    • Doubled Haploid Technology inMaize breeding: Status and prospects George Mahuku, Aida Kebede, Vanessa Prigge, Leocadio Martinez
    • Outline• Introduction to Doubled Haploid (DH) technology• Advantages of DH lines in maize breeding• Steps in DH line development• CIMMYT’s experience in DH line generation• Challenges• On-going activities
    • Doubled Haploid (DH) lines – What are they?• Haploid: an individuals with the gametic chromosome number (n) in its somatic cells.• A Doubled Haploid: is a genotype formed when haploid cells (n), i.e. egg or sperm cell undergo chromosome doubling (2n).• The resulting individual is completely homozygous.
    • Conventional vs DH Inbred Line Development• Produced by repeated generations of selfing• In each generation, heterozygosity reduces by 50%• Resulting inbred lines s are highly homozygous but not 100%• DH technique – a quicker method to obtain 100% pure inbred lines Generation S1 S2 S3 S4 S5 S6 S7 Homozygosity (%) 50 75 87.5 93.75 96.875 98.45 99.23 Months 6 12 18 24 30 36 42
    • Advantages of DH technique in hybrid maize breeding • Acceleration of inbred line development • Evaluation of putative hybrids at the beginning of the selection process • Maximum additive variance available • Reduction of masking effects which are caused by residual heterozygosity • Reduction of costs for nursery & maintenance breeding work • Simplyfied logisticsSchmidt 2004; Röber et al. 2005
    • Doubled haploids – a valuable tool for research• Establishment of DH mapping populations – Improve the precision of genetic and mapping studies – Analysis of linkage disequilibrium – Analysis of haplotype/trait associations• Accelerate gene pyramiding• Evaluation, exploitation, and conservation of genetic resources – Extraction of individual gametes from heterozygous materials transforming them into DH lines – Detrimental effects are revealed to the full extent from the very beginning – Conservation of germplasm in form of reproducible DH lines
    • Methods for Producing haploids• In vitro - Tissue Culture Techniques – Anther Culture (microspore culture) – Highly complex & expensive – Low plantlet regeneration rate which is dependent on genetic background – Greatly limited for application in breeding programs• In vivo - Genetic induction – Widely used – Involves use of inducer lines – High frequency of haploid generation – Simple to operate – Relatively inexpensive
    • Two types of haploids Cytoplasm Chromosome Importance Effective for converting highPaternal Inducer Donor combining seed parenthaploids lines to isogenic CMS analogues Rapid development ofMaternal Donor Donor completelyhaploids homozygous inbred lines
    • Production of Maternal haploids using in vivo method 11) Induction of haploidy 22) Identification of haploids DH-Donor/ Source germplasm (Female) Inducer (Pollinator)3) Artificial chromosome 3 Haploid seedlings doubling Two doubled haploid4) Self-pollination for seed (DH) plants multiplication 4Doubled haploid video in youtubehttp://blog.cimmyt.org/?p=5880.

    • Haploid Induction Table 1. Inducers and their haploid induction rate (HIR)  Materials: Inducer HIR (%) Reference Stock 6 2.3 Coe 1959  Haploid inducer WS14 2.0 - 5.0 Lashermes & Beckert 1988  Heterozygous source KEMS RWS 6.3 8 - 23 Shatskaya et al. 1994 Röber et al. 2005 germplasm PK6 ~6 Barret et al. 2008 Prigge et al., in UH400 >8 preparation Collect inducer pollen Pollinate source germplasmR1-njcolor marker
    • Induction in yellowHarvesting induced ears and white donors
    • Haploid Kernel Identification Triploid endosperm (purple aleurone) DH-Donor Inducer (purple embryo (colorless) & aleurone) X Diploid embryo (purple scutellum)R1-nj color marker systemfor identification ofhaploids (Coe and Sarkar, Haploid seed Regular (diploid) F1 - colorless embryo seed purple embryo1964; Sarkar and Coe, - purple aleurone - purple aleurone1966)
    • Haploid Kernel selection in CIMMYT Regular F1 Haploid CAT 1 (CAT 2) (CAT 3)
    • Step 3: Artificial genome doubling • 0.06% colchicine, 0.5% DMSO solution; 8 hours Gayen et al. (1994) MNL 68:85 • Colchicine acts as mitotic inhibitor Germination of haploid seeds Cutting of coleoptile on 3 consecutive days Colchicine treatment over nightTransplanting to the field Planting into pots, recovery and establishing of treated plants
    • How does colchicine work?• Colchicine is an alhkloid produced by Colchicum autumnale• It works as mitotic inhibitor: by binding to tubulin during mitosis it inhibits spindle formation so that the cell cannot split into two daughter cells Haploid Doubled haploid (diploid)
    • Chromosome doubling agents• Colchicine is commonly used as doubling agent α and β Tubulin• Nitric Oxide (Kato and Geiger, 2002)• Microtubule binding herbicides • Caused chromosomal doubling of root tip cells (Hantzschel and Weber, 2010)
    • Step 4: Self-pollinationElimination of “false“plants• vigor & tillering• stalk color• endosperm & embryo color
    • DH lines express uniformity within the line and diversity among the lines!Cycle DH Conventional1 Generate F1 Generate F12 Cross F1 x inducer Generate F23 Treat & self (D0) Generate F2:34 Self & generate Generate F3:4 D15 Generate F4:56 Generate F5:6
    • DH line generation at CIMMYT- progress
    • CIMMYT GMP started its involvement in DH in 2007• University of Hohenheim provided temperate inducer genotypes and technical support• Various aspects under investigation: – Development of tropical adapted inducer lines – Induction rate of temperate inducers in tropical environments – Novel marker system for haploid kernel identification – Optimization of agronomic management to increase success rate of DH line development
    • Tropically adapted inducer line development New tropical Inducer lines Induction rate ≥10% Temperate inducer
    • Topically adapted Inducer lines TAIL Temperate Line Inducer
    • Progress in Haploid kernel induction Hand Pollination Isolation Block Hand Pollination Inducer Donor Inducer
    • Harvest from Isolation block Harvest of 2011 inductions•Moving into production phase•Increase the number ofinductions to 150 sourcepopulations
    • Optimizing Agronomic Management
    • Lack of flowering or synchronization• Lack of synchronization• Good female flowers (stigmas)• Little or no pollen• Use of shading
    • Insect pest problem -Ear worms • Cipermetrina • Heliothis spp.
