Genotype specificity of somatic embryogenesis and regeneration in maize


, : Genotype specificity of somatic embryogenesis and regeneration in maize. Bio-Technology (New York) 4(3): 219-223

Genetic engineering of corn, and other cereals, is currently limited because of the difficulty of regenerating plants via cell culture. Here we report that commercially important inbred lines and hybrids from several different maize groups are capable of being regenerated via somatic embryos. The inbred line A188 has a high frequency of plant regeneration and when crossed into recalcitrant inbreds the resulting F1 hybrids were regenerable. These results demonstrate that nuclear genes exhibiting dominance are important in the formation of somatic embryos and in regeneration of corn plants.
