Identification of Prunus armeniaca cultivars by RAPD and SCAR markers


, : Identification of Prunus armeniaca cultivars by RAPD and SCAR markers. Biotechnology letters 24(10): 749-755

Nineteen cultivars of apricot (Prunus armeniaca) were distinguished using random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers. One decamer out of 44 used was useful to differentiate cultivars of the Campania Region from those of Northern Italy, North America and Greece. A sequence characterized amplified region (SCAR) marker was obtained. The results provide a protocol to fingerprint DNA of apricots as an efficient way to quality control and fraud prevention.

Background: Allergen challenge of subjects with asthma produces an early asthmatic response, late asthmatic response, and increases bronchial responsiveness. Histamine partly mediates the early asthmatic response, and may play a role in late-phase...
