Mining and characterizing microsatellites from citrus ESTs
TLDR
These EST-derived SSRs can be a resource used for understanding of the citrus SSR distribution and frequency, and development of citrus EST-SSR genetic and physical maps.
Sequencing of diverse mandarin, pummelo and orange genomes reveals complex history of admixture during citrus domestication
TLDR
This work sequence and compare citrus genomes—a high-quality reference haploid clementine genome and mandarin, pummelo, sweet-orange and sour-orange genomes—and shows that cultivated types derive from two progenitor species.
Genomics of the origin and evolution of Citrus
TLDR
Ten natural citrus species are described, using genomic, phylogenetic and biogeographic analyses of 60 accessions representing diverse citrus germ plasms, and it is proposed that citrus diversified during the late Miocene epoch through a rapid southeast Asian radiation that correlates with a marked weakening of the monsoons.
Complex history of admixture during citrus domestication revealed by genome analysis
TLDR
The genomes of a collection of mandarins, pummelos, and oranges are reported, including a high quality reference sequence from a haploid Clementine mandarin, and it is shown that these cultivated types can be derived from two progenitor species.
Factors affecting Agrobacterium-mediated transformation and regeneration of sweet orange and citrange
Epicotyl explants of sweet orange and citrange were infected with Agrobacterium strain EHA101 harboring binary vector pGA482GG, and factors affecting the plant regeneration and transformation
A localized linkage map of the citrus tristeza virus resistance gene region
TLDR
A localized genetic linkage map was developed of the region surrounding the citrus tristeza virus (CTV) resistance gene (designated Ctv) from Poncirus trifoliate L., a sexually compatible Citrus relative, to enable citrus breeders to identify plants likely to be CTV-resistant by indirect, marker-assisted selection, rather than by labor-intensive direct challenge with the pathogen.
A reference genetic map of C. clementina hort. ex Tan.; citrus evolution inferences from comparative mapping
TLDR
A reference genetic map of citrus, used to facilitate the chromosome assembly of the first citrus reference genome sequence, was established and confirmed that Clementine arose from hybridization between ‘Mediterranean’ mandarin and sweet orange.
Induction of triploid Citrus plants from endosperm calli in vitro
TLDR
The results demonstrate that triploid hybrid plant recovery from Citrus endosperm can overcome barriers to sexual hybridization resulting from apomixis.
Changes in carbohydrate metabolism in Citrus sinensis infected with ‘Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus’
TLDR
Changes in carbohydrate metabolism in sweet orange (Citrus sinensis) infected with ‘ Candidatus Liberibacter asiaticus’, a purported cause of citrus Huanglongbing (HLB), were investigated and it is suggested that the impairment of starch breakdown may contribute to the starch accumulation in infected leaves.
