Abstract: Previously, we identified a quantitative trait locus on the group 4 chromosomes of Aegilops and bread wheat that controls B-type starch-granule content. Here, we identify a candidate gene by fine-mapping in Aegilops and confirm its function using wheat TILLING mutants. This gene is orthologous to the FLOURY ENDOSPERM 6 (FLO6) gene of rice and barley and the PTST2 gene of Arabidopsis. In Triticeae endosperm, reduction in the gene dose of functional FLO6 alleles results in reduction, or loss, of B-granules. This… Show more
