Fertile sterility maintainer mutants in cytoplasmic male sterile pearl millet



Fertile sterility maintainer mutants in cytoplasmic male sterile pearl millet



Crop Science 17(4): 635-637



A total of 107 natural male-fertile mutants occurred in A1 and A2 cytoplasms of cytoplasmically male-sterile (CMS) Pennisetum americanum. Three or four arose as nuclear mutations of the recessive r CMS maintainer gene to the dominant R male-fertility-restorer gene. The remaining 103 appeared to be cytoplasmic mutations that changed CMS A cytoplasm to the N cytoplasm that makes B lines male-fertile CMS maintainers.
