Abstract The results of our experiments executed to obtain tobacco male sterile lines through interspecific hybridization are summarized. Ten wild species from the genus Nicotiana: N. excelsior (exc), N. amplexicaulis (amp), N. rustica (rus), Nicotianaglauca (gla), N. velutina (vel), N. benthamiana (ben), N. maritima (mar), N. paniculata (pan), N. longiflora (lon) and N. africana (afr) were used as cytoplasmic donors and N. tabacum, cv. HarmanliiskaBasma (HB) as a donor of the nucleus. Genetic… 
Cytology and fertility of amphidiploid hybrids between Nicotiana wuttkei Clarkson et Symon and N. tabacum L.
In this study, the morphology, cytology and crossability of amphidiploid hybrids (2n = 8x = 80; WWW′W′TTT′T′) between Nicotiana wuttkei × Nicotianatabacum were studied. An R1 progeny of the hybrids
Interactions of Mitochondrial and Nuclear Genes That Affect Male Gametophyte Development
Apart from their agronomic importance in hybrid seed production, mutations that encode cytoplasmic male sterility (CMS) provide a means to probe the role of the mitochondrion in reproductive
Protecting the Food Supply in an Era of Pharmaceutical and Industrial Crops A Growing Concern Technical Report
Seed production is one of the least visible yet most important aspects of food and feed production. This part of the system is often taken for granted, even by the farmers who plant the seed. One of
The Use of Nicotiana Species in Tobacco Improvement
This review examines how and to what extent natural germplasm resources have been utilized in hybridization and introgression experiments over the past century, and focuses on individual Nicotiana species involved in interspecific hybrids with cultivated tobacco produced by sexual and asexual methods.


Development of four tobacco cytoplasmic male sterile sources using in vitro techniques
Results on obtaining tobacco male sterile forms through interspecific hybridization are summarized and the observed male sterility was preserved in BC1P2-BC7P2 progenies and was identified as cytoplasmicmale sterility (CMS) because it was inherited only throuth the female parent.
Cytoplasmic male sterility in Nicotiana tabacum L. obtained through interspecific hybridization
The authors' experiments prove that N. excelcior, N. amplexicaulis and N. rustica are carriers of cytoplasmic genes for male sterility that express in combination with nuclear genes of N. tabacum.
Floral Morphology and Some Other Characteristics of Iso-genomic Alloplasmics of Nicotianatabacum L.
The extent of male organ modifications varied from complete absence of stamens to full male sterility in Zamojska 4, and the majority of the alloplasmics showed response to tentoxin that was compatible with the cytoplasm donor.
Overcoming hybrid incompatibility between Nicotiana africana Merxm. and N. tabacum and development of cytoplasmically male sterile tobacco forms
The incompatibility between the wild species N. africana Merxm. and the cultivated species N. tabacum has been overcome by in vitro techniques. Underdeveloped F0 seeds, placed on MS medium with
Fusion of male-sterile tobacco causes modifications of mtDNA leading to changes in floral morphology and restoration of fertility in cybrid plants
All plants with parental male-sterile morphologies had banding patterns identical to the parental patterns found in Cyhrid plants obtained and categorized according to their flower morphologies.
Applications of genic male sterility in plant breeding
The application of GMS in hybridization intended for the introduction of alien genes is discussed as well as factors affecting the pollination of genie male steriles.
The Texas Cytoplasm of Maize: Cytoplasmic Male Sterility and Disease Susceptibility
An interaction between fungal toxins and URF13, which results in permeabilization of the inner mitochondrial membrane, accounts for the specific susceptibility to the fungal pathogens.
