Biochemistry of Russian wheat aphid resistance in wheat: involvement of lipid-like products
(University of the Free State, 2007-11-03)
Physical damage and disease are known to cause changes in the lipid composition of plants. The biochemical pathways that lead to changes in the lipid composition were investigated in a comparative study using Russian wheat ...
Genetic variability for Russian wheat aphid, Diuraphis noxia resistance in South African wheat genotypes
(University of the Free State, 2006-07)
Near-isogenic genotypes 1684/Tugela and 2199/Tugela containing D. noxia resistance ex SA1684 [PI 137739 (Dn1)] and SA 2199 [PI 262660 (Dn2)] were studied in terms of antibiosis, antixenosis and tolerance, population ...
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. ...
Cloning of genes involved in the early response of wheat towards Russian wheat aphid infestation
(University of the Free State, 2004)
English: The interaction between wheat (Triticum aestivum) and the Russian wheat aphid (Diuraphis noxia) was investigated on a molecular level. The resistant cultivar, Tugela DN1, was infested with the Russian wheat ...
