Zn Biofortification inTriticum aestivum: A Clue on DNA Methylation

Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingConference contribution

Abstract

DNA methylation plays an important role in regulating gene expression during biological development and tissue differentiation. Environmental stresses can induce genetic and epigenetic changes that trigger DNA methylation, which can generate novel and heritable phenotypic variations. That could be the reason for the observed morphological changes in wheat spikes after successive generations of high levels of Zn application. Therefore, in this study we assess the extent and pattern of cytosine methylation in Zn biofortified Triticum aestivum L. cv. Roxo leaves
