Mixing of maize and wheat genomic DNA by somatic hybridization in regenerated sterile maize plants


Intergeneric somatic hybridization was performed between albino maize (Zea mays L.) protoplasts and mesophyll protoplasts of wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) by polyethylene glycol (PEG) treatments. None of the parental protoplasts were able to produce green plants without fusion. The maize cells regenerated only rudimentary albino plantlets of limited… (More)
