Resistance to potato leaf roll virus and potato virus y in somatic hybrids between dihaploid solanum tuberosum and solanum brevidens



Resistance to potato leaf roll virus and potato virus y in somatic hybrids between dihaploid solanum tuberosum and solanum brevidens



Theoretical & Applied Genetics 76(1): 113-117



Many somatic fusion hybrids have been produced between a dihaploid potato Solanum tuberosum and the sexually-incompatible wild species S. brevidens using both chemical and electrical fusion techniques. S. brevidens was resistant to both potato leaf roll virus (PLRV) and potato virus Y (PVY), the viruses being either at low (PLRV) or undetectable (PVY) concentrations as determined by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). The S. tuberosum parent was susceptible to both viruses. A wide range of resistance, expressed as a decrease in virus concentration to both viruses was found amongst fusion hybrids, four of which were especially resistant. The practicality of introducing virus resistance from S. brevidens into cultivated potatoes by somatic hybridisation is discussed.
