Cultivated peanut, Arachis hypogaea is an allotetraploid of recent origin, with an AABB genome. In common with many other polyploids, it seems that a severe genetic bottle-neck was imposed at the species origin, via hybridisation of two wild species and spontaneous chromosome duplication. Therefore, the study of the genome of peanut is hampered both by the crop's low genetic diversity and its polyploidy. In contrast to cultivated peanut, most wild Arachis species are diploid with high genetic diversity. The study of diploid Arachis genomes is therefore attractive, both to simplify the construction of genetic and physical maps, and for the isolation and characterization of wild alleles. The most probable wild ancestors of cultivated peanut are A. duranensis and A. ipaënsis with genome types AA and BB respectively.
We constructed and characterized two large-insert libraries in Bacterial Artificial Chromosome (BAC) vector, one for each of the diploid ancestral species. The libraries (AA and BB) are respectively c. 7.4 and c. 5.3 genome equivalents with low organelle contamination and average insert sizes of 110 and 100 kb. Both libraries were used for the isolation of clones containing genetically mapped legume anchor markers (single copy genes), and resistance gene analogues.
These diploid BAC libraries are important tools for the isolation of wild alleles conferring resistances to biotic stresses, comparisons of orthologous regions of the AA and BB genomes with each other and with other legume species, and will facilitate the construction of a physical map.

Cultivated peanut (Arachis hypogaea L) is the second-most important grain legume crop worldwide after soybean, with a production of 33 million tons in 2003/04 . Peanut is produced throughout the tropics and warmer regions of the subtropics, but is particularly important in Africa, Asia and in the United States . It is an allotetraploid (AABB) of recent origin that arose from hybridization of two wild species and spontaneous chromosome duplication [2, 3]. This polyploidization event gave rise to a severe genetic bottle-neck [2, 3] which has led to lack of variability in some important traits, limited availability of allelic combinations and consequently restrictions in productivity. In addition, the very low level of polymorphism in cultivated peanut has hampered genetic and genomic characterization. In contrast, diploid wild relatives of peanut have high genetic diversity and have been selected during evolution in a range of environments and biotic stresses, constituting a rich source of allele diversity . Wild alleles can be introduced into the gene-pool of cultivated peanut using a "resynthesis" pathway, essentially artificially recreating events similar to those that gave rise to the origin of the crop species . Recent advances in the knowledge of the relationships of wild and cultivated genomes through traditional taxonomy, cytogenetics and molecular studies are enabling new choices of wild species for resynthesis [5–8]. In parallel new genetic and genomic tools (see below) for monitoring the introgression of wild genes into a cultivated background are opening the perspectives for the efficient introgression of wild genes into the peanut crop using molecular breeding.
The very low level of polymorphism in cultivated peanut has hampered genetic mapping and QTL (Quantitative trait loci) studies. Consequently only a few linkage maps have been published. All of them have used wild species to enable the generation of sufficient polymorphic markers. Restriction fragment length polymorphism (RFLP) maps were developed by Halward based on a cross of two AA genome species, A. stenosperma Krapov. & WC Gregory and A. cardenasii Krapov. & WC Gregory, and a tetraploid map based on a cross of TxAG-6 (a synthetic amphiploid) and A. hypogaea was published by Burow et al. . Recently, we developed an SSR-based map for the AA genome of Arachis based on a cross of A. stenosperma and A. duranensis Krapov. & WC Gregory  and a map of the BB genome, based on a cross of A. ipaënsis Krapov., WC Gregory & CE Simpson and A. magna Krapov., WC Gregory & CE Simpson . Currently there are 54,168 ESTs for A. hypogaea in Genbank [12–14], and 6,264 for the wild AA genome A. stenosperma [15, 16].
Bacterial Artificial Chromosome (BAC) libraries are fundamental tools for genomic studies, being important for physical mapping, map-based gene cloning and analysis of gene structure and function. The easy handling and propagation of the clones, their relatively stability and low degree of chimerism compared with yeast artificial chromosome (YAC) vectors have made BAC vectors the cloning system of choice [17, 18]. A number of strategies have been proposed for physical mapping with large-insert clones: hybridisation-based methods such as interactive hybridisation using individual cDNA or genomic clones as probes , restriction-based fingerprinting methods  integrated BAC end sequencing and fingerprint analysis  or more recently, the use of oligonucleotide-based "overgos" .
Within the Leguminosae, BAC libraries are available for Phaseolus vulgaris , Vigna radiata , Glycine max , Trifolium pretense  and the model legumes Lotus japonicus  and Medicago truncatula . Within the genus Arachis, one BAC library for the allopolyploid cultivated peanut has been developed . As a complement to this resource, here we describe the production of BAC libraries for the two diploid wild species A. duranensis (AA genome) and A. ipaënsis (BB genome) that have been identified as the most probable ancestors of cultivated peanut [8, 30]. Using whole genome in-situ hybridization (GISH) we also further investigated the affinities and coverage of the selected diploid genomes compared to those present in A. hypogaea.
