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...

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...
SSR markers in the genetic relationship studies of Turkish durum wheat varieties
Akkaya, Mahinur; Dograr, N; Incirli, A; Hakki, EE; Buyukunal, EB; Bilgic, H (2000-06-09)
DNA markers are the essential tools for differentiating genotypic characters of varieties and cultivars. Microsatellite or Simple Sequence Repeat (SSR) markers are PCR-based molecular markers. SSRs are the type of markers that can be used most efficiently for DNA fingerprinting due to their reproducible and high level of polymorphic features. The variations in the number of nucleotide repeats, SSR length polymorphism, were detected by separating (alpha P-32)-dATP labeled PCR products obtained with locus spe...
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...
Revision of Vicia L. (Leguminosae) in the Central Anatolia, Turkey
Binzat, Okan Kaan; Doğan, Musa; Department of Biology (2012)
In this revisional study based on the the genus Vicia in Central Anatolia large quantities of data have been compilled from specimens representing the group of the taxa being studied. These data were then synthesized to make taxon descriptions, keys, geographical distributions and ecological preferences. Since 2009, about 700 specimens have been collected from Central Anatolia and examined as the research materials. In addition, a large number of specimens have also been studied in the following herbaria AN...
