Assessing genetic diversity, population structure, and linkage disequilibrium is important in identifying potential parental lines for breeding programs. In this study, we assessed the genetic and phenotypic variation of 174 normal maize (Zea mays) inbred lines and made association analyses with respect to nine agronomical traits, using 150 simple sequence repeats (SSR). From population structure analysis, the lines were divided into three groups. Association analysis was done with a mixed linear model and a general linear model. Twenty-one marker-trait associations involving 19 SSR markers were observed using the mixed model, with a significance level of P < 0.01. All of these associations, as well as 120 additional marker-trait associations involving 77 SSR markers, were observed with the general model. Two significant marker-trait associations (SMTAs) were detected at P ≤ 0.0001. In the mixed linear model, one locus was associated with water content, two loci were associated with 100-kernel weight, setted ear length, ear thickness and stem thickness; three loci were associated with ear height, four loci were associated with total kernel weight and five loci were associated with plant height. These results should prove useful to breeders in the selection of parental lines and markers. © 2015, The Genetics Society of Korea and Springer-Science and Media. Source

In this study, a total of 80 F7:8 recombinant inbred lines (RIL), derived from a cross between dent corn inbred line, Mo17 and waxy inbred line KW7, were evaluated for 11 flowering and yield-related traits. Correlation analysis was performed among the 11 flowering and yield-related traits. DA showed the highest correlation with DS (0.747∗∗). DS via ASI (0.619∗∗), TC via SC (0.595∗∗), CB via ER (0.535∗∗) showed relatively high correlation coefficients than the other trait combinations. Quantitative trait loci (QTL) and epistatic interactions were detected for 11 flowering and yield-related traits. Our study detected a total of 32 QTLs and 40 epistatic interactions for 11 flowering and yieldrelated traits. The 15 QTLs were major QTLs which had more than 15% phenotypic variation (16.29~82.45%). qKT9 had the highest phenotypic variance (82.45%) in marker interval between umc1634 and wx1. The qDS1a and qASI1a were colocated within a region flanked by two adjacent SSR markers on chromosome 1 (umc1354 and bnlg1179) and qDS1b and qASI1b were co-located within a region flanked by two adjacent SSR markers on chromosome 1 (umc1166 and umc1976). In addition, two QTLs, qCB3 and qDA3 shared umc1949 and Two QTL, q10V5 and qDS5 also shared umc2373. Another QTL, qER10 and qASI10 shared umc1645. This tight link supported high correlation of each trait. Finally, these SSR marker pairs are useful selection tools for screening flowering and yield related traits. To perform MAS efficiently, it is important to identify genes or traits on the chromosomal segment linked to the target gene. Thus, the detection and confirmation of loci associated with main agronomic traits presented may provide greater opportunities for maize breeders to improve quality with marker associated selection.

A maize genetic linkage map was generated using SSR and SNP markers in a F7:8 recombinant inbred line (RIL) population derived from a cross of waxy corn (KW7) and dent corn (Mo17). A total of 465 markers, including 459 SSR and 6 SNP markers, were assigned to 10 linkage groups which spanned 2,656.5 cM with an average genetic distance between markers of 5.7 cM, and the number of loci per linkage group ranged from 39 to 55. The SSR (85.4%) and SNP (83.3%) markers showed Mendelian segregation ratios in the RIL population at a 5% significance threshold. In linkage analysis of six SNP loci associated with kernel starch synthesis genes (ae1, bt2, sh1, sh2, su1, and wx1), all six loci were successfully mapped and are closely linked with SSR markers in chromosomes 3 (sh2), 4 (su1 and bt2), 5 (ae1), and 9 (sh1 and wx1). The SSR markers linked with genes in starch synthesis may be utilized in marker assisted breeding programs. The resulting genetic map will be useful in dissection of quantitative traits and the identification of superior QTLs from the waxy hybrid corn. Additionally, these data support further genetic analysis and development of maize breeding programs. © The Genetics Society of Korea and Springer 2012. Source

The amino acid profiles and fatty acid composition of Agrocybe chaxingu were studied to evaluate the nutritional value of this species. The most abundant essential amino acid and non-essential amino acid were leucine and glutamate, respectively. The fruiting body of A. chaxingu contained 0.61. g leucine/100. g of edible weight, while those of Pleurotus ostreatus and Flammulina velutipes contained 0.53. g and 0.38. g leucine/100. g of edible weight, respectively. The content of glutamate ranged from 1.00 to 1.20. g/100. g of edible weight. Total amount of the essential amino acids of A. chaxingu (2.70. g/100. g of edible weight) was higher than those of the P. ostreatus and F. velutipes used in this study. Linoleic acid, a polyunsaturated fatty acid, was the major component in A. chaxingu (69.3% of total fatty acids), and the second highest component of fatty acids was palmitic acid (13.7%). The amount of MUFA (monounsaturated fatty acid) and PUFA (polyunsaturated fatty acid) in the fruiting body of A. chaxingu was 5.0% and 69.3% of the total fatty acid content, respectively. © 2010 Elsevier Inc.

Improvement of liver function is one of the most popular commercial health claims of functional foods in Asian countries, including Korea. After examining the potential of several traditional Korean wild vegetables for enhancing liver function, we found that Youngia denticulata Kitam. has strong hepatoprotective effects against oxidative stress induced by tert-butylhydroperoxide (t-BHP). We are the first to report that the extract and ethyl acetate fractions of Y. denticulata have radical scavenging activities and inhibit oxidative stress-induced cell death and DNA damage in HepG2 cells. The extract and ethyl acetate fractions significantly decreased cellular reactive oxygen species production and apoptosis induced by t-BHP in HepG2 cells. In addition, they prevented the depletion of cellular glutathione, which is an important defense molecule against oxidizing xenobiotics. Chlorogenic acid and 3,5-dicaffeoylquinic acid were found to be major active components responsible for the activity of Y. denticulata and could serve as marker compounds for standardization. These data suggest that Y. denticulata could be promoted as a potential antioxidative functional food candidate, particularly for hepatoprotection against oxidative stress. © 2011 Mary Ann Liebert, Inc.