High Molecular Weight (HMW) DNA isolation
The use of standard HMW DNA isolation protocols [31, 32] did not produce sufficient amounts of good quality nuclei for Arachis. High levels of carbohydrate and polyphenols are present in both A. duranensis and A. ipaënsis leaves. This results in high viscosity leaf extracts, which are difficult to filtrate, increasing considerably the time of the nuclei exposure to the action of oxidizing substances. To overcome this problem, some modifications were necessary: inclusion of PVP-40 in the extraction buffer, filtration of leaf extracts in four layers of cheesecloth followed by two layers of Miracloth, centrifugation at low speed (60 × g for 2 min) and a Percoll gradient (37.5%). The analysis of the extracts by DAPI-staining microscopy enabled the correct evaluation of the amount and quality of the nuclei preparations.

BAC libraries characterisation
The organelle contamination in both BAC libraries was evaluated by screening the high-density filters with mitochondrial and chloroplast specific probes. For A. duranensis, the contamination of BAC clones with chloroplast sequences was of 0.016% and mitochondrial sequences of 0.21%. For A. ipaënsis 0.363% was contaminated with chloroplast sequences and 0.081% of the clones with mitochondrial DNA. These values, together with the microscopic DAPI-staining observations, reflect the high level of purification of the Arachis nuclei obtained with the modified protocol.

The hybridization of both BAC libraries with an Arachis resistance gene analogue RGA S1_A_36 identified two clones in the AA genome but none in the BB genome (Table 2).
Cultivated peanut is an allotetraploid with two nuclear genomic components, AA and BB. Although it is generally agreed that these component genomes are derived from diploid wild ancestors, the exact species involved has been a matter of some research and discussion. Although the evidence is not completely clear cut, analysis of data from molecular markers, cytogenetics, morphology and geographical distributions support that A. duranensis and A. ipaënsis are the direct ancestors of cultivated peanut [8, 30].
Genomic in situ hybridization (GISH) of A. hypogaea metaphase chromosomes with total genomic DNA from the AA genome of A. duranensis and the BB genome of A. ipaënsis allowed a clear differentiation of the A and B chromosomes. Firstly, this observation reinforces the evidence of the close relationship between the genomes of A. duranensis, A. ipaënsis and cultivated peanut. Secondly, since GISH relies largely on the hybridization of repetitive sequences, it also indicates that A. duranensis and A. ipaënsis genomes have diverged substantially regarding their repeated sequences/transposable elements contents.
In contrast, the evidence available indicates that the gene order in the AA and BB genomes is substantially conserved . This situation of largely syntenic gene frameworks embedded within quickly evolving repetitive DNA seems to be a recurrent theme in plant evolution [36–39].
The availability of BAC libraries from the allopolyploid and the two wild ancestors will allow the comparison of these genomes regarding microsynteny and repetitive DNA contents, in particular transposable elements and will provide insights into the fascinating area of polyploid genome evolution.
In addition, the legume single copy anchor markers, used to characterize the libraries, will allow orthologous regions to be identified and compared between the AA and BB Arachis genomes, and with other legume genomes, in particular the sequenced genomes of Lotus and Medicago, providing insight into legume genome evolution.
Construction of BAC libraries in some plants can require substantial effort due to particular chemical constitution as already experienced by us before . For Arachis, obtaining good quality HMW DNA was difficult due to contamination from polyphenols and carbohydrates, which are abundant in Arachis leaves. A number of steps had to be added to the standard protocols of nuclei extraction and several ligations had to be made to obtain a reasonable number of BAC clones. These difficulties were also reported by Yuksel and Paterson  for the construction of the A hypogaea BAC library.
The genome coverage of the BAC libraries was estimated between 7.4 and 5.1 haploid genome equivalents for the A genome and 5.3 to 4.5 for the B genome. These disparities are due to variations of the density of restriction sites in certain genome regions or difficulties in cloning too large or too small fragments . Considering that 99% coverage is equivalent to 4.7× haploid genomes A. duranensis and A ipaënsis genomes are well represented and the libraries will be suitable for many applications.
The availability of BAC libraries from diploid Arachis will greatly facilitate the development of a reference physical map for Arachis. The construction of this physical map will be initiated soon with the A. duranensis BAC library. This species was used as a parent of the mapping population used for the construction of the Arachis SSR-based map . A. ipaënsis is also the parent of a mapping population . This will facilitate the integration of genetic and physical maps.
