Factors affecting high-frequency embryo formation inab initio pollen cultures ofNicotiana


Consistent high-frequency embryo formation, up to 30% of the cultured pollen, was possible when embryogenic pollen were selectively isolated from the gametophytic pollen on centrifugation, at 12–15 °C, in Percoll diluted by a low level of sucrose (4%). Higher level of sucrose in separation medium was inhibitory for embryogenesis. The embryogenic pollen were… (More)
