Cadmium accumulation and its influence on lipid peroxidation and antioxidative system in an aquatic plant, Bacopa monnieri L.
Bacopa monnieri L. plants exposed to 10, 50, 100 and 200 microM cadmium (Cd) for 48, 96 and 144 h were analysed with reference to the accumulation of metal and its influence on various enzymatic andExpand

Organogenesis and embryogenesis from diverse explants in pigeonpea (Cajanus cajan L.)
Seed and seedling expiants of pigeonpea were evaluated for organogenesis and somatic embryogenesis. De novo plant regeneration through organogenesis was obtained from mature cotyledons, primaryExpand

Prospects of genetic engineering of plants for phytoremediation of toxic metals.
Bioremediation is gaining a lot of importance in recent times as an alternate technology for removal of elemental pollutants in soil and water, which require effective methods of decontamination.Expand

Advances in development of transgenic plants for remediation of xenobiotic pollutants.
Phytoremediation-the use of plants for cleaning up of xenobiotic compounds-has received much attention in the last few years and development of transgenic plants tailored for remediation will furtherExpand

Influence of phytohormones, carbohydrates, aminoacids, growth supplements and antibiotics on somatic embryogenesis and plant differentiation in finger millet
Cultured caryopses of finger millet (Eleusine coracana GAERTN) produced callus from shoot apices or mesocotyls depending upon the concentration of picloram and combination of cytokinins in MS basalExpand

Plant regeneration from leaf base callus of turmeric and random amplified polymorphic DNA analysis of regenerated plants
Callus cultures were initiated from leaf bases of turmeric on Murashige and Skoog's basal medium (MS) supplemented with dicamba, picloram (2 mg l−1) or 1-naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA) (5 mg l−1) inExpand

Micropropagation and field evaluation of micropropagated plants of turmeric
A protocol was developed for in vitro propagation of turmeric cv `elite' using young vegetative buds from sprouting rhizomes. The shoot buds produced multiple shoots when cultured on MS solid mediumExpand

Potential for rhizofiltration of uranium using hairy root cultures of Brassica juncea and Chenopodium amaranticolor.
Hairy root cultures of Brassica juncea and Chenopodium amaranticolor were developed by genetic transformation using Agrobacterium rhizogenes. The stable, transformed root systems demonstrated a highExpand
