Induced mutations for aluminum tolerance after N-methyl-N-nitrosourea treatment of fertilized egg cells in rice (Oryza sativa L.)






Environmental and Experimental Botany 27(1): 37-43

Induced mutations for aluminum tolerance after N-methyl-N-nitrosourea treatment of fertilized egg cells in rice (Oryza sativa L.)

Following N-methyl-N-nitrosourea treatment of fertilized ovules, the M2 showed an increased range of variation in Al tolerance (measured from reduction in root length in 30 p.p.m. Al). This induced variability was transmitted to the M3, where 50 variants with different degrees of tolerance of Al toxicity, some not showing growth inhibition even at 30 p.p.m. Al, were found.
