Cytokinin-induced somatic embryogenesis and plant regeneration in Corydalis yanhusuo (Fumariaceae) - a medicinal plant.

An efficient method has been developed for regeneration of complete plants via somatic embryogenesis in Corydalis yanhusuo (Fumariaceae), an important medicinal plant, using tuber-derived callus. Primary callus was induced by culturing mature tuber pieces on Murashige and Skoog's (MS) medium supplemented with 2.0 mg l(-1) N(6)-benzyladenine (BA) and 0.5 mg… (More)
