The sitiens (sit) wilty mutant of tomato (Solanum lycopersicum L.) is deficient in functional enzyme activity at the final step in abscisic acid (ABA) biosynthesis. The biochemical lesion is believed to be an impaired aldehyde oxidase (AO). Molecular mapping using various interspecies crosses has previously shown sit to co-map with a cluster of unresolved RFLP markers on the short arm of chromosome 1. Here, the utilisation of bridging lines to produce interspecies mapping populations involving a self-compatible S. peruvianum accession (LA2157) allowed the fine mapping of sit within this cluster. Identification of a novel AO gene, within the region now known to contain the sit locus, was confirmed by analysis of the tomato whole genome shotgun sequence assembly. This novel AO protein shares 76-78% identity at the amino acid level with the previously characterised tomato AO proteins. The DNA sequence of this putative sit gene was characterised in wild type and in two allelic sit mutants (sit and sit (w)): changes in DNA sequence were identified in these mutant alleles that cause a truncation of exon 2 and the deletion of exon 7, respectively. These results establish the identity of the tomato sit gene and are consistent with its proposed function of encoding the ABA aldehyde oxidase apoenzyme.
