The purposes of this investigation are to map plant height QTLs using molecular markers and to analyze their genetic effects in maize. A F 2-3 population from an elite hybrid (Zong3 * 87-1) was utilized for evaluating plant heights at two locations, Wuhan and Xiangfan in South China, using a randomized complete block design with three replications. The mapping population included 266 families. A genetic linkage map containing 150 SSR and 16 RFLP markers was constructed with a total length of 2475.9 cM and an average interval of 14.9cM. Totally, 11 QTLs (LOD>2.5) affecting plant heights were mapped on 7 different chromosomes using composite interval mapping. Eight out of the 11 QTLs were detected in two locations, 7 of which showed the same direction of increase in plant height, while 3 QTLs were detected only at one of the two locations. The contributions to phenotypic variations for a single QTL varied between 4.18% and 16.72%. Only one out of three main-effect QTLs contributing to plant heights appeared to be overdominant.Collection: CIMMYT Publications Collection
