Characterization of Triticum aestivum Abscisic Acid Receptors and a Possible Role for These in Mediating Fusairum Head Blight Susceptibility in Wheat

Evolutionary relationships of wheat, rice, B. distachion and A. thaliana ABA receptors.

The evolutionary history was inferred using the Neighbor-Joining method [53]. The optimal tree with the sum of branch length = 4.66070389 is shown. The percentage of replicate trees in which the associated taxa clustered together in the bootstrap test (500 replicates) are shown next to the branches [54]. The tree is drawn to scale, with branch lengths in the same units as those of the evolutionary distances used to infer the phylogenetic tree. The evolutionary distances were computed using the Poisson correction method [55] and are in the units of the number of amino acid substitutions per site. All positions containing gaps and missing data were eliminated yielding a total of 79 positions in the final dataset. Evolutionary analyses were conducted in MEGA6 [41]. Gene locator ID’s are included in Table 1, and for barley and rice [21, 22].
