We analyzed the events that affect gene structure and expression in the early stages of allopolyploidy in wheat. The transcriptome response was studied by analyzing 3072 transcripts in the first generation of a synthetic allotetraploid (genome S(l)S(l)A(m)A(m)), which resembles tetraploid wheat (genome BBAA), and in its two diploid progenitors Aegilops sharonensis (S(l)S(l)) and Triticum monococcum ssp. aegilopoides (A(m)A(m)). The expression of 60 out of 3072 transcripts was reproducibly…

Organ-Specific Silencing of Duplicated Genes in a Newly Synthesized Cotton Allotetraploid
TLDR
A detailed portrayal of gene silencing events that can occur following allopolyploidization is provided and epigenetic causal factors are suggested.
Changes of gene expression in early generations of the synthetic allotetraploid Cucumis × hytivus Chen et Kirkbride
TLDR
Four types of changes of gene expression were observed, including silencing of genes from both parents, maternal parent, paternal parent, and genes novel expression, which contributed to the evolution of this synthetic allotetraploid.
Allopolyploidy alters gene expression in the highly stable hexaploid wheat
TLDR
Global compared gene expression of a synthetic hexaploid wheat with its diploid and tetraploid parents by cDNA-AFLP display, suggesting that many of the gene expression changes were intrinsically associated with polyploidy.
Variability of Gene Expression After Polyhaploidization in Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
TLDR
CDNA–single strand conformation polymorphism analysis was applied to measure the expression of 30 homeologous transcripts in naturally occurring haploid and its polyploid maternal parent Yumai 21A in wheat, demonstrating that activation and silencing of homoeoalleles were not widespread in haploid seedlings.
Genetic and epigenetic reprogramming of the wheat genome upon allopolyploidization
TLDR
Transcriptional and post-transcriptional alterations of gene activity, including transcriptional activation of retro-elements, led to novel expression patterns that emphasize the plasticity of the genome with regard to both structure and gene expression, which might improve the adaptability of the newly formed allopolyploids and facilitate their rapid and successful establishment in nature.
Homoeolog-specific transcriptional bias in allopolyploid wheat
TLDR
It is demonstrated that the establishment of interactions between the diverged regulatory networks in allopolyploids is accompanied by massive homoeolog-specific up- and down-regulation of gene expression.
Stochastic and Epigenetic Changes of Gene Expression in Arabidopsis Polyploids
TLDR
Differential expression patterns of the progenitors' genes among successive selfing generations and independent lineages are analyzed, suggesting that a rapid and stochastic process of differential gene expression is reinforced by epigenetic regulation during polyploid formation and evolution.
Homoeologous gene silencing in hexaploid wheat.
TLDR
It is suggested that a substantial proportion of transcriptional silencing within single-copy genes within groups 1, 2, 3 and 7 of wheat is effected by an epigenetic mechanism, and that this form of genetic variation may be a significant player in the determination of phenotypic diversity in breeding populations.
Rapid alterations of gene expression and cytosine methylation in newly synthesized Brassica napus allopolyploids
TLDR
The results provided evidence for genome-wide changes in gene expression and DNA methylation occurring immediately after hybridization and polyploidization in synthetic B. napus and contributed to the elucidation of genome doubling effects on responses of transcriptome and epigenetics in B. Napus.

Phenotypic Instability and Rapid Gene Silencing in Newly Formed Arabidopsis Allotetraploids
TLDR
Evidence that gene silencing accompanies allopolyploidization opens new avenues to this area of research.
A change of ploidy can modify epigenetic silencing.
TLDR
An increased number of chromosomes can result in a new type of epigenetic gene inactivation, creating differences in gene expression patterns, and the possible impact for genetic diploidization in the light of widespread, naturally occurring polyploidy and polysomaty in plants.
Allopolyploidy-Induced Rapid Genome Evolution in the Wheat (Aegilops–Triticum) Group
TLDR
Analysis of the rate and time of elimination of eight DNA sequences in F1 hybrids and newly formed allopolyploids of Aegilops and Triticum suggests a role in augmenting the differentiation of homoeologous chromosomes at the polyploid level, thereby providing the physical basis for the diploid-like meiotic behavior of newly formed new species.

Protein-coding genes are epigenetically regulated in Arabidopsis polyploids.
TLDR
Ten genes that are silenced from either A. thaliana or C. arenosa origin in Arabidopsis suecica are identified, suggesting epigenetic regulation is involved in the expression of orthologous genes in polyploid genomes.
Sequence Elimination and Cytosine Methylation Are Rapid and Reproducible Responses of the Genome to Wide Hybridization and Allopolyploidy in Wheat
TLDR
It is found that sequence elimination is one of the major and immediate responses of the wheat genome to wide hybridization or allopolyploidy, that it affects a large fraction of the genome, and that it is reproducible.
Gene dosage and stochastic effects determine the severity and direction of uniparental ribosomal RNA gene silencing (nucleolar dominance) in Arabidopsis allopolyploids.
TLDR
Data suggest that nucleolar dominance is a chromosomal phenomenon that results in coordinate or cooperative silencing of rRNA genes.

TLDR
Analysis of large genomic fragments isolated from nonorthologous Lrk loci showed a high conservation of the gene content and gene organization at these loci on the homoeologous group 1 chromosomes of wheat and barley, and sequence comparison of two paralogous fragments of chromosome 1B showed a large number of local events, which reveal rearrangements and mechanisms for genome enlargement at the microlevel.
Rapid genomic changes in newly synthesized amphiploids of Triticum and Aegilops. II. Changes in low-copy coding DNA sequences
TLDR
Evidence was obtained that changes were also brought about by DNA methylation in newly synthesized amphiploid plants, leading to genetic diploidization and gene-dosage compensation and thus increasing variation among individuals.
Genome evolution in polyploids
TLDR
Processes and mechanisms of gene and genome evolution in polyploids are reviewed, including the role of transposable elements in structural and regulatory gene evolution; processes and significance of epigenetic silencing; underlying controls of chromosome pairing and mechanisms and functional significance of rapid genome changes are reviewed.
