Androgenesis occurred from chile pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) anthers incubated in a continuous warm environment (29° C) with continuous light. Forty plantes and embryoids were retrieved from anther cultures and anllyzed for isozyme markers. Of these, 35 exhibited a single allele for markers suggesting microspore origin, while 5 were heterozygous indicating somatic tissue origin. Chromosome numbers were confirmed for 21 plantlets, of which 16 were haploid and 5 were diploid. However, two plants… CONTINUE READING
