  • Callus from four clones of Chrysanthemum cinerariaefolium have been investigated for pyrethrins biosynthesis. Calli from disc-flowers, bud-flowers, stems and leaves of clone HY D were cultivated. Best growth was obtained by initiating the culture on Murashige and Skoog medium containing 3% sucrose, 1% agar, 4 ppm β-naphtoxy acetic acid (ANA) and 0.4 ppm 6- benzyl aminopurine (BAP) for 28 d, then transfering explants on \({\raise0.7ex\hbox{$1$} \!\mathord{\left/ {\vphantom {1 2}}\right.\kern… CONTINUE READING
