IDENTIFYING QUINCE (CYDONIA OBLONGA) CULTIVARS BY MEANS OF APPLE AND PEAR MICROSATELLITES
Twenty-six apple and two pear SSRs were initially chosen as fingerprinting markers for quince. Eleven apple SSRs were discarded due to inadequate production of alleles. The remaining 15 apple and two pear SSRs generated a total of 65 alleles and were used to fingerprint a subset of 19 quince cultivars. The number of alleles per locus ranged from 2 for CH02b10 and CH03g06 to 6 for CH03d01, NZ02b1 and CH04e03 with an overall mean of 3.8 alleles per locus. Gene diversity (PIC) for the 17 SSR loci varied from 0.29 to 0.78. The primer pair CH05a04 was the most informative and CH02b10 the least informative. Based on the PIC values, nine of the primers: CH05a04; CH04e05; CH05d08; CH03d01; CH04e03; CH03g12; CH02c06; Nz02b1 and NH029a are suggested for use in fingerprinting quince cultivars.
