al·lo·ploid

(al'ō-ployd),
Relating to a hybrid individual or cell with two or more sets of chromosomes derived from two different ancestral species; depending on the number of multiples of haploid sets, alloploids are referred to as allodiploids, allotriploids, allotetraploids, allopentaploids, allohexaploids, etc.
See also: heterokaryon.
[allo- + -ploid]

allotetraploid

a form of polyploidy; see ALLOPOLYPLOID.

Phylogenies constructed with multiple accessions of diploid parentals and allotetraploids can show multiple origins if several accessions of a polyploid appear more closely related to separate accession from one or more of the parental (Soltis & Soltis 1999).
Johnson and Johnson (2006) first demonstrated that Collomia biflora was an allotetraploid using evidence from nuclear idhA and idhB genes.
It is speculated that allotetraploid cotton became a host of CLCuD after polyploidization where susceptibility genes were provided by wild species belong to D genome.
Only two taxa have been proposed to have allotetraploid origins.
Traditional breeding has generated improved drought-resistant forage species by combining genes from closely related species, for example, the allotetraploid hybrid between L.
truncatus is an allotetraploid species and that in such species the genetic load is expected to be lower than in diploid species (Lande and Schemske 1985), though a thorough theoretical analysis has still to be performed.

This species also displays cytotype variations, especially with the presence in the Middle Atlas of at least one allotetraploid population.
Amsinckia gloriosa is almost certainly an allotetraploid, as it displays disomic inheritance at the one variable electrophoretic marker locus in each population and is a fixed heterozygote at many of the other markers.
