Low molecular weight (LMW) glutenin subunits represent major part (30%) of storage proteins in wheat endosperm and determine the quality of dough. Despite their importance few LMW glutenin genes have been characterized so far and none from Indian wheat variety. In the present investigation PCR technique was employed to characterize LMW-GS gene representing Glu-B3 locus from Indian bread wheat cultivar NP4. The deduced protein sequence coded by Glu-B3 locus of LMW-GS gene from NP4 showed the presence of regular structure of the repetitive domain with varying numbers of glutamine (Q) residues and the presence of 1st cysteine residue within the repetitive domain at 40th position in mature polypeptide. Such structure might increase and stabilize the gluten polymer through intermolecular interactions of the large numbers of glutamine side chains and cysteine residues for intermolecular disulphide bond formation leading to stronger dough quality of NP4. Moreover, Glu-B3 specific primers could also be used for identifying 1BL/1RS translocation in addition to amplifying LMW glutenin genes. There was no amplification in 1B/1R translocation lines as short arm of wheat was replaced by short arm of rye chromosome in these lines. Such information can be useful in wheat improvement for dough properties for better chapati and bread quality.
