Abstract Reciprocal differences persist in nature because of the unequal contribution of cytoplasmic determinants from male and female gametes to the zygote. The inheritance of genetic differences is an important factor that influences various traits, including somatic embryogenesis and regeneration in vitro. In this report, we estimate the cytoplasmic and maternal effects in pearl millet and their adequacy in describing the observed reciprocal differences based on an in depth study of the… Expand
Reciprocal differences and combining ability for growth and yield components in cacao (Theobroma cacao L.): a case of recommended cacao varieties in Ghana
The presence of reciprocal differences for all traits suggests the influence of maternal effects in controlling the traits, and manual pollinations for commercial seed production should follow established protocol and clones recommended as female and male parents used strictly as recommended.

This review is to present current knowledge about cytoplasmic and cytonuclear effects on agronomic traits bearing in mind the prospective utilization of all the genomes in plant breeding. Expand


Biometric-genetic analysis of in vitro callus proliferation in rapeseed (Brassica napus)
Three parents Orakel, ACSN1 and Boanty were identified as potential genotypes to be exploited for callus growth improvement by hybridization followed by selection because of better breeding value, high per-se performance, and desirable position in the Wr –Vr graph. Expand
Genetic variation in tissue cultures of red clover
The data indicate that improvement in the frequency of plantlet regeneration from callus of red clover could effectively be achieved by breeding and selection for embryogenic types. Expand
Genetic analysis of organogenesis in the cotyledons of zygotic embryos of sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.)
Narrow-sense heritability for the number of explants producing shoots and roots was 65.8%, which suggests that organogenesis of currently inferior inbred lines in sunflower should be improved in a crossing program. Expand
The effect of parental genotype on initiation of embryogenic callus from elite maize (Zea mays L.) germplasm
Plant regeneration from Type 2 cultures of B73 and B73 hybrids has been obtained up to a year after initiation, but not all genotypes were capable of sustained subculture and plant regeneration. Expand
Inheritance of somatic embryogenesis and plantlet regeneration from primary (type 1) callus in maize
Analysis of genetic variances suggests at least one gene (or block of genes) controls the expression of the frequency of somatic embryogenesis in these crosses of inbred, hybrid, F2 and backcross generations. Expand
Diallel analysis of callus growth and plant regeneration in rice seed-callus
Genetic characteristics of callus growth and plant regeneration in rice with seed-derived calli were studied in 6 × 6 diallel crosses using Japonica cultivars and relationship between Vr and Wr in the 5 × 5 subdiallel for plant regeneration showed that Daikoku 1, which had a relatively high capacity for plant Regeneration, possessed more dominant genes, while Norin 1 and Kuju, who had lower capacities, possessed recessive genes.

Inheritance of somatic embryogenesis and organ regeneration from immature embryo cultures of winter wheat
SummaryDiallel analyses of F1 and reciprocal crosses among five winter wheat lines show that additive, non-additive, and cytoplasmic genetic effects were significant in the genetic control of somaticExpand
Genetic analysis of in vitro callus and production of multiple shoots in eggplant
Genetic analysis of four in vitro characters (callus initiation, callus productivity, embryogenic callus percentage, and mean number of regenerated shoots per callus) was conducted among four cultivars of eggplant and two related species shows that these traits can be easily transferred into economically important cultivars with low tissue culture response or recalcitrance.

On the genetic improvement of androgenetic haploid formation in Hordeum vulgare L.
Comparisons of microspore regeneration frequencies of hybrids and their parents indicated that culture responsiveness is a heritable, complex character involving at least two different and separately inherited mechanisms:1) the ability ofmicrospores within anthers to divide and give rise to calluses and subsequently2)the ability of calluses for morphogenesis, to yield green or albino plants.

Genetic analysis of in vitro plant tissue culture responses and regeneration capacities
It is concluded that the choice of parental strains for a breeding program should be realized on agronomic criteria rather than on compatibility with the tissue culture technique used, since it is relatively easy to incorporate short-term tissue culture capacity into agronomically valuable genotypes.
