- The rj1 mutation of soybean is a simple recessive allele in a single line that arose as a spontaneous mutation in a population; it exhibits non-nodulation with virtually all Bradyrhizobium and Sinorhizobium strains. Here, we described fine genetic and physical mapping of the rj1 locus on soybean chromosome 2. The initial mapping of the rj1 locus using public markers indicated that A343.p2, a sequence-based marker that contains sequence similar to a part of the LjNFR1 gene regulating nodule formation as a member of lysin motif-type receptor-like kinase (LYK) family, maps very close to or cosegregates with the rj1 locus. The sequence of A343. p2 is 100% identical to parts of two BAC clone sequences (GM_WBb0002O19 and GM_WBb098N11) that contain three members of the LYK family. We analyzed the sequence contig (262 kbp)of the two BAC clones by resequencing and subsequent fine genetic and physical mapping. The results indicated that rj1 is located in a gene-rich region with a recombination rate of 120 kbp/cM: several fold higher than the genome average. Among the LYK genes, NFR1α is most likely the gene encoded at the Rj1 locus. The non-nodulating rj1 allele was created by a single base-pair deletion that results in a premature stop codon. Taken together, the fine genetic and physical mapping of the Rj1-residing chromosomal region, combined with the unexpected observation of a putative recombination hotspot, allowed us to demonstrate that the Rj1 locus most likely encodes the NFR1α gene.
