Interspecific potato somatic hybrids between Solanum tuberosum L. (di)haploid C-13 and 1 endosperm balance number non-tuberous wild species S. etuberosum Lindl. were produced by protoplasts electrofusion. The objective was to transfer virus resistance from this wild species into the cultivated potatoes. Post-fusion products were cultured in VKM medium followed by regeneration of calli in MS13 K medium at 20�C under a 16-h photoperiod, and regenerants were multiplied on MS medium. Twenty-one somatic hybrids were confirmed by RAPD, SSR and cytoplasm (chloroplast/mitochondria) type analysis possessing species-specific diagnostic bands of corresponding parents. Tetraploid nature of these somatic hybrids was determined through flow cytometry analysis. Somatic hybrids showed intermediate phenotypes (plant, leaves and floral morphology) to their parents in glasshouse grown plants. All the somatic hybrids were malefertile. ELISA assay of somatic hybrids after artificial inoculation of Potato virus Y (PVY) infection reveals high PVY resistance.
