  • a Fruit shape is measured as the average ratio of length to diameter of fruit in the recombinant and nonrecombinant class, respectively.

  • b Significance of Student's t-test: **, P < 0.01; ***, P < 0.001; ****, P < 0.0001; NS, not significant. Only parents heterozygous for sun show significant differences in progeny tests.

  • Interval in which the recombination event occurred is italic. Markers were derived from BAC ends that mapped near sun (Figure 2). A score of 1 indicates Sun1642; 2 indicates heterozygous; 3 indicates LA1589. Recombinant interval surrounding the sun locus is underlined.
