Table 4 MSAP fragment number analysis

From: Epigenetic rather than genetic factors may explain phenotypic divergence between coastal populations of diploid and tetraploid Limonium spp. (Plumbaginaceae) in Portugal

Ploidy level Species E1/H1 E1/H3 Total
HpaII MspI HpaII MspI HpaII MspI
Diploid L. lanceolatum 52 52 47 38 99 90
L. nydeggeri 50 48 43 33 93 81
L. ovalifolium 48 43 42 28 90 71
Tetraploid L. dodartii 37 77 24 56 61 133
L multiflorum 33 59 30 35 63 94
L. vulgare 26 46 20 39 46 85
  1. Average number of MSAP fragments per diploid (L. lanceolatum, L. nydeggeri, L. ovalifolium) and tetraploid (L. dodartii, L. multiflorum and L. vulgare) species obtained using isoschizomers enzymes HpaII (methylation sensitive) and MspI (methylation insensitive) and primer combinations E1/H1 and E1/H3.
