Table 2 Comparison of the main yield parameters, including the number of grains per ear (N s ), total grain weight per ear (T w ) and 1000-grain weight (S w ), between the L693 and L661 parents and among the different genotypes in the segregating F2 population by independent sample t-tests

From: Wheat WCBP1 encodes a putative copper-binding protein involved in stripe rust resistance and inhibition of leaf senescence

  1. R indicates the resistant phenotype, and S indicates the susceptible phenotype. In the different genotypes, R indicates the dominant resistance gene, and r indicates the recessive, susceptible allele. P, value describing the differences between L693 and L661; P1, value describing the differences between the RR and Rr genotypes compared to rr; P2, value describing the differences between the RR and Rr genotypes. Asterisks represent significant differences: **P 0.01, *P 0.05
