Tocopherols are essential micronutrients for humans and animals, with several beneficial effects in plants. Among cereals, only maize grains contain high concentrations of tocopherols. In this investigation we analyzed, during 2004 and 2005, by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC), a population of 233 recombinant inbred lines (RIL) which were derived from two diverse parents and had extremely variable tocopherol content and composition. A genetic map was constructed using 208… CONTINUE READING
