Ribulose 1,5-diphosphate carboxylase/oxygenase was isolated from 14 N. rustica + N. tabacum somatic hybrid plants and was subjected to isoelectric focusing after carboxymethylation. The resulting polypeptide banding pattern for the nuclear-encoded small subunit of the enzyme showed bands derived from both parental species, whereas the banding pattern for the plastid-encoded large subunit showed bands characteristic of either N. rustica or N. tabacum, but not both species. Eleven plants expressed N. tabacum chloroplast genes.
