- ... KEY MESSAGE: We cloned TaSST genes, developed a gene-specific marker for TaSST - D1 , and identified three QTL in the Doumai/Shi 4185 RIL population. TaSST - D1 is within one of the three QTL. Sucrose:sucrose-1-fructosyltransferase (1-SST), a critical enzyme in the fructan biosynthetic pathway, is significantly and positively associated with water soluble carbohydrate (WSC) content in bread wheat ...
