The amylose-free (amf) potato mutant 86.040 has been characterized phenotypically and genotypically. Not only storage starch in tubers and metabolic starch in leaves but also starch in cells with specific functions, such as columella cells in the root cap and guard cells of stomata, was amylose-free. Doubled amf-clones of 86.040 flowered well, but the percentage of stainable pollen was low (8.2%). Therefore, they were used as female parent in crosses with diploid amylose-containing plants.
