Comment
The Gli-1 loci are compound and are now considered to compose the omega-gliadin and gamma gliadin (699, 1017) multigene families (339), which in some circumstances may be divided into Gli-1-1 and Gli-1-2, respectively. The LMW glutenin multigene families, which are closely linked to the Gli-1 loci (419), are listed separately as the Glu-3 set (973). Recombination (1.7%) has been shown between Glu-B3 and Gli-B1 (971). The gene order in the short arms of group 1 chromosomes is not known. There is evidence that a few of the omega-gliadin genes are separated from the main omega-gliadin gene cluster (704).
A rational system of naming the alleles was produced by E.V. Metakovsky, N.I. Vavilov Institute of General Genetics, Moscow (703). This nomenclature is reproduced in the Catalogue of Gene Symbols for Wheat (9441). Where two varieties are given as prototypes for an allele, the first named is from the USSR and the second from elsewhere.
Three alleles at each of the Gli-1-1 (omega gliadin) loci were noted (973). The complexity of the Gli-1 compound loci is further emphasized by a report of individual genes being separable by recombination, where G1d-1A (a block of gamma and omega genes) is separable by 0.3% from Gld4-1A (omega gliadins) which is in turn, separable by 1.5% from Gld3-1A (omega gliadins) (777).
Variation at the Gli-1 loci has been described (454, 706, 795) and applied in mapping experiments (85, 150, 292, 788, 875, 794). Sixteen combinations of Gli-B1 and 4 combinations of Gli-D1 subunits are listed in 290. Multiple alleles described in 706, number 15 at Gli-A1, 18 at Gli-B1, and 8 at Gli-D1.
The Gli-1 alleles present in 57 Yugoslav wheat varieties were determined (705).
