Partial amino acid sequences of two proteins, purified from barley leaves reacting hypersensitively to the powdery mildew fungus, showed a high degree of amino acid identity to the PR-1 proteins originally described in tobacco. The proteins, subsequently designated HvPR-1a and HvPR-1b, show apparent pI values of approximately 10.5 and 11, respectively and(More)
Naturally occurring populations of wild Brassica oleracea were collected in Spain, France, and Great Britain. Allele frequencies at four isozyme loci were determined for 18 populations, while five populations were screened using five random primers to generate RAPDs. Levels of homozygosity and gene diversity, H, were computed for each population using(More)
The extent and patterns of distribution of genetic variation among 80 sorghum (Sorghum bicolor (L.) Moench) germplasm accessions from Ethiopia and Eritrea were investigated using RAPD with 20 oligonucleotide primers. The primers generated a total of 147 polymorphic bands across the 80 accessions with a mean of 7.35 bands per primer. Estimation of the extent(More)
Genetic variation of forest coffee trees (Coffea arabica L.) from four regions of Ethiopia was investigated using inter-simple sequence repeat (ISSR) markers. A total of 160 individuals representing 16 populations were sampled. Eleven ISSR primers amplified a total of 123 fragments of which 31 fragments (25%) were polymorphic. Estimate of total gene(More)
A set of six cloned barley (Hordeum vulgare) repetitive DNA sequences was used for the analysis of phylogenetic relationships among 31 species (46 taxa) of the genus Hordeum, using molecular hybridization techniques. in situ hybridization experiments showed dispersed organization of the sequences over all chromosomes of H. vulgare and the wild barley(More)
We have developed RFLP and RAPD markers specific for the genomes involved in the evolution of Elymus species, i.e., the St, Y, H, P, and W genomes. Two P genome specific repetitive DNA sequences, pAgc1 (350 bp) and pAgc30 (458 bp), and three W genome specific sequences, pAuv3 (221 bp), pAuv7 (200 bp), and pAuv13 (207 bp), were isolated from the genomes of(More)
Genetic diversity within the forest Coffea arabica L. gene pool in Ethiopia has not been extensively examined with molecular markers. In the present study, a total of 75 polymorphic RAPD bands generated by twelve random primers were used to assess genetic diversity among 144 genotypes representing 16 C. arabica populations. The number of polymorphic bands(More)
The recombinant plasmid dpTa1 has an insert of relic wheat DNA that represents a family of tandemly organized DNA sequences with a monomeric length of approximately 340 bp. This insert was used to investigate the structural organization of this element in the genomes of 58 species within the tribe Triticeae and in 7 species representing other tribes of the(More)
A double-gene construct with one chitinase and one β-1,3-glucanase gene from barley, both driven by enhanced 35S promoters, was transformed into oilseed rape. From six primary transformants expressing both transgenes 10 doubled haploid lines were produced and studied for five generations. The number of inserted copies for both the genes was determined by(More)
The extent and distribution of genetic variation in wild sorghum (Sorghum bicolor ssp. verticilliflorum (L.) Moench) collected from five different geographical regions in Ethiopia were analyzed using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers for 93 individuals representing 11 populations. Nine decamer primers generated a total of 83 polymorphic bands(More)
