The present study reports an efficient protocol for indirect shoot organogenesis and plantlets regeneration of Withania somnifera (L.) Dunal. Leaf explants were cultured on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with different concentrations and combinations of 6-benzylaminopurine (BAP) and indole-3-acetic acid (IAA). The highest callus induction rate(More)
High-frequency protocorm-like body (PLB) formation directly from thin leaf sections of Doritaenopsis hybrid was achieved in order to develop a mass-scale propagation system. Concentrated efforts were made to study the effects of different cytokinins on in vitro PLB induction from thin leaf sections. Among the cytokinins tested, thidiazuron (TDZ) was found(More)
Six months old in vitro-grown Anoectochilus formosanus plantlets were transferred to ex-vitro acclimation under low irradiance, LI [60 µmol(photon) m−2 s−1], intermediate irradiance, II [180 µmol(photon) m−2 s−1], and high irradiance, HI [300 µmol(photon) m−2 s−1] for 30 d. Imposition of II led to a significant increase of chlorophyll (Chl) b content, rates(More)
We previously established a system of in vitro regeneration and Agrobacterium-mediated transformation for hot pepper plants. The level of protection against cucumber mosaic virus in the progeny of the transgenic hot pepper plants that express cucumber mosaic virus (CMV) satellite RNA was investigated. The transgenic hot pepper plants were self-fertilized,(More)
