Three vegetative crops of sect. Cepa in genus Allium (Top onion, French grey shallot and viviparous triploid onion) of suspected hybridogenic origin were studied with genomic in situ hybridization (GISH) and random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers. Related wild and cultivated species were included in the analysis in order to assess their contributions to the genomes of the investigated species. In A. × proliferum, the parental chromosomes derived from A. fistulosum and A. cepa were… 

Figures and Tables from this paper

Phylogenetic relationships of wild and cultivated species of Allium section Cepa inferred by nuclear rDNA ITS sequence analysis
TLDR
It is argued that a subdivision of section CepA in subsections Cepa and Phyllodolon, although possible from data, as well as the formal description of alliances do not seem reasonable in a small group of species.
Triparental origin of triploid onion, Allium × cornutum (Clementi ex Visiani, 1842), as evidenced by molecular, phylogenetic and cytogenetic analyses
TLDR
The combined molecular, phylogenetic and cytogenetic data obtained in this study provided evidence for a unique triparental origin of triploid onion A. × cornutum with three putative parental species, A. cepa, A .
The triparental triploid onion Allium × cornutum Clementi ex Visiani, 1842, possesses a sterile S-type of cytoplasm
TLDR
Fluorescent in situ hybridization enabled simultaneous visualization of the three genomes during meiosis and confirmed their homeologus intergenomic pairing and showed that ‘Ljutika’ possesses the male-sterile S-type of cytoplasm.
Shallots in Croatia – genetics, morphology and nomenclature
TLDR
This paper reviews the results of studies of the morpho- -anatomical characteristics and genetic structure of three genetically and morphologically different, vegetatively reproduced relatives of the common onion, Allium cepa L., which are mainly traditionally cultivated for consumption and as a spice.
Paternity determination of interspecific rhododendron hybrids by genomic in situ hybridization (GISH).
TLDR
The results demonstrate that GISH is a practical tool for detection of alien genomes and analysis of the constitution of the chromosomes in rhododendron hybrids.
Molecular characterization of onion (Allium cepa) using RAPD markers.
TLDR
In this study, it was found that Bermis and India-2 were more dissimilar and on the other hand, Faridpuri and Bhati were the most similar in their genetic level.
Cultivar Identification and Genetic Diversity in Onion (Allium cepa L.) as Evaluated by Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) Analysis
TLDR
Twenty-two onion (Allium cepa L.) cultivars were examined by using randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers, and similarity values indicate that genetic diversity is low among onion cultivars.
FLUOROCHROME BANDING IN THE TRIPLOID VIVIPAROUS ONION ALLIUM × CORNUTUM CLEMENTI EX VISIANI, 1842
TLDR
Staining with fluorochromes CMA3 (Chromomycin A3) and DAPI (4,6-diamidino-2-phenylindole) confirmed previous results from Giemsa C-banding and revealed GC-rich heterochromatic regions associated mainly with chromosome ends and nucleolus organizing regions (NORs), and only a few interstitial bands.
Morphological and Biochemical Diversity of Shallot Landraces Preserved Along the Croatian Coast
TLDR
The aim of this study was to differentiate shallot accessions collected from local farmers using morphological markers and to propose specific morphological traits and biochemical markers for possible species identification.

Assessment of genetic relationships among sexual and asexual forms of Allium cepa using morphological traits and RAPD markers
TLDR
The results indicate that the seed-propagated shallot is more closely related to onions than to vegetatively propagated shallots and, moreover, reveal a geographical structure of genetic diversity.
Hybrid origin of some ornamentals of Allium subgenus Melanocrommyum verified with GISH and RAPD
Abstract Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) and genomic in situ hybridization (GISH) methods have been used to verify the hybridogenic origin and to identify the parental species of some
Infraspecific differentiation of garlic (Allium sativum L.) by isozyme and RAPD markers
TLDR
An infraspecific classification of garlic with four major groups is proposed, using isozyme and RAPD markers to analyze and structure a collection of 300 accessions, many of which were gathered in Middle Asia close to the assumed center of origin.

TLDR
The cultivation of the triploid viviparous onion is reported from Tibet, Kashmir, Jammu, Croatia, Germany, The Netherlands, France, Guadeloupe, and Canada, and it was assumed that the parents of triploids might be also A. cepa and A. fistulosum, but only one species of sect.
Further Studies on Natural Triploidy in Viviparous Onion
Triploid A. cepa var. viviparum has been earlier described as a genomic allotriploid with the genomic formula AAB. Studies conducted on the mode of chromosome pairing and used in conjecture with the
Closely relatedAllium species (Alliaceae) share a very similar satellite sequence
TLDR
This satellite sequence had evolved already in progenitor forms of sect.Cepa and remained unusually well conserved during speciation and might indicate selection pressure exerted on a secondarily acquired telomere function of the satellite sequence.
Interspecific crosses of onion with distant Allium species and characterization of the presumed hybrids by means of flow cytometry, karyotype analysis and genomic in situ hybridization
TLDR
Interspecific crosses were made by hand-pollination of Allium cepa with pollen of 19 species belonging to nine sections of two subgenera of the genus Allium, and hybrid character of the regenerants was checked by morphological comparisons with the parents and by one or more cytological methods.
Allotetraploid origin ofAllium altyncolicum (Alliaceae, Allium sect.Schoenoprasum) as investigated by karyological and molecular markers
The tetraploidAllium altyncolicum (2n = 4x = 32) is considered to be of hybrid origin, because most of its morphological characters are intermediate between those of its putative parents,A.
Cytogenetical evidences for hybrid structure and origin of diploid and triploid shallots (Allium cepa var.viviparum, Liliaceae) from Dalmatia (Croatia)
TLDR
Results obtained in this work indicate that Dalmatian viviparous onions arose from spontaneous hybridization of Allium cepa withA.
Characterization of genetic identities and relationships of Brassica oleracea L. via a random amplified polymorphic DNA assay
TLDR
It is demonstrated that RAPD markers can be of great value in gene bank management for purposes of identification, measurement of variation, and establishment of genetic similarity at the intraspecific level.
