Vernalization genes VRN1 play a major role in the transition from vegetative to reproductive growth in wheat. In di-, tetra- and hexaploid wheats the presence of a dominant allele of at least one VRN1 gene homolo...Citation: BMC Plant Biology 2016 16(Suppl 3):244
The occurrence of spring forms in tetraploid Timopheevi wheat is associated with variation in the first intron of the VRN-A1 gene
Triticum araraticum and Triticum timopheevii are tetraploid species of the Timopheevi group. The former includes both winter and spring forms with a predominance of winter forms, where...Citation: BMC Plant Biology 2016 16(Suppl 3):236
Albinism in plants is characterized by lack of chlorophyll and results in photosynthesis impairment, abnormal plant development and premature death. These abnormalities are frequently encountered in interspeci...Citation: BMC Plant Biology 2016 16(Suppl 3):245
Cultivated flax (Linum usitatissimum L.) is widely used for production of textile, food, chemical and pharmaceutical products. However, various stresses decrease flax production. Search for genes, which are invol...Citation: BMC Plant Biology 2016 16(Suppl 3):237
Expression of an extracellular ribonuclease gene increases resistance to Cucumber mosaic virus in tobacco
The apoplast plays an important role in plant defense against pathogens. Some extracellular PR-4 proteins possess ribonuclease activity and may directly inhibit the growth of pathogenic fungi. It is likely tha...Citation: BMC Plant Biology 2016 16(Suppl 3):246
The loss of photosynthetic pathways in the plastid and nuclear genomes of the non-photosynthetic mycoheterotrophic eudicot Monotropa hypopitys
Chloroplasts of most plants are responsible for photosynthesis and contain a conserved set of about 110 genes that encode components of housekeeping gene expression machinery and photosynthesis-related functio...Citation: BMC Plant Biology 2016 16(Suppl 3):238
