The or mutation in Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa L. ssp. pekinensis) is a recessive, single-locus mutation that causes the head leaves of the plant to accumulate carotenoids and turn orange. In China, considerable attention has been focused in recent years on breeding the variety with orange head leaves. In this study, sequence-characterized amplified region (SCAR) markers linked to the or gene were identified based on random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and amplified fragment length… CONTINUE READING
