Seven alloplasmic, cytoplasmically male sterile, HA89 lines based on the MAX1, PET1, PET2, ANN2, ANN3, GIG1, and PEF1 cytoplasms were crossed with each of four male parents HAR4 seln 1, SA52, PAR-1673-2 seln 1, and DES-1474-2 to test the effect of cytoplasm on grain yield.
Fertility can be restored to cytoplasmically induced male sterility by introducing nuclear restorer genes.
Human wee1 maintains mitotic timing by protecting the nucleus from cytoplasmically activated Cdc2 kinase.
No phenotypic differences were observed between [F.sub.1] plants derived from reciprocal crosses, indicating that resistance to imazamox is not cytoplasmically inherited.
In addition, cytoplasmically inherited traits can generate differences among maternal families independent of nuclear genetic variation.
Yields and other agronomic characteristics of cytoplasmically pollen sterile corn hybrids, compared to their normal counterparts.
In this case, embryos developing within a maternal plant could differ in their complement of cytoplasmic genes, and the [F.sub.1] adults into which they grow may produce germ lines that also differ cytoplasmically.
Some pollen leakage, at a frequency of 0 to 3%, depending on the line, is also reported to occur in cytoplasmically male-sterile barley lines (Lehmann, 1988).
Cytoplamic incompatibility in inverters is the phenomenon in which a cytoplasmically inherited factor prevents the successful development of zygotes from matings between individuals infected with the factor and those uninfected (Barr 1980).
Possible effects of cytoplasmically inherited factors on speciation have not been widely explored.
