      Abstract:Association analysis is an approach to identify the relationship of molecular markers or candidate genes with morphological traits in a given population based on linkage disequilibrium. Fifty-nine polymorphic SSR markers were applied for genotyping on 192 core collections of pea (Pisum sativum L.) to identify their genetic diversity,and to detect linkage disequilibrium of pair wise loci in the targeted population composed of the 192 core collections. The association analysis between 59 SSR loci and 19 morphological traits was performed by using TASSEL GLM(General Linear Model) program. High polymorphism and various degree of linkage disequilibrium (LD) were detected among SSR loci. Associations between 32 SSR loci and 14 morphological traits were detected, some loci were found associated with two or more morphological traits.

      Abstract:Abstract: Drought is a serious, worldwide problem for crop production and also affects yields of cotton. This paper conducted on different drought resistance of 41 cotton germplasm at germination stage by the experiment of 15%PEG6000 vertically rolled paper tests.We determined 8 indentification indices such as germination energy, germination rate, seedling length of 3 days, total seedling fresh biomass of 3 days, hypocotyl length of 7 days, radicle length of 7 days, radicle length of 7 days/Hypocotyl length of 7 days, growth rate of sprout length. The results showed that the 8 indices were lower under 15%PEG6000 than water controlled condition and the coefficients of variation became bigger except for total seedling fresh biomass of 3 days indicating that cotton germination was inhibited by 15%PEG6000 and the different varieties(lines) were evidently different. At the same time the relative values of T/CK were calculated. We screened 7 indentification indices such as relative germination energy, relative germination rate, relative seedling length of 3 days, relative hypocotyl length of 7 days, relative radicle length of 7 days, relative radicle length of 7 days/Hypocotyl length of 7 days, relative growth rate of seedling length by the way of variance analysis and principal component analysis. The results showed that this 7 indices had some connection with germination drought resistance. The subordinate function values of cotton germplasm under PEG6000 drought treatment and the correlation coefficient were analyzed by the 7 indices. The average subordinate function values stood for ability of germination drought resistance. With the increase of the average subordinate function values the cotton germination drought resistance ability was increasing. The results showed that relative radicle length of 7 days was significantly related to the average subordinate function values(r=0.839**). There were 7 accessions of cotton germplasm with high drought resistance ability at germination stage such as Ji668,Lumianyan21, 9409xuanxi,DP99B,Chuangmina22, sGKZhong980,Han177 and 10 accessions of cotton germplasm with medium drought resistance ability such as Zhong23A-12,Zhong23AkanmianF12,CRI35,Ji1286, GKZ19F6,Shuangyu97-2067,Guangzi2,Naigaowen-2,ZhongS9612, Guangzi1.

      Abstract:In order to evaluate the diversity of morphological characteristics and to provide a criterion for choosing example varieties in rice DUS testing. Diversity analysis, including observed number of alleles, effective number of alleles and Shannon's information index, were conducted with 49 rice varieties which listed as example varieties in the DUS testing guidelines as material, combining with the 59 morphological characteristics investigated at Hanzhou in 2008. The clustering analysis for the example varieties was also conducted according to their species diversity parameters. The results showed that total of 201 and 262 alleles for 59 morphological characteristics were observed in the indica and japonica rice group, respectively, with an average of 3.4068 and 4.4407 alleles for each characteristic in the two subspecies. The Shannon's diversity index averaged from 59 morphological characteristics were 0.8318 with a range of 0~1.7674 and 0.9828 with a range of 0~1.8547 in the indica and japonica rice group, respectively. Several groups, with each includes 2-3 rice varieties with similarity over 0.7, were found in both indica and japonica rice group, based on the clustering results. The results indicated that the 49 example varieties, which with rich diversity in morphological characteristics, could be used for demonstration and adjusting for characteristics' describing in DUS testing. The 49 rice example varieties could be reduced to 43 according the threshold with similarity of 0.7. The result could provide a criterion for selection and optimization of example varieties in rice DUS testing system and could also give a reference for developing DUS testing guidelines for other plant species.

