The resistance to 5-methyltryptophan (5MT) in Datura innoxia plants regenerated from selected cultures was maintained for over 10 years and was inherited in progeny as if controlled by a single, nuclear, dominant gene. The resistance was caused by a feedback altered anthranilate synthase leading to high free tryptophan levels.
