We previously demonstrated that allopolyploidization could induce phenotypic variations and genome changes in a newly synthesized allotetraploid in Cucumis. To explore the molecular involvement of epigenetic phenomena, we investigated cytosine methylation in Cucumis by using methylation-sensitive amplified polymorphism (MSAP). Results revealed a twofold difference in the level of cytosine methylation between the reciprocal F1 hybrids and the allotetraploid. Analysis of the methylation pattern… CONTINUE READING