      Abstract:Fushiguang, Tengxi138, Shangyu397 and Wuyoudao1 are the founder parents of rice breeding at cold region from the 1990s. 50 SSR markers were used to cluster and PCO analyze the the founder parents and their derivatives. The results showed that 150 alleles were detected and allelic variation of single SSR loci ranged from 2-6, mean allelic variation was 3; PIC ranged from 0.0725-0.6845, mean 0.3655; 51 experiment varieties were separated into four classes and four founder parents were in four classes separately; four founder parents were far from each other and their derivatives distributed around them through PCO analysis. Only 3 in 39 rare alleles detected existed in founder parents. This showed that genetic improvement of cold rice has progressed to surround a few founder parents in recent years. Founder parents has transmitted their most fine genes to derivatives and pedigree analysis has the same result with SSR and PCO analysis.

      2011, 12(6):872-880.

      Abstract (2125) HTML (0) PDF 580.51 K (2548) Comment (0) Favorites

      Abstract:It is very important for inheritance and plant breeding to definite the changes of agronomic traits and the relationship with production. Agronomic traits and production of 249 soybean germplasms were investigated under field condition for 2 years, and multi-statistics analysis was then applied to analysis the results. The results showed that the coefficient of variation (CV) of germplasm of soybean based on agronomic characters and production were 6.2%-78.0% and 6.3%-48.5%, respectively. CV for growth period was small because of the similar ecotype of the germplasm resources in the area of Huang-Huai-Hai plain. CV for stem nodes number was also small. CVs for plant height, effective branch number, bottom pods height, the pods number per plant, grain number of single plant, number of seeds per pod, grain weight per plant, 100-seed weight and yield per unit area were large. Agronomic traits and production were significant different between cultivars. Effects of ecological factors (including temperature, precipitation and sunshine hours) of different years on agronomic characters and production of soybean were large. Agronomic traits between different years were also significantly different. Agronomic traits could be simplified for 4 independent indexes correlating with production by using principal component analysis in 2 years. Furthermore, it could be quantified the relationship between agronomic characters and production according to establish set of equation Y=17.5-1.76x1+1.32x2+0.30x3+2.50x4 and Y=198.8-3.12x1+7.71x2+0.08x3+2.71x4 in 2 years between them. The characters of all type cultivars in 2 years were analyzed by using the method of cluster analysis for 5 types, respectively, to provide theoretical basis for breeding new soybean cultivars of high and stable yield.

      Abstract (2105) HTML (0) PDF 442.19 K (2508) Comment (0) Favorites

      Abstract:Eleven grain quality traits of 76 cultivars (lines) from Yunnan Provincial were analysed using the method of phenotypic principal component and cluster analysis. The results indicated that: (1) The mean of amylose content and milled rice rate met 1 and 3 level of edible rice grain quality standard, respectively. And those of brown rice rate, transparency, alkali digested value and gel consistency fit 2 level of that standard.Whereas those of other traits were below 3 level. Among variation coefficients of the grain quality traits, those of brown rice rate and alkali digested value were lowest,,while that of chalky area was highest, and the follow was chalky rice rate . (2) There existed complex relationship among rice grain quality traits. (3) The cumulative contribution rate of milled rice rate, chalky rice rate and chalky area to grain quality was 49.6% among six principal component factors affecting grain quality traits. (4) 76 cultivars (lines) could be classified into four groups according to genetic distance. There were 52 cultivars in No.1 groups, indicating near genetic distance and narrow genetic basis among most of the cultivars. In order to improve the grain quality of Yunnan japonica cultivars, chalky rice rate and chalky area should be reduced while milled rice rate and head rice rate are necessary increased .At the same time, it is also important to broaden the genetic basis in japonica rice breeding.

