Abstract

A DH population containing 81 DH lines from an indica-japonica cross of rice and an RFLP linkage map consisting of 232 markers were used to map quantitative trait loci(QTLs) for harvest index, biomass,grain yield,sink capacity and plant height by a computer program QTLMapper1.0 based on mixed linear models. A total of 21 significant main-effect QTLs and 9 pairs of epistatic loci were detected. Of these, three detected QTLs for grain yield collectively accounted for 42% of the phenotypic variation with a LOD of 7.10. These three grain yield QTLs were corresponded either to QTLs for harvest index or QTLs for biomass in both locations and directions of additive effects, which sheds light on the genetic basis of the formula’ grain yield = biomass × harvest index’. Four detected QTLs for harvest index collectively explained 46% of the total phenotypic variation and four QTLs for biomass joinly accounted for 64% of the trait variation. No coincidence of harvest index QTLs with any biomass QTLs was found, therefore indicating the possibility of pyramiding favorable alleles for both traits through gene recombination so as to obtain a genotype possessing both high harvest index and heavy plant biomass. Five QTLs for plant height were detected that cummulatively explained 64% of the phenotypic variation with a LOD of 11.62. Among these, three with smaller effects respectively co-located with some of the QTLs for biomass, sink capacity and/or grain yield, but not with any of harvest index QTLs, thus suggesting that plant height was to some extent directly associated with’source’ and ’sink’ but not with ’ transportation’ of the’ source-transportation-sink’ concept, at least in this genetic background and environment. In view of a somewhat low resolution of the genetic map used in the study and the fact that when plant height QTLs co-located with those for yield and/or yield related traits, these co-located QTLs were all in the same directions of additive effects, it is more likely that these QTLs co-located in a same chromosomal region might be a single QTL which have effects on multiple traits. If this is true, the above observation have led us to assume that QTLs which have pleotropic effects on yield and/or yield related traits and plant height are very different from those which had relatively large effects only on plant height. The former contribute strongly to yield and/or yield related traits but weakly to plant height while tthe later contribute mainly to plant height. Obviously, due to that an increase of plant height is always coupled with an increase in lodging susceptibility, discriminating between above two types of QTLs is critical in breaking the trait’s undesired association in breeding for improved yield potential of rice. In addition, based on the co-location analysis of main-effect QTLs for the studied traits, five genomic regions were found to be highly associated with harvest index,biomass,sink capacity and grain yield.
