Although somatic embryogenesis has been successfully achieved in numerous plant species, little is known about the mechanism(s) underlying this process. Changes in the balance of growth regulators of the culture medium, osmolarity, or amino acids as well as the genotype and developmental stage of the tissue used as initial explant may have a pivotal influence on the induction of somatic embryogenic cultures. Moreover, different stress agents (ethylene, activated charcoal, cold or heat or… CONTINUE READING
