Abstract

A cDNA library from developing wheat endosperm was screened for sucrose-synthase clones using a maize cDNA probe corresponding to the Sh1 locus under non-stringent conditions. Five positive clones were isolated and initially classified into two types on the basis of their relative ability to hybridize with the probe and of their partial restriction maps. Determination of the nucleotide sequences indicated homology between the two types of wheat clones, with type 1 showing higher homology to the maize Sh1 locus than to type-2 sequences. The inserts cloned in plasmids pST8 (type 1) and pST3 (type 2) were used as probes to determine the chromosomal locations of the two types of genes. DNAs from compensated nulli-tetrasomic and ditelosomic lines of wheat cultivar Chinese Spring were cleaved with EcoRI and analysed in Southern blots. DNA segments of the two types were thus identified in the short arms of chromosomes 7A, 7D, and, possibly, 7B. The two types of linked loci have been designated Ss1 and Ss2, respectively
