DNA was isolated from arabidopsis leaves using either CTAB lysis (CTAB) or the DNeasy Plant Maxi Kit (DNeasy). Amplification reactions were prepared using purified DNA (1: 50 pg; 2: 100 pg) and primers to the Akin 10 gene. M: markers.

DNA (10 ng) from the indicated leaves or needles was amplified using universal primers for the noncoding intergenic spacer between the tRNA genes trnL (UAA) 5' exon and trnL (UAA) 3' exon of cpDNA (Taberlet, P. et al. (1991) Plant Mol. Biol. 17, 1105). M: 100 bp ladder.
DNA (50 ng) from leaves of the indicated in vitro-propagated sunflower (Helianthus) species was amplified using a 10-base RAPD primer and separated on a 1.5% agarose gel. M: 100 bp ladder. (Data kindly provided by H. J. Henn, Institute of Agricultural Botany, University of Bonn, Germany.)
