Patent
Seminis Vegetable Seeds Inc. and PLANT BIOSCIENCE Ltd | Date: 2016-11-22

The present invention relates to a method for determining the genotype of a Cruciferous vegetable plant for a plant with an increased glucosinolate level, comprising obtaining a sample of nucleic acids from said plant or a portion thereof and detecting in said nucleic acids a polymorphism at the Myb28 locus that is genetically linked to an increased glucosinolate level. The polymorphism may comprises at least one of: a) a single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) at a position corresponding to nucleotide 83, 136, 226, 563, 610, 830, 995, 1116, 1513, 1577, 1606, 1620, 1825, 1863, 1877 or 2026 of SEQ ID NO: 1, or b) a polymorphism in the number of nucleotides present between nucleotides 323 and 332, between nucleotides 521 and 524, between nucleotides 783 and 786, between nucleotides and 909 and 914, between nucleotides 1365 and 1369, between 1811 and 1821, or between nucleotides 2046 and 2056 of SEQ ID NO: 1, or c) a polymorphism in the number of nucleotides present between nucleotides 836 and 837, between nucleotides 867 and 868, or between nucleotides 943 and 944 of SEQ ID NO: 1.

The present invention provides an elite lettuce plant comprising an introgression from Lactuca virosa on chromosome 7, wherein said introgression comprises a single gene conferring improved resistance to Bremia lactucae relative to a plant lacking said introgression. The present invention further provides a Lactuca sativa plant comprising an introgression from Lactuca virosa on chromosome 7, wherein said introgression comprises a single gene conferring improved resistance to Bremia lactucae relative to a plant lacking said introgression. The plants are obtainable from seed comprising said introgression as deposited under ATCC Accession Number PTA-121598. In a further aspect, the invention provides a method for selecting a lettuce plant with improved resistance to Bremia lactucae, comprising: a) crossing an elite lettuce plant of the invention with itself or with a second lettuce plant of a different genotype to produce one or more progeny plants; and b) selecting a progeny plant comprising said introgression.
