We identified a 178 bp mobile DNA element in lettuce with characteristic CGAGC/GCTCG repeats in the subterminal regions. This element has terminal inverted repeats and 8-bp target site duplications typical of the hAT superfamily of class II mobile elements, but its small size and potential to form a single-stranded stable hairpin-like secondary structure(More)
The analysis of F2 progeny and derived F3 families of Lactuca sativa segregating for resistance to corky root rot caused by Rhizomonas suberifaciens permitted the identification of restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) and single nucleotide polymorphism (SNP) markers linked to the recessive resistance gene cor. PCR-based markers were identified by(More)
Bacterial contamination represents a serious problem for plant tissue culture research and applications. Bacterial interference with normal plant physiology and morphology can generate misleading conclusions if the presence of bacteria is ignored. Bacterial contaminants in in vitro plant culture are typically detected by direct observation; thus, it is(More)
