Induction of potato variants with enhanced resistance to common scab disease via cell culture is applicable to a cultivar developed in Japan, but the effect of using the phytotoxin thaxtomin A is restrictive.

Breed Sci 2018 Dec 6;68(5):629-638. Epub 2018 Dec 6.

Hokkaido Research Organization Kitami Agricultural Experiment Station, Yayoi 52, Kunneppu, Tokoro-gun, Hokkaido 099-1496, Japan.

To induce potato variants with enhanced resistance to common scab disease that retain the desirable agronomic traits of the original cultivars, we used a cell culture technique that employs thaxtomin A, the primary phytotoxin that induces scab symptoms. We induced 24 variants from the potato cultivar 'Saya-akane', developed in Japan, and selected two with enhanced resistance to the disease by growing them in planters with bacteriainoculated soil and in a field infested with the disease. We also examined toxin tolerance in micro-tubers of variants that showed a lower degree or percentage of infection in the glasshouse screening, and found no significant difference relative to the original cultivar.

Genome-wide association study of kernel moisture content at harvest stage in maize.

Breed Sci 2018 Dec 23;68(5):622-628. Epub 2018 Nov 23.

Jiangsu Yanjiang Institute of Agricultural Sciences, Nantong 226541, China.

Kernel moisture content at harvest stage (KMC) is an important factor affecting maize production, especially for mechanical harvesting. We investigated the genetic basis of KMC using an association panel comprising of 144 maize inbred lines that were phenotypically evaluated at two field trial locations. Significant positive or negative correlations were identified between KMC and a series of other agronomic traits, indicating that KMC is associated with other such traits. Read More

Faculty of Agriculture and Life Science, Hirosaki University, Hirosaki, Aomori 036-8561, Japan.

Wild rice, , is a genetic resource that can be used to improve cultivated rice, but its populations are now decreasing in terms of both size and number. Extensive research on wild rice has been conducted in Thailand, where two conservation sites have been preserved in natural areas where perennial wild rice predominates. The genetic structure of wild rice populations was investigated by examining both the chloroplast and nucleus genomes at sites of conservation site in Thailand. Read More

State Key Laboratory of Genetic Engineering, Institute of Genetics, School of Life Sciences, Fudan University, Shanghai 200433, China.

Grain number per panicle is a major component of rice yield that is typically controlled by many quantitative trait loci (QTLs). The identification of genes controlling grain number per panicle in rice would be valuable for the breeding of high-yielding rice. The chromosome segment substitution line 9IL188 had significantly smaller panicles compared with the recurrent parent 9311. Read More

QTLs maintaining grain fertility under salt stress detected by exome QTL-seq and interval mapping in barley.

Breed Sci 2018 Dec 28;68(5):561-570. Epub 2018 Nov 28.

Graduate School of Agriculture, Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, 3-5-8 Saiwai-cho, Fuchu, Tokyo 183-8509, Japan.

Enhancing salt stress tolerance is a key strategy for increasing global food production. We previously found that long-term salinity stress significantly reduced grain fertility in the salt-sensitive barley () accession, 'OUC613', but not in the salt-tolerant accession, 'OUE812', resulting in large differences in grain yield. Here, we examined the underlying causes of the difference in grain fertility between these accessions under long-term treatment with 150 or 200 mM NaCl from the seedling stage to harvest and identified quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for maintaining grain fertility.

The Institute of Crop Sciences, 2-1-2 Kannondai, Tsukuba, Ibaraki 305-8518, Japan.

Manipulating the genetic control of plant height is essential in soybean breeding to increase yield through the enlargement of the plant size while preventing lodging. A Japanese soybean germplasm, Y2, has distinctively shorter inter-node lengths than those of recently developed Japanese cultivars and is expected to provide new variation to prevent lodging. A quantitative trait loci (QTL) analysis for plant height-related traits was conducted using F individuals derived from a cross between the elite Japanese cultivar Fukuyutaka and Y2. Read More

Selection criteria for SNP loci to maximize robustness of high-resolution melting analysis for plant breeding.

