Mitotic chromosome doubling of plant tissues in vitro
TLDR
This review gives an overview of the common methods of chromosome doubling in vitro, the history of the technique, and progress made over the years.
Impact of sugar concentration in vitro on photosynthesis and carbon metabolism during ex vitro acclimatization of Spathiphyllum plantlets
TLDR
Increased sugar supply resulted in inhibition of photosynthesis, nonfunctional photosynthetic reaction centers, a more mixotrophic metabolism and higher starch and sucrose reserves at the end of the in vitro period.
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 plants
Progress in plant protoplast research
TLDR
The study of reactive oxygen species effects and DNA (de)condensation, along with thorough phytohormone monitoring, are in this review the most promising research topics in the further strive for rationalization of protoplast regeneration.
Effect of enzyme concentrations on protoplast isolation and protoplast culture of Spathiphyllum and Anthurium
TLDR
Vital protoplasts from Spathiphyllum wallisii ‘Alain’ and Anthurium scherzerianum ‘238’ were isolated from both somatic embryos and leaves and development until colony stage was achieved using agarose beads for protoplast culture.
Application of embryo rescue after interspecific crosses in the genus Rhododendron
TLDR
The objective of this work was to overcome spontaneous abortion and lack of endosperm formation and to increase germination rates by establishing an embryo rescue protocol and the optimal germination medium for immature Rhododendron seeds was a basal medium supplemented with 145 μM GA3.
Occurrence of viable unreduced pollen in a Begonia collection
TLDR
Flow cytometric data proved that large pollen were observed with a rather spherical than normal ellipsoidal shape and were associated with 2n ploidy levels, although they were not always viable.
Construction of a genetic linkage map with SSR, AFLP and morphological markers to locate QTLs controlling pathotype-specific powdery mildew resistance in diploid roses
TLDR
The results of this study aim to contribute to PM resistance in roses by the development of pathotype-specific markers on a genetic map and will be useful for future rose breeding, pathotypes-specific resistance research and development of a consensus map for roses.
Genetic relationships among Hibiscus syriacus, Hibiscus sinosyriacus and Hibiscus paramutabilis revealed by AFLP, morphology and ploidy analysis
The genetic relationships between and within Hibiscus syriacus, Hibiscus sinosyriacus and Hibiscus paramutabilis, three winter hardy Hibiscus species native to China, were analysed by the amplified
