Identification of Aloe species by random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis

, : Identification of Aloe species by random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis. Shokuhin Eiseigaku Zasshi. Journal of the Food Hygienic Society of Japan 44(4): 203-207

According to the Pharmaceutical Affairs Law in Japan, the use of the juice and integument of Aloe vera A. ferox and A. africana leaves as food is not allowed. On the other hand, whole leaves of A. arborescens can be used as food. In this study, Aloe species were distinguished by random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) analysis. DNA was isolated from fresh and dried leaves of the 4 Aloe species. Five out of the 32 different 10-mer primers examined were useful for the analysis.
