Enhanced anther culture efficiency of indica rice (Oryza sativa L.) through modification of the culture media
A revised medium has been suggested, on the basis of results, for the realization of improved anther culture efficiency and, consequently, improved feasibility of using doubled haploids in genetic and breeding research with indica rice. Expand
Diallel analysis of callus induction and green-plant regeneration in rice anther culture.
This study was conducted to determine the inheritance of callus induction and plant regeneration in rice (Oryza sativa L.) anther culture and the effects of genotype and genotype×medium interaction were significant. Expand
High-Frequency Plant Regeneration from Protoplasts of Indica Rice (Oryza sativa L.) Using Maltose
Of the three basal regeneration media compared, R2 medium was found to be more effective than MS or N6 medium in producing plants and Regeneration frequency increased 8 to 12-fold when maltose was used in place of sucrose as a carbohydrate source. Expand
Callus formation and plant regeneration in isolated pollen culture of rice (Oryza sativa L. cv. Taipei 309)
It was observed that only large pollen grains, 50–58 μm in diameter with thin, light pink colored cell walls seemed to develop into pollen embryos, which increased rapidly during the first 10 days of culture in the four media tested. Expand
The effect of temperature on the division of leaf protoplasts of Lycopersicon esculentum and Lycopersicon perivianum
A critical influence of temperature was observed for the initiation and maintenance of protoplast division in LyCopersicon esculentum and Lycopersicon peruvianum. Expand
Plant Regeneration from Isolated Microspore of Indica Rice
This is fhe first report of the regeneration of plants from isolated microscope culture of indicas, considered to be recalcitrant cultivars
Anther culture in rice: IV. The effect of abscisic acid on plant regeneration
ABA increased the frequency of calli producing green plants in Taipei 309 and the average green plant regeneration in all varieties tested and relatively high ABA concentrations resulted in decreased callus size and production of more compact and whitish calli. Expand
Field performance of anther-culture-derived lines from F1 crosses of Indica rices under saline and nonsaline conditions
This study demonstrates that through anther culture, it is possible to produce homozygous diploid lines in a short time and the possibility of regenerating recombinants with desirable characteristics such as good plant type and salinity tolerance, higher yield, and increased resistance to pests and diseases from both the parents is high.
