The goal in this experiment was to achieve direct plasmon transfer via cell fusion. Two lines were used - a normal fertile line of P. hybrida, and a cytoplasmic male sterile (cms) line with the nuclear background of P. parodii. Two plants phenotypically similar to the original male sterile line were developed from protoplasts, but instead of being cms they were male fertile. On the other hand, two plants typical of the original normal line developed from protoplasts, but they were cms instead of fertile. Chromosome counts were done and in all cases the expected diploid number (=14) was found. Genetic analysis showed that sorting out of cms and fertile segregants was evident in the first and second backcross of the cms cybrids. The fertile type cybrids were stable fertile for several generations of selfing and proper backcrossing. These results are discussed in the light of an earlier fusion experiment in which these two parental lines were involved. © 1984 Springer-Verlag.
