Abstract

Mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA) was characterized by RFLPs in 94 strains of foxtail millet, Setaria italica (L.) P. Beauv. Three RFLP patterns were observed by using rice atp6 as a probe, and were designated as types I-III. Difference between types I and II seems to be attributed to recombination between two atp6 genes. In East and Southeast Asia and Afghanistan, both of types I and II were found, while type I was predominant in India, Central Asia and Europe. In China, type III was also found. Chinese strains showed higher gene diversity than those from other regions. This result coincided the previous studies on isozymes and nuclear RFLPs.
