Generating sequence-tagged sites (STSs) is a prerequisite to convert a genetic map to a physical map. With the help of sequence information from these STSs one can also isolate specific genes. For these purposes, we have designed PCR primer sets, of 20 bases each, by reference to sequences of restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) landmarkers(More)
The conditions for efficient single-strand conformation polymorphism (SSCP) detection were examined for its application to mapping of DNA regions in the rice genome. Temperature for electrophoresis and glycerol concentrations in gel affected SSCP patterns significantly. The optimal detection conditions for SSCP also depends on the nucleotide sequences of(More)
Bulked segregant analysis was used to determine randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers in a specific interval in the middle of chromosome 6 of rice for tagging the photoperiod sensitivity gene. Two pools of F2 individuals (japonica cv. Nipponbare and indica cv. Kasalath) were constructed according to the genotypes of three restriction fragment(More)
We searched partial sequences of over 22,706 rice cDNA and 1220 genomic DNA clones to find and characterize simple sequence repeats (SSRs) in the rice genome. The most frequently found repeated SSR motif in both cDNA and genomic DNA sequences was d(CCG/CGG)n. The second most frequently found SSR was d(AG/CT)n. In contrast with mammalian genomes, in which(More)
To understand the functions of rice homologues of the Arabidopsis flowering-time gene CONSTANS (CO) and salt-tolerance gene STO, we performed a similarity search of the single-run sequence data of cDNA clones accumulated by the Rice Genome Research Program, and isolated seven rice cDNA clones (S3574, C60910, S12569, R2931, R1479, R1577, and E10707) coding(More)
We produced 102 randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers mapped on all 12 chromosomes of rice using DNAs of cultivars Nipponbare (japonica) and Kasalath (indica) and of F2 population generated by a single cross of these parents. Sixty random primers 10 nucleotides long were used both singly and in random pairs and about 1,400 primer-pairs were(More)
The whole mitochondrial genome sequence of red fox (Vuples vuples) was determined. It had a total length of 16 723 bp. As in most mammal mitochondrial genome, it contained 13 protein coding genes, two ribosome RNA genes, 22 transfer RNA genes and one control region. The base composition was 31.3% A, 26.1% C, 14.8% G and 27.8% T, respectively. The codon(More)
