A COSII genetic map of the pepper genome provides a detailed picture of synteny with tomato and new insights into recent chromosome evolution in the genus Capsicum
We report herein the development of a pepper genetic linkage map which comprises 299 orthologous markers between the pepper and tomato genomes (including 263 conserved ortholog set II or COSIIExpand

The Pun1 gene for pungency in pepper encodes a putative acyltransferase.
Pungency in Capsicum fruits is due to the accumulation of the alkaloid capsaicin and its analogs. The biosynthesis of capsaicin is restricted to the genus Capsicum and results from the acylation ofExpand

Genetic control of pungency in C. chinense via the Pun1 locus.
Capsaicin, the pungent principle in hot peppers, acts to deter mammals from consuming pungent pepper pods. Capsaicinoid biosynthesis is restricted to the genus Capsicum and results from the acylationExpand

Molecular mapping of capsaicinoid biosynthesis genes and quantitative trait loci analysis for capsaicinoid content in Capsicum
Quantitative variation in the accumulation of two major capsaicinoids responsible for pungency in the fruit of chile peppers, capsaicin and dihydrocapsaicin, was analyzed in a cross between theExpand

A Dynamic Interface for Capsaicinoid Systems Biology1[C][W][OA]
Capsaicinoids are the pungent alkaloids that give hot peppers (Capsicum spp.) their spiciness. While capsaicinoids are relatively simple molecules, much is unknown about their biosynthesis, whichExpand

QTL analysis for capsaicinoid content in Capsicum
Pungency or “heat” found in Capsicum fruit results from the biosynthesis and accumulation of alkaloid compounds known as capsaicinoids in the dissepiment, placental tissue adjacent to the seeds.Expand

Molecular mapping of the C locus for presence of pungency in Capsicum.
Pungency owing to the presence of capsaicinoids is a unique character of pepper (Capsicum spp.). Capsaicinoids are produced in the placenta and it has long been known that a single dominant gene, C,Expand

A cytochrome P450 regulates a domestication trait in cultivated tomato
Significance This study reports the cloning of a tomato gene, SlKLUH, that controls fruit mass by increased cell layers and delayed fruit ripening. In addition, we identified a potential regulatoryExpand

Activator Mutagenesis of the Pink scutellum1/viviparous7 Locus of Maize Article, publication date, and citation information can be found at www.plantcell.org/cgi/doi/10.1105/tpc.010249.
The transposable elements Activator/Dissociation (Ac/Ds) were first discovered in maize, yet they have not been used extensively in their native host for gene-tagging experiments. This can beExpand

Contrasting modes for loss of pungency between cultivated and wild species of Capsicum
Studies documenting the inheritance of pungency or ‘heat’ in pepper (Capsicum spp.) have revealed that mutations at a single locus, Pun1, are responsible for loss of pungency in cultivars of the twoExpand
