SNP alleles on chromosomes 4BL and 6AL are associated with sensitivity to salt tolerance in wheat and upon validation can be exploited in the development of salt-tolerant wheat varieties. The dissection of the genetic and molecular components of salt stress response offers strong opportunities toward understanding and improving salt tolerance in crops. In this study, GWAS was employed to identify a total of 106 SNP loci (R2 = 0.12-63.44%) linked to salt stress response in wheat using leaf chlorophyll fluorescence, grain quality and shoot ionic (Na+ and K+ ions) attributes. Among them, 14 SNP loci individually conferred pleiotropic effects on multiple independent salinity tolerance traits including loci at 99.04 cM (R2 ≥ 14.7%) and 68.45 cM (R2 ≥ 4.10%) on chromosomes 6AL and 4BL, respectively, that influenced shoot Na+-uptake, shoot K+/Na+ ratio, and specific energy fluxes for absorption (ABS/RC) and dissipation (DIo/RC). Analysis of the open reading frame (ORF) containing the SNP markers revealed that they are orthologous to genes involved in photosynthesis and plant stress (salt) response. Further transcript abundance and qRT-PCR analyses indicated that the genes are mostly up-regulated in salt-tolerant and down-regulated in ...Continue Reading

Coronaviruses encompass a large family of viruses that cause the common cold as well as more serious diseases, such as the ongoing outbreak of coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19; formally known as 2019-nCoV). Coronaviruses can spread from animals to humans; symptoms include fever, cough, shortness of breath, and breathing difficulties; in more severe cases, infection can lead to death. This feed covers recent research on COVID-19.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

Chronic fatigue syndrome is a disease characterized by unexplained disabling fatigue; the pathology of which is incompletely understood. Discover the latest research on chronic fatigue syndrome here.

Synapse Loss as Therapeutic Target in MS

As we age, the number of synapses present in the human brain starts to decline, but in neurodegenerative diseases this occurs at an accelerated rate. In MS, it has been shown that there is a reduction in synaptic density, which presents a potential target for treatment. Here is the latest research on synapse loss as a therapeutic target in MS.
