• Biochemical and molecular characterization of two low phytate pea lines

    The overall objective of the project was to characterize field pea lines low in phytic acid levels at biochemical and molecular level.

    Accumulation of phosphorus -containing compounds in developing seeds of field pea lines normal and low in phytic acid levels were assessed. The possibility of MIPS enzyme controlling the low-phytate trait in field pea cultivars was analyzed. Finally, genomic regions associated with low-phyate trait was mapped on to field pea genome.
