Title:
The effect of the cytoplasms of Brassica napus and B. juncea on some characteristics of B. carinata, including flower morphology
Publication date:
2007
Summary:
This study was conducted to assess the cytoplasm effects of Brassica napus and B. juncea on the some characteristics of B. carinata, as well as the phylogenetic distances separating the three species. Alloplasmic lines of B. carinata were developed from B. napus x B. carinata and B. juncea x B. carinata hybrids by recurrent backcrossing to the BC< sub>7 generation. Sixteen populations from three generations were compared for a number of characteristics. Plants with the cytoplasm of B. napus flowered later, had shorter filaments and longer pistils, lower pollen amount, lower seed set, lower petal length and width and different petal colour plants with the cytoplasm of B. juncea had shorter pistils and filaments, and lower petal length and width than their corresponding euplasmic sibs, respectively. The results suggest that the cytoplasm is involved in the development of flower organs. The natural species, B. carinata showed a balance between the nucleus and cytoplasm. The cytoplasm from B. napus showed a stronger disturbing effect than that of B. juncea, suggesting that B. carinata might be genetically closer to B. juncea than to B. napus. The significant difference in the alloplasmic effect of the cytoplasms of B. napus and B. juncea also suggests that in B. carinata the B genome may play a greater role than the C genome.
