Commercial peppermint (P) (Mentha × piperita L. ev. Black Mitcham), native spearmint (NS) (M. spicata L.) and Scotch spearmint (SS) (M. × gracillis Sole cv Baker) petioles and orange mint (OM) (M. citrata Ehrh.) leaf disks were cocultivated with a number of Agrobacterium tumefaciens strains. P, SS and OM initiated tumor-like callus tissue on growth regulator-free MS medium after cocultivation with strain A281, a hypervirulent agropine strain containing Ti plasmid pTiBo542. Callus did not… CONTINUE READING
