The gametocidal chromosome as a tool for chromosome manipulation in wheat

  title={The gametocidal chromosome as a tool for chromosome manipulation in wheat},
  author={Takashi Endo},
  journal={Chromosome Research},
Many alien chromosomes have been introduced into common wheat (the genus Triticum) from related wild species (the genus Aegilops). Some alien chromosomes have unique genes that secure their existence in the host by causing chromosome breakage in the gametes lacking them. Such chromosomes or genes, called gametocidal (Gc) chromosomes or Gc genes, are derived from different genomes (C, S, Sl and Mg) and belong to three different homoeologous groups 2, 3 and 4. The Gc genes of the C and Mg genomes… CONTINUE READING
