Withanolide synthesis in cultures of Withania somnifera transformed with Agrobacterium tumefaciens
Abstract Transformed organ cultures of Withania somnifera were established following infection with wild type nopaline and octopine strains of Agrobacterium tumefaciens. The oncogenic strains hadExpand

Somatic embryogenesis from immature cotyledons of an elite Darjeeling tea clone
Abstract Cotyledons from immature embryos of Camellia sinensis O. Kuntze var. T-78, an elite Darjeeling tea clone, were exposed to various levels of 2,4-D, NAA, IBA, BAP and Kin (1–10 mg/1). While noExpand

Spontaneous plant regeneration in transformed roots and calli from Tylophora indica: changes in morphological phenotype and tylophorine accumulation associated with transformation by Agrobacterium
We examined the effects of genetic transformation by Agrobacterium rhizogenes on the production of tylophorine, a phenanthroindolizidine alkaloid, in the Indian medicinal plant, Tylophora indica.Expand
