  • Wheat evolution is complex as a result of successive rounds of allopolyploidization and continuous selection during domestication. Diploid and tetraploid wheat species (Triticum spp.) were used as model systems in which to study the role of centromere-specific histone H3 variant (CENH3) in wheat evolution. We characterized two types of CENH3 genes, named αCENH3 and βCENH3, each of which has three slightly different copies derived from the AA, BB and DD genomes. Specific antibodies were raised… CONTINUE READING
