Wheat HMW glutenin subunit genes 1Ax1 and 1Dx5 were introduced, and either expressed or overexpressed, into a commercial wheat cultivar that already expresses five subunits. Six independent transgenic events were obtained and characterized by SDS-PAGE and Southern analysis. The 1Dx5 gene was overexpressed in two events without changes in the other endosperm(More)
The objective of this work was to determine the type of inheritance (disomic/polysomic) in tetraploid (2n=4x=40) Paspalum notatum and investigate the transmission pattern of the chromosome region associated with apospory. An F1 family segregating for the reproductive mode (aposporous vs non-aposporous) was generated by crossing a tetraploid sexual plant as(More)
Paspalum notatum Flügge is a warm-season forage grass with mainly diploid (2n = 20) and autotetraploid (2n = 40) representatives. Diploid races reproduce sexually and require crosspollination due to a self-incompatible mating system, while autotetraploids reproduce by aposporous apomixis. The objectives of this work were to develop a genetic linkage map of(More)
Tetraploid Paspalum notatum (bahiagrass) is a valuable forage grass with aposporous apomictic reproduction. In a previous study, we showed that apospory in bahiagrass is under the control of a single dominant gene with a distorted segregation ratio. The objective of this work was to identify molecular markers linked to apospory in tetraploid P. notatum and(More)
In previous studies we reported the identification of several AFLP, RAPD and RFLP molecular markers linked to apospory in Paspalum notatum. The objective of this work was to sequence these markers, obtain their flanking regions by chromosome walking and perform an in silico mapping analysis in rice and maize. The methylation status of two apospory-related(More)
Apomixis is a route of asexual reproduction through seeds, that progresses in the absence of meiosis and fertilization to generate maternal clonal progenies. Gametophytic apomicts are usually polyploid and probably arose from sexual ancestors through a limited number of mutations in the female reproductive pathway. A differential display analysis was(More)
Soybean cultivars carrying the `long juvenile trait' show a delayed flowering response under short day conditions. The incorporation of this character into genotypes of agronomic interest may allow a broader range of sowing dates and latitudes for a single cultivar adaptation. The objective of this work was to identify molecular markers linked to the(More)
We analyzed anaphase I configurations and pollen viability in aposporous and sexual tetraploid (2n = 4x = 40) cytotypes of Paspalum notatum. Five natural aposporous accessions and three experimentally obtained sexual individuals were used. In addition, 16 (8 aposporous and 8 sexual) F1 hybrids, previously classified by their mode of reproduction, were(More)
Tetraploid (2n = 4x = 40) races of Paspalum notatum Flüggé are important natural forage grasses for the tropical and subtropical areas of the Americas. Almost all natural accessions reproduce by obligate aposporous apomixis. Previous work on the species allowed the identification of several molecular markers completely linked to apospory, one component of(More)
Paspalum notatum Flügge is a subtropical grass native to South America, which includes sexual diploid and apomictic polyploid biotypes. In the past decade, a number of apomixis-associated genes were discovered in this species through genetic mapping and differential expression surveys. However, the scarce information on Paspalum sequences available in(More)
