    • Allelic variation of puroindolines genes in Iranian common wheat landraces 

      Huertas - García, Ana B.; Guzman, Carlos; Tabbita, Facundo; Alvarez, Juan B. (MDPI, 2022-08-10)
      Wheat is one of the most widely grown crops in the world. One of the traits that defines wheat quality is grain hardness, which is determined by puroindolines (PINA and PINB) proteins encoded with Pina-D1 and Pinb-D1 genes. ...
    • Grain mineral composition of Argentinean-adapted wheat cultivars: a case study 

      D'amico, Iván Franco; Silva, Mauro; Moriconi, Jorge I.; Santa-María, Guillemo E.; Bainotti, Carlos Tomas; Tabbita, Facundo (CSIRO, 2021-02-23)
      Abstract. Improvement of the nutritional quality of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) has been quite challenging, due, in part, to the limited variation found in modern cultivars and the strong effect exerted by the environment, ...
    • Regulation of Zn and Fe transporters by the GPC1gene during early wheat monocarpic senescence 

      Pearce, Stephen; Tabbita, Facundo; Cantu, Dario; Buffalo, Vince; Avni, Raz; Vazquez Gross, Hans; Zhao, Rongrong; Conley, Christopher J.; Distelfeld, Assaf; Dubcovsky, Jorge (2014-12)
      Background; During wheat senescence, leaf components are degraded in a coordinated manner, releasing amino acids and micronutrients which are subsequently transported to the developing grain. We have previously shown that ...
    • Transcriptional signatures of wheat inforescence development 

      VanGessel, Carl; Hamilton, James; Tabbita, Facundo; Dubcovsky, Jorge; Pearce, Sthepen (Springer Nature, 2022-10-14)
      In order to maintain global food security, it will be necessary to increase yields of the cereal crops that provide most of the calories and protein for the world’s population, which includes common wheat (Triticum aestivum ...
