Eighty-two varieties of rice from different regions in Thailand were selected to explore the Waxy (Wx)gene diversity and indica-japonica differentiation of chloroplast DNA. A comparison of the 5’ splice site in the first intron was made between glutinous and nonglutinous rice. It revealed that non-glutinous with low-amylose content and glutinous rice were characterized as the Wx b allele based on the G-to-T base substitution, whereas non-glutinous rice with intermediate and high amylose carried… CONTINUE READING
