QTL mapping and associated marker selection for the efficacy of green plant regeneration in anther culture of rice.
Other varieties are Tubigan 7, the country's first product of marker-aided selection; and Tubigan 3, which is the agency's first variety developed through anther culture.
Varieties include Tubigan 7 (NSIC Rc142), the country's first product of marker-aided selection; Tubigan 3 (NSIC Rc130), PhilRice's first variety developed through anther culture; and Submarino 1 (NSIC Rc194), which can survive after submergence in floodwater for two weeks.
CNDH populations were developed from anther culture of F1, which was derived after a crossing WBPH, Sogatella furcifera resistance 'Cheongcheong' and susceptible 'Nagdong' lines.
Alternate techniques involve development of haploids using anther culture microspore culture and ovule culture.
For different micropropagation techniques (meristem culture axillary bud culture root culture leaf culture anther culture) any plant parts (axillary bud root leaf anther etc.) can be used because every cell has the ability to regenerate (totepotency).
Haploid production through anther culture has been referred to as androgenesis [4].
In vitro plant regeneration through anther culture of five rice varieties.
Zhong, et al., [9] reported formation of doubled hapioid sunflower plants by androgenesis using in vitro anther culture which later turned out to be derived from diploid callus of anther wall / connective tissue rather than from anthers.
