A reliable protocol for the in vitro propagation of adult plants of Helianthemum marminorense from nodal segments was developed. A culture medium test revealed that Woody Plant Medium (WPM) was the most suitable for the in vitro establishment and growth of this species. A treatment with 0.5 mg l−1 2iP gave the best results in terms of number of nodes and(More)
The effect of different doses of Cd (0.05, 0.1 and 0.2 mM) and subsequent period in a Cd-free medium on growth, the antioxidant status and the polyamine (PA) pattern was studied using in vitro cultured nodal segments of carnation. The Cd within the tissues increased in parallel with its concentration in the culture medium, inhibited growth, altered the(More)
Tetraclinis articulata shoot tips excised from in vitro grown shoots were cryopreserved using a modified PVS2-based vitrification protocol. Preliminary experiments with non-cryostored shoot tips showed that the high concentrations of sucrose in loading (LS), vitrification (PVS2) and unloading (US) solutions employed in the protocol were very toxic for the(More)
