Analyses of mitochondrial DNA structure and expression in three cytoplasmic male-sterile chicories originating from somatic hybridisation between fertile chicory and CMS sunflower protoplasts

Cytoplasmic male-sterile (CMS) chicories have been previously obtained by somatic hybridisation between fertile industrial chicory protoplasts and CMS sunflower protoplasts. In this study, we compared three different CMS chicory cybrids that originated from three different fusion events. The cybrids were backcrossed with different witloof chicories in order… CONTINUE READING
