Key message

Regional association analysis of 50 re-sequenced Chinese semi-winter rapeseed accessions in combination with co-expression analysis reveal candidate genes affecting oil accumulation in Brassica napus.


One of the breeding goals in rapeseed production is to enhance the seed oil content to cater to the increased demand for vegetable oils due to a growing global population. To investigate the genetic basis of variation in seed oil content, we used 60 K Brassica Infinium SNP array along with phenotype data of 203 Chinese semi-winter rapeseed accessions to perform a genome-wide analysis of haplotype blocks associated with the oil content. Nine haplotype regions harbouring lipid synthesis/transport-, carbohydrate metabolism- and photosynthesis-related genes were identified as significantly associated with the oil content and were mapped to chromosomes A02, A04, A05, A07, C03, C04, C05, C08 and C09, respectively. Regional association analysis of 50 re-sequenced Chinese semi-winter rapeseed accessions combined with transcriptome datasets from 13 accessions was further performed on these nine haplotype regions. This revealed natural variation in the BnTGD3-A02 and BnSSE1-A05 gene regions correlated with the phenotypic variation of the oil content within the A02 and A04 chromosome haplotype regions, respectively. Moreover, co-expression network analysis revealed that BnTGD3-A02 and BnSSE1-A05 were directly linked with fatty acid beta-oxidation-related gene BnKAT2-C04, thus forming a molecular network involved in the potential regulation of seed oil accumulation. The results of this study could be used to combine favourable haplotype alleles for further improvement of the seed oil content in rapeseed.
