a Information for the Vrn-1 promoter regions is from Yan et al. (2004). Vrn-A1a and Vrn-A1b indicate promoter insertions or deletions, respectively (no intron deletion); Vrn-A1c, intron 1 deletion in the A genome copy; Vrn-B1, intron 1 deletion in the B genome copy; Vrn-D1, intron 1 deletion in the D genome copy. vrn-A1, vrn-B1 and vrn-D1 indicate no indels in the intron or promoter region compared to the winter allele
