NUTRITIONAL STATUS 53% of children of the world are malnourished and underweight and 40% of them live in India 70% of malnourished people live in South & Southeast Asia. Nearly 800 million people remain hungry & nearly 1.3 billion live in less than $1US / day Nearly 19000 infants among 40000 die every day due to malnutrition related disorders. 3.2 billion live with iron & vit A deficiency resulting irreversible blindness among 125 million school children.

BREEDING APPROACHES Evaluation of Germplasm Hybridization Somaclonal Variation Mutagenesis Interspecific Hybridisation Genetic Engineering

OBJECTIVES & PRIORITIES OF Nutritional breeding:

OBJECTIVES & PRIORITIES OF Nutritional breeding Consumer’s acceptance Yield cannot be scarified for nutritional qualities Identification & selection against compounds with toxic & /or antinutritional compounds. Emphasis on nutritional quality for maximum impact on human nutrition & wellness. Exploitation of genetic variability. Genetic manipulation for biosynthesis of chemical compounds. (Fredrick, 1999)


EVALUATION OF GERMPLASM It consists of screening of germplasm including varieties for nutritional traits along with good agronomic features. European and Asiatic carrot were evaluated for carotene, dry matter and TSS content (Gill and Kataria,1974) In tomato 42 genotypes were evaluated in 3 replications at 2 locations. Pant Bahar,CLN-31-0-4-2,CLN2123A,CLN2123E, CLN2143B, CLN1621L, AC1017, AC1037, AC897 are promising for TSS % over a wide range of atmosphere. (Aradhana Joshi,2003)

PowerPoint Presentation:

Even though there was no significant difference among the cultivars andersen had the highest TSS content. This could be used in further breeding programmes

Wild Relatives:

Wild Relatives Wild relatives of a crop includes its primitive forms (from where they have originated), related weedy species and other species in the same genus, which are not under cultivation These may serve as potential sources of genes for nutritional improvement of cultivated forms

HYBRIDIZATION Hybridization includes crossing between two genetically diverse genotypes. In some cases (polygenic nutritional characters) selection can also be followed after hybridization- Pedigree method of breeding. Monogenic nutritional characters can be brought into cultivated types by following back cross method of breeding. Recurrent selection is followed to increase desirable gene frequencies and to break undesirable linkages. RS for 2 cycles increased seed protein in French bean from 21.9% to 24.6% (Sullivan,1981) RS and RRS for increasing TSS content in tomato (Kalloo, 1988)

MUTAGENESIS Spontaneous mutation Induced mutation Mutants can be serve as source of quality genes Sweet Potato Mutant “Port Blaco” from Port Rico - White flesh, High starch ( Thamburaj,1998 )


MUTANTS Crop mutagen Remarks References Tomato γ rays Spontaneous High dry matter & sugar Increased β -carotene Hvostova et al ., 1976 Konsler et al., 1973 Capsicum γ rays EMS Irradiation High capsaicin content 20-60% capsaicin increment High protein Sigurbjournsson et al ., 1974 Abdalla, 1983 Gotts chalk, 1983 Sweet potato EI Variation in sugar content Kukimura et al., 1975 B. oleracea Spontaneous Orange curd mutant Cripset et al ., 1975

PowerPoint Presentation:

Irradiation-induced mutation breeding is effective in improving sweet potato characters such as yield, starch and soluble sugar content, carotenoids content of storage roots (Wang et al., 2007) Shin et al., (2011) evaluated gamma radiated Sweet potato genotypes and found higher starch and protein content in mutagenic material than normal ones


SOMACLONAL VARIATIONS (SCV) The generation of considerable variation, which is heritable during tissue culture is known as SCV (Rai & Rai 2006).


