A molecular marker linked to the male gender of Actinidia arguta Siebold & Zucci

Published on

To distinguish the female plants in early stage, BSA and
RAMP techniques were employed to screen and
characterize molecular markers linked to hardy kiwi gender.
One RAMP marker GA(CT)4/S129450, was found to be tightly
linked to the male gender. Then the RAMP maker was cloned,
sequenced, and conversed into SCAR marker. And early
stage selection was carried out using the SCAR marker on
142 F1 progeny from crossing between Yongshan 11 and
Yongshan 5. It is the first report on distinguishing the gender
of hardy kiwi in early stage.
