[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: InBrassica, self-incompatibility (SI) can be overcome by CO2 application, an effective method for obtaining numerous inbred lines for F, commercial seed. We previously reported two different
S-alleles ofBrassica campestris, S733 and S734, with extremely different degrees of susceptibility to this gas. In the current study, we raised a cross-population between
those two genetic lines, and analyzed their reaction level of self-incompatibility to CO2 (RLSICO2). Here, all 40 of our progeny from the F1 cross-population were susceptible, maintaining high values of RLSICO2. This suggests that the susceptible line, S734, is dominant to the insusceptible line, S733. We also generated an F2 selfing-population of each crossed progeny, S733♀ S734♂ and S733♂ S734♀, to assess the RLSICO2 of each individual. PCR-RFLP analysis was performed to determine the S-genotype of the F2 population. The S734 allele segregated in a theoretical ratio of the dominant trait, and the RLSICO2 was consistent with the dominance relationship. Therefore, we have now demonstrated that high RLSICO2 in β.campestris is controlled by a dominant gene.
