Identification of Citrus Chimeras by RAPD Markers

in HortScience

Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers were used to detect chimerism of citrus cultivars. Polymerase chain reaction conditions suitable for discriminating citrus chimeras were determined. Primers that produced consistent and repeatable bands that differed between the parental cultivars were chosen to create discriminating band patterns. Our results show that selected 12-mer primers can be useful for identifying the four citrus chimeras tested using RAPD technology.
