Multiple allelism in heterozygous autopolyploid species like potato not only occurs for genes that affect morphological characteristics but also for genes involved in metabolic pathways. Based on a combination of Southern and PCR analyses, at least eight alleles encoding granule-bound starch synthase I (GBSSI), which is responsible for amylose biosynthesis, have been identified in potato. These alleles were grouped into four classes, distinguishable by Southern analysis, and subdivided based on… CONTINUE READING
