Artemisia vulgaris L. (Mugwort) is a threatened and valuable medicinal plant. Attempts have been made in this research to mass propagate its plantlets through in vitro liquid culture technology using Murashige and Skoog (MS) basal medium supplemented with 6-benzyl adenine (BA) (0.44-8.88 microM). Initially, 22.6 shoots (99.9% shooting frequency) developed(More)
An in vitro propagation system for Artemisia vulgaris L., a traditional medicinal plant, has been developed. The best organogenic response, including adventitious shoot number and elongation, was obtained when hypocotyl segments were cultured onto MS medium supplemented with 4.54 μM TDZ (N-phenyl-N′-(1,2,3-thidiazol-yl) urea). Up to 28 shoots formed per(More)
The effects of magnetic field (MF) treatments of soybean seeds on calli growth, cell damage, and biochemical changes under salt stress were investigated under controlled conditions. Soybean seeds were exposed to a 1.0 Hz sinusoidal uniform pulsed magnetic field (PMF) of 1.5 µT for 5 h/day for 20 days. Non-treated seeds were considered as controls. For(More)
Efficient plant regeneration through somatic embryogenesis was established for safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.) cv. NARI-6. Embryogenic calli were induced from 10 to 17-d-old cotyledon and leaf explants from in vitro seedlings. High frequency (94.3 %) embryogenic callus was obtained from cotyledon explants cultured on Murashige and Skoog’s germination(More)
This paper describes an efficient in vitro micropropagation of Artemisia vulgaris using shoot tip and nodal explants. Among the various growth regulators tested, MS medium and B5 vitamins supplemented with BA (4.44 μM) and KN (2.32 μM) combination was found to yield a better response than BA (4.44–13.32 μM) or KN (0.46–13.92 μM) alone in the medium. BA and(More)
Establishment of efficient protocol for the induction of somatic embryogenesis and plant regeneration from embryonic axes explants was achieved in Glycine max (L.) Merr. Highest frequency (92.9%) of embryogenic callus formation was obtained from embryonic axes explants of cv. CO-1 on MS media containing 2,4-Dichlorophenoxy acetic acid (2,4-D) and 6-benzyl(More)
The present study describes a system for efficient plant regeneration via organogenesis and somatic embryogenesis of safflower (Carthamus tinctorius L.) cv. NARI-6 in fungal culture filtrates (FCF)-treated cultures. FCF was prepared by culturing Alternaria carthami fungal mycelia in selection medium for host-specific toxin production. Cotyledon explants(More)
Thidiazuron (TDZ), primarily a cotton defoliant, has been later accepted as a plant growth regulator. In spite of extensive studies, the physiological function of TDZ is still uncertain. The aim of the present experiment was to study the activity of TDZ in in vitro regeneration of soybean. The seeds of soybean were cultured separately on MS and B5 medium(More)
Reserpine is a monoterpene indole alkaloid used to treat hypertension because of its hypotensive property and psychiatric disorders because of its tranquilizing effect. Protocol has been standardized to enhance the synthesis of reserpine in leaf derived calli of Rauvolfia tetraphylla L. by adjusting the auxins combinations in the medium consisting of MS(More)
