• A HST1‐like gene controlled tiller angle through regulating endogenous auxin in common wheat

    13 days ago - By Wiley

    Summary
    Tiller angle is one of the most important agronomic traits and one key factor for wheat ideal plant architecture, which can both increase photosynthetic efficiency and greatly enhance grain yield. Here, a deacetylase HST1-like gene controlling wheat tiller angle was identified by the combination of a genome-wide association study and bulked segregant analysis. Ethyl methane sulfonate -mutagenized tetraploid wheat lines with the premature stop codon of TaHST1L exhibited significantly smaller tiller angles than the wild type. TaHST1L-overexpressing plants exhibited significantly...
