Sequence polymorphism in BrCRTISO1, encoding carotenoid isomerase, is identified in orange-colored B. rapa , and three resulting gene-based markers will be useful for marker-assisted breeding of OC cultivars. Carotenoids are color pigments that are important for protection against excess light in plants and essential sources of retinols and vitamin A for… CONTINUE READING
