Somatic hybridization of muskmelon (Cucumis melo L.) with kiwano (Cucumis metuliferus Naud.) and squash (Cucurbita pepo L.) by protoplast electrofusion



Somatic hybridization of muskmelon (Cucumis melo L.) with kiwano (Cucumis metuliferus Naud.) and squash (Cucurbita pepo L.) by protoplast electrofusion



Report Cucurbit Genetics Cooperative ( 13): 36-39



Protoplasts were isolated from cotyledons and leaves, fused and cultured. The percentage of binary fused protoplasts varied between 18 and 28%, depending on the parental species and origin of the protoplasts.
