A protocol is described for rapid and large scale propagation of an endangered, commercially and medicinally important tree species, Sterculia urens, by in vitro culture of cotyledonary nodes from 15 days old seedlings. Of the four different cytokinins (thidiazuron, isopentenyladenine, zeatin and adenine sulphate) evaluated as supplements to Murashige and Skoog medium (1962), thidiazuron at an optimal concentration of 2.27 M was most effective in inducing bud break (83.0%). Although, multiple… Expand

Improved method of in vitro regeneration in Leucaena leucocephala — a leguminous pulpwood tree species
TLDR
Optimization of regeneration system for transgenic Leucaena with altered lignin by genetic engineering demands an optimized regeneration system and multiple shoots were induced from cotyledonary nodes at varied frequencies depending on the type and concentration of cytokinin used in the medium. Expand
In vitro regeneration of Sesbania grandiflora using explants
TLDR
This study reported a successful transfer of regenerated plantlets following micropropagation of S. grandiflora by tissue culture on Murashige Skoog, Woody Plant Medium, and Gamborg medium, and found the basal medium, MS performed better than WPM and B5. Expand
In Vitro Clonal Propagation of a Fast Growing Legume Tree-Acacia mangium Willd. Employing Cotyledonary Node Explants
TLDR
An efficient protocol for in vitro clonal propagation of A. mangium was developed using seedling derived explants and cotyledonary node showed best performance than leaf node and shoot tip explants. Expand
In vitro shoot culture of Rhododendron fortunei: An important plant for bioactive phytochemicals
TLDR
The established methods could be used for rapid propagation of disease-free and genetically uniform liners which can be used to produce feedstocks for extracting bioactive phytochemicals. Expand
EFFICIENT in vitro PROPAGATION OF Amaranthus viridis L. USING NODE EXPLANTS
TLDR
To develop an efficient in vitro regenerated system without hyperdydricity, it is demonstrated the effect of different disinfected agents, growth regulators, their concentrations and combinations, Agar, pH, ammonium nitrate (NH4NO3) and number of subcultures. Expand
Effect of Explant Type and Sequential Subcultures on In Vitro Multiple Shoots Formation of Jojoba
TLDR
It was found that Murashige and Skoog medium supplemented with 6- benzylaminopurine (BA) at 1.25 mg/l could be a promising treatment for the in vitro establishment of all explant types and shoot tips recorded the highest mean number and length of axillary shoots. Expand
Comparative studies of in vitro and in vivo grown plants and callus of Stevia rebaudiana (Bertoni).
TLDR
Plant and callus regenerated from shoot explant on MS+2,4-D+IBA was proved to be a substantial source for stevioside production and in histological analysis vascular tissue development was seen. Expand

Plant regeneration from leaf explants of Rhododendron ‘P.J.M. Hybrids’
TLDR
Pre-culture of leaves on a pre-conditioning medium containing 10 μM indolebutyric acid (IBA) and 50 μM isopentenyladenine (2iP) for 2 weeks before transfer to shoot multiplication medium increased explant survival to greater than 90% as compared with 0–50% when a pre -conditioning treatment was not used.
