Seed pods of wild-type narrow-leafed lupins (Lupinus angustifolius L.) shatter upon maturity, dispersing their seeds. Recessive alleles of the genes Tardus and Lentus that confer reduced pod shattering have been incorporated into domesticated cultivars to facilitate harvesting. Tardus was mapped in an F8 recombinant inbred population of a cross between domesticated and wild lupins. A microsatellite–anchored fragment length polymorphism marker (TaM1), which mapped 2.1 cM from Tardus, was converted to a locus-specific PCR assay. Marker TaM2, a restriction fragment length polymorphism marker was converted to a PCR assay and mapped to 3.9 cM on the other side of Tardus. Marker TaM3, a cleaved amplified polymorphic sequence marker, was positioned along-side marker TaM1 at 3.9 cM from Tardus. One or more markers was polymorphic in 70% of possible pairwise crosses between Australian domesticated lines and wild accessions tested, indicating wide applicability of the markers in crosses between wild and domesticated germplasm.
