The Ogura cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) of radish has been used for hybrid seed production in radish and Brassica crops. It is the only CMS system occurring in wild populations for which the gene responsible for sterility and a restorer gene have been formally identified. In Japan, gynodioecious populations of radish carrying Ogura or an Ogura-related cytoplasm have been described. The occurrence of restorer genes for the Ogura CMS in wild radish (Raphanus raphanistrum) in France led us to… CONTINUE READING
