An SSR-based linkage map was constructed in Brassica rapa. It includes 113 SSR, 87 RFLP, and 62 RAPD markers. It consists of 10 linkage groups with a total distance of 1005.5 cM and an average distance of 3.7 cM. SSRs are distributed throughout the linkage groups at an average of 8.7 cM. Synteny between B. rapa and a model plant, Arabidopsis thaliana, was(More)
In an analysis of 114 F2 individuals from a cross between clubroot-resistant and susceptible lines of Brassica rapa L., 'G004' and 'Hakusai Chukanbohon Nou 7' (A9709), respectively, we identified two loci, Crr1 and Crr2, for clubroot (caused by Plasmodiophora brassicae Woronin) resistance. Each locus segregated independently among the F2 population,(More)
Bunching onion (Allium fistulosum L.) is one of the most important vegetables in Japan. To establish a genetic basis for molecular breeding of bunching onion, we isolated 1,796 simple sequence repeat (SSR) clones by large-scale sequencing of SSR-enriched genomic DNA libraries. Of these, 1,331 (74.1%) contained (GT) n repeats (n > 5), while 314 (17.5%) were(More)
Doubled haploid lines, which have high levels of genetic uniformity, are suitable for physiological or genetic studies. We established a transformation system using a doubled haploid line of cabbage. Hypocotyl explants that had been precultured for 3 days on Murashige and Skoog medium containing 50 µM acetosyringone were inoculated and cocultured with(More)
Bunching onion (Allium fistulosum L.) is one of the most important vegetables in Japan. Although expressed sequence tag (EST)-derived markers for bulb onion (A. cepa L.) have been developed from medium-scale sequencing, comparable EST sequences in bunching onion are lacking. In this study, we obtained 54,903 bunching onion unigenes using transcriptome(More)
 Cells of a suspension culture of Doritaenopsis cv. New Toyohashi were placed in a mixture of 2 M glycerol and 0.4 M sucrose for 15 min at room temperature and then dehydrated with a vitrification solution (PVS2) for 1–3 h on ice and plunged into liquid nitrogen. The highest viability (64% by 2,3,5-triphenyltetrazolium chloride stainability) was obtained(More)
We have constructed a linkage map of bunching onion (Allium fistulosum L., 2n = 16) using an F2 population of 225 plants. The map consists of 17 linkage groups with 212 bunching onion SSR markers and 42 bulb onion (A. cepa L.) SSR, InDel, CAPS or dCAPS markers, covering 2,069 cM. This is the first report of a linkage map mainly based on SSR markers in the(More)
The first genetic linkage map of Japanese bunching onion (Allium fistulosum) based primarily on AFLP markers was constructed using reciprocally backcrossed progenies. They were 120 plants each of (P1)BC1 and (P2)BC1 populations derived from a cross between single plants of two inbred lines: D1s-15s-22 (P1) and J1s-14s-20 (P2). Based on the (P2)BC1(More)
Cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) is an indispensable trait for F1 hybrid seed production in bunching onion (Allium fistulosum L.). Expansion of the cytoplasmic diversity of F1 hybrid cultivars by introduction of various CMS resources has great potential to eliminate vulnerability to cytoplasm type-specific diseases. This study aimed to evaluate appearance(More)
To determine the chromosomal location of bunching onion (Allium fistulosum L.) simple sequence repeats (SSRs) and bulb onion (A. cepa L.) expressed sequence tags (ESTs), we used a complete set of bunching onion–shallot monosomic addition lines and allotriploid bunching onion single alien deletion lines as testers. Of a total of 2,159 markers (1,198 bunching(More)
