What is the difference between Autopolyploidy and Allopolyploidy? Autopolyploidy arises by the fusion of gametes of the same species;. Allopolyploidy. Polyploidy is a condition in which an organism has more than two complete sets of chromosomes in every cell (i.e. > diploid). Autopolyploidy. Polyploidy is the state of a cell or organism having more than two paired ( homologous) sets of Autopolyploidy; Allopolyploidy; Paleopolyploidy; Karyotype; Homoeologous chromosomes. 7 Bacteria; 8 Archaea; 9 See also.

The presence of additional copies can also aid in establishing self-compatibility in species with selection against it.

Differences between Autopolyploidy and Allopolyploidy

Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. The formation of the tetraploid zygote by the fusion of two diploid gametes is shown in figure 1. The high prevalence of polyploids in some groups clearly suggests that this must somehow confer a competitive advantage for the taxon. Autopolypliody can promote the appearance of novel genes. A monoploid has only one set of chromosomes, and the term is usually only applied to cells or organisms that are normally diploid.

Because pairing between homoeologous chromosomes is rare in established allopolyploids, they may benefit from fixed heterozygosity of homoeologous alleles.

Variation and evolution in plants. Recombination also means that the hybrids can produce more diverse progenies, with high autopolyp,oidy of heterozygosity. Autopolyploidy arises by the fusion of gametes of the same species. On the other hand, allopolyploids display varying degrees of heterozygosity depending on the autopolploidy genomes. Madhani, Hiten D, ed.


However, autopolyploids can still promote the formation of novel genes.


Allopolyploidy is the containment of the multiple copies of chromosomes of different species. It can be defined in terms of the evolutionary process first sentence above or in terms of the behaviour of the chromosomes along the lines of the second sentence. In general, autopolyploidy, homoploid hybridization, and allopolyploidy are rare in comparison to ordinary speciation.

Due to the confusing number of chromosomes, more spindles may be formed in the cell, and this can lead to chaos during segregation.

However, there seems to be bias towards certain species pairing for the formation of certain allotetraploid species; where some species preferentially mate to form specific allotetraploids repeatedly.

For example, durum wheat is the result of the inter-species alpopolyploidy of two diploid grass species Triticum urartu and Aegilops speltoides. It occurs by the fusion of gametes of the same parent.

Did you know that you can take some of your time in high school to earn college credits? The meiosis occurs perfectly in these types of sympatric species since each type of chromosome set consists of another homologous chromosome set to pair.

Species whose znd do not have nuclei, that is, prokaryotesmay be polyploid, as seen in the large bacterium Epulopiscium fishelsoni. Polyploidy is the state of a cell or organism having more than two paired homologous sets of chromosomes.

Annual Review of Plant Biology. So, how does polyploidy come about? Allopolyploidy is seen in crops such as wheat and animals such as mules.

This is is an example of somatic doubling. Azotobacter vinelandii can contain up to 80 chromosome copies per cell. For example, Triticale is the hybrid of wheat Triticum turgidum and rye Secale cereale. An Introduction to genetic analysis. An autopolyploid cell contains homologous chromosome sets. Homoploid hybridization is the process where two individuals belonging to two different species which by definition do not normally interbreed, nonetheless do produce a hybrid which does not backcross with either parental species, but establishes a new population.


Diandry is mostly caused by reduplication of the paternal haploid set from a single sperm, but may also be the consequence of dispermic two sperm fertilization of the egg.

Heredity is the passing on of characters from parents onto their progeny. Allopolyploidy arises by the fusion of gametes of the different species. Autopolyploidy refers to a type of polyploidy in which the chromosome complement consists of more than two copies of homologous chromosomes. The main difference between autopolyploidy and allopolyploidy is the type of chromosome sets in their nucleus.

Phylogenetics for allopolyploids

Both bread wheat and Triticale are examples of an allopolyploids with six chromosome sets. The wheat pollen can fuse with other species in the same genus, producing sympatric species. They either occur naturally e. Typically, most eukaryotic organisms are diploid in their lifetime. Sympatric speciation commonly occurs in wheat, which is a type of grass. Allopolyploidy, on the other hand, occurs when the individual has more than two copies but these copies, come from different species.
