Abstract

The barley eceriferum-b.2 (cer-b.2) mutant produces glossy leaf sheaths and is deficient in the cuticular wax component 14,16-hentriacontanedione. The mutated gene maps to a 1.3-cM interval on chromosome 3HL flanked by the genes MLOC_10972 and MLOC_69561. The cuticular wax coating of leaves and stems in many grass species is responsible for the plants' glaucous appearance. A major component of the wax is a group of β-diketone compounds. The barley eceriferum-b.2 (cer-b.2) mutant produces glossy leaf sheaths and is deficient for the compound 14,16-hentriacontanedione. A linkage analysis based on 708 gametes allowed the gene responsible for the mutant phenotype to be mapped to a 1.3-cM interval on chromosome 3HL flanked by the two genes MLOC_10972 and _69561. The product of the wild type allele may represent a step in the β-diketone synthesis pathway.

Attention Score in Context

This research output has an Altmetric Attention Score of 3. This is our high-level measure of the quality and quantity of online attention that it has received. This Attention Score, as well as the ranking and number of research outputs shown below, was calculated when the research output was last mentioned on 10 June 2017.
All research outputs
#7,371,498
of 14,615,283 outputs
Outputs from Theoretical & Applied Genetics
#1,604
of 2,332 outputs
Outputs of similar age
#102,476
of 258,310 outputs
Outputs of similar age from Theoretical & Applied Genetics
#33
of 53 outputs
Altmetric has tracked 14,615,283 research outputs across all sources so far. This one is in the 49th percentile – i.e., 49% of other outputs scored the same or lower than it.
So far Altmetric has tracked 2,332 research outputs from this source. They receive a mean Attention Score of 4.5. This one is in the 31st percentile – i.e., 31% of its peers scored the same or lower than it.
Older research outputs will score higher simply because they've had more time to accumulate mentions. To account for age we can compare this Altmetric Attention Score to the 258,310 tracked outputs that were published within six weeks on either side of this one in any source. This one has gotten more attention than average, scoring higher than 60% of its contemporaries.
We're also able to compare this research output to 53 others from the same source and published within six weeks on either side of this one. This one is in the 37th percentile – i.e., 37% of its contemporaries scored the same or lower than it.
