Abstract

Conditions for highly efficient genetic recombination in by protoplast fusion are described. Protoplasts of and were formed by a modification of the glycine–lysozyme–lytic enzyme method (Okanishi, Suzuki & Umezawa, 1974). Regeneration of cells from protoplasts was monitored throughout the growth cycle and was most efficient when cells of either or were taken from the transition phase between the exponential and stationary growth phases. Fusion of protoplasts carrying different auxotrophic or chromosomal drug-resistance markers was achieved by treatment with polyethylene glycol, and high frequencies of stable genetic recombinants were obtained.
