Somaclonal and gametoclonal variation

Somaclonal variation in banana: These variants are obtained from both meiotic and mitotic divisions. For genetic reasons, it is necessary to distinguish between plants regenerated from somatic gametockonal, somaclones and gametic tissues n, gametoclonesand also between somaclonal and gametoclonal variation.

Chromosome number can be doubled by treating haploid plants with colchicines which is a frequently used mutagen to induce diploidization. Somaclonal and gametoclonal variation in wheat, cotton and Brassica.

PDF of Somaclonal and gametoclonal variation

Jiangsu Journal of Agricultural Sciences 18 2: The variation observed among plants regenerated from gametic cell cultures is termed as gametoclonal variation. There are four distinct sources of variations when referring to gametoclonal variation: The concept of somaclonal variation is built on this definition. In vitro selection of somaclonal and gametoclonal variants for salt tolerance in rice.

New variation induced at the diploid level, resulting in heterozygosity. Clone is defined as a population of a cell or organisms derived from a single cell or common variwtion by mitosis.

Gametoclonal variation in crop plants. Biotechnology for solving agricultural problems: Gametoclonal variation in the anther culture of wheat. In vitro haploid production in higher plants 1, Problemy teoreticheskoi i prikladnoi genetiki v Kazakhstane: Gametoclonal variation The variation observed among plants regenerated from gametic cell cultures is termed as gametoclonal variation.

Gametoclonal variation in crop plants [1998]

Materialy Res ikanskoi konferentsii, Alma Ata, noyabrya, Cellular and Gametoclnoal Biology Letters 7 4: Direct expression of both dominant and recessive mutations in the regenerated plants is a distinct feature of gametoclonal variation. Variation is induced either during plant development or in vitro cell cultures, in the mitotic process. New variation at gametoclonall haploid level induced by the chromosome doubling, and iv.

Unlike somatic cells, which in theory should be homogeneous within any single plant, the gametes are products of meiosis, governed by Mendel’s laws of segregation and independent assortment. Somaclonal and gametoclonal variation.


The concept of gametoclonal variation evolved from that of somaclonal variation. Bermudagrass somaclonal variation for fall armyworm susceptibility.

Somaclonal variation in a somaclonal mutant HX-3 of rice. Both somaclonal and gametoclonal variations were detected in cultured cells and regenerated plants for morphological, biochemical characteristics, and chromosome number and structure.

Journal of Tropical and Subtropical Botany 10 2: Variations resulting from segregation and independent assortment. Since plants derived from gametic cells are usually haploid but to retain the fertility chromosome number should be doubled. variaation
