Sample text

Vulgare and H. bulbosum involves preferential chromosome removal of later parent following fertilization. The completely grown embryos (caryopsis) are rescued (in-vitro) before endosperm disintegration, usually 12–14 days after pollination, to recover hybrids or haploid plants. The chromosome elimination is genetically controlled and genes involved in the chromosome elimination of H. bulbosum chromosomes have been mapped on H. vulgare chromosomes 2 and 3 (Ho and Kasha 1975). It has been further explained that elimination or retention of chromosomes is highly genotypic dependent (Pickering 1984) and it will only take place if the parents are grown in a cold temperature below 18 °C together with the application/spray of growth hormones/regulators (like 2,4-D, or Dicamba) after 1–2 days of pollination as illustrated by Devaux and Pickering (2005).

2000) have been illustrated as major aspects affecting the frequency of green plants to a greater extent in wheat. The spray of growth regulators following pollination (2,4-D or/and Dicamba) or injection in last internode have significantly enhanced embryo production (Wedzony et al. 1998). The frequency of haploid production in oat using maize as a wide hybridizer is low (Rines and Dahleen 1990) because maize chromosome are not completely or entirely removed/eliminated during caryopsis. It often results in the production of more polyhaploids than haploids, though; these polyhaploids have been exploited in other genetic studies due to their use in the production of aneuploids (Rines 2003).

The preponderance of one pathway over other is governed by several elements. In this regard, pretreatments in the form of cold, heat, and starvation or any kind of stress play a critical role to decide the fate of microspores (Kasha et al. 2001). The adaptation of pathway varies considerably among species. Recent advancements in video cell tracking system and development of flow cytometry will definitely assist the molecular scientists to improve their understanding on how complex mechanism of microspore conversion from gametophytic to sporophytic pathway take place and ultimately culminate these microspores to haploid plants.