The exploitation of peanut's diploid wild relatives for breeding is very attractive since they possess various resistances to biotic and abiotic stresses. The two species used to make the BAC libraries harbour resistances to nematode and fungal diseases[41, 42]. These new BAC resources will help the tagging and/or the isolation of the corresponding resistance genes. For example, a QTL for resistance to late leaf spot, caused by Cercosporidium personatum has been mapped in a cross of A. duranensis with A. stenosperma . S1_A_36, a RGA that co-segregates with this QTL has been used to identify two BAC clones in the A. duranensis library, whilst no clones in the A. ipaënsis library were found. Sequencing of the BAC clones should enable the identification of microsatellites in the target region, thus providing more convenient markers for tracking the QTL in segregating populations.
In summary, here we describe the production of BAC libraries for the AA and BB genomes of Arachis. The libraries will be a useful resource for the isolation of genes, the construction and correlation of physical and genetic maps, the isolation of probes for cytogenetic analysis, the study of the evolution of the two genome types, and, by comparison with the allotetraploid genome of cultivated peanut, for the study of the evolution of polyploid genomes.
Seeds were obtained from the Arachis germplasm collection, maintained at Embrapa Genetic Resources and Biotechnology – CENARGEN (Brasília-DF, Brazil). The germination was improved by placing the seeds on a blotting paper humidified with a 1% Ethephon. For HMW DNA isolation, A. duranensis V14167 (genome AA) and A. ipaënsis KG30076 (genome BB) were grown under greenhouse conditions. Young leaves were collected in liquid nitrogen then stored at -80°C.
Probe labelling and fluorescent in situhybridization
Whole genomic DNA from A. duranensis and A. ipaënsis were used as probes in genomic in situ hybridization (GISH). Probes were labelled with digoxigenin-11-dUTP (Roche, Mannheim, Germany) or biotin-11-dUTP (Sigma) by nick translation.
Pre-treatment of preparations, chromosome and probe denaturation, conditions for the in situ hybridization (hybridization mixes contained DNA probes at a concentration of 2.5–3.5 ng/μL), post-hybridization washings, blocking, and indirect detection by fluorochrome conjugated antibodies were performed according to Moscone et al. Antibodies consisted of mouse anti-biotin (Dakopatts, Dako, Carpinteria, California, USA) and sheep anti-digoxigenin conjugated to fluorescein isothiocyanate (FITC) (Roche) in PBS (0.13 mol/L NaCl, 0.007 mol/L Na2HPO4, 0.003 mol/L NaH2PO4), 3% (w/v) bovine serum albumin (BSA) or, rabbit anti-mouse conjugated to tetramethyl-rodamine isothiocyanate (TRITC) (Dakopatts) and FITC-conjugated rabbit anti-sheep (Dakopatts) in PBS, 3% (w/v) BSA. Preparations were counterstained and mounted with Vectashield medium (Vector Laboratories, Burlingame, California, USA) containing 2 μg/mL of 4',6-diamidino-2-phenylindole (DAPI, Sigma).
Fluorescence microscopy and image acquisition
Chromosomes were viewed and photographed with a Leica DMLB fluorescence microscope (Leica, Heerbrugg, Switzerland) equipped with a computer-assisted Leica DC 250 digital camera system. Red, green, and blue images were captured in black and white using appropriate filters for TRITC, FITC, and DAPI excitation, respectively. Digital images were pseudo-coloured and combined using IM 1000 Leica software, then imported into Adobe Photoshop, version 7.0 (Adobe, San Jose, California, USA) for final processing.
HMW DNA isolation
Nuclei were isolated from leaves according to Meyers et al.  with some modifications. Fifty grams of young leaves were ground in liquid nitrogen and nuclei were liberated by incubating the cell extract at 4°C for 20 min in HB 1× extraction buffer, plus 0.2% of polyvinylpyrrolidone (PVP 40). PVP was added to the buffer to reduce the production of oxidizing polyphenolic substances. To eliminate cell debris, the leaf homogenate was filtered successively through four layers of cheesecloth then two layers of Miracloth (250 μm), (Calbiochem, UK) and a low speed centrifugation (60 × g for 2 min) was performed. Centrifugation at 850 × g for 8 min at 4°C was followed by a Percoll gradient (37.5%) to separate nuclei from the pectin matrix . The nuclei was washed in 20 mL of HB 1× extraction buffer without β-mercaptoethanol and Triton-100×, and then centrifuged at 850 × g for 8 min at 4°C. Finally the nuclei pellet was resuspended in 1 mL of filtered HB 1× and embedded in 1.2% low-melting-point agarose plugs (InCert Agarose, Cambrex-Bioscience, Rockland, Inc.). An aliquot of the nuclei extraction was evaluated under a microscope using DAPI staining to observe the integrity of the nuclei and the purity of the preparation in terms of organelle contamination. Agarose plugs containing HMW DNA were incubated for 24 h at 50°C in lysis buffer (5% Sodium Lauryl Sarcosyl, 0.625 M EDTA pH 9.0, 50 mg Proteinase K), washed for 1 h at 4°C in inactivation solution (0.5 M EDTA, pH 8.0, 1 mM PMSF), then washed four times for 30 min in TE 10/10 (10 mM Tris-HCl, 10 mM EDTA, pH 8.0). An extra HMW DNA purification step was conducted with a pulsed-field gel electrophoresis (PFGE) using a CHEF Mapper™ XA apparatus (Bio-Rad, U.K.) at 6 V/cm, with 3 s of switch time, and an angle of 120° for 40 min aiming to eliminate the degraded DNA. Agarose plugs were finally washed four times for 30 min in TE 10/1 (10 mM Tris-HCl, 1 mM EDTA, pH 8.0). at 4°C before being used for restriction enzyme digestions.
