Extrachromosomal inheritance

In a summary and bibliographic reference in M.N.L. 52:35-36 (1978), we pointed out the effects in inheritance of a Euchlaena mexicana "prepotent" cytoplasm. This "prepotent" cytoplasm was introduced in the Instituto Fitotecnico de Santa Catalina in 1941, registered under No. 2587 as Euchlaena mexicana, designated as "Florida variety," coming from Huixtla, Mexican city, near the south Guatemala boundary.
