Genetic relationships among perennial and annual Cicer species growing in Turkey as revealed by allozymes

Sudupak, MA
Kence, Aykut
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 UPGMA revealed two species clusters; one includes three perennials ( C. montbretii, C. isauricum and C. anatolicum) and the other contains six annuals ( C. pinnatifidum, C. bijugum, C. judaicum, C. echinospermum, C. reticulatum and C. arietinum) and one perennial species ( C. incisum). Grouping obtained in allozyme analysis appears to be consistent with the classification these species into three sections. However, contrary to relationships obtained in previous studies, three perennial species from section Polycicer were relatively distant to the group containing annuals. One perennial species, C. incisum from section Chamaecicer, clustered with annuals showing a close similarity. The grouping of six annual species was consistent with the previous reports of relationships. The relationships deduced between perennials and annuals appear to shed light on the evolution of annual habit from perennial habit.


Genetic relationships among perennial and annual Cicer species growing in Turkey assessed by AFLP fingerprinting
Sudupak, MA; Akkaya, Mahinur; Kence, A (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2004-03-01)
AFLP markers were used to assess genetic relationships among Cicer species with distribution in Turkey. Genetic distances were computed among 47 Cicer accessions representing four perennial and six annual species including chickpea, using 306 positions on AFLP gels. AFLP-based grouping of species revealed two clusters, one of which includes three perennial species, Cicer montbretii, Cicer isauricum and Cicer anatolicum, while the other cluster consists of two subclusters, one including one perennial, Cicer ...
Genetic and morphologic diversity of Pseudophoxinus (Cyprinidae): implication for conservation in Anatolia
TELLİ, MURAT; Aykut, Kence (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2015-01-01)
Pseudophoxinus a freshwater fish genus shows remarkable diversification with high number of endemic species in Anatolia. Most of the species of the genus are categorized as endangered for conservation in IUCN Red List due to water abstraction and habitat destruction. The aim of the study is to investigate genetic and morphological structure of Pseudophoxinus populations using allozyme, microsatellite markers and geometric morphometrics (eight landmarks). Sample collection was performed from eight localities...
DNA fingerprinting and genetic characterization of Anatolian Triticum spp. using AFLP markers
Yildirim, Figen; Akkaya, Mahinur (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2006-08-01)
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. baeoti...
Comparative molecular phylogenetics of Astragalus L. sections from Turkey with New World Astragalus species using nrDNA ITS sequences
Dizkirici, Ayten; EKİCİ, MURAT; Kaya, Zeki (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2014-01-01)
Comparative molecular phylogenetic study using nrDNA internal transcribed spacer region (ITS) sequences was carried out on species from three Astragalus L. (Fabaceae) sections from Turkey (Old World species) and the New World. A total of 56 taxa (179 accessions) including 30 species from Incani DC., 15 species from Hypoglottidei DC. and 11 species from Dissitiflori DC. section were used in the current study. The total length of the ITS region was 642 bp with 56 (8.7 %) parsimony-informative and 9 insertion\...
Morphology, anatomy, palynology and nutlet micromorphology of the rediscovered Turkish endemic Salvia ballsiana (Lamiaceae) and their taxonomic implications
Kahraman, Ahmet; Doğan, Musa; Celep, Ferhat; AKAYDIN, GALİP; KOYUNCU, MEHMET (Wiley, 2010-01-01)
Salvia ballsiana (Rech. fil.) Hedge, previously known only from the type gathering, is a local endemic species from Turkey. The species was first collected from Golbasi (Malatya) by E. K. Balls in 1935, and was not collected again until 2008, when we found it in Gerger (Adiyaman). The diagnostic morphological characters of this rare endemic species are discussed, including its anatomical, palynological and nutlet micromorphological features. Morphological characteristics of leaves, calyces, corollas and typ...
