Three pumpkin embryogenic lines were initiated on wounded zygotic embryos cultured on medium with or without 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D). Somatic embryo development was controlled by the availability of various compounds in the medium: presence/absence of 2,4-D, nitrogen sources. The highest rate of DNA methylation was in the early embryo stages, predominantly on MSC medium with 2,4-D and on auxin-free medium supplemented with 1.0 mM NH4Cl. DNA methylation was correlated with early… CONTINUE READING
