Summary

Routine plant regeneration from haploid protoplasts of Hyoscyamus mutious (egyptian henbane) has been established as basis for auxotroph selection (Lörz et al., 1979; Wernicke et al., 1979). A series of four histidine-, one tryptophan-, three nicotinamide-, and one leucine-requiring auxotrophs of four nitrate nonutilizing lines and of two temperature-sensitive clones have been recovered (Strauss et al., 1981; Gebhardt et al., 1981). Protoplast fusion and subsequent selection by complementation led to the recovery of wild-type clones in various combinations, e.g., his- + trp-, nic- + nic-, nic- + NR-, ts + ts, ts + trp-, ts + his-. Intergeneric combination of one of the NR- auxotrophs of Eyosoyamus mutious with both the defined NR- mutants nia-115 and cnx-68 of Nicotiana tabacum (Müller and Grafe, 1978) yielded wild-type clones with the apoenzyme mutant exclusively. Intergeneric combination of one of the nic- clones of Eyosoyamus and the NR mutant cnx-68 of Niootiana gave wild-type clones with high morphogenetic potential producing a variety of different morphological types including flowering and fertile plants. Crossing analysis and anther culture analysis of these plants is in progress.
