The article presents a study which tries to obtain a more complete overview of the potential role of PPDH2 genes in environmental adaptation in barley. It is said that temperature and day length are the main environmental factors which affect flowering and adaptation in temperate cereals like barley. The genes in barley which control flowering, include VRNH1, VRNH2, VRNH3, PPDH1, and PPDH2.

    The main objective of this study was to dissect the genetic basis of rice flowering regulated by temperature. We used two indica varieties Zhenshan 97 and Zhongzao 18, and 168 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) derived from them to estimate temperature effects on heading date (HD). Tests under four...

    An increase in global temperatures will impact future crop yields. In the cereal crops wheat and barley, high temperatures accelerate reproductive development, reducing the number of grains per plant and final grain yield. Despite this relationship between temperature and cereal yield, it is not...

    Barley cDNA and genomic clones homologous to the Arabidopsis flowering time regulator GIGANTEA were isolated. Genetic mapping showed that GIGANTEA is present as a single copy gene in barley (3HS) and rice (1S), while two copies are present in maize (3S and 8S) at locations consistent with...

    Early flowering is an important trait influencing grain yield and quality in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and barley (Hordeum vulgare L.) in short-season cropping regions. However, due to large and complex genomes of these species, direct identification of flowering genes and their molecular...

    The interaction between members of a gene network has an important impact on the variation of quantitative traits, and can influence the outcome of phenotype/genotype association studies. Three genes ( Ppd-H1, HvCO1, HvFT1) known to play an essential role in the regulation of flowering time...

    Plants use a wide range of molecular reactions for adaptation of their photosynthetic apparatus to high temperature. To understand the role of plastome genes in this process, we studied transcription of photosynthetic and household genes in plastids of 7-day-old barley ( Hordeum vulgare L.)...
