Nitric oxide (NO) plays diverse roles in the growth and development of plants. The effects of a NO donor, sodium nitroprusside (SNP), on shoot multiplication and regeneration of Vanilla planifolia Andrews have been studied. Nodal segments of V. planifolia were used as explants to initiate shoots. The number of shoots per explant showed a significant increase in the presence of SNP and more than 93% of explants formed shoots. Supplementation of 10.0 μM SNP to Murashige and Skoog (MS) basal… CONTINUE READING
