In vitro propagation of Caralluma tuberculata (Chungah) was developed from shoot tip and meristem explants. C. tuberculata is an imperative medicinal plant comprising antidiabetic and anticancer properties. The explants were inoculated on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium containing different plant growth regulators. Presence of BA or Kin alone in the MS medium did not favor regeneration of shoot from both explants. However, addition of 2,4-dichlorophenoxy acetic acid (2,4D), gibberellic acid… CONTINUE READING
