INHERITANCE OF LIGHT DEPENDENT PURPLE PIGMENTATION IN CHICKPEA

Published on

The inheritance of light dependent purple (LOP) pigmentation is worked out in
the marked crosses of chickpea. The simple leaf, non-LOP line ICC - 10301 and
Imperipinnate leaf, green line ICC - 32 were crossed by LOP pigmented, Imperipinnate
leaf plants. The Fl produced only LOP pigmented, Imperipinnate leaf plants in the
two crosses. The F2 segregated in two categories of LOP vs non LOP pigmented
plants in a ratio of 9 : 7, suggesting complimentary interaction of two genes. The
simple leaf segregation was found to be 1 : 3 with regard to Imperipinnate leaf,
which is dominant.
