Abstract

Isolation, physical mapping and polymorphism of chromosome-specific DNA sequences in wheat are reported. Following the microdissection of the long arm of chromosome 5B (5BL) of common wheat, its DNA was amplified by degenerate oligonucleotide-primed PCR and directly cloned into plasmid vectors. Characterization of the chromosome arm library showed that ~55% of the inserts are of low-copy nature. Southern analysis using aneuploid lines of common wheat revealed that five of 11 low-copy inserts analyzed map to chromosome arm 5BL; four of these are 5BL-specific. By deletion mapping, the 5BL-specific sequences were located to sub- chromosome arm regions. Based on the hybridization patterns of three 5BL-specific sequences to DNA from a diverse collection of goat-grass (Aegilops) and wheat (Triticum) species, it was concluded that these sequences emerged at different times in the course of evolution of this group of plant species.