Breed Sci 2018 Sep 4;68(4):488-498. Epub 2018 Sep 4.

Faculty of Agriculture, Saga University, 1 Honjo-machi, Saga, Saga 840-8502, Japan.

DNA markers are useful for identifying genes and developing new genetic materials for breeding and genetic research. High-resolution melting (HRM) analysis can detect a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) in two polymerase chain reaction (PCR) fragments as a melting temperature (Tm) difference without additional experimental steps, such as gel electrophoresis. To design a method for developing reliable HRM markers that discriminate between homozygous alleles containing SNPs, we tested new evaluation indexes related to the thermodynamics of double-stranded DNA to find one that maximizes the difference in Tm values between PCR fragments.

Carnation locus contains two chalcone isomerase genes involved in orange flower coloration.

Breed Sci 2018 Sep 25;68(4):481-487. Epub 2018 Aug 25.

Department of Biotechnology, Tokyo University of Agriculture and Technology, Koganei, Tokyo 184-8588, Japan.

Carnations carrying a recessive gene show accumulation of the yellow pigment chalcononaringenin 2'-glucoside (Ch2'G) in their flowers, whereas those with a dominant gene do accumulation the red pigment, anthocyanin. Although this metabolic alternative at the gene could explain yellow and red flower phenotypes, it does not explain the development of orange flower phenotypes which result from the simultaneous accumulation of both Ch2'G and anthocyanin. The carnation whole genome sequencing project recently revealed that two chalcone isomerase genes are present, one that is consistent with the gene (Dca60979) and another (Dca60978) that had not been characterized.

Hokkaido Agricultural Research Center, National Agricultural Research Organization, Sapporo, Hokkaido 062-8555, Japan.

The control of insects that consume cereal grains is important for the production and storage of grains. Hull-cracked rice, which has splits in the hull, becomes more susceptible to insects both in the paddy field and during storage. The development of varieties with a low frequency of hull-cracked rice is the most economical and effective strategy to avoid insect damage and the environmental risks from agricultural chemical entering rice grains.

Institute of Plant Science and Resources, Okayama University, Kurashiki, Okayama 710-0046, Japan.

To obtain a clear intact section of a ripened rice grain, which is suitable for biochemical and histological analysis, the Kawamoto method using a specific adhesive film was applied using a cryomicrotome. The longitudinal and sagittal sections were easily obtained together with the cross-section, and cell characteristics were clearly discerned in the ripened grain. It was demonstrated that the Kawamoto method is readily applicable for intact sectioning of hard tissue, including ripened grain. Read More

Genome re-sequencing, SNP analysis, and genetic mapping of the parental lines of a commercial F hybrid cultivar of Chinese cabbage.

Breed Sci 2018 Jun 29;68(3):375-380. Epub 2018 Jun 29.

Graduate School of Agricultural Science, Kobe University, Rokkodai, Nada-ku, Kobe, Hyogo 657-8501, Japan.

The genome-wide characterization of single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) between cultivars or between inbred lines contributes to the creation of genetic markers that are important for plant breeding. Functional markers derived from polymorphisms within genes that affect phenotypic variation are especially valuable in plant breeding. Here, we report on the genome re-sequencing and analysis of the two parental inbred lines of the commercial F hybrid Chinese cabbage cultivar "W77". Read More

Flowering time is an important agronomic trait for crops, and previous breeding work in has successfully transmitted other important agronomic traits from donor species. However, there has been no previous attempts to produce hybrids replacing the original alleles with alien alleles.

Pre-harvest sprouting (PHS) remains a long-standing problem for the production of barley () and wheat () worldwide. Grain dormancy, a key trait for the prevention of PHS, controls the timing of germination. Discovery of the causal sequence polymorphisms (CSPs) that produce naturally occurring variation in dormancy will help improve PHS tolerance. Read More
