The inheritance of mitochondrial DNA (mtDNA1) has been studied in the progeny of an interspecific cross of the amphibians Xenopus laevis and Xenopus mulleri. The mtDNAs of these two species were distinguished by molecular hybridization with cRNA transcribed from the mtDNA of the two species. F1 hybrid frogs from either reciprocal cross always contained only maternal mtDNA. Therefore, the mitochondria in somatic cells of the progeny are derived from the numerous mitochondria in the egg.
