  journal={Plant Cell, Tissue and Organ Culture},
Elite trees of Commiphora wightii (Arnott) Bhandari were selected from the wild on the basis of their content of guggul, an oleoresin. The selected tree was micropropagated through forced axillary branching on Murashige and Skoog's (MS) medium supplemented with benzyladenine (BA) and kinetin. Highest frequency of shoot formation was achieved on MS medium supplemented with 17.8 μM BA, 18.6 μM kinetin, 100 mg l-1 glutamine, 10 mg l-1 thiamine HCL and 0.3% activated charcoal.
