Abstract

Novel mutant alleles related to isoflavone content are useful for breeding programs to improve the disease resistance and nutritional content of soybean. However, identification of mutant alleles from high-density mutant libraries is expensive and time-consuming because soybean has a large, complicated genome. Here, we identified the gene responsible for increased genistein-to-daidzein ratio in seed of the mutant line F333ES017D9. For this purpose, we used a time- and cost-effective approach based on selective genotyping of a small number of F2 plants showing the mutant phenotype with nearest-neighboring-nucleotide substitution-high-resolution melting analysis markers, followed by alignment of short reads obtained by next-generation sequencing analysis with the identified locus. In the mutant line, GmCHR5 harbored a single-base deletion that caused a change in the substrate flow in the isoflavone biosynthetic pathway towards genistein. Mutated GmCHR5 was expressed at a lower level during seed development than wild-type GmCHR5. Ectopic overexpression of GmCHR5 increased the production of daidzein derivatives in both the wild-type and mutant plants. The present strategy will be useful for accelerating identification of mutant alleles responsible for traits of interest in agronomically important crops.
