Induction of somatic embryogenesis and adventitious shoots from immature leaves of cassava
TLDR
Results showed that auxin was a key factor for inducing embryogenic cells and the auxin enhanced formation of somatic embryo whereas 6-benzylaminopurine stimulated development of adventitious shoots. Expand
Sandalwood: basic biology, tissue culture, and genetic transformation
TLDR
Traditional methods of sandalwood production with complementary and more advanced in vitro technologies are summarized to provide a basis for researchers, conservationists and industry to implement sustainable programs of research and development for this revered genus Santalum. Expand
Comparative enhancement of germination and vigor in seed and somatic embryos by the smoke chemical 3-methyl-2H-furo[2,3-C]pyran-2-one in Baloskion tetraphyllum (Restionaceae)
TLDR
It is demonstrated that butenolide exhibits promotive effects on both germination of seed (stimulation of zygotic embryos), and stimulation of development and maturation of somatic embryos with B. tetraphyllum, providing a potential new class of phyto-active compounds for in vitro culture. Expand
RNA-Seq analysis identifies key genes associated with haustorial development in the root hemiparasite Santalum album
TLDR
The results suggest that genes encoding nodulin-like proteins may be important for haustorial morphogenesis in S. album and improve the understanding of haustorium development in root hemiparasitic species and will allow further exploration of the detailed molecular mechanisms underlying plant parasitism. Expand
Endogenous hormone levels and anatomical characters of haustoria in Santalum album L. seedlings before and after attachment to the host.
TLDR
Analysis of the endogenous hormone levels and the structural characters in S. album haustoria indicated that the haustia were able to synthesize phytohormones, which appeared to be necessary for cell division and differentiation during haustorial development. Expand
Somatic embryogenesis and enhanced shoot organogenesis in Metabriggsia ovalifolia W. T. Wang
TLDR
Somatic embryogenesis in this plant needs a high cytokinin concentration (BA; TDZ), as evidenced by histology, and this protocol provides a dual regeneration pathway via direct shoot organogenesis and somatic embryogenesis for an endangered species. Expand
DoGMP1 from Dendrobium officinale contributes to mannose content of water-soluble polysaccharides and plays a role in salt stress response
TLDR
Genetic evidence is provided for the involvement of GMP genes in the biosynthesis of mannose-containing polysaccharides and the mediation of GMPs in the response to salt stress during seed germination and seedling growth. Expand
Shoot organogenesis and somatic embryogenesis from leaf and shoot explants of Ochna integerrima (Lour)
TLDR
The effects of plant growth regulators and their concentrations on the induction of somatic embryogenesis and shoot organogenesis from leaf and shoot explants of O. integerrima are studied for the first time. Expand
Identification and functional characterization of three new terpene synthase genes involved in chemical defense and abiotic stresses in Santalum album
TLDR
The results suggest the ecological importance of these three new SaTPS genes in defensive response to biotic attack and abiotic stresses in S. album, including one chloroplastic mono-TPS and two cytosolic sesqui-TPSs in sandalwood. Expand
Moss is a key nurse plant for reintroduction of the endangered herb, Primulina tabacum Hance
TLDR
This study case suggests that the use of new propagation methods and nurse plants can facilitate the reintroduction of rare and endangered herbs. Expand
