A novel restriction fragment, which was not present in either parent's mitochondrial DNA, was cloned from the mitochondrial genome of a somatic hybrid Petunia line. This fragment resulted from interspecific recombination between homologous mitochondrial DNA regions of the parental plants, Petunia line 3704 and line 3688. Hybridization with a cloned Petunia… CONTINUE READING
