SummaryCalli were initiated from immature embryos of 12 lines of hexaploid wheat (Triticum aestivum L. em. Thell). The lines were from 3 varieties — April Bearded, Bersee and Maris Huntsman — isogenic for the reduced height/gibberellic acid insensitivity (Rht) genes — Rht1, Rht2 and Rht3 — and the ‘tall’ (rht) allele. The dwarfing genes had significant effects on the growth and morphogenesis of calli. The genes interacted with the 2,4-D in the medium and the varietal background. Calli of each… CONTINUE READING