      Abstract (2169) HTML (0) PDF 464.91 K (2600) Comment (0) Favorites

      Abstract:Isoflavone contents were analyzed by HPLC methods in 100 representative soybean cultivars from different regions in this study. The results showed that all of 100 cultivars contained six of major isoflavone components in soybean seeds, including daidzin (D), glycitin (GL), genistin (G), malonyldaidzin (MD), malonylglycitin (MGL) and malonylgenistin (MG), and there were significant difference on the isoflavone content among ecological regions and varieties, which explained the abundant genetic variation of isoflavone content in the soybean germplasm. The average of total isoflavone content (2465.48 ug/g) in soybean cultivars from south region was the highest, and that from north region was the lowest (1705.89 ug/g). Coefficient of variation (CV) for the six major isoflavone components was ranged from 33.44% to 52.03%. Correlation analysis showed that there was significantly positive correlation among the isoflavone components, in which correlation coefficient between total isoflavone content and malonylgenistin was the maximum (r = 0.958 **); A significantly negative correlation was presented between total isoflavone content and oil content (r = -0.323 **). Two soybean cultivars with high isoflavone content (cv. Pingdingheidou, 4459.91ug/g and cv. PI-567479, 4073.95 ug/g), and two cultivars with low isoflavone content (cv. Chasedou, 857.74 ug/g and cv. Mufeng1, 922.82 ug/g) were selected for soybean breeding and genetic study on the isoflavone.

      2011, 12(6):934-940.

      Abstract (2199) HTML (0) PDF 490.82 K (2979) Comment (0) Favorites

      Abstract:In the present study, the viability of 14 thousands seed accessions, belonging to 34 crops, were detected after being stored at the National Genebank of China for 20 to 23 years. Results showed that the viability of 92.9% of the accessions were higher than 85%. Significant viability decline was detected in 155 accessions from broad bean, red adzuki bean, jute, castor, sugar beet, watermelon, tobacco and forage. A total of 2078 seed accessions from 8 crops, including wheat, soybean, sorghum, millet, cotton, peanut, common bean and watermelon, were uesd for seedling emergence survey. The results showed that each surveyed accession succeeded in seedling emergence, but the emergence percentage of 8 accessions was lower than 10%. The seedling emergence percentage was lower than the mean initial germination percentage. Among the 8 crops, the seedling emergence percentage of common bean was the highest, with a mean value of 86.2% of 126 accessions, which was only 9.3% lower than the initial germination percentage. The lowest seedling emergence percentage was found in millet seeds, with a mean value of only 39.2%, which was 51.3% lower than the initial germination percentage. To sum up, most of the collections in the National Genenbank of China can be safely conserved for more than 20 years, especially the cereal seeds, but as for the seed accessions that had showed significant reduction in the mean monitored germination percentage, for example, broad bean, red adzuki bean, etc, the viability should be monitored more frequently in order to assure the long-term safe conservation of these germplasm.

      2011, 12(6):948-956.

      Abstract (2005) HTML (0) PDF 0.00 Byte (3458) Comment (0) Favorites

      Abstract:Mungbean breeding objective traits are mostly controlled by multiple quantitative genes. The phenotypes of mungbean are affected by environment greatly. In order to analysis the genetic of the yield-associated traits in mungbean, RIL populations (F10) derived from the cross between an economical parent Berken and a wild parent ACC41 were planted in Beijing and Nanjing for their yield-associated agronomic traits evaluation. The results showed that in total of 63 QTLs were investigated in Beijing and Guangxi (25 in Beijing and 38 in Guangxi), located on twelve linkage groups except the 13th group. Most of the QTLs were detected in single environment, indicating the significant interactions between QTL and environments. Only 6 QTLs controlling pod length, 100-seed weight and day to mature were detected in both Beijing and Guangxi environment. Those QTLs will be of special significance for mungbean’s molecular-marker-assisted-breeding. Two regions on linkage group 5 and 9 with clustered QTLs relevant to multiple yield-associated agronomic traits and five linkage group with bundled QTLs relevant to a single agronomic traits identified in the study may provide the genetic loci of the universal yield QTL.

    • Conservation and divergence of TaDEP1 genes in common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) and its donor species

      2011, 12(6):957-964.

