

Molecular markers & plant breeding
PCR-based markers for identification of some allelic variation at Glu-1 and Glu-3 loci in common wheat

Elham Mehrazar; Ali Izadi-Darbandi; Mohsen Mohammadi; Goodarz Najafian

Volume 2, Issue 2 , December 2014, , Pages 28-42

  Marker assisted selection (MAS) is a tool for breeding, screening, and genetic characterization of germplasm. Allelic variation of both high and low molecular weight glutenin subunits (HMW/LMW-GS) is associated with the rheological properties of wheat flour. In this study, we investigated glutenin pattern ...  Read More

Molecular markers & plant breeding
Assessment of genetic diversity and identification of SSR markers associated with grain iron content in Iranian prevalent wheat genotypes

Namdar Moradi; Hedieh Badakhshan; Hadi Mohammadzadeh; Mohammadreza Zakeri; Ghader Mirzaghaderi

Volume 2, Issue 1 , June 2014, , Pages 64-73

  Iron is one of the most important nutrients in the human diet. According to the high consumption of staple foods such as wheat, the deficiency of iron in these crops would lead to nutritional disorders and related complications. To identify microsatellite markers associated with wheat grain iron content,38Iranian ...  Read More

Catalase and Metallothionein genes expression analysis in wheat cultivars under drought stress condition

Fahime Moloudi; Saeid Navabpour; Hassan Soltanloo; Seyedeh Sanaz Ramazanpour; Hamidreza Sadeghipour

Volume 1, Issue 2 , October 2013, , Pages 54-68

  Drought stress is one of the serious problems that restricted agronomic plant production worldwide. In molecular level, the harmful effect of drought stress is mostly caused by producing of large amount of reactive oxygen species (ROS). Catalase and Metallothionein genes have a crucial role to mope the ...  Read More
