Identification of a RAPD marker linked to the pendula gene in Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst. f. pendula)


, : Identification of a RAPD marker linked to the pendula gene in Norway spruce (Picea abies (L.) Karst. f. pendula). Tag. Theoretical and Applied Genetics. Theoretische und Angewandte Genetik 91(6-7): 1092-1094

The pendula phenotype of Norway spruce [Picea abies (L.) Karst f. pendula] is characterized by narrow crowns and strong apical dominance and is controlled by a single dominant gene (P). This defined genetic control presents one of the few opportunities to map a single gene controlling a morphological trait in a forest tree. We used random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers and bulked segregant analysis to identify one locus OPH10 720, linked to the pendula gene. The estimated recombination frequency (r) between OPH10 720 and P was 0.046 (SEr = 0.032). Mapping of the pendula gene is an important first step towards the ultimate identification and cloning of this gene.
