Karyotype reshufflings of Festuca pratensis × Lolium perenne hybrids

Many different processes have an impact on the shape of plant karyotype. Recently, cytogenetic examination of Lolium species has revealed the occurrence of spontaneous fragile sites (FSs) associated with 35S rDNA regions. The FSs are defined as the chromosomal regions that are sensitive to forming gaps or breaks on chromosomes. The shape of karyotype can also be determined by...

Genome-dependent chromosome dynamics in three successive generations of the allotetraploid Festuca pratensis × Lolium perenne hybrid

We focus on the identification of complete and recombined ribosomal DNA-bearing chromosomes, and the dynamics of chromosomal number and position of ribosomal DNA (rDNA) loci in the F2-F4 generations derived from the F1 hybrid of Festuca pratensis Huds. (2n = 4x = 28) × Lolium perenne L. (2n = 4x = 28). Lolium genomic DNA and rRNA genes were mapped by means of genomic and...

Identification of leaf proteins differentially accumulated during cold acclimation between Festuca pratensis plants with distinct levels of frost tolerance

Festuca pratensis (meadow fescue) as the most frost-tolerant species within the Lolium–Festuca complex was used as a model for research aimed at identifying the cellular components involved in the cold acclimation (CA) of forage grasses. The work presented here also comprises the first comprehensive proteomic research on CA in a group of monocotyledonous species which are able to...
