Molecular evolution and phylogenetic application of DMC1.


The protein encoded by the single-copy nuclear gene DMC1 belongs to the recA-like group of proteins involved in meiosis. Partial nucleotide sequence, spanning exon 10 to exon 15, was used to test the applicability of the gene to phylogenetic studies in higher plants and used to assess its molecular evolution. The sequences produced from the Triticeae… (More)
