Tanhuanpää, Pirjo; Kalendar, Ruslan; Schulman, Alan and Kiviharju, Elina (2008) A major gene for grain cadmium accumulation in oat (Avena sativa L.). In: NJF Report, Nordic Association of Agricultural Scientists, 4 (7), p. 88.
Four DNA markers associated with Cd concentration were found: two RAPDs (random
amplified polymorphic DNAs), one REMAP (retrotransposon-microsatellite amplified
polymorphism), and one SRAP (sequence-related amplified polymorphism). The
markers were assigned to one linkage group which exhibited a QTL (quantitative trait
locus) representing a major gene for Cd accumulation. The markers can be used in
future breeding programmes for healthy oat cultivars.
