In this study, in vitro-cultured plants of Pyrus pyrifolia cv. Fengshui, widely grown in central and southern China, were treated at different temperatures, and the efficiency of virus eradication of regenerated plants was evaluated by ELISA and dot-blot hybridization. Results showed that treatment at a constant high temperature of 37°C influenced greatly on the growth of in vitro pear plants and significantly decreased the plant survival rate, though virus-free plants could be regenerated from… CONTINUE READING
