Prolamin content and grain weight in RNAi silenced wheat lines under different conditions of temperature and nitrogen availability
MetadataShow full item record
Temperature and nitrogen (N) availability are two important environmental factors that may produce important changes in grain composition during grain filling of bread wheat. In this study, four wheat lines with the down-regulation of gliadins by means of RNA interference (RNAi) have been characterized to determine the effect of thermal stress and N availability on grain weight and quality; with focus on gliadin and glutenin protein fractions. Grain weight was reduced with heat stress (HS) in all RNAi lines, whereas gliadin content was increased in the wild-types. With respect to gliadin content, RNAi lines responded to HS and N availability differently from their respective wild-types, except for ω-gliadin content, indicating a very clear stability of silencing under different environmental conditions. In a context of increased temperature and HS events, and in environments with different N availability, the RNAi lines with down-regulated gliadins seem well suited for the production of wheat grain with low gliadin content.

Yield and grain weight responses to post-anthesis increases in maximum temperature under field grown wheat as modified by nitrogen supply Elía Martínez, Mónica; Slafer, Gustavo A.; Savin, Roxana (Elsevier, 2018)High-temperatures reduce yield of wheat and with global warming episodes of heat waves (only few days of high maximum temperatures) during grain filling will become more frequent. It has been recently reported that the ...
Do barley and wheat (bread and durum) differ in grain weight stability through seasons and water–nitrogen treatments in a Mediterranean location? Cossani Rial, César Mariano; Slafer, Gustavo A.; Savin, Roxana (Elsevier, 2011)Under Mediterranean environments, farmers usually prefer to sow barley rather than wheat as it is generally believed that barley yields more under stressful conditions. As terminal stresses such as high temperature and ...
Floret development and grain setting differences between modern durum wheats under contrasting nitrogen availability Ferrante, Ariel; Savin, Roxana; Slafer, Gustavo A. (Oxford University Press, 2013)Wheat yield depends on the number of grains per square metre, which in turn is related to the number of fertile florets at anthesis. The dynamics of floret generation/degeneration were studied in contrasting conditions of ...
