The lethal gene 'Luteus-Pa' is found in cacao genotypes (Theobroma cacao) of the Parinari (Pa) series, from Peru. Seedlings affected by this gene have yellowing leaves and subsequently die. We mapped this gene based on microsatellite markers and RAPDs, in order to elucidate the inheritance of 'Luteus-Pa' and investigate possible lethal mechanisms. DNA samples of genitors were amplified with 87 SSR and 64 RAPD primers. The SSR primers amplified 65 RAPD primers, giving 179 polymorphic bands.doi:10.4238/vol9-3gmr889 pmid:20830669 fatcat:o5cgfpm7ozfsxasn7pc5oh35wm
