The FLOWERING LOCUS C (FLC) gene controls the transition of arabidopsis plants to flowering following cold induction (vernalization). Time to flowering in annual and biennial species of Brassicaceae supposedly depends on the number of FLC copies. We analyzed DNA restriction fragment length polymorphism in six Brassica species with diploid (AA, BB, and CC) and allotetraploid (AABB, AACC, and BBCC) genomes using for a hybridization probe an FLC homolog previously cloned in our laboratory from B. juncea. The characteristic variations in the patterns of restriction fragments corresponded to the genomic composition of Brassica species and, in some cases, correlated with the timing of floral transition.
