The Jatropha curcas is considered as an important energy plant due to the fact that its seed contains high oil content. Nowadays focus is being placed on J. curcas callus induction and plant regeneration. In this study, explants epicotyl, hypocotyl, petiole and cotyledon of 8-day-old seedlings of J. curcas were utilized for callus induction on media supplied with 1 mg/L 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D), naphthyl acetic acid (NAA) or indolebutyric acid (IBA) and 0.1 mg/L kinetin (Kin), and…

In Vitro Callus Induction of Jatropha curcas from Mature Seed in Different Auxins Concentrations

The aim of this study to determine the effect of different concentrations of two types of auxins 2, 4-D (2, 4- dichlorophenoxy acetic acid) and NAA (Naphthalene acetic acid), on callus induction

Evaluation of In Vitro Germination and Callus Induction for Antimicrobial Activities of Jatropha curcas L.

There are many problems related to seed germination and in vitro cultivation of Jatropha curcas L, this research was to solve this obstacle. This study also aimed to use triphenyl tetrazolium

Callus induction, regeneration and molecular characterization of cassava (Manihot esculenta Crantz).

The results demonstrated that leaf explants were superior in callus formation and MS medium supplemented with 15 mg L 2, 4D was the best medium for callus induction and growth development of cassava plant and confirmed that tissue culture technique was providing safety for in vitro propagation of Cassava plant.

Factors influencing direct shoot regeneration from mature leaves of Jatropha curcas, an important biofuel plant

The third to fifth leaves were found to be the best explant source for shoot bud induction, with a high induction rate, large shoot numbers per disk, excellent proliferation, and consistent rooting.

Morphogenesis and regeneration of adventitious shoots in 'Jatropha curcas' L.

It is possible to conclude that regeneration efficiency in Jatropha curcas can be increased with the use of balanced medium constituents, growth regulators and modifications of culture conditions that include the absence of light.

Direct Shoot Organogenesis from Juvenile Cotyledon of Jatropha podagrica Hook

To induce direct shoots from juvenile cotyledon, root induction medium containing half strength MS salts supplemented with either indole 3-butyric acid (IBA) or indole acetic acid (IAA) was used and rooting achieved on the medium supplemented with 9.8 μM IBA.

Germplasm Evaluation, Environmental Impact Assessment and Genetic Improvement Studies in Jatropha curcas

The fact that callus induced from the edges of the explant followed by de novo shoot induction, and strong transient gus expression observed in the edges is significant for routine Agrobacterium-mediated transformation and generation of stable transgenic plants in J. curcas.

Factors affecting in vitro plant regeneration from cotyledonary node explant of Senna sophera (L.) Roxb. - A highly medicinal legume

An efficient in vitro regeneration protocol has been developed for a medicinal legume Senna sophera (L.) Roxb using Cotyledonary Node (CN) explants, where different factors were optimized for maximum multiplication and propagation.

Assessment of Genetic Stability in Three Generations of In Vitro Propagated Jatropha curcas L. Plantlets Using ISSR Markers

The results suggest that the indirect route is associated to higher levels of genetic instability, which also increased with successive subcultures, and the generated genetic variability may be useful for breeding programs.



Efficient plant regeneration from immature embryo cultures of Jatropha curcas, a biodiesel plant

The size of embryo is critical for the establishment of callus and the age of immature embryos and addition of a combination of growth adjuvants to the culture medium appear to be critical for obtaining high regeneration rates.

Shoot regeneration from cotyledonary leaf explants of Jatropha curcas: a biodiesel plant

A simple, high frequency, and reproducible method for plant regeneration through direct organogenesis from cotyledonary leaf explants of Jatropha curcas was developed using Murashige and Skoog (MS)

Plant regeneration of non-toxic Jatropha curcas—impacts of plant growth regulators, source and type of explants

The present investigation explores the effects of different plant growth regulators (PGRs) viz. 6-benzyl aminopurine or thidiazuron individually and in combination with indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) on regeneration from in vitro and field-grown mature leaf explants, in vivo and glasshouse-grown seedlings cotyledonary leafExplants of non-toxic J. curcas.

Morphogenesis and plant regeneration from tissue cultures of Jatropha curcas

Higher regeneration from hypocotyl and petiole explants was obtained on BA with IBA than on zeatin- or kinetin-supplemented media, and direct adventitious shoot bud induction was recorded highest on MS medium.

Plant regeneration through the direct induction of shoot buds from petiole explants of Jatropha curcas: a biofuel plant

Significant differences in plant regeneration and shoot elongation were observed among the genotypes studied, and the orientation (horizontal or vertical) and source (in vitro or in vivo) of explants also significantly influenced plant regeneration.

High-frequency plant regeneration from leaf-disc cultures of Jatropha curcas L.: an important biodiesel plant

A simple, high-frequency and reproducible protocol for induction of adventitious shoot buds and plant regeneration from leaf-disc cultures of Jatropha curcas L. has been developed and might find use in mass production of true-to-type plants and in production of transgenic plants through Agrobacterium/biolistic-mediated transformation.

In vitro epicotyl explants from Jatropha curcas were cultured on MS medium with indole-3-butyric acid and 6-benzyladenine and regenerated plants with well developed shoots and roots were successfully transferred to greenhouse, without visible detectable variation.

Tissue Culture and Plant Regeneration of Jatropha curcas (Euphorbiaceae)

Plumules, cotyledons, hypocotyls, leaf blades, petioles and stalks of physic nut were used as explants, and callus induction and plant regeneration were studied on MS medium contained different concentrations of 6-BA and NAA, showing that the MS medium with 5.0 mg/L BA and 1.0mg/L NAA was the best forcallus induction.
