Molecular characterization and transcriptome analysis of orange head Chinese cabbage (Brassica rapa L. ssp. pekinensis)

Zhang, Junxiang; Yuan, Hui; Fei, Zhangjun; Pogson, Barry J.; Zhang, Lugang; Li, Li


The orange head phenotype of Br - or resulted from a large insertion in carotenoid isomerase (BrCRTISO) . Comparative transcriptome analysis revealed that the mutation affected the expression of abundant transcription factor genes. A new orange trait-specific marker was developed for marker-assisted breeding. Orange head leaves are a desirable quality trait for Chinese cabbage. Our previous fine mapping identified BrCRTISO as the Br-or candidate gene for the orange Chinese cabbage mutant. Here,...[Show more]
