Development of a cyclic somatic embryogenesis regeneration system for leek (Allium ampeloprasum L.) using zygotic embryos

Abstract

In leek (Allium ampeloprasum L.) a cyclic system of somatic embryogenesis was developed. Somatic embryos used for cyclic embryogenesis were able to develop the same type of embryogenic callus as zygotic embryos in the primary cycle. For the first time a comparison of the efficiencies of both expiants was made. Ten families were investigated for somatic… (More)
