Heritable phenotypic differences caused by epigenetic modifications, rather than DNA sequence mutations, pose a challenge to our understanding of natural. Epialleles can lead to variations at the phenotypic and molecular levels, epigenetic variations might be involved in plant adaptive evolution. In plants, silent epialleles segregating in Mendelian fashion can be stably inherited over many .. () Isolating mechanisms, evolution and temperature.

Epialleles via DNA methylation: consequences for plant evolution. – Semantic Scholar

P V ShivaprasadRuth M. Citing articles via Web of Science Again, methylation correlates with the epigenetic state of these systems.

To date, ecologically important genes with methylated epialleles have been found to affect floral shape, vegetative and seed pigmentation, pathogen resistance and development in plants.

Counter-intuitively, similar epigenetic silencing of the SUP gene was observed in met1 mutants and MET1 antisense lines. Tetsuji Kakutani; Epi-Alleles eevolution Plants: AvramidouIoannis V.

Compromised stability of DNA methylation and transposon immobilization in mosaic Arabidopsis epigenomes. GanopoulosAndreas G. The ectopic expression and hypomethylation of the repeats were also observed platn the late flowering ddm1 and ddm2 met1 lines, suggesting that the hypomethylation can generate the meiotically heritable epigenetic mark responsible for the late-flowering phenotype Soppe et al.

Intragenic revertants with normal flowering time have been recovered from fwa-1 after mutagenization, again suggesting that the original fwa-1 mutation is a gain-function mutation Soppe et al.

TGS is ln over generations, whereas PTGS is reset after meiosis and recurs in every generation at some stage of plant development. PTGS machinery may be involved in plant development.

Live-cell analysis of DNA methylation during sexual reproduction in Arabidopsis reveals context and sex-specific dynamics controlled by noncanonical RdDM. In Arabidopsismore examples of such epigenetic alleles affecting plant development have been identified using the DNA hypomethylation mutants and the linkage analysis.

For example, late flowering traits are frequently observed in ddm1 inbred lines and in lines expressing MET1 antisense RNA, suggesting the underlying mechanism is non-random and possibly epigenetic Ronemus et al. Mechanisms may exist that suppress uncontrolled transposition of these elements.

Epialleles in plant evolution

The meiotically heritable property of TGS would be advantageous for defense of the genome against transposon, as the silenced state is maintained throughout development. If so, mammals may modify it to control development through control of the DNA methylation pattern. Such heritable properties allow conventional genetic linkage analysis to identify the sequences affected in epigenetic variants.
