Direct differentiation of shoot buds in Coffea dewevrei was evident from the seedling shoots with collar region and also from collar region end of hypocotyl segments in presence of 40 μM AgNO3, 8.88 μM of BA and 2.85 μM of IAA. Apart from this, shoot end of hypocotyl explants mainly supported yellow friable callus or somatic embryos. Subsequent transfer to(More)
Cafestol and kahweol are the two anti-nutritional diterpenes unique to coffee. They are associated with lipids of the coffee and are reported to be responsible for hypercholesterolemic effect in humans. In the present study, diterpene profiles in beans of ripened Robusta coffee (Coffea canephora) fruits collected from trees grown at different altitudes were(More)
Cafestol (caf) and kahweol (kah) are two diterpenes uniquely associated with the unsaponified lipid fraction of coffee brew and are reported to be responsible for an increase in serum cholesterol and triglyceride levels. The plant growth regulators (PGRs) indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), N 6-benzyladenine (BA), and thidiazuron (TDZ); the plant growth-promoting(More)
Caffeine biosynthesis involves sequential methylation of the purine ring by the transfer of methyl group from the methyl donor S-adenosyl methionine. Genes that code for the individual methyl transferase have a high degree of sequence homology. To achieve decaffeination by genetic engineering of coffee, the effect and efficiency of different(More)
