Anther protein banding patterns of six diverse cytoplasmic male steriles, their maintainers,
one tester and six hybrids were studied in sorghum. The diverse cytosteriles differed from
each other but male steriles with the same cytoplasm had some !=ommonness. The male
steriles and their maintainers differed from each other, and the difference could be a useful
tool to differentiate the fertility-sterility status of sorghum genotypes. Further, some
protein bands present in the hybrids were derived from both the parents.
Keywords: Sorghum, cytosteriles, anther proteins, cytoplasm and characterization.
