A ditertiary compensating trisomic in pearl millet Pennisetum americanum (L.) Leeke



A ditertiary compensating trisomic in pearl millet Pennisetum americanum (L.) Leeke



Journal of the Indian Botanical Society 63(1): 57-60



The trisomic was derived from a cross of 2 translocation stocks obtained following gamma irradiation. Compared with the diploid, the trisomic is semidwarf, with reductions in size of the leaves, the spike and the grains; it is of a dark-green colour. Pollen fertility of trisomic and diploid was 94.4%. Cytological studies revealed that the most frequent (32.14%) metaphase configuration was a septavalent chain plus 4 bivalents; rings of 4 or 6 chromosomes were absent.
