The nucleotide sequence of the ITS1-5.8S ribosomal DNA spacer fragment was determined for 41 samples of the Malus species. The total length of compared sequences ranged from 389 to 392 bp. The nucleotide sequence of the 5.8S gene within the genus was highly conserved. The level of polymorphism of ITS1 region comprised 14%. Both species- and group-specific(More)
The first molecular genetic analysis of the apple species and varieties from Russian collections with the AFLP marker system was performed in order to study the genetic diversity of the genus Malus, as well as to clarify the phylogeny and solve some systematic issues of the genus. Nienty-one apple accessions, including species from five sections of the(More)
The sequences that encode the main functional glucosyltransferase domain of sucrose synthase genes have been identified for the first time in 14 Malus species and related Rosaceae species, and their polymorphism was investigated. Single nucleotide polymorphisms leading to amino acid substitutions in the protein sequence, including the conservative(More)
Sequence variability of the ITS spacers and 5.8S rRNA gene was examined in 11 accessions of the subfamily Scilloideae, including seven accessions of rare and endangered species Bellevalia sarmatica from Volgograd region. The intraspecific polymorphism level of the examined ITS1–5.8S–ITS2 sequence of B. sarmatica accessions constituted 1.3%. The phylogenetic(More)
Sequence-Specific Amplified Polymorphism (S-SAP)-analysis of 131 accessions of different species from five sections of the genus Malus was carried out to study genetic diversity, and to clarify phylogenetic and taxonomic issues. S-SAP-markers, based on long terminal repeat (LTR)-retrotransposons TRIM2 and dem1, were developed, which identified 679(More)
NBS-profiling was used to study NBS-LRR resistance genes polymorphism in 32 Russian and foreign apple (M. domestica) varieties and nine Antonovka landraces. NBS-LRR resistance genes variability in the studied apple varieties was rather low. While in Antonovka landraces specific NBS-patterns were revealed, which may indicate the presence of a number of(More)
The sorbitol-6-phosphate dehydrogenase gene (S6PDH) sequences of six Malus accessions, from five different taxonomic sections, were studied for the first time. The exon-intron structure and polymorphism of the nucleotide and amino acid sequences of these genes were characterized. The intraspecific polymorphism of the S6PDH gene was assessed for the first(More)
One hundred and fifty Russian and foreign winter common wheat varieties were examined by the PAGE method. A total of 70 alleles were identified at six gliadin-coding loci. It was demonstrated that 42% of varieties were heterogeneous, i.e., were represented by a number of genotypes, while 52% of varieties were homogeneous. A unique combination of gliadin(More)
The allelic diversity at four gliadin-coding loci was studied in modern cultivars of the spring and winter durum wheat Triticum durum Desf. Comparative analysis of the allelic diversity showed that the gene pools of these two types of durum wheat, having different life styles, were considerably different. For the modern spring durum wheat cultivars, a(More)
DNA samples obtained from the populations of the Red Data Book species Bellevalia sarmatica (Georgi) Worovow from Volgograd oblast were examined using RAPD and AFLP analyses. DNA marking revealed considerable differences in the levels of interpopulation and intraspecific polymorphisms the Bellevalia. Furthermore, RAPD analysis, despite of lower levels of(More)
