An in vitro regeneration protocol was developed for Capsicum chinense Jacq. cv. Naga King Chili, a very pungent chili cultivar and an important horticultural crop of Nagaland (Northeast India). Maximum number of shoot (13 ± 0.70) was induced with bud-forming capacity (BFC) index of 10.8, by culturing nodal segments in Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium(More)
An efficient regeneration protocol for the medicinal plant, Paris polyphylla Sm. was developed through the formation of mini-rhizomes (MRs) using transverse thin cell layer (tTCL) culture technique. MRs were induced from tTCL explants derived from the basal and middle stem portions while apical portion failed to show any kind of response. Highest response(More)
Capsicum species commonly known as Chili peppers are economically important group of plants belonging to the Solanaceae family. Of the 38 species reported, only six species namely, Capsicum annuum, C. assamicum, C. baccatum, C. frutescence, C. chinense and C. pubescens are cultivated. They are very important component of the human being as peppers are used(More)
The resistance to Diamondback moth insect in cabbage is governed by many minor loci in quantitative nature, and at least four genetic loci should be incorporated in marker-assisted breeding program for developing partially resistant DBM cabbage cultivars. The Diamondback moth (DBM), Plutella xylostella (L.), is the most destructive insect infesting(More)
The influence of osmotic stress on capsaicin production was investigated in cell suspension cultures of Capsicum chinense Jacq.cv. Naga King Chili, a chili species native to Northeastern India. The sterilized seeds were germinated in Murashige and Skoog medium. Two-week-old hypocotyls were excised from in vitro germinated seedlings and implanted in MS(More)
Sequences of the Internal Transcribed Spacer (ITS1-5.8S-ITS2) of nuclear ribosomal DNAs were explored to study the genetic diversity and molecular evolution of Naga King Chili. Our study indicated the occurrence of nucleotide polymorphism and haplotypic diversity in the ITS regions. The present study demonstrated that the variability of ITS1 with respect to(More)
One of the main characteristics of chili pepper fruit is its pungent taste due to the presence of a group of compounds known as capsaicinoids. Capsaicinoids biosynthesis in chili plant is defined by two pathways: phenylpropanoid, which determines phenolic structure; and fatty acid metabolism, which determines the molecule’s fatty acids. The potency of chili(More)
