This study was carried out to optimize a modified droplet-vitrification procedure for the cryopreservation of shoot tips from different carnation genotypes. The best procedure was developed by applying orthogonal tests to the experimental data and by further investigation of the effects on the regrowth percentage. It consisted in preculturing shoot tips in(More)
Quantifying seed viability is required for seed bank maintenance. The classical methods for detecting seed viability are time consuming and frequently cause seed damage and unwanted germination. We have established a novel micro-optrode technique (MOT) to measure seed viability in a quick and non-invasive manner by measuring the oxygen influxes of intact(More)
The critical node (CN) in seed aging in rice (Oryza sativa) is the transformation from Phase I (P-I) to Phase II (P-II) of the reverse S-shaped curve (RS-SC). Although mitochondrial dysfunction plays a key role in seed ageing, the metabolic shift in the CN remains poorly understood. Here, we investigated the mitochondrial regulatory mechanisms during the CN(More)
Jerusalem artichoke (Helianthus tuberosus L.) cultivars are conserved in genebanks for use in breeding and horticultural research programs. Jerusalem artichoke collections are particularly vulnerable to environmental and biological threats because they are often maintained in the field. These field collections could be securely conserved in genebanks if(More)
