Cytoplasmic male sterility in petunia was shown to be under plasmon-genome control. The male-sterile pheno type was variable in that breakdown at different stages of microsporogenesis and gametogenesis is under the control of a multiple genes system. Comparison of the known restorers in several petunia species revealed that male fertility restoration can be achieved by I) a single dominant gene that is not temperature sensitive, and 2) a multiple genes system that is temperature sensitive; dif ferent amounts of the proper alleles affect breakdown from early meiosis to full fertility. Different aspects of this work and a possible mode of action of the restorer genes are discussed. © 1978 AMERICAN GENETIC ASSOCIATION.
