DNA variation was studied in a 2.2 kb region of the regulatory gene Atmyb2 using 20 ecotypes of Arabidopsis thaliana and one accession each of Arabis gemmifera and Arabidopsis himalaica. Nucleotide diversity (pi) in the region was 0.0027, which was lower than for other loci in A. thaliana. The MYB domain of the Atmyb2 gene (pi = 0.0036) had a larger variation than the non-MYB region (pi = 0.0013). Tajima's test and Fu and Li's test did not give a significant result. In contrast to the low level… CONTINUE READING
