Leaf, stem, hypocotyl, cotyledon, root, shoot tip and embryo explants of Capsicum annuum L. cv. mathania were cultured on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with 6-benzylaminopurine (BAP) or kinetin (Kin) alone or in combination with 3-indoleacetic acid (IAA), 3-indolebutyric acid (IBA), α-naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA) or 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic(More)
Growth and morphogenesis of plant tissues under in vitro conditions are largely influenced by the composition of the culture media. In this study, effects of different inorganic nutrients (ZnSO4 and CuSO4) on callus induction and plant regeneration of Eleusine coracana in vitro were examined. Primary callus induction without ZnSO4 resulted in improved shoot(More)
 A highly efficient three-stage protocol for the regeneration of chilli pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) from cotyledon explants was developed. This protocol used PAA in both the shoot-bud induction medium and the medium for elongation of the shoot buds. A superior medium for the induction of buds from the cotyledons was MS medium supplemented with BA (5 or 7(More)
Agrobacterium-mediated transformation protocol has been developed for Eleusine coracana (var. PR-202) by varying several factors which influence T-DNA delivery. Green nodular regenerative calli with meristematic nodules of seed origin were used as the target tissue for Agrobacteriumtumefaciens-mediated gene transfer. The highest frequency of transformation(More)
Exposure to environmental tobacco smoke (ETS) leads to higher rates of pulmonary diseases and infections in children. To study the biochemical changes that may precede lung diseases, metabolomic effects on fetal and maternal lungs and plasma from rats exposed to ETS were compared to filtered air control animals. Genome- reconstructed metabolic pathways may(More)
Basal medium constituents and their concentration play an important role in growth and morphogenesis of plant tissues cultured in vitro. In this study effect of different inorganic nutrients (CoCl2, MnSO4, ZnSO4, CuSO4 and AgNO3) on callus induction and plant regeneration in Paspalum scrobiculatum and Eleusine coracana was examined. A 5× and 3× increase in(More)
Whole immature inflorescences at 4 different developmental stages (0.5, 1.0, 1.5, 2.0 cm in size) of different genotypes of Triticum aestivum and T. durum were cultured to see the morphogenetic responses on Murashige and Skoog's (MS) medium supplemented with 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) (2.5 mg/l). Very young inflorescences 0.5 and 1.0cm long(More)
Microprojectile bombardment mediated genetic transformation parameters have been standardized for seed derived callus of Eleusine coracana. Plasmid pCAMBIA 1381 harboring hygromycin phosphotransferase (hptII) as selectable marker gene and β-glucuronidase (gus A) as reporter gene, was used for the optimization of gene transfer conditions. The transient GUS(More)
Leaf explants of Jatropha curcas cultured on Murashige and Skoog’s (MS) medium supplemented with thidiazuron (TDZ; 0.90 μM) in combination with indole-3-butyric acid (IBA; 0.98μM) produced adventitious shoot buds directly on the surface of the explants without formation of intervening callus while shoot bud formation was accompanied with callus formation on(More)
Immature inflorescences of kodo millet (Paspalum scrobiculatum L. cv. GPUK-3) were cultured on MS medium. Induction of embryogenic callus and subsequent somatic embryogenesis was possible on both 2,4-D and Picloram alone or with kinetin from spikelets as well as rachis. Immature inflorescence cultured on medium supplemented with lower levels of Picloram in(More)
