The effect of DNA fragment size on the extent of hybridisation that occurs between repeated sequence DNAs from oats, barley, wheat and rye has been investigated. The extent of hybridisation is very dependent on fragment size, at least over the range of 200 to 1000 nucleotides. This is because only a fraction of each fragment forms duplex DNA during(More)
The repeated sequences in oats DNA have been used to study chromosomal repeated sequence organisation in wheat. Approximately 75% of the wheat genome consists of repeated sequences but only approximately 20% will form heteroduplexes with repeated sequences from oats DNA at 60 degrees C in 0.18 M Na+. The proportion of wheat DNA that forms heteroduplexes(More)
Genes (Pde-A3; Pde-B3; Pde-D3) for phosphodiesterase (PDE; E.C. 3.1.4.1.) isoenzymes in hexaploid wheat were located on the three homoeologous chromosomes of group 3 by testing the electrophoretic banding pattern of monosomic, nullisomic and nullisomic/tetrasomic compensation lines of "Chinese Spring" variety. In plants nullisomic for chromosome 5B, the 3D(More)
It has been shown in an earlier paper that chicks that were housed and trained in pairs demonstrated a greater resistance to extinction of the neonatal approach response than did chicks that were housed and trained in isolation. The purpose of the present study was to attempt to replicate these results and to determine whether housing or training is the(More)
The DNAs of wheat and rye plants with rye B chromosomes have been compared with wheat, rye and oats DNAs by DNA/DNA hybridisation. The presence of DNA from B chromosomes made no significant difference to the proportion of repeated sequence DNA. The repeated sequence fractions of these cereal DNAs were quantitatively divided into eight different groups on(More)
Although most laboratory studies of imprinting rear and test subjects individually, in the natural setting birds are imprinted in groups. In order to approximate and evaluate naturally occuring conditions, the present study compared the approach responses of chicks reared and trained alone to those reared and trained in pairs to an audio-visual imprinting(More)
