    Abstract

    Three cell lines with improved resistance to growth inhibition by chloramphenicol were selected from cell cultures of Nicotiana sylvestris. Resistance was retained in callus cultures of two out of three plants regenerated from one of the lines, but not in cultures of plants regenerated from the other two lines. Sexual progeny of the two resistant plants were either sensitive or showed slow segregation for chloramphenicol resistance. In callus from only two of the seedlings was inheritance of chloramphenicol resistance clearly demonstrated.
