Genetic analysis of pollen viability: an indicator of heat stress in sunflower (Helianthus annuus L.)

Khuram Razaq, Saeed Rauf, Muhammad Shahzad, Ejaz Ashraf, Fawad Shah
2017 International Journal of Innovative Approaches in Agricultural Research  
Studies showed that pollen fertility was primarily controlled by dominant type of genetic variability which showed that selection per se for the pollen fertility could be improved through recurrent selection  ...  Therefore, pollen fertility index under heat stress can be exploited to differentiate resistant and susceptible genotypes.  ...  However, F1 mean pollen fertility was lower than parent with higher pollen fertility. F2 means of various crosses were lower than F1 but higher than parent with lower pollen fertility (Table 1 ).  ...

Seed evolution: parental conflicts in a multi-generational household

Nuno D. Pires
2014 Biomolecular Concepts  
Flowering plants took parental control one step further with the evolution of a biparental endosperm that derives from a second parallel fertilization event.  ...  This balance was achieved in part by changes in the genetic constitution of the endosperm and through epigenetic mechanisms that allow a differential expression of alleles depending on their parental origin  ...  This discussion went on through the 20th century, and until today the mechanisms that drove the evolution of double fertilization are not fully understood.  ...

Innovation and development of the third-generation hybrid rice technology

Chancan Liao, Wei Yan, Zhufeng Chen, Gang Xie, Xing Wang Deng, Xiaoyan Tang
2021 Crop Journal  
This paper discusses the establishment of "the thirdgeneration hybrid rice technology" and further innovations.  ...  Thus breeders have to breed all the desired traits into the maintainer line and then change the cytoplasm through several generations of crossing.  ...  Because male fertility of the PTGMS lines is reversible in response to environmental conditions, PTGMS lines can propagate themselves through self-pollination under conditions restoring the male fertility  ...
