The occurrence of late maturity alpha-amylase (LMA) was investigated using two doubled haploid wheat populations segregating for the dwarfing gene Rht-D1b and the 1B/1R translocation. Genotypes were assessed in the field and in controlled environments where a cold-shock treatment was used to induce LMA. Results from field-grown genotypes from the cross Spark × Rialto suggest that the absence of Rht-D1b or the presence of the 1B/1R translocation increases the expression of LMA.These two genetic factors were found to act independently and to have a positive interaction (complementary epistasis). In Option × Potent genotypes fixed for Rht-D1b, the 1B/1R effect was similar to that seen in the equivalent Spark × Rialto genotypes. Under controlled environment conditions, genotypes with the 1B/1R translocation showed a higher occurrence of LMA under both control and cold-shock conditions. 1B/1R was present in the majority of genotypes expressing LMA under control and cold-shock conditions. The results point to the novel finding that the 1B/1R translocation increases the expression of alpha-amylase in LMA-prone germplasm independently of effects of Rht-D1b, whereas previously it had been thought to act by a modification of the Rht-D1b effect.

The objectives of the research were to determine the position of quantitative trait loci (QTL) for α-amylase activity on the genetic map of a rye recombinant inbred line population—S120 × S76—and to compare them to known QTL for preharvest sprouting and heading earliness. Fourteen QTL for α-amylase activity on all seven chromosomes were identified. The detected QTL were responsible for 6.09–23.32% of α-amylase activity variation. The lowest LOD value (2.22) was achieved by locus QAa4R-M3 and the...

Preharvest sprouting (PHS) has been recognised as the primary cause of low falling numbers (FNs) in wheat. From recent research it is clear that there are a number of additional causes of low FNs, including late maturity α-amylase. FNs of certain cultivars have varied considerably from year to year and across environments in the wheat producing areas of the Free State Province. In this study we aimed to determine whether climatic conditions could contribute to unexpectedly low FNs. Eleven cultiv...

Late maturity α-amylase (LMA) in wheat is a defect where high-isoelectric point (pI) α-amylase accumulates in the ripening grain. Wheat genotypes vary in expression from zero to high levels of α-amylase, the latter with detrimental consequences on their use for value-added end products. Expression in each genotype is characterised by varying numbers of grains affected and different levels in each grain. Analysis of a doubled haploid (DH) population (188 lines) from WW1842 × Whistler has identifi...

Late maturity α-amylase (LMA) is a genetic defect of wheat which results in the production of α-amylase, shown as substandard falling numbers, in the absence of preharvest rain and under cool temperatures during ripening. The present study is an attempt to use a whole-genome scan with DArT markers to identify chromosomal regions influencing LMA in synthetic hexaploid wheat (SHW). A high heritability estimate of 86.6% was calculated for LMA phenotype measured as optical density in a collection of...

: Achieving quality requires the selection of varieties suited to prevailing environments and cropping systems. For well-adapted varieties, yield and quality can still be affected strongly by the weather and by agronomic interventions. Some of the strongest influences are heat and drought during grain filling, the availability of nitrogen and sulphur, the control of leaf and ear diseases, and the control of lodging. The effects of these and other factors are described, particularly in relation t...

Late-maturity alpha-amylase (LMA) is a key concern for Australia’s wheat industry because affected grain may not meet receival standards or market specifications, resulting in significant economic losses for producers and industry. The risk of LMA incidence across Australia’s wheatbelt is not well understood; therefore, a predictive model was developed to help to characterise likely LMA incidence. Preliminary development work is presented here based on diagnostic simulations for estimating the l...

Late-maturity α-amylase (LMA) expression in wheat grains can be induced by either a cool temperature shock close to physiological maturity or continuous cool maximum temperatures during grain development. Late-maturity α-amylase (LMA) is a genetic trait in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) involving the production of α-amylase during grain development, which can result in an unacceptably low Falling Number (FN) in mature grain and consequent grain downgrading. Comparison of the FN test, an α-amylase ...

High isoelectric point α-amylase genes (Amy1) play major roles during cereal seed germination, and are associated with unacceptable high residual α-amylase activities in ripe wheat grains. However, in wheat and barley, due to extremely high homology of duplicated copies, and large and complex genome background, the knowledge on this multigene family is limited. In the present work, we identified a total of 41 Amy1 genes among 13 investigated grasses. By using genomic resources and experimental v...

Falling number (FN) is an inner quality trait in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) ultimately determining the end use of wheat kernels. In this 3-year study, 171 recombinant inbred lines derived from Chuannong17 (a 1BL/1RS tranlocation parent) × Mianyang11 were planted in the Sichuan Basin, a rainfed agricultural area in southwestern China. In this climate, we found that FN had significant differences between 1BL/1RS translocation lines and non-1BL/1RS translocation lines in two of the 3 years and th...

The falling number (FN) reflects the level of alpha amylase activity in grain/flour and serves as an international standard of grain quality. The lower the FN the lower the quality of grain and its price. The main factor responsible for high α amylase levels and low FN values is visible or hidden preharvest sprouting (PHS) under adverse weather conditions. The decisive role in obtaining consistently high FNs belongs to breeding for preharvest sprouting resistance (PHSR) and directly for the FN. ...

The effects of dwarfing alleles (reduced height, Rht) in near isogenic lines on wheat grain quality are characterised in field experiments and related to effects on crop height, grain yield and GA-sensitivity. Alleles included those that conferred GA-insensitivity (Rht-B1b, Rht-B1c, Rht-D1b, Rht-D1c) as well as those that retained GA-sensitivity (rht(tall), Rht8, Rht8 + Ppd-D1a, Rht12). Full characterisation was facilitated by including factors with which the effects of Rht alleles are known to ...

The occurrence of pre-maturity α-amylase (PMA) is a major cause of poor bread-making quality (low Hagberg Falling Number) in wheat grain. In susceptible genotypes, it involves the excessive accumulation of high isoelectric point (pI) α-amylase in mature grain prior to germination and in the absence of pre-harvest sprouting. Several factors regulate PMA formation in developing grain, including genotype, agronomy, and environmental conditions. In particular, a cold period during mid-grain developm...

Число падения (ЧП) отражает уровень активности альфа-амилазы в зерне/муке и является международным стандартом качества зерна. Чем ниже ЧП, тем ниже качество зерна и его цена. Главные причины снижения ЧП – видимое или скрытое предуборочное прорастание (ПП) в условиях неблагоприятной погоды. Решающую роль в получении стабильно высокого ЧП играет селекция на устойчивость к предуборочному прорастанию (УкПП), а также непосредственно на ЧП.

The objective of the present study was to analyse the genetic basis of falling number in three winter wheat populations. Samples for falling number determination for each population originated from at least three test environments that were free from the occurrence of preharvest sprouting at harvest time. Quantitative trait locus (QTL) analysis employing falling number values from single environments identified eight, five and three QTL in the populations Dream/Lynx, Bussard/W332-84 and BAUB4695...
