Abstract
Cell division of cultured Citrus protoplasts was reversibly inhibited in the presence of exogenous phytohormones (auxins). When Citrus protoplasts were cocultured with hormone-requiring Nicotiana protoplasts, this block was released, presumably due to hormone depletion from the medium. The significance of coculture experiments for somatic hybrid selection is discussed.
