    Abstract

    The growth inhibitory activity of p-fluorophenylalv~ine (PFP) (concentration range 25--75 µg/ml) has been tested on callus initiation and early callus growth and on suspension cultures derived from one diploid and three haploid plants of Nicotiana syloestris. All the culture lines contained cells at more than one level of ploidy; the cultures of haploid origin contained a high level of haploid cells. Under conditions of partial growth inhibition by PFP there was, despite the reduced sensitivity of the cultures of haploid origin, no preferential growth of haploid cells in these cultures. Genotype not ploidy level determined sensitivity to growth inhibition by PFP.
