Characterization of some early defence responses of leaf rust-infected wheat
(University of the Free State, 2007)
The aim of this study was to investigate the early events following the infection of wheat with leaf rust. An attempt was made to identify and characterize genes putatively involved in these early events. More specifically, ...
Metabolic aspects of the early response of leaf rust-infected wheat
(University of the Free State, 2008)
English: The aim of this study was to study various aspects of the defence response of wheat infected by Puccinia triticina. SSH was used to isolate differentially expressed cDNA fragments from P. triticina infected wheat. ...
Grain yield and breadmaking quality of wheat lines with leaf rust resistance genes Lr29, Lr34, Lr35, and Lr37
(University of the Free State, 1999-06)
English: 1. The aim of this study was to determine if the leaf rust resistance genes Lr2g, Lr34, Lr35 and Lr37 have an effect on the quality and yield characteristics of a cultivar it is incorporated into. 2. Near-isogenic ...
A comparison of monosomic and disomic substitution lines in the chromosomal location of leaf rust resistance genes in tetraploid wheats
(University of the Free State, 2003-05)
English: Two sets of aneuploids were employed and compared to localize adult plant leaf rust resistance genes in tetraploid wheat accessions. One set was the hexaploid Chinese Spring (CS) A- and B-genome monosomics ...
