In the original version of this article, PCR fragments and digestion product sizes for the VRN-B2 and VRN-D2 markers were not accurate. The corrected sizes are detailed below:
Primers SNF-B2-3p-F1 and SNFB2-3p-R2 for the SNF-B2 gene tightly linked to VRN-B2 amplified a 1281 bp product. Digestion of the amplified product with restriction enzyme HpyCH4IV yielded two fragments (1041 and 240 bp) for the allele linked to the vrnB2-null deletion and three fragments (633, 408 and 240 bp) for the wild type allele from the hexaploid winter wheat variety Goodstreak.
Primers for the VRN-D2 gene amplified a 687-bp fragment from the functional allele in the hexaploid wheat Goodstreak and a 681-bp fragment from the non-functional allele from Ae. tauschii accession E1. Digestion of the amplified PCR products with the restriction enzyme MboII yielded three fragments (396, 196 and 95 bp) in hexaploid wheat and two fragments (586 and 95 bp) in Ae. tauschii E1.
