      Incompatible nuclear-cytoplasmic interactions are responsible for the phenomenon of cytoplasmic male sterility in plants. We have analysed male sterile (2077A, 296A), maintainer fertile (2077B, 296B) and fertility restored (2077R, 296R) lines of sorghum for the restriction fragment locations of various mitochondrial genes and their transcripts. We report here a polymorphism in genes related to the ATP synthase complex between two different cytoplasms from the A and B set of lines of 2077 and 296. There is also a difference in the transcript size of theatpA gene between the A and B cytoplasms. We propose that incompatibility in nuclear cytoplasmic interactions may be explained in terms of incompatible subunits being synthesized by the mitochondria and nucleus for a multisubunit complex of the mitochondrial membrane such as ATPase.

      Amaranths are an important group of plants and include grain, vegetable and ornamental types. Despite the economic importance of the amaranths, there is very little information available about the extent and nature of genetic diversity present in the genusAmaranthusat molecular level. We now report the randomly amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD) profiles of different species ofAmaranthusas well as different accessions of the species. These RAPD analyses have been carried out using 65 arbitrary sequence decamer primers. From the RAPD data, an UPGMA dendrogram illustrating the inter-as well as intra-species relationships has been computed. The putative hybrid origin of A.dubiousfromA. hybridusandA. spinosusis also ruled out by the RAPD data. The trends of species relationships amongst the amaranths determined by RAPDs is consistent with their cytogenetic and evolutionary relationships that have already been determined.
