Fertilizer studies focusing specifically on increasing Zn concentration of grain or other edible parts are, however, very rare, although a large number of studies are available on the role of soil and foliar applied Zn fertilizers in correction of Zn deficiency and increasing plant growth and yield Martens and Westermann, 1991; Mortvedt and Gilkes, 1993; Rengel et al. The Northern region produces 25% of the total rice production where upland rice is grown on hilly areas, while lowland rice is grown in lower valleys and some terraced fields. Phytase was found to be biologically active and to accumulate in leaves up to 14. Our cluster analysis showed two major groups of Oryza sativa corresponding to the Indica and Japonica subspecies, similar to other studies Wen et al. There is a genuine need to integrate Zn in rice production systems by using agronomic and conventional breeding tools.
Moreover, we introduced this gene in an elite indica rice line that has highly desirable agronomic and field-performance traits. Zn concentration in 'Spear' wheat plants at the 3-leaf to early tillering stage was negatively correlated with severity of the disease. However, trace mineral deficiencies are still common throughout the world. In this context, according to Chen et al. However, only few Thai rice germplasm has been included in these studies Garris et al. The third group in blue had the Q values ranging from 0. Although he was unable to generalize concerning the biological role of carotenoids, he felt that the ability to absorb light seems to be the common factor.
However, biofortification often alters the flavor, appearance, and other features of foods in ways that may limit consumer acceptance of the new varieties and diminish their impact. The areas of bare patch in the older Zn treatments were approximately 5% greater than those in the fresh Zn treatments. Iron Fe deficiency in small grains grown on calcareous soils results in reduced yields, is difficult and expensive to treat with fertilizer, and is complicated to overcome by genetic field screening due to heterogeneous soil and environmental conditions. It is suggested that the effect of S on Fe uptake under Fe deficient condition may be mediated via an increase in S supply regulated biosynthesis of phytosiderophore and their consequent release in rhizosphere. No difference in iron bioavailability was observed in this study; the geometric mean was 8. O experimento foi conduzido em delineamento experimental inteiramente casualizado, com quatro repetições. A three-dimensional model has been constructed by fitting the aligned sequence to the coordinates of human H-chains, with appropriate modifications.
The chief editor of the series is Prof Huanming Yang of the Beijing Genomics Institute. There was no clear association between carotene and ascorbic acid concentrations. To determine genetic diversity and genetic difference in the rice samples according to population structure, we re-analyzed the data according to the population structure in Figure. Iron deficiency is the most widespread micronutrient deficiency world-wide. In Science and technology with Thai rice. In the studies using transgenic approaches, large increases in seed concentrations of Zn and also Fe have been reported following expression of the targeted proteins in seeds e.
As one of the most distinguished scientists in rice research today, Prof Yang led a team of researchers who successfully sequenced and analyzed the draft sequence of the indica rice subspecies. Além disso, Combs 2001 relatou que o nível adequado de Se em uma população está altamente correlacionado ao conteúdo de Se nos alimentos. Plant Physiol 2005, 137: 931—938. Cereal crops play an important role in satisfying daily calorie intake in developing world, but they are inherently very low in Zn concentrations in grain, particularly when grown on Zn-deficient soils. Most of the tested upland rice lines were planted in hilly areas in the North, and they were grouped with Japonica rice. Understanding the genetic structure and relationships among these germplasm will be useful for parent selection used in rice breeding programs.
Fe and Zn concentrations in polished T1 seeds from transgenic plants increased more than three and twofold, respectively; Fe and Zn concentrations also increased in both polished and brown T2 seeds. Development work is now underway to produce micronutrient-enriched strains of cereals and crops to overcome malnutrition and deficiencies, particularly of iron. The first volume provides the background information and highlights the major achievements in rice genomics; ongoing developments in this exciting field are also discussed. The effect of tea on iron absorption was studied in human volunteers. The iron storage protein, ferritin, is widely distributed in the living kingdom. If you are in a hurry to get a book or textbook for your class, you would better choose buying new books for prompt shipping.
The Bayesian-based clustering method demonstrated that the highest log likelihood score was obtained when the number of populations k was equal to six. These germplasm could be used to develop breeding lines with desirable traits, and they are available to other countries. We first introduced a ferritin gene from Phaseolus vulgaris into rice grains, increasing their iron content up to two-fold. This book dealt primarily with the chemistry of carotenoids. This control is important because the plants must obtain adequate levels of these essential nutrients for both vegetative and reproductive tissues, while at the same time preventing excess accumulation. To reduce the entry of these elements into the food chain, strict quality requirements for fertilisers might be enforced, agronomic strategies employed to reduce their phytoavailability, and crop genotypes developed that do not accumulate high concentrations of these elements in edible tissues.
Further, the use of the leaves as a vegetable, as is done in several African countries, can complement the use of the root as a staple because of the high nutrient density of the leaves. Se ha seguido trabajando en el tema Tang et al. Several rice accessions included in our study were used in the report by Zhao et al. According to Lucca et al. This requires a full understanding of the factors that affect their dynamic performance. Crop Sci 2003, 43: 2267—2271.
