Based on anecdotal evidence, a positive criterion of 10 tetrasomic cells was recommended, and this approach was first adopted for scoring bladder washings.
Tetrasomic genetic analyses differ from those of diploids in two
The present study was conducted to map Randomly Amplified Polymorphic DNA primers (RAPDs) on homoeologous group 1 chromosomes (especially chromosome 1B of common wheat) of wheat genotypes "Chinese Spring" (CS) (which is euploid in nature, having genomes AABBDD, 2n=6x=42) and Nullisomic Tetrasomic 1B-1A (NT 1B1A).
2], following tetrasomic segregation of the alleles governing the trait.
Allelic frequencies for isoloci were calculated as mean frequencies over both loci and treated as a single tetrasomic locus.
However, after one generation of selfing, full homozygosity at a diploid heterozygous locus increases by 50%, while in tetraploids with tetrasomic inheritance, full homozygosity (aaaa, AAAA) increases more slowly (17-21%, depending on the pattern of segregation) (Haldane 1930; Wright 1938; Parsons 1959).
salicaria shows tetrasomic inheritance of tristyly at both loci (Fisher and Martin 1947; Fisher 1949; Fyfe 1953), we simulated a diploid genetic system for the sake of generality.