SOMACLONAL VARIATION Genetic variation present in tissue cultured raised plants “Scarlet” variety of sweet potato developed through soma clonal variation is having high starch content. Tomato variety “ DNAP-9”, 20% more soluble solids (Liu, 2010)


SOMACLONAL VARIANTS Crop Somaclonal variants observed Tomato (DNAP 9) High solids in fruit Carrot High carotene content Sweet potato High starch content (Liu, 2010)


Transgenics ….. A plant in which a foreign has been transferred through genetic engineering is called a transgenic plant and the gene so transferred is called transgene. (Singh, B.D. 2001)


TRANSGENES IN VEGETABLES CROP TRAIT GENE RESPONSIBLE GENE SOURCES Tomato ↑ Sucrose, ↓ Starch Sucrose phosphate synthase Maize Potato ↑ Starch(20-40%) ADP-glucose pyrophosrylase(ADP-GPPase) E.Coli ↑ Starch Starch synthase _ ↓ Sugar Invertase inhibitor( inhh ) Tobacco Water melon ↑ TSS ADP-glucose pyrophosphate Sweet Potato (Berry et al , 1999)

Engineering for Nutrition:

Engineering for Nutrition Grain Amaranthus - A. hypochondriacus contain higher storage grain protein content. This protein contain 2-4 folds more essential amino acids – Methionine, Lysine, Leucine & Threonine than normal ones The gene responsible for this protein AmA1 has been transferred successfully into Potato Patented by scientists at NBPGR, New Delhi, headed by Dr. Asis Dutta. (Chakraborty et al. 2000 JNU, ND)

PowerPoint Presentation:

88 AmA1 transgenic lines of 9 Indian potato cultivars viz. Kufri Badshah, Kufri Bahar, Kufri Chipsona-1, Kufri Chipsona-2, Kufri Jyoti, Kufri Lauvkar, Kufri Pukhraj, Kufri Sindhuri and Kufri Sutlej were developed at CPRI, Shimla. Expression of AmA 1confirmed in tubers of 48 transgenic lines. Evaluated twice at Modipuram and Shimla each. Data on protein quality and quality evaluated.


Potato var. with high sugar content leads to charring of sugar while chips making Potato varieties with high starch content are needed by Food industry. ADPGPP- ADP Glucose Pyro Phosphorylase, the first enzyme in the pathway of starch biosynthesis . This gene has been transferred to potato cultivars from E.coli, which resulted in dramatic increase in starch content in potato tubers (Monsanto, USA). FOR STARCH ENHANCEMENT

PowerPoint Presentation:

Sugar (Glucose, Fructose) GBSS Alpha Amylase gene Antisense promoter Starch Alpha Amylase m-RNA Antisense Alpha Amylase gene m- RNA m- RNA Inhibits Starch conversion into sugar STARCH ENHANCEMENT (Kuipers et al . 1994)

PowerPoint Presentation:

In plants acid invertase is thought to be involved primarily in conversion of sucrose to glucose & fructose for energy in growing tissues and increasing extracellular invertase activity results in severely stunted growth and inhibition of photosynthesis (Schaewen et al., 1990). In tomato invertase action is inhibited by using antisense gene technology thereby inhibited the sucrose metabolism

Grafting for nutritional improvement:

Grafting for nutritional improvement Grafting is one of the useful tool for improving yield and nutritional quality Flavor, pH, sugar, color, carotenoid content, and texture can be affected by grafting and the type of rootstock used (Davis et al. 2008) An increase in ascorbic acid content in tomato was found with grafting (Zhu et al . 2006)

LIMITATIONS Polygenic nature of some nutritional traits like protein content. Negative correlation between yield & nutritional quality. Transfer of character from wild spp. may pose several problems such as cross incompatibility, hybrid inviability, hybrid sterility & linkage of undesirable genes with desirable ones. Such work involves lot of chemical analysis. The analysis requires close cooperation of biochemist which sometimes becomes limiting factor in the progress. Low heritability of some nutritional traits.


FUTURE THRUST Restrengthening the germplasm collection. Development of F1 hybrids, varieties and induce mutants with higher nutritional values. Exploitation of molecular biology and cellular genetics for development of transgenics with high nutritional traits. Human nutritionists must specify the objectives a breeder is expected to achieve in breeding for nutritional improvement. Incorporation of nutritional traits should be integrated with the normal breeding procedures for yield. A close intraction between nutritionists and breeder will increase the rate of progress in breeding for nutritional quality.
