Genetic variability and differentiation of Caragana microphylla populations as revealed by RAPD markers

Genetic variability and differentiation of Caragana microphylla populations as revealed by RAPD... Genetic variability in random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) was studied in 90 individuals of Caragana microphylla, an outcrossing perennial shrub species, from five natural populations sampled in Inner Mongolia steppe of China on a small scale.

Abstract

Genetic variability in random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) was studied in 90 individuals of Caragana microphylla, an outcrossing perennial shrub species, from five natural populations sampled in Inner Mongolia steppe of China on a small scale. Nineteen selected primers were used to amplify DNA samples, and totally 225 bands were detected. The percentage of polymorphic bands within populations ranged form 58.22% to 63.56%, with an average of 60% at the population level and 71.11% at the species level, indicating relatively high genetic variations in C. microphylla species. Shannon’s information index (l) and Nei’s gene diversity (h) showed the similar trend with each other. According to the analysis of Nei’s gene diversity, the percentage of genetic variation among populations was 7.13%, indicating a low level of genetic differentiation among populations. There existed a strong gene flow (N m = 3.26) among populations. Although AMOVA analysis also revealed most variation was within populations (ΦST = 4.1%), a significant proportion was observed among populations (P < 0.001) in the present study, suggesting genetic differentiation occurred among populations at a certain extent. Based on Mantel’s tests and the results of previous studies, the genetic structure pattern of C. microphylla accorded with the isolation-by-distance model on a very large scale, however, on a small scale, the significant genetic differentiation among populations might be enhanced by the micro-environmental divergence among the sampling sites, rather than by geographic factors. Analysis of the genetic variations of C. microphylla populations provided useful information for the adaptive strategy of Caragana species.
