Genetic control of rebaudioside A and C concentration in leaves of the sweet herb, Stevia rebaudiana



Genetic control of rebaudioside A and C concentration in leaves of the sweet herb, Stevia rebaudiana



Canadian Journal of Plant Science 79(1): 85-92



Stevia rebaudiana produces steviol glycoside sweeteners in its leaves that are up to 240 times sweeter than sugar. Using F2 population from crosses between two sets of parents with divergent glycoside profiles, inheritance of rebaudiosides A and C were studied. Segregation in the first set of F2s showed that the presence/absence of rebaudioside A was controlled by a single dominant gene, but that the actual proportions of rebaudioside A may be controlled by multiple loci or alleles.
