Dominant genes are the main cause of the heterosis induced by fasciated mutants of different lines of Pisum sativum. Most of these cases were originally interpreted by different authors as examples of monogenic overdominance. Several not-closely-linked genes appear to have mutated simultaneously in most of the fasciated lines. Although fasciation itself is recessive, other mutant characters, such as lateness, increased stem length (number and length of internodes) and, in part, seed production… CONTINUE READING
