Flow cytometric DNA analysis was used to study changes in nuclear DNA content induced by the addition of complete or telosomic rye chromosomes into the genome of common wheat (Triticum aestivum L.). The DNA content of each addition line was determined by comparison with an internal reference value and was expressed as a difference with respect to the(More)
Sixty Aegilops tauschii accessions and 60 European hexaploid wheat varieties were analyzed with 14 wheat microsatellite (WMS) primer sets to (i) study the phylogeny of Ae. tauschii, (ii) search for a specific genotype of Ae. tauschii most closely related to the D genome of hexaploid wheat, and (iii) narrow down the presumed birthplace of the latter. An(More)
The first SSR-based genetic linkage map of Cucurbita moschata was created by integrating the maps of two F2 populations with one common parent developed from the crosses Waltham Butternut (WB) x Nigerian Local (NL) and ZHOU (a hull-less type) x WB. The integrated C. moschata map comprises 205 SSR markers and two morphological traits (Gr and n). The map is(More)
Genes (Pde-A3; Pde-B3; Pde-D3) for phosphodiesterase (PDE; E.C. 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)
Tetraploid triticale, (A/B)(A/B)RR (2n = 28), is a botanical novelty, an amphiploid composed of a diploid rye and a 14 chromosome wheat genome made up of chromosomes of the A and B genomes of tetraploid wheat. Restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) markers were used to elucidate the chromosome composition of the mixed wheat genome of 35 different(More)
