Allelism of pg14 and g5

Four plants heterozygous for pg14 (Peterson, P. A., Genetics 38:682-683, 1953) were pollinated by homozygous g5 Beckett, Coe, and Neuffer, MNL 47:147-148) and the F1 was tested in the sandbench. All four families segregated 1 normal to 1 pale green mutable, so it is evident that pg14 and g5 are allelic.
