what does Trypsin inhibitor do?
inhibits digestive proteases- potential role in plant defense
1 of 20
what does the F-box do?
mediates jasmonate-regulated plant defense
2 of 20
what do Calmodulin-binding proteins mediate?
responses to diverse endogenous and environmental cues in plants
3 of 20
what is the role of MAP4?
signal transduction
4 of 20
what is the role of serpin?
Control of proteolysis is important for plant growth, development, responses to stress, and defence against insects and pathogens, control proteolytic cascades
5 of 20
what does catalase do?
catalyzes the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide to water and oxygen- controls levels of H2O2
6 of 20
Proteome analysis is a sensitive method to detect what?
global changes in wheat proteins following insect infestation.
7 of 20
what part do aphids have in this?
Aphids induce a strong local response in wheat
8 of 20
how long does it take for a systemic response to be detected in wheat?
8 days
9 of 20
what effects do aphids induce in plants?
oxidative stress, regulatory proteins and disease and insect resistance factors in wheat- however not enough to confer resistance
10 of 20
Different (blank) wheat lines show different responses to aphid infestation
11 of 20
do the diploid resistant wheat line behave differently or the same as the susceptible wheat line following aphid infestation?
behave differently
12 of 20
Antioxidants and stress response proteins were shown to be present in which- diploid resistant or the susceptible line?
diploid resistant line and only following aphid feeding- absent in susceptible line- diploid resistant line may be a valuable tool in breeding wheat for resistance to aphid
13 of 20
does mechanical wounding induce the same or different set of responses to insect feeding?
different set of responses
14 of 20
what is the common name for the species Delia coarctata?
Wheat Bulb Fly
15 of 20
how does the wheat bulb fly attack plants?
It penetrates the stems where it mines at the level of the terminal bud. During its growth, it can attack successively, 5 to 6 tillers and destroy them.
16 of 20
what has wheat often been selected/bred for?
grain and flour quality and pathogen resistance, but commercial cultivars have low levels on insect resistance
17 of 20
which technologies can make significant contribution to sustainable food security?
Molecular breeding approaches, including production of GM crops via recombinant DNA technology
18 of 20
what will crop yield limited by even with these approaches?
by availability and cost of nutrients: P, N, and K- crops have been selected under conditions of high nutrient input – this approach is not sustainable in the long-term
19 of 20
what is the flag leaf used for?
critically important in determining yield, The ear, together with the flag leaf, is believed to play a major role as a source of assimilates during grain filling in C3 cereals.
