In the present survey, interspecific somatic protoplast fusion between a dihaploid cultivated potato Solanum L. tuberosum (BF15) and a wild species Solanum verneï (V3) has been performed using the PEG method. Five putative hybrids were first selected. Among them, only two were retained. DNA analysis, using flow cytometry, showed that the first hybrid (VB2) was dihaploid (2n=2x=24 chromosomes), whereas the second (VB1) was hexaploid (2n=6x=72 chromosomes). In the greenhouse, these putative… CONTINUE READING
