Environmental variation for outcrossing rate in rapeseed (Brassica napus)

, : Environmental variation for outcrossing rate in rapeseed (Brassica napus). Tag. Theoretical and Applied Genetics. Theoretische und Angewandte Genetik 84(3-4): 303-306

Rapeseed (Brassica napus) is a predominantly selfpollinated crop with about one-third outcrossing. The outcrossing rate may be influenced by environmental factors, and hence changes in the heterozygosity level of a variety may occur during multiplication. In an investigation on environmental variation in outcrossing, we estimated the outcrossing rate in the Swedish spring rapeseed cv 'Topas' by isozyme analysis and found that outcrossing varied from 12% to 47% over five locations in Sweden, Denmark and Germany. Among flowers at different positions on the same plant, average outcrossing varied from 11% at the top to 39% at the bottom of the plant. In conclusion, environmental factors can greatly influence the outcrossing rate in rapeseed, and an investigation therefore merit further studies.

Although the reinnervation of muscle grafts has been demonstrated, the question remains as to the source of neurons reinnervating the graft. A muscle graft could be reinnervated by its original neurons (neural neurotization) or by sprouting of axo...
