    Notes: Summary Highly repeated DNA of potato (Solanum sp.) was characterized by cloning various major repeated elements of the nuclear genome. The percentage of the nuclear genome of the specific fractions and the restriction enzyme patterns were determined in order to show the distribution and organization of the respective repeats in the genome of Solanum tuberosum cultivars, dihaploid breeding lines and in wild species of Solanum. Several of the clones obtained were represented in a high copy number but showed no informative RFLP patterns. More information was gained from ‘restriction satellite’ repeats. The clone pR1T320 was found to contain satellite repeats (360 bp in length) that are proportionally present in the genome of all Solanum species at frequencies, between 0.5% and 2.6% and which are differently organized. This repeat was also found in the genera Lycopersicon, Datura and Nicotiana. With various restriction enzymes characteristic RFLP patterns were detected. A more or less genus-specific element for Solanum was the 183-bp repeat (clone pSA287; between 0.2–0.4% of the nuclear genome) that was present in the majority of the Solanum species analyzed except S. kurtzianum, S. bulbocastanum and S. pinnatisectum. In a few wild species (prominently in S. kurtzianum, S. demissum and S. acaule) a specific repeat type was detected (clone pSDT382; repeat length approximately 370 bp) that could be used to trace the wild species introduced into S. tuberosum cultivars. The repeats analyzed together with the 18S, 5.8S and 25S ribosomal DNA (1.9–5.2%, corresponding to 1800-5500 rDNA copies) comprised approximately 4–7% of the Solanum genome.

    Notes: Abstract Species-specific repetitive DNA probes are a useful tool for the molecular identification of somatic hybrids. Therefore, the distribution of three repetitive DNA elements of Solanum was investigated in Solanum wild species, Solanum breeding lines, and in more distantly related species of the genera Lycopersicon, Nicotiana, and Datura. The clone pSCH15, obtained from S. circaeifolium, represents a new 168-bp repetitive element; it shows 73–79% sequence similarity to repetitive elements of S. brevidens and Lycopersicon species. The 163-bp element in pSBH6, cloned from S. bulbocastanum, turned out to be very similar (95% sequence homology) to the Lycopersicon element pLEG15/TGRI previously regarded to be present only in species of the genus Lycopersicon and in S. lycopersicoides. Lower sequence similarity of approximately 80% was observed to repetitive elements of S. brevidens which are organized differently. The repeats exhibited different degrees of specificity: by Southern hybridization the element represented by the clone pSBH6 could be detected in almost all Solanum species investigated here but only after long exposure to X-ray film. The previously described “Solanum-specific” element represented by the clone pSA287 was also found, although in a very low copy number, in Lycopersicon esculentum. Therefore, detection of the repetitive elements pSA287 and pSBH6 in those species in which the respective repeat is less represented depends on exposure time. In contrast, the element pSCH15 is prominently present only in a small number of Solanum wild species and — to some extent — in the diploid breeding lines as revealed after long exposure. Use of these repeated elements for the identification of specific genomes in protoplast-fusion hybrids between Solanum wild species and Solanum breeding lines, or between two breeding lines, was evaluated.
