Using leaf protoplasts of several highly inbred lines of petunia, it was possible to identify genetic variations with respect to their potential for growth on media containing specific hormone combinations. Following the testing of individual plants of two species with different hormone requirements, together with their F1 and backcrosses to the two parental lines, it was concluded that only a few genes may control such differences. The data also suggest that different stages of protoplast development may be controlled by different genes. The implications of this are discussed in relation to the development of selection procedures for the recovery of somatic hybrids following protoplast fusion. © 1977.
