This review highlights the recent and past work on uses of various abiotic stresses and pretreatments and their impact on enhancing the efficiency of androgenesis on some major crop species for the development of doubled haploid plants. Expand
Effect of cold pretreatment and different media in improving anther culture response in rice (Oryza sativa L.) in Bangladesh
Cold pretreated anthers influenced the embryoid formation in five different induction media where hormonal combination was modified, and 5-d (T3) cold pretreatment was found to be the most effective compared to other treatments on SK3 medium. Expand
Assessment and Improvement of Wheat Microspore derived Embryo Induction and Regeneration
An efficient protocol for the production of embryos in isolated wheat microspore culture is presented and the ability of embryos to regenerate green plants (embryo quality) to be strongly determined by embryo age and size is found. Expand
Rice heterotrimeric G-protein gamma subunits (RGG1 and RGG2) are differentially regulated under abiotic stress
The isolation of full-length cDNAs of two isoforms of Gγ from rice and described their transcript regulation in response to abiotic stresses suggest the possible exploitation of γ subunits of G-protein machinery for promoting stress tolerance in plants. Expand
Effect of Silver Nitrate and Amino Acids on High Frequency Plants Regeneration in Barley (Hordeum vulgare L.)
Three Bangladeshi barley genotypes viz. BARI barley‐1, 3 and 6 were selected for this study to evaluate the efficiency of callus induction and plant regeneration. The effect of five doses of AgNO 3Expand
Effect of Embryoids Age, Size and Shape for Improvement of Regeneration Efficiency from Microspore-derived Embryos in Wheat (Triticum aestivum L.)
The present investigation demonstrated that transfer of embryos to semi-solid regeneration medium at an early age, e.g. three - five weeks, showed significant and effective results for the production of regenerated green plants in comparison to prolonged age (six - eight weeks). Expand
Effect of light and dark on callus induction and regeneration in tobacco (Nicotiana tabacum L.)
Among the explants earliest callusing initiated at 5th day from nodal segment and the highest amount of callus was recorded from leaf blade of Motihari variety in light condition, and the calli developed in dark showed watery, glossy silver color and less embryogenic features. Expand
Efficient microtuber production of potato in modified nutrient spray bioreactor system
Abstract A laboratory scale bioreactor system has been developed using nutrient spray technology for in vitro mass production of potato microtubers. Its effectiveness on the production of microtubersExpand
Development of an efficient protocol for in vitro germination and enhancing protocorm-like body development in three indigenous orchid species in Bangladesh
It is concluded that in vitro seed germination is technique with the highest potential for protocorm formation, multiplication and conservation of indigenous orchids. Expand
Pea p68 Imparts Salinity Stress Tolerance in Rice by Scavenging of ROS-Mediated H2O2 and Interacts with Argonaute
The isolation and characterization of salinity-induced pea p68 showed enhanced tolerance to salinity stress by efficiently attenuating ionic adjustment and scavenging reactive oxygen species (ROS) and overall, Psp68 may serve as a useful biotechnological tool for the improvement of stress tolerance crops.
