Ploidy manipulation is considered an efficient method to increase production potential of medicinally important compounds. Dracocephalum kotschyi Boiss. is an endangered medicinal plant of Iran. Various concentrations of colchicine (0.05, 0.10, 0.20, and 0.50% w/v) were applied to shoot apical meristems of D. kotschyi seedlings in two and four-leaf stages(More)
This study presents in vitro direct regeneration for Agastache foeniculum, a medicinal plant of the family Lamiaceae. Different explant types (cotyledons, hypocotyls, shoot tips, and nodal segments) were cultured on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with various concentrations of 6-benzylaminopurine (BAP) in combination with 1 μM indole-3-acetic(More)
Hairy root culture system is a valuable tool to study the characteristics of gene expression, gene function, root biology, biochemical properties and biosynthesis pathways of secondary metabolites. In the present study, hairy roots were established in Anise hyssop (Agastache foeniculum) via Agrobacterium rhizogenes. Three strains of Agrobacterium rhizogenes(More)
OBJECTIVE To develop an in vitro regeneration system to increase the recovery of Carum copticum L. plantlets as a part of developing a metabolic engineering program. METHODS The efficacy of different concentrations and combinations of 6-benzyladenine, indole-3-acetic acid and indole butyric acid on direct shoot regeneration and rooting of ajowan from(More)
A simple and efficient procedure was established for in vitro propagation of lattice henbane (Hyoscyamus reticulatus L.) using shoot tip explants cultured on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with N6-benzylaminopurine (BAP) and indolyl-3-acetic acid (IAA). In vitro-induced autotetraploid plants of H. reticulatus L. exhibiting high yield of(More)
INTRODUCTION Papaver somniferum is the commercial source of morphine and codeine. The isolation of effective genes involved in the morphine biosynthesis of P. somniferum is very important in the production of specific metabolites achieved using metabolic engi-neering techniques. In this pathway, the key enzyme COR is involved in the conversion of codeinone(More)
The medicinal plant Hyoscyamus reticulatus L. is a rich source of hyoscyamine and scopolamine, the tropane alkaloids. The use of hairy root cultures has focused significant attention on production of important metabolites such as stable tropane alkaloid production. Elicitation is an effective approach to induce secondary metabolite biosynthetic pathways.(More)
