Genotypic control of chromosome pairing in amphiploids involving the cultivated oat Avena sativa L.


A genotype of the diploid species Avena longiglumis (Cw 57) has been shown to modify the genetic control of diploid-like chromosome pairing in the cultivated oat, A. sativa (2n=6x=42) leading to increased homoeologous chromosome pairing in 4x hybrids between the two species (Rajhathy & Thomas, 1974). The Cw 57 genotype has a similar effect in increasing… (More)
