Table 5 Observed alleles and frequencies of the favourable allelic class of PSY1 , lcyE and crtRB1 functional markers

From: Marker-trait association analysis of functional gene markers for provitamin A levels across diverse tropical yellow maize inbred lines

Marker Expected allelic series Allelic variants observed** Favourable allele Frequency of the favourable allele (%)
PSY1 SNP7 A, C A A 100
PSY1 InDel1 0, 378 0 0 100
lcyE 5′TE* 1, 2, 3, 4  0’, 1, 3 1 12
lcyE SNP (216) G, T G, T G 83
lcyE 3′indel 8, 0 8, 0 0 38
crtRB1 5′TE 1, 2, 3 1, 2 2 18
crtRB1 indel4 12, 0 12, 0 12 19
crtRB1 3′TE 1, 2, 3 1, 3 1 18
  1. *For lcyE 5′TE the vast majority of the inbred lines (> 70%) did not yield any amplification, and thus scored as  0’ alleles to represent no amplification, not deletion.
  2. **There were individuals that were heterozygous for some of the marker classes. Description of markers and expected alleles are presented in Table 2.
