Mitotic chromosome doubling of plant tissues in vitro
In vitro chromosome doubling can be induced by several antimitotic agents. The most commonly used are colchicine, oryzalin and trifluralin. The process of induced chromosome doubling in vitroExpand
Impact of sugar concentration in vitro on photosynthesis and carbon metabolism during ex vitro acclimatization of Spathiphyllum plantlets
Photosynthesis and carbon metabolism were followed during the acclimatization of micropropagated Spathiphyllum cv. Petite shootlets cultured with two different sucrose concentrations (3 and 6%).Expand
Photosynthesis and carbon metabolism in leaves formed prior and during ex vitro acclimatization of micropropagated plants
Abstract During the first days after transplanting micropropagated plants to greenhouse conditions, in vitro leaves are the only source to cover metabolic demands and to sustain plants’ adaptationExpand
Use of 2n Gametes in Plant Breeding
Genome doubling (polyploidization) has played a major role in the evolution and diversification of the plant kingdom and is regarded as an important mechanism of speciation and adaptation in plantsExpand
Occurrence of viable unreduced pollen in a Begonia collection
Polyploidy is widespread in plants and has played a major role in the evolution and diversification of the plant kingdom. Unreduced (2n) gametes are an interesting tool for polyploidisation and theExpand
Construction of a genetic linkage map with SSR, AFLP and morphological markers to locate QTLs controlling pathotype-specific powdery mildew resistance in diploid roses
Disease resistance is a sought-after trait in plant breeding programmes. One strategy to make resistance more durable is to increase the number of resistance genes, thereby increasing the number ofExpand
Progress in plant protoplast research
Abstract In this review we focus on recent progress in protoplast regeneration, symmetric and asymmetric hybridization and novel technology developments. Regeneration of new species and improvedExpand
Application of embryo rescue after interspecific crosses in the genus Rhododendron
Interspecific hybridization between evergreen pot azalea (Tsutsusi) cultivars and genotypes of other Rhododendron subgenera or sections (Rhododendron, Hymenanthes, Pentanthera, Vireya) isExpand
Effect of enzyme concentrations on protoplast isolation and protoplast culture of Spathiphyllum and Anthurium
Vital protoplasts from Spathiphyllum wallisii ‘Alain’ and Anthurium scherzerianum ‘238’ were isolated from both somatic embryos and leaves. The highest yields were obtained when 1.5% cellulase, 0.5%Expand
Influence of ploidy level on morphology, growth and drought susceptibility in Spathiphyllum wallisii
In this study, we analysed morphological, anatomical and physiological effects of polyploidisation in Spathiphyllumwallisii in order to evaluate possible interesting advantages of polyploids forExpand
