Morphological and Histochemical Characterization of Callus from Leaf Explant of Tagetes lucida Cav. (Asteraceae)
This is the first attempt to characterized callus of Tagetes lucida that has been successfully induced using leaf as explant and MS with NAA (3ppm) and KI (0.5ppm) as culture medium. MorphologicalExpand
Interactive effects of supplemental ultraviolet-B radiation and indole-3-acetic acid on Coleus forskohlii Briq.: Alterations in morphological-, physiological-, and biochemical characteristics and essential oil content.
TLDR
IAA application led to a reversal in the effects caused by s-UV-B radiation alone; both the plant growth as well as the essential oil content improved, especially at the higher IAA dose, suggesting its ameliorative role against UV-B induced oxidative stress, and also in improving the plant's medicinal value. Expand
Exogenous application of IAA alleviates effects of supplemental ultraviolet-B radiation in the medicinal plant Withania somnifera Dunal.
TLDR
Application of different IAA doses reversed the detrimental effects of s-UV-B on W. somnifera by improving growth and photosynthesis and reducing concentrations of secondary metabolites and non-enzymatic antioxidants. Expand
In vitro organogenesis and estimation of β-sitosterol in Dendrobium fimbriatum Hook.: An orchid of biopharmaceutical importance
TLDR
The reported regeneration protocol is comprehensive and fast with a subsequent increment in the β-sitosterol levels within the micropropagated plants, which can be adopted for conserving the various medicinally important orchid taxa. Expand
Bioactivity of Phytosterols and Their Production in Plant in Vitro Cultures.
TLDR
New methodologies based on the use of recombinant DNA technology to increase the levels of phytosterols are described, which are able to reduce plasma cholesterol levels and have antiinflammatory, antidiabetic, and anticancer activities. Expand
QUALITATIVE AND QUANTITATIVE ESTIMATION OF β-SITOSTEROL FROM IN VITRO REGENERATED STEM BARK AND CALLUS OF HELICTERES ISORA L.
Objective: Qualitative and quantitative determination of β–sitosterol from nature grown and in vitro regenerated plantlets of Helicteres isora L. was carried out to assess the presence and relativeExpand
A review on phytochemical and pharmacological aspects of Cissus quadrangularis L.
TLDR

Production of centellosides and phytosterols in cell suspension cultures of Centella asiatica
TLDR
Centella asiatica cell suspensions were established and treated with two concentrations of methyl jasmonate (MeJA), finding that MeJa elicitation in this type of culture was dose-dependent and its inducing role was apparent at low concentrations. Expand
Callus Induction and Plant Regeneration from Different Explants of Actinidia deliciosa
TLDR
The best callus for plant regeneration was obtained from leaf explants on Murashige and Skoog’s medium (MS) supplemented with M2, and the best shoots formation was obtained in medium with 4.0 mg l−1 BA. Expand
Effects of explant type, culture media and growth regulators on callus induction and plant regeneration of Chinese jiaotou (Allium chinense).
TLDR
An efficient protocol of shoot regeneration from callus, effects of explant type, culture media and plant growth regulators on callus induction and shoot regeneration of Chinese jiaotou were evaluated and provides a basis for future studies on genetic improvement. Expand
Petroleum Ether Extract of Cissus Quadrangularis (Linn.) Enhances Bone Marrow Mesenchymal Stem Cell Proliferation and Facilitates Osteoblastogenesis
TLDR
The results suggest that Cissus quadrangularis stimulates osteoblastogenesis and can be used as preventive/ alternative natural medicine for bone diseases such as osteoporosis. Expand
Regeneration of Stevia Plant Through Callus Culture
TLDR
The developed protocol can be utilized for mass production of true to type planting material on large scale independent of season, i.e. external environmental conditions. Expand
A taxonomic investigation of variation withinCissus quadrangularis L. (Vitaceae) in Kenya
TLDR
