Inter and intra-species inter simple sequence repeat (ISSR) variations in the genus Cicer

Sudupak, MA
Intra and inter-species ISSR variation and use of ISSR markers in determination of genetic relationship were investigated in an accession collection representing two perennial and six annual Cicer species. Screening of Cicer accessions with SSR primers revealed highly reproducible amplicon profiles with relatively high multiplex ratios. Many of the primers generated amplicon profiles with which not only the differences among species can readily be identified, but also polymorphisms within species could be detected more efficiently. PCR products at 150 gel positions detected using six SSR primers in Cicer accessions were treated as dominant DNA markers and utilized to compute the distances among accessions and species. Cluster analysis of accessions and species revealed groupings that corroborate our previous studies of relationships based on allozyme and AFLP analysis. Consistent with the AFLP analysis carried out in the same accession collection, ISSR-based groupings indicated that perennial C. incisum is genetically close to the annuals of the second crossability group (C. pinnatifidum, C. bijugum, C. judaicum) while C. reticulatum is the closest wild species to the cultivated chickpea. ISSR-based variation estimates were relatively higher when compared to previous estimates computed from RAPD and AFLP data. Technically, ISSR analysis combines the PCR-based targeting of microsatellite-associated polymorphisms with no prior sequence requirement and stringent PCR conditions. Similarly, when compared to AFLP analysis, it is less technically demanding allowing to survey polymorphic loci in the genome. Thus, ISSR-PCR technology is a reliable, fast, and cost-effective marker system that can be used to study genetic variation and genetic relationships in the genus Cicer.


Analysis of genetic relationships among perennial and annual Cicer species growing in Turkey using RAPD markers
Sudupak, MA; Akkaya, Mahinur; Kence, A (2002-12-01)
Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) fragments were used to assess genetic relationships among Cicer spp. growing in Turkey. Seven 10-mer primers selected from a 50 random oligonucleotide primer set, depending on their ability to amplify genomic DNA in all species, were used to detect RAPD variation in 43 wild and cultivated accessions representing ten species. These primers yielded 95 reproducible amplification products, 92 of which were polymorphic. Pairwise,genetic distances of accessions estimated ac...
Molecular phylogenetic analyses of Juniperus L. species in Turkey and their relations with other junipers based on cpDNA
Güvendiren, Aysun Demet; Kaya, Zeki; Department of Biology (2015)
Evolutionary relationships within and among two sections and three subsections of Juniperus species (Section Juniperus, subsections Juniperus, Oxycedrus and Caryocedrus, Section Sabina) naturally distributed in Turkey were investigated with molecular variations of chloroplast DNA (cpDNA). This study revealed the phylogenetic relation of 66 individuals from 7 native Turkish Juniperus L. species based upon DNA sequence of trnL intron (trnL5’-L3’) , trnL3’- F(GAA) (trnL-F intergenic spacer), trnV intron and ma...

The phylogenetic relationships of Drosanthe section of Hypericum genus (Hypericaceae) were analyzed by using non-coding chloroplast DNA region (trnL 3'-trnF) for 58 individuals. The section is represented by 23 taxa and nine of which are endemic to Turkey. The chloroplast phylogeny suggested that the members of this section belonged to a polyphyletic group, which imply at least two independent origins. The individuals of this section clearly formed two main clades. One clade included all members of this sec...
Genetic variation pattern among Abies cilicica (Pinaceae) populations: Adaptive seed and seedling traits
Gülsoy, Ali Murat; Doğan, Musa; Department of Biology (2022-9-12)
The pattern of genetic variation in adaptive seed and seedling traits of Abies cilicica was investigated using 160 families from 8 populations representing the species' natural range for two years in the Olcay Forest Nursery in Konya. The study indicated that both populations and families within populations varied significantly in seed and seedling traits. The pattern of genetic variation among populations suggests that there may be a clinal variation concerning altitude and latitude regarding these traits....
Genetic structure of modern and ancient swordfish populations from coasts of Turkey
Yüncü, Eren; Togan, İnci Zehra; Department of Biology (2017)
In this study, partial mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) and 8 microsatellite loci of swordfish collected from Northern Levantine Sea and Northern Aegean Sea were analyzed. Also same mtDNA region of ancient swordfish samples unearthed from Yenikapı excavation were sequenced. Obtained sequences were evaluated comparatively with the sequences from Balearic Sea, Ligurian Sea, Ionian Sea and Southern Aegean Sea, available in databases. Analysis of the molecular variance revealed a significant differentiation between We...
