Molecular analysis of mitochondrial DNA from rye (Secale cereale L.)

Molecular characterization of mitochondrial (mt) DNA of rye (Secale cereale L.), free of significant amounts of contaminating chloroplast (cp) DNA, was initiated using the open-pollinated cultivar ‘Halo’ as a source of mtDNA. Based on the compilation of data from restriction patterns, the molecular size of the mtDNA was estimated to be 410 Kb and its… CONTINUE READING
