Virescent mutations produce plants in which young leaves have reduced chlorophyll levels but accumulate nearly normal amounts of chlorophyll as they age; they are predominantly nuclear mutations. We describe here a virescent mutation (designated Vir-c) found in a somatic hybrid line derived from Nicotiana tabacum L. and Nicotiana suaveolens Lehm. This mutation is inherited maternally. Young, half-expanded Vir-c leaves contained three to six times less chlorophyll than did control leaves, and… CONTINUE READING
