Geographical and environmental range expansion through polyploidy in wild potatoes (Solanum section Petota)
Aim To assess evidence for geographical and environmental range expansion through polyploidy in wild potatoes ( Solanum sect. Petota ). There are diploids, triploids, tetraploids, pentaploids andExpand

The proportions of glycoalkaloid aglycones are dependent on the genome constitutions of interspecific hybrids between two Solanum species (S. brevidens and S. tuberosum)
Abstract Wild Solanum species, related to the cultivated potato (Solanum tuberosum L. ssp. tuberosum), generally contain high amounts of various glycoalkaloids, which are undesirable characters whenExpand

Cytogenetic analysis of Lycopersicon esculentum (+) Solanum etuberosum somatic hybrids and their androgenetic regenerants
Abstract  The aim of the study was to characterize genomic relationships among cultivated tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) (2n=2x=24) and diploid (2n=2x=24) non-tuberous wild Solanum speciesExpand

Allopolyploid speciation of the Mexican tetraploid potato species Solanum stoloniferum and S. hjertingii revealed by genomic in situ hybridization.
Thirty-six percent of the wild potato (Solanum L. section Petota Dumort.) species are polyploid, and about half of the polyploids are tetraploid species (2n = 4x = 48). Determination of the type ofExpand

Characterization of resistance to Synchytrium endobioticum in cultivated potato accessions from the collection of Vavilov Institute of Plant Industry
With 7 figures and 1 table Abstract The causal agent of potato wart (Synchytrium endobioticum) is an obligate parasitic chytrid fungus. It is included as a quarantine pathogen in 55Expand

Identification of mitotic chromosomes of tuberous and non-tuberous solanum species (Solanum tuberosum and Solanum brevidens) by GISH in their interspecific hybrids.
GISH (genomic in situ hybridization) was applied for the analysis of mitotic chromosome constitutions of somatic hybrids and their derivatives between dihaploid clones of cultivated potato (SolanumExpand

Metabolic Alterations in Male-Sterile Potato as Compared to Male-Fertile
The common potato, Solanum tuberosum L., is the fourth most important agricultural crop worldwide. Until recently, vegetative propagation by tubers has been the main method of potato cultivation. AExpand

Genomic in situ hybridization reveals both auto- and allopolyploid origins of different North and Central American hexaploid potato (Solanum sect. Petota) species.
Wild potato ( Solanum L. sect. Petota Dumort.) species contain diploids (2n = 2x = 24) to hexaploids (2n = 6x = 72). J.G. Hawkes classified all hexaploid Mexican species in series Demissa BukasovExpand
