Effective Procedure for Development of EST-SSR Markers Using cDNA Library


The present study was conducted to develop EST-SSR markers using the cDNA library from rice plant. Total RNA extracted from the leaves of brown plant hopper resistance gene originated from a rice cultivar “Cheongcheong” and sensitive rice cultivar “Nakdong” were used to synthesize a cDNA library. As a result of analyzing the cDNA library, the 17 EST-SSR primer sets were developed. This study enables to provide effective marker assisted selection (MAS) methods on the selection of white-backed planthopper resistance gene originated from a rice plant more simply, quickly and precisely. Furthermore, using this marker’s advantage of deriving from cDNA, it is possible to identify the white-backed planthopper resistance gene. In addition, this study introduces a technique for construction of a cDNA library safely without using radioactivity.
