An ultradense genetic linkage map with >10,000 AFLP loci was constructed from a heterozygous diploid potato population. To our knowledge, this is the densest meiotic recombination map ever constructed. A fast marker-ordering algorithm was used, based on the minimization of the total number of recombination events within a given marker order in combination(More)
Plant resistance to nematodes is related to the ability of the host to reduce the development of nematode juveniles into females. Resistance to the potato cyst nematode (PCN) Globodera pallida, originating from the wild species Solanum sparsipilum, was dissected by a quantitative trait loci (QTL) approach. Two QTL explained 89% of the phenotypic variation.(More)
Segregation data were obtained for 1260 potato linkage group I-specific AFLP loci from a heterozygous diploid potato population. Analytical tools that identified potential typing errors and/or inconsistencies in the data and that assembled cosegregating markers into bins were applied. Bins contain multiple-marker data sets with an identical segregation(More)
A "F1" diploid population between Solanum tuberosum 2 x and the wild Solanum spegazzinii was studied. It segregated for resistance against the potato cyst nematode Globodera pallida derived from the wild species. The inheritance had a quantitative nature. Linkage maps of AFLP and RFLP markers were constructed for both parents. Three QTLs were identified on(More)
Pepper is known to be a recalcitrant species to genetic transformation via Agrobacterium tumefaciens. A. rhizogenes-mediated transformation offers an alternative and rapid possibility to study gene functions in roots. In our study, we developed a new and efficient system for A. rhizogenes transformation of the cultivated species Capsicum annuum. Hypocotyls(More)
The pepper accession Criollo de Morelos 334 is the most efficient source of resistance currently known to Phytophthora capsici and P. parasitica. To investigate whether genetic controls of resistance to two Phytophthora species are independent, we compared the genetic architecture of resistance of CM334 to both Phytophthora species. The RIL population F5YC(More)
The Nc(tbr) and Ny(tbr) genes in Solanum tuberosum determine hypersensitive reactions, characterized by necrotic reactions and restriction of the virus systemic movement, toward isolates belonging to clade C and clade O of Potato virus Y (PVY), respectively. We describe a new resistance from S. sparsipilum which possesses the same phenotype and specificity(More)
Potato cyst nematodes induce changes in plant host gene expression following root invasion. For an accurate comparison of gene expression by reverse transcription quantitative real-time PCR (RT-qPCR), internal reference genes are necessary for transcript normalization. Very few experimental data on suitable reference genes are available for interactions(More)
Using a complementary (c)DNA-amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) approach, we investigated differential gene expression linked to resistance mechanisms during the incompatible potato - Globodera pallida interaction. Expression was compared between a resistant and a susceptible potato clone, inoculated or not inoculated with G. pallida. These(More)
Meloidogyne fallax is an emerging pest in Europe and represents a threat for potato production. We report the mapping of genetic factors controlling a quantitative resistance against M. fallax identified in the Solanum sparsipilum genotype 88S.329.15. When infected, this genotype develops a necrotic reaction at the feeding site of the juveniles and totally(More)
