Abstract The rice lesion mimic mutant spotted leaf 1 ( spl1) was first identified in the rice ( Oryza sativa) cultivar Asahi in 1965. This mutant displayed spontaneous disease-like lesions in the absence of any pathogen, and was found to confer resistance to multiple isolates of rice blast. We employed a map-based cloning strategy to localize the Spl1 gene. A total of ten cleaved amplified polymorphic sequence (CAPS) markers linked to the Spl1 gene were identified and mapped to an 8.5-cM region on chromosome 12. A high-resolution genetic map was developed using these ten CAPS markers and a segregating population consisting of 3202 individuals. A BAC contig containing four BAC clones was constructed, and Spl1 was localized to a 423-kb region. Seven spl1 mutants were obtained from the IR64 deletion mutant collection, and molecular analysis using these mutants delimited the Spl1 gene to a 70-kb interval, covered by two BAC clones. These results provide the basis for cloning this gene, which is involved in cell death and disease resistance in rice.
