dw2, a New Mutation of Beet Beta vulgaris L. Twelve dwarf plants were found in the second hybrid generation of beet. The average height of mutant plants was 21.8 cm, their leaf blades and flowers were significantly smaller than normal, and the plants exhibited male and female sterility. This dwarfism was shown to be caused by a mutation differing from that previously described in beet, which is named dwarf2 (dw2). The experimental evidence suggests that this mutation appeared in one of the first-generation plants. Based on plant phenotype in the first hybrid generation and the number of mutant plants in the second one, this mutation is suggested to be under recessive monogenic control of the dw2 gene. The genotypic class segregation in the second hybrid generation indicates that the dw2 gene is inherited independently of genes m, a1, and ap that control choricarpousness, gene male sterility, and pollen grain aggregation into tetrads. http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Russian Journal of Genetics Springer Journals

Abstract

Twelve dwarf plants were found in the second hybrid generation of beet. The average height of mutant plants was 21.8 cm, their leaf blades and flowers were significantly smaller than normal, and the plants exhibited male and female sterility. This dwarfism was shown to be caused by a mutation differing from that previously described in beet, which is named dwarf2 (dw2). The experimental evidence suggests that this mutation appeared in one of the first-generation plants. Based on plant phenotype in the first hybrid generation and the number of mutant plants in the second one, this mutation is suggested to be under recessive monogenic control of the dw2 gene. The genotypic class segregation in the second hybrid generation indicates that the dw2 gene is inherited independently of genes m, a1, and ap that control choricarpousness, gene male sterility, and pollen grain aggregation into tetrads.
