Brassica napus lines with rearranged Arabidopsis mitochondria display CMS and a range of developmental aberrations


Numerous Brassica napus (+) Arabidopsis thaliana somatic hybrids were screened for male sterility and aberrant flower phenotypes. Nine hybrids were selected and backcrossed recurrently to B. napus. The resulting lines displayed stable maternal inheritance of flower phenotypes. Nuclear and organellar genomes were characterized molecularly using RFLP… (More)
