The development of stem callus mediated plant regeneration system for Withania somnifera is described. Maximum callus proliferation was obtained on Murashige and Skoog medium supplemented with 2.26 μM 2,4-D. Three-week-old, white, friable callus was used for shoot regeneration. The maximum shoot regeneration (6.2 ± 0.34 shoots/explant) was achieved in four(More)
Clerodane glycosides and flavonoids in Dicranopteris pedata and three varieties of D. linearis were investigated. All the ferns contained a new glycoside, (6S,13S)-6-[6-O-acetyl-beta-D-glucopyranosyl-(1-->4)-alpha-L-rhamnopy - ranosyloxy]-13-[alpha-L-rhamnopyranosyl-(1-->4)-beta-D-fucopyra nosyloxy]- cleroda-3,14-diene, as a chemical marker of this group.(More)
Micropropagation of B. montanum was achieved on Murashige and Skoog's (MS) medium augmented with BAP using nodal segments. Maximum number of shoots (3.4 +/- 0.25) were found in MS medium fortified with BAP (3.10 microM). In vitro raised shoots were rooted on half strength MS medium augmented with various concentrations and combination of auxins viz.. IAA,(More)
