The rice aneuploids with telochromosomes are ideal genetic stocks for chromosome arm identification and microdissection. A rice telo-tetrasomic line with two extra short arms of chromosome 5 (5S) was used in the present study. The arms of 5S were microdissected from the prometaphase cells in mitosis and amplified with linker adaptor PCR (LA-PCR). The amplified fragments, ranging from 200-3000 bp, were confirmed to be from the rice chromosome arm 5S by the rice STS and microsatellite markers.
