Capsinoids have similar biological effects as capsaicinoids, including anticancer and anti-obesity properties. The Capsicum chinense ‘SNU11-001’ variety of pepper was previously reported to contain high levels of capsinoids due to a mutation in the putative aminotransferase (pAMT) gene, which leads to production of the capsinoid precursor vanillyl alcohol.(More)
Pungency in pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) has unique characteristics due to the alkaloid compound group, capsaicinoids, which includes capsaicin. Although capsaicinoids have been proved to have pharmacological and physiological effects on human health, the application of capsaicinoids has been limited because of their pungency. Capsinoids found in non-pungent(More)
Most agricultural traits are controlled by quantitative trait loci (QTLs); however, there are few studies on QTL mapping of horticultural traits in pepper (Capsicum spp.) due to the lack of high-density molecular maps and the sequence information. In this study, an ultra-high-density map and 120 recombinant inbred lines (RILs) derived from a cross between(More)
In this study, we developed single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers to identify cultivars of the polyploid Rosa hybrida using genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS). Sequences obtained from GBS libraries of the genomes of 79 rose cultivars were aligned to contigs created by de novo assembly, and these contigs ranged from 200 to 2,591 bp, with an average of 305(More)
Single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs) play important roles as molecular markers in plant genomics and breeding studies. Although onion (Allium cepa L.) is an important crop globally, relatively few molecular marker resources have been reported due to its large genome and high heterozygosity. Genotyping-by-sequencing (GBS) offers a greater degree of(More)
Chili veinal mottle virus (ChiVMV) threatens the agricultural production of peppers (Capsicum annuum) in Asia and Africa. In this study, we evaluated ChiVMV resistance in the four pepper varieties CV3, CV4, CV8, and CV9. Segregation analyses revealed that CV3 and CV8 contain the single dominant resistance gene Cvr1, and CV9 contains the single recessive(More)