BAC library construction
Agarose plugs containing HMW DNA were chopped into small pieces and incubated on ice, with agitation, three times in 1 mL of HindIII restriction buffer (Gibco BRL, USA), with buffer exchange every 30 min. Seven units of HindIII was added to each chopped plug and allowed to diffuse for 4 hours on ice. For partial digestions, the reactions were incubated for 15 min at 37°C and then stopped by adding one-tenth of the total volume of 0.5 M EDTA, pH 8.0. Partially digested HMW DNA was size-selected by two successive PFGE in 1% GTG SEAKEM agarose gels in 0.5× TBE at 14°C. The first-sizing was performed at 6 V/cm, with 1 s to 50 s of switch-time, and an angle of 120° for 20 h. Two regions from 80 to150 kb and 150 to 250 kb were excised from the gel and loaded onto a new gel. The second-sizing selection was then performed at 6 V/cm, with 3 s of switch time, and an angle of 120° for 20 h. The regions from 100 to 250 kb were cut out from the latter gel and the DNA was recovered through an electro-elution (BIO-RAD/electro-eluter, UK). DNA concentration was estimated in 1% agarose gel in 1× TAE. Several ligation reactions were tested containing different ratios of vector to insert. A constant 30 ng of the commercial vector "pIndigo BAC-5 HindIII-Cloning Ready" (Epicentre, USA) was used, and varying amounts of DNA ranging from 50 to 600 ng of HMW DNA were used. One microlitre of ligation was mixed to 20 microlitres of competent E. coli cells (ElectroMAX DH10B, Invitrogen) and electro-transformed using a BRL Cell-Porator system according to the manufacturer's recommendations but with a charge rate of 355 volts. Transformants were selected on 2YT plates (tryptone 16 g/L, yeast extract 10 g/L, sodium chloride 5 g/L, agar 16 g/L) containing 12.5 μg/mL of chloramphenicol, 50 μg/mL of 5-bromo-4-chloro-3-indole-β-D-galactopyranoside (X-Gal) and 25 μg/mL of isopropyl-thiogalactoside (IPTG). White colonies were picked using a Q-Pix 2 colony picker robot (Genetix) and transferred to 384-well plates containing 80 μL of 2YT, 7% glycerol. Microplates were incubated for 18–20 h at 37°C and stored at -80°C.
BAC library screening and DNA isolation
For estimation of BAC clone insert sizes, random individual clones were grown in 100 μL pre-innoculum and then in 3 mL 2YT liquid medium containing chloramphenicol (12.5 μg/mL). BAC DNA was isolated using a QIAGEN BIO-ROBOT 9600 (Qiagen GmbH, Germany). BAC DNA was digested with NotI to release the inserts. The digested clones were separated by PFGE at 6 V, a switch time from 5 to 15 s, an angle of 120° and run for 15 h. High-density filters were made using a Q-Pix 2 robot (Genetix). Each high-density filter contained 18,432 double-spotted clones. Hybridisations were performed as described in the Clemson BAC protocols . Filters were exposed for 24 h to Ferrania LifeRay XCG-films.
Estimation of organelle contamination in both libraries was evaluated by hybridization of high-density filters using probes from a spinach chloroplast gene, the large Rubisco subunit (1.5 kb) and a wheat mitochondrial gene of cytochrome oxidase cox I (1.3 kb) . BAC libraries were also hybridized to probes from single-copy genes that have been defined as legume anchor markers  and the Arachis resistance gene analogue S1_A_36  (Genbank accession AY157808). This RGA was isolated from the AA genome species A. stenosperma and has been found to co-localize with a QTL for resistance to the late-leaf spot Cercosporidium personatum .
