This paper is the first to report the long-range organization of all possible classes of trinucleotide motifs in a higher plant genome. Fluorescent in situ hybridization (FISH), employing the synthetic oligonucleotides (AAC)5, (AAG)5, (AAT)5, (AGG)5, (CAC)5, (CAT)5, (CAG)5, (ACT)5, (ACG)5 and (GCC)5, was used to characterize the nonrandom and(More)
The use of consensus chloroplast microsatellites primers for dicotyledonous chloroplast genomes revealed the existence of intra and interspecific length variation within the genus Vitis. Three chloroplast microsatellite loci were found to be polymorphic in samples of Vitis vinifera, Vitis berlandieri, Vitis riparia, and Vitis rupestris out of a total of 10(More)
The presence and distribution of two simple sequence repeats (SSRs), three highly repetitive sequences from rye, and the 5S rDNA have been investigated in 3 rye cultivars and 10 wild-related species of the genus SECALE: The following conclusions can be drawn in addition to detailed knowledge of the sequence content of chromatin in each accession studied:(More)
Simple Sequence Repeats (SSRs) are known to be scattered and present in high number in eukaryotic genomes. We demonstrate that dye-labeled oligodeoxyribonucleotides with repeated mono-, di-, tri, or tetranucleotide motifs (15-20 nucleotides in length) have an unexpected ability to recognize SSR target sequences in non-denatured chromosomes. The results show(More)
 Fluorescence in situ hybridization (FISH) with multiple probes has been applied to meiotic chromosome spreads derived from ph1b common wheat x rye hybrid plants. The probes used included pSc74 and pSc 119.2 from rye (the latter also hybridizes on wheat, mainly B genome chromosomes), the Ae. squarrosa pAs1 probe, which hybridizes almost exclusively on D(More)
Two simple sequence repeats (SSRs), AG and AC, were mapped directly in the metaphase chromosomes of man and barley (Hordeum vulgare L.), and in the metaphase and polytene chromosomes of Drosophila melanogaster. To this end, synthetic oligonucleotides corresponding to (AG)(12) and (AC)(8) were labelled by the random primer technique and used as probes in(More)
Clusters of four simple sequence repeats (SSRs), AAC, AAG, AG and CAT, have been mapped physically to hexaploid wheat chromosomes; 15—24-bp synthetic oligonucleotides were labelled by random-primer labelling and used as probes for fluorescent in situ hybridization with standard formamide and low-salt conditions. AAC hybridized strongly to the(More)
Quantitative trait loci (QTLs) for androgenetic response were mapped in a doubled haploid (DH) population derived from the F1 hybrid of 2 unrelated varieties of triticale, 'Torote' and 'Presto'. A molecular marker linkage map of this cross was previously constructed using 73 DH lines. This map contains 356 markers (18 random amplified 5 polymorphic DNA, 40(More)
A significant fraction of the nuclear DNA of all eukaryotes is occupied by simple sequence repeats (SSRs) or microsatellites. This type of sequence has sparked great interest as a means of studying genetic variation, linkage mapping, gene tagging and evolution. Although SSRs at different positions in a gene help determine the regulation of expression and(More)
Three families of highly repeated sequences from rye and the rRNA multigenes (NOR and 5S) have been mapped by FISH and C-banding, in chromosomes of triticale. The pSc119.2 probe showed interstitial hybridization in chromosome arms 1RS, 1RL, 4RL, 5RL, 6RS, 6RL, 7RS and 7RL, and is very effective for chromosome identification of rye chromosomes in triticale.(More)
