Isozyme inheritance and variation in Actinidia was investigated using 23 enzyme systems. Ten isozyme loci from six enzyme systems, Acp-2, Est, Prx-1, Prx-2, Prx-4, Prx-5, Pgi-2, Pgm-2, and Tpi, were found to be inherited as single Mendelian genes in families of two interspecific crosses. Disomic inheritance detected at ten loci in progenies of a cross between the hexaploid A. deliciosa × diploid A. chinensis, provided convincing evidence that A. deliciosa is an allohexaploid. Allelic segregation for tetrasomic inheritance at ten isozyme loci was demonstrated in the progenies of a cross between the tetraploid A. chinesis × diploid A. eriantha, a result suggesting the autotetraploid origin of the tetraploid A. chinensis which apparently originated from its diploid ancestor A. chinensis. A high level of isozyme variation and heterozygosity were observed in the 22 cultivars and 56 plants of 28 Actinidia taxa. Allozyme phenotype can be used effectively for cultivar identification.

Most seed produced impatiens today are F1 hybrids. The seed of F1 hybrids is produced by hand-emasculation of the seed parent or the use of some types of male sterility system. The male sterility systems used in impatiens breeding have never been reported, and is proprietary information of seed companies. The objective of this study was to investigate the types of male sterility involved in impatiens. Eighteen inbreds and 14 hybrids were investigated. One sterile inbred line was selected and crossed with several inbred fertile lines for inheritance analysis. The F1 progenies were all fertile, and backcrossed to the sterile parent. The F2 and backcross populations indicate that the inheritance is controlled by a single recessive ms gene. Information concerning with a possibility of cytoplasmic-nuclear gene interaction will be discussed.
