In order to evaluate effects of γ-rays on adventitious root formation and ginsenoside production, embryogenic calli induced from cotyledon explants of Panax ginseng C.A. Meyer were treated with γ-rays of 0, 10, 30, 50, 70, and 100 Gy. The highest frequency of adventitious root formation of 75 % occurred at γ-irradiation of 30 Gy, which is considered adequate dosage for selecting mutant cell lines. Five mutated adventitious roots (MAR)3-lines out of the propagation of 142 adventitious root lines… CONTINUE READING
