Novel candidate genes AuxRP and Hsp90 influence the chip color of potato tubers

Potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) tubers exhibit significant variation in reducing sugar content directly after harvest, cold storage and reconditioning. Here, we performed QTL analysis for chip color, which is strongly influenced by reducing sugar content, in a diploid potato mapping population. Two QTL on chromosomes I and VI were detected for chip color after harvest and ...

Molecular cloning and heterologous expression analysis of JrVTE1 gene from walnut (Juglans regia)

Tocopherol cyclase (VTE1) plays a key role in promoting the production of γ-tocopherol and improving total tocopherol content in photosynthetic organisms. Walnut is an important source of tocopherols in the human diet, and γ-tocopherol is the major tocopherol compound in walnut kernels. In this study, a full-length cDNA of the VTE1 gene was isolated from walnut using RT-PCR and ...
