DNA fingerprinting and genetic characterization of Anatolian Triticum spp. using AFLP markers

Yildirim, Figen
Akkaya, Mahinur
In this study, genetic analysis of Triticum spp. was carried out using AFLP markers. Six AFLP selective combinations were scored as presence and absence of bands for all the individual samples obtained from a single seed of each accession (70 accessions); T. baeoticum (21), T. monococcum (5), T. urartu (16), T. araraticum (7), T. dicoccoides (16) and T. dicoccon (5), resulting in 506 polymorphic AFLP bands. The phylogenetic tree showed two major clusters; one was composed of T. monococcum (AA) and T. baeoticum (AA), and the other cluster included T. araraticum (AAGG), T. dicoccon (AABB), T. dicoccoides (AABB), and T. urartu (AA). T. urartu, although having a diploid AA genome, did not cluster with other A genome diploids such as T. monococcum and T. baeoticum; instead it clustered together with the tetraploid species, confirming that T. urartu is the A genome progenitor. The extent of variations within and among species is discussed.


Genetic relationships among perennial and annual Cicer species growing in Turkey as revealed by allozymes
Sudupak, MA; Kence, Aykut (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-05-01)
Allozyme polymorphisms were used to assess genetic variation and relationships among ten Cicer species ( annuals and perennials) growing in Turkey. Using seven enzyme systems, 12 putative scorable loci were detected and surveyed for polymorphism in an accession collection including wild and cultivated forms. Variation was generally low within accessions and species, but common between species. Cluster analysis based on the pairwise genetic distance coefficients (Nei 1978) among accessions and species using ...
Taxonomic study on the genus Eremopyrum (Ledeb.) Jaub. et Spach (Poaceae) in Turkey
Cabi, Evren; Doğan, Musa (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2010-07-01)
In this study, we examined whether a satisfactory infrageneric grouping in Eremopyrum (Ledeb.) Jaub. & Spach can be achieved with the help of cluster analysis based on external vegetative and floral morphological characters of specimens either gathered from the field or borrowed from various herbaria. Twenty morphological characters were chosen and scored for 36 populations representing the genus. The data were subjected to numerical taxonomic analyses, and a phenogram was obtained by applying Gower general...
A numerical taxonomic study of the genus Acantholimon Boiss Plumbaginaceae in Ankara Province Turkey
MUVAFFAK, Aslı; Doğan, Musa; Bilgin, Cemal Can (Laser Pages Publishing Ltd., 2001-01-01)
This study examines whether a satisfactory classification of Acantholimon Boiss. (Plumbaginaceae) species found in Ankara province (Turkey) can be obtained from phenctic clustering based on external vegetative and floral morphological characters of both herbarium and collected specimens, The study is on the following species: A. venustum Boiss., A, halophilium Bokhari., A. acerosum (Willd.) Boiss., A. kotschyi (Jaub. & Spach) Boiss., A. confertiflorum Bokhari., A. glumaceum (Jaub. & Spach) Boiss., A. casare...
Pollen morphology of some taxa of Vicia L. subgenus Vicia (Fabaceae) from Turkey
KAHRAMAN, AHMET; Binzat, Okan Kaan; Doğan, Musa (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2013-11-01)
In this study, the pollen morphology of 11 taxa belonging to Atossa (Alef.) Asch. & Graebner, Hypechusa (Alef.) Asch. & Graebner, Peregrinae Kupicha, Wiggersia (Alef.) Maxted, Vicia L. and Narbonensis (Radzhi) Maxted sections of the genus Vicia L. subgenus Vicia (Fabeae, Fabaceae) naturally growing in Turkey has been studied using Light Microscopy (LM) and Scanning Electron Microscopy (SEM) to evaluate the taxonomic relevance of pollen characters. Twelve morphometric characters are analysed with one-way ana...
Evolution of Neuronal and Endothelial Transcriptomes in Primates
Giger, Thomas; Khaitovich, Philipp; Somel, Mehmet; Lorenc, Anna; Lizano, Esther; Harris, Laura W.; Ryan, Margaret M.; Lan, Martin; Wayland, Matthew T.; Bahn, Sabine; Paeaebo, Svante (Oxford University Press (OUP), 2010-01-01)
The study of gene expression evolution in vertebrates has hitherto focused on the analysis of transcriptomes in tissues of different species. However, because a tissue is made up of different cell types, and cell types differ with respect to their transcriptomes, the analysis of tissues offers a composite picture of transcriptome evolution. The isolation of individual cells from tissue sections opens up the opportunity to study gene expression evolution at the cell type level. We have stained neurons and en...
