Analysis of molecular variation in the organellar genomes of Triticum and Aegilops was initiated by Vedel et al. (1978). The chondriomes of these species appear to G.-Z. Wang · Y. Matsuoka · K.

They included nine structural genes encoding the ATP synthase α and 9 subunits (atpA and atp9), the ATP syn-thase subunit 6 and ribosomal protein S13 (atp6 and rps13), theapocytochrome b (cob), the cytochrome oxidase subunits, I, II andIII (cox1, cox2 and cox3) and ORF25 (orf25). References for these genes are given elsewhere (Wang et al. 1997). PCR was carriedout using total DNA of T. aestivum cv ‘Chinese Spring’ as the template.
