We investigated the effects of plant growth regulators [6-benzyladenine (BA), kinetin (Kin), 6-γ,γ-dimethylallylaminopurine (2iP), thidiazuron (TDZ) and α-naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA)], modified Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium containing 10 mM NH4 + and 5 mM NO3 − and supplemented with 2iP, BA, Kin and NAA (MSM medium), and two elicitors [jasmonic acid(More)
Chrysanthemum species are grown both as ornamentals and for the production of pyrethrum. Recent increased production and breeding efforts have raised the need for the conservation of valuable germplasm. Chrysanthemum has been cryopreserved by controlled-rate-freezing as early as 1990. We report here deep-freezing of shoot tips of C. morifolium var. Escort(More)
Shoot tips obtained from in vitro potato plants (three cultivars) were successfully cryopreserved by the combined vitrification-droplet method and subsequently regenerated shoots. The effect of apex size, sucrose concentration, preculture duration and cold hardening treatments on viability of cryopreserved shoot tips was studied. The excised shoot tips were(More)
Shoot tips obtained from in vitro Rosa plants (three cultivars) were successfully cryopreserved by a combined droplet vitrification method and subsequently shoots regenerated. The excised shoot tips (1–4 mm long) were incubated in a liquid MS medium supplemented with 2.5 mg l−1 thiamine, 0.2 mg l−1 biotin, 0.2 mg l−1 pyridoxine, 0.25 mg l−1(More)
The aim of the present study was to investigate the importance of the preculture conditions on the survival of apple (Malus domestica Borkh., cv. Romus4 and rootstock M106) shoot tips cryopreserved using a combined droplet vitrification procedure. Preculture was critical for the survival of apple shoot tips after cryopreservation. Among the different tested(More)
The droplet-vitrification method was applied to shoot tips of micropropagated strawberry plants (Fragaria x ananassa DUCH. cvs. 'Senga Sengana', 'Korona' and 'Aroma'). Shoot tips of 2 - 3 mm in length were precultured in sucrose (0.1, 0.25, 0.5, 0.75, 1.0 M) enriched media for 24 and 48 h. Subsequently, they were transferred into 6 microl droplets of PVS2(More)
A high performance liquid chromatography method with refractive index detection (HPLC-RI), for simultaneous determination of glucose, fructose, sucrose and sorbitol in leaf and/or apple peel samples from nine apple (Malus domestica Borkh.) cultivars and rootstocks, originating from a germplasm collection, has been developed and validated.

In this work the surface-enhanced Raman scattering (SERS) spectra of five genomic DNAs from non-cryopreserved control tomato plants (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill. cultivars Siriana, Darsirius, Kristin, Pontica and Capriciu) respectively, have been analyzed in the wavenumber range 400-1800 cm(-1). Structural changes induced in genomic DNAs upon(More)
In this work, surface-enhanced Raman spectra of ten genomic DNAs extracted from leaf tissues of different grapevine (Vitis vinifera L.) varieties, respectively, are analyzed in the wavenumber range 300-1800 cm-1. Furthermore, structural changes induced in grapevine genomic nucleic acids upon femtosecond (170 fs) infrared (IR) laser pulse irradiation (λ =(More)