      Abstract (2733) HTML (0) PDF 1.40 M (3381) Comment (0) Favorites

      Abstract:The rice DEP1 (DENSE AND ERECT PANICLE1) gene is an important regulator that can enhance meristematic activity, reduce internode distance, increase per spike grain number, and eventually increase the rice yield. We report here the cloning of the genomic sequence of the wheat orthologous gene TaDEP1 which contains five exons and 4 introns. Genomic sequence comparison revealed a region that can be used as molecular marker (Ta956) to distinguish homoeoalleles of hexaploid wheat. Ta956 was used to map TaDEP1 to wheat chromosomes 5A, 5B, and 5D by using Chinese Spring nulli-tetrasomic lines. Sequences corresponding to Ta956 were then isolated and sequenced from hexaploid wheat, its putative donor species and tetraploid wheat. Sequence comparison showed that most variations were present at introns, particularly between the B and D homoeoalleles. Domain analysis showed that proteins from the D genome of hexaploid wheat was more different to those on the A and D genomes, suggesting functional divergence among TaDEP1 proteins from the A, B, and D genomes. The potential of using Ta956 as a marker for variety identification is discussed.

      Abstract:In this study, 5 introgression lines (ILs) and Zong3 were selected to develop segregated populations by Griffing Ⅳ diallel crossing for identifying of QTL for row number per ear and assay of QTL interaction. The SSR markers were used to screen genotype of ILs and F2 individual. In the IL ×Zong3 F2 population, only one QTL for row number per ear was detected in population derived from ILs, with 10.68% phenotypic variation. In populations derived from crossing among ILs, total of 9 QTLs were detected, on chromosome 1, 3 and 8, with 4.53% to 6.52% phenotypic variation. In addition, 2 pairs interactions among QTL, 10 pairs interactions between QTL and introgressed fragment in which QTL did not was detected were found. The sum of phenotypic variation explained by all of interaction pairs was significantly higher than that explained by QTL in each of F2 population. These results indicated that epitasis plays an important role in genetic controlling of row number per ear in maize.

      Abstract:To optimize the concentrations of CuSO4 and iron source used in wheat embryo culture, investigation on the influence of Fe and Cu ions in culture media on wheat regeneration was performed using CB037, Xinchun9, and Bobwhite as materials. The results showed that the the efficiencies of embryogenic callus induction and green shoot induction has not difference when the concentration of CuSO4 was from 0.1 to 4.1 祄ol L-1, and 6.1 祄ol L-1 was toxic for mature embryos of wheat. Regeneration efficiency from the mature embryos of CB037 was obviously improved on the media containing 40 祄ol L-1 iron source. The optimal concentration of iron source were 40 to 50 祄ol L-1 when the immature embryos of CB037 were used as explants, both of callus differentiation and green shoots induction in this level were higher than them in the level of 20 祄ol L-1(at random). For the immature embryo culture of Xinchun9 and Bobwhite, the ideal concentration of iron source was 20 祄ol L-1. The sensibility of different genotypes to iron source is discrepant. In average, the order for regeneration potential of immature embryos among the three wheat genotypes used in this study is CB037, Xinchun 9 and Bobwhite.

      Abstract:Diversity of cytoplasmic male sterility is key measure for solving grain quality, resistance and yield of three line hybrids. Sterile plants H236A was found in offspring from Miyang 46 as female parent. Its sterile type and abortion degree were determined by hybridization and selfing; Its pollen grain fertility, abortion shape, and abortion stage were studied by 1%I2-KI staining and observation of Leica fluorescence microscope DM 2500 on mature pollens. Results showed that H236A was cytoplasmic male sterility, which abortive degree was above 99.8%. Pollen grains belong to typical abortive was 83.17% and round abortive was 16.83%, no stained abortive pollen grains. Abortive stage of H236A was in single nuclear development period. Abortive shapes of pollen grains were in varied forms, such as irregular, round and spindle etc. Phenomenon that cytoplasm of late microspore moved directionally and formed cytoplasm bridge was observed clearly. Division of mature pollens abortive stage and shape were also discussed in this paper.
