The inheritance of cyanoglucoside content in Trifolium repens L.

A four generation backcross breeding program was undertaken. Analysis of the levels of cyanoglucoside in Acac progeny shows that the level of cyanoglucoside (linamarin and lotaustralin) is inherited and that part of the inherited variation in cyanoglucoside levels is attributable to the existence of different Ac alleles in the parent plant. In vitro microsomal cyanoglucoside biosynthetic activity was measured in a high-level and a low-level parent plant. There was no evidence for the presence of microsomes with different qualitative properties in the two plants. The Ac locus was shown to segregate independently of the S incompatibility locus.
