Identification of loci associated with embryo yield in microspore culture of Brassica rapa by segregation distortion analysis
Isolated microspores of Chinese cabbage (Brassica campestris ssp. pekinensis) were incubated in modified NN medium containing 10% sucrose in darkness at 33°C for one day followed by culture at 25°C. After 14 days of culture, microspores developed into embryos ranging from globular to cotyledonary stage. Plants were regenerated after transfer of embryos to medium containing 3% sucrose and no plant growth regulators.
