Natural variation leading to differences in leaf morphology between domesticated tomato and a wild relative is explored in a set of introgression lines. The phenotypic context of leaf morphology with other traits is examined at the whole-plant level, with implications for organ-specific breeding efforts. Introgression lines (ILs), in which genetic material from wild tomato species is introgressed into a domesticated background, have been used extensively in tomato (Solanum lycopersicum…

Genetic Architecture and Molecular Networks Underlying Leaf Thickness in Desert-Adapted Tomato Solanum pennellii1[OPEN]
A custom-built confocal profilometer was used to directly measure leaf thickness in a set of introgression lines (ILs) derived from the desert tomato Solanum pennellii and identified quantitative trait loci to establish a framework of genetic, anatomical, and molecular mechanisms that pattern leaf thicknessIn desert-adapted tomato.
Quantitative Genetic Analysis Indicates Natural Selection on Leaf Phenotypes Across Wild Tomato Species (Solanum sect. Lycopersicon; Solanaceae)
It is demonstrated that some trait transitions between species could have involved few, large-effect genetic changes, allowing rapid responses to new environmental conditions, and macroevolutionary transitions between vastly different stomatal distributions may not be constrained when such large- effect mutations are available.
A New Advanced Backcross Tomato Population Enables High Resolution Leaf QTL Mapping and Gene Identification
This work reports on a new advanced backcross QTL mapping resource for tomato, derived from a cross between the M82 tomato cultivar and S. pennellii, and demonstrates the utility of the BILs for fine-mapping QTL, particularly QTL initially mapped in the ILs, by fine- mapping several QTL to single or few candidate genes.
Genetic Architecture and Molecular Networks Underlying Leaf Thickness in Desert-Adapted Tomato Solanum pennellii
The identified QTL for leaf thickness in desert-adapted tomato is identified and the anatomic and transcriptional alterations associated with this trait are characterized using near isogenic lines.
Modifications to a LATE MERISTEM IDENTITY1 gene are responsible for the major leaf shapes of Upland cotton (Gossypium hirsutum L.)
The results indicate that subokra is the ancestral leaf shape of tetraploid cotton that gave rise to the okra allele and that normal is a derived mutant allele that came to predominate and define the leafshape of cultivated cotton.
Resolving Distinct Genetic Regulators of Tomato Leaf Shape within a Heteroblastic and Ontogenetic Context[W][OPEN]
The results demonstrate that phenotype is highly contextual and that unbiased assessments of phenotype, for quantitative genetic or other purposes, would ideally sample the many developmental and environmental factors that modulate it.
Analysis and fine mapping of a gene controlling the folded-leaf phenotype of a mutant tomato line
A genetic analysis of the folded-leaf trait in 199 F2 individuals revealed this leaf phenotype is controlled by a single recessive gene, which may be ARF4, which encodes an auxin response factor.
Genomic Dissection of a Wild Region in a Superior Solanum pennellii Introgression Sub-Line with High Ascorbic Acid Accumulation in Tomato Fruit
This work identified the genes of the wild donor S. pennellii harbored by the sub-line and to detect genes controlling ascorbic acid accumulation by using genomics tools and evidenced the potential role of the novel genes present in the wild region.
Genetic and Developmental Basis for Increased Leaf Thickness in the Arabidopsis Cvi Ecotype
Overall, the data suggest that mechanistically, an altered schedule of cellular events affecting endopolyploidy and increasing palisade mesophyll cell length contribute to increase of leaf thickness in Cvi.
A Modern Ampelography: A Genetic Basis for Leaf Shape and Venation Patterning in Grape1[C][W][OPEN]
Meta-analysis reveals a relationship between leaf morphology and hirsuteness, traits known to correlate with climate in the fossil record and extant species, and demonstrates a genetic basis for the intricate diversity present in grape leaves.


A comparative study of the genetic bases of natural variation in tomato leaf, sepal, and petal morphology
Five of the leaflet-trait QTL map to analogous regions in the genome of eggplant, and therefore it appears there has been some conservation in the genes controlling leaf morphology within the Solanaceae.
Quantitative trait locus analysis of leaf dissection in tomato using Lycopersicon pennellii segmental introgression lines.
This work used publicly available segmental introgression lines to describe the quantitative trait loci (QTL) controlling the difference in leaf dissection seen between two tomato species, Lycopersicon esculentum and L. pennellii.
An introgression line population of Lycopersicon pennellii in the cultivated tomato enables the identification and fine mapping of yield-associated QTL.
A novel population consisting of 50 introgression lines originating from a cross between the green-fruited species Lycopersicon pennellii and the cultivated tomato (cv M82) is presented, which provides complete coverage of the genome and a set of lines nearly isogenic to M82.
Genetic analysis of natural variations in the architecture of Arabidopsis thaliana vegetative leaves.
It is suggested that intraspecific variability in A. thaliana leaf morphology arises from an accumulation of mutations at quantitative trait loci (QTL), and a mapping population of recombinant inbred lines (RILs) derived from a Landsberg erecta-0 x Columbia-4 cross confirmed the multifactorial nature of the observed natural variations in leaf architecture.
Overdominant quantitative trait loci for yield and fitness in tomato
It is proposed that the alliance of ODO QTL with higher reproductive fitness was selected for in evolution and was domesticated by man to improve yields of crop plants.
QTL analysis of leaf morphology in tetraploid Gossypium (cotton)
The findings of this study reinforce the findings of several other studies in suggesting that the D-subgenome of tetraploid cotton has been subject to a relatively greater rate of evolution than the A- subgenome, subsequent to polyploid formation.
Genealogy and fine mapping of obscuravenosa, a gene affecting the distribution of chloroplasts in leaf veins, and evidence of selection during breeding of tomatoes (Lycopersicon esculentum; Solanaceae).
The data suggest that the prevalence of obv in nearly all processing varieties may have resulted from its tight linkage to a QTL conferring a more compact, and horticulturally desirable, plant habit.
Identification of Enzyme Activity Quantitative Trait Loci in a Solanum lycopersicum × Solanum pennellii Introgression Line Population1[W][OA]
The results point to the genetic control of individual enzyme activities being under the control of a complex program that is dominated by a network of trans-acting genes.
