Origin and evolution of the waxy phenotype in Amaranthus hypochondriacus: evidence from the genetic diversity in the Waxy locus

Abstract

The existence of polymorphism in the Waxy locus in a large gene pool of 53 strains with various waxy phenotypes from samples of Amaranthus hypochondriacus collected from different regions was investigated in an origin-and-evolution study. First, we screened all strains for a mutation point (G–A polymorphism in exon 6) by using PCR–RFLP and/or direct… (More)
