QTLs for PGM activity in whole-seedling extracts

The chromosome number, genetic location (cM), and nearest marker are given. Significance was calculated based on LOD values (**, P < 0.05; *, P < 0.10). Allelic effects are indicated with + (Ler > Cvi) and - (Ler < Cvi). Total explained variance was 64.2%.
