The objective of the current investigation was to develop a reliable method to obtain vesicular arbuscular mycorrhizae (VAM) in micropropagated plantlets and to determine their influence on growth. An in vitro system for culturing the VA mycorrhizal fungus Glomus intraradices with Ri T-DNA-transformed carrot roots or nontransformed tomato roots was used in this study as a potential active source of inoculum for the colonization of micropropagated plantlets. After root induction, micropropagated… CONTINUE READING
