Abstract: Genomic constitution of octoploid wheat-wheatgrass amphiploid Zhong 2 was analyzed by chromosome pairing and fluorescence in sim hybridization techniques. The results indicated that the octoploid wheatwheatgrass chromosomes in Zhong 2 were derived from the distant homologous genomes of wheatgrass ( Agropyron intermedium (Host) P.B. = Elytrigia intermedia (Host) Nevski = Thinotopyrum intermedium (Host) Barkworth and Dewey, and thew distant homologous genomes were not from the E geaome of T. elongatum 2x. Zhong 2 contained 12 wheatgrass chromosomes in which a pair of chromosomes was involved in translocation between wheatgrass and wheat chromosomes.

Key words: Common wheat, Wheatgrass, Octoploid wheat-wheatgrass, Chromosome pairing, fluorescence in situ hybridization
