In this study, in addition to the karyotype analysis, the chromosomal distributions of 5 S and 18 S rDNAs, and the Arabidopsis-type (T3AG3) telomeric sequences were detected by means of fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) to promote the information of chromosomal organization and evolution in the cultivated lettuce and its wild relatives, L. sativa,(More)
Heterohybridomas, created to secrete monoclonal antibodies, are generally unstable over long-term culture because of chromosome elimination during culture. To evaluate the karyotype of heterohybridomas, we used simultaneous genomic in situ hybridization (GISH), which can distinguish unambiguously between parental genomes in allopolyploid species. Using(More)
The karyotype of diploid Aster iinumae is morphologically similar to that of diploid Aster ageratoides var. ageratoides, however, its chromosome size is apparently smaller (S-type chromosomes versus L-type chromosomes, respectively). The hybrid origin of tetraploid Aster microcephalus var. ovatus (LS-type chromosomes) has previously been suggested by(More)
Polemonium kiushianum is a critically endangered species of which only eight populations exist in semi-natural grasslands of the Mt. Aso area of Kyushu, Japan. Habitat modification and the risk of hybridization with non-indigenous horticultural congeners, such as P. caeruleum subsp. caeruleum and P. caeruleum subsp. yezoense var. yezoense, pose increasing(More)
Somatic chromosome numbers and karyological features in 22 taxa of the genus Canna (Cannaceae) were investigated and are presented here for the first time. The chromosome numbers were primarily reported for C. bangii, C. indica var. sanctae-rosae and C. tulianensis. A triploid somatic chromosome number of 2n = 27 was found only in C. discolor, while the(More)
The Origin of Southeastern Asian Triploid Edible Canna ( Canna discolor Lindl.) Revealed by Molecular Cytogenetical Study. Canna discolor Lindl. (Cannaceae), commonly known as edible canna, is often cultivated in Southeastern Asia for its starchy rhizomes. Based on morphological and karyological features, it is thought to be an allotriploid plant originated(More)
