Callus was obtained from hypocotyls of Mesembryanthemum crystallinum seedlings cultured on two types of medium-germination medium (GM) and callus induction medium (CIM). Following subculture on shoot induction medium SIM1, the callus formed on CIM medium regenerated roots or somatic embryos, while that obtained on GM medium was non-regenerative. The(More)
A comparison of the hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) content, proline and betacyanin concentration and activities of some antioxidant enzymes (catalase, superoxide dismutase, guaiacol and ascorbate peroxidases) was made in Mesembryanthemum crystallinum L. calli differing in rhizogenic potential. Callus was induced from hypocotyls of 10-day-old seedlings on a medium(More)
Stable transformation of Mesembryanthemum crystallinum L. (common ice plant) with a green fluorescent protein (GFP) construct targeted to the endoplasmic reticulum was obtained. Seven and fourteen days after germination seedlings were infected with Agrobacterium rhizogenes strain ARqua1 either by direct coating of the cut radicles with bacteria growing on(More)
Microscopy and flow cytometry (FCM) were used to study somatic embryogenesis (SE) from zygotic embryos of Trifolium nigrescens Viv. to determine if there were any relationships between characteristics of somatic embryos (morphology, anatomy, genome size stability) and their regenerability. Embryoids were induced on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium containing(More)
This work demonstrated how reactive oxygen species (ROS) are involved in the regulation of rhizogenesis from hypocotyls of Mesembryanthemum crystallinum L. cultured on a medium containing 1-naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA). The increase of NADPH oxidase activity was correlated with an increase of hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) content and induction of mitotic(More)
The formation of an extracellular matrix surface network (ECMSN), and associated changes in the distribution of arabinogalactan-protein and pectin epitopes, have been studied during somatic embryogenesis (SE) and callogenesis of Trifolium nigrescens Viv. Scanning electron microscopy observations revealed the occurrence of an ECMSN on the surface of(More)
The distribution of several arabinogalactan protein and pectic epitopes were studied during organogenesis in androgenic callus of wheat. In cell wall of mature and degenerating parenchyma cells, the arabinogalactan epitopes JIM4, JIM14, JIM16 or LM2 were expressed differently according to the cells location. LM2 was observed also in meristematic cells of(More)
H 2 O 2 is necessary to elicit rhizogenic action of auxin. Activities of specific catalase and manganese superoxide dismutase forms mark roots development. Hypocotyl explants of Mesembryanthemum crystallinum regenerated roots on medium containing 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid. Explants became competent to respond to the rhizogenic action of auxin on day 3(More)
The aim of this study was to identify and examine the expression pattern of the ortholog of SOMATIC EMBRYOGENESIS RECEPTOR-LIKE KINASE gene from Trifolium nigrescens (TnSERK) in embryogenic and non-regenerative cultures of immature cotyledonary-stage zygotic embryos (CsZEs). In the presence of 1-naphthaleneacetic acid and N6-[2-isopentenyl]-adenine, the(More)
