Methylation changes in the F3allopolypoids

Table II.
  • F2-a  The boxes represent the four bases (CCGG) of the recognition site of isoschizomer enzymes HpaII and MspI. Black boxes indicate methylated cytosines, white boxes indicate unmethylated cytosines, and gray boxes represent cytosines whose methylation state varies from sequence copy to sequence copy (partial methylation). Slashed boxes represent cytosines whose state cannot be determined using this method.

  • F2-b  Schematic representation of the MSAP gel band pattern diagnostic of the associated CCGG methylation pattern. The thinner bands represent lower concentration products. See Figure 2 for examples.

  • F2-c  Fragment not present in one of the parents.
