A rapid and efficient in vitro propagation protocol of Acorus calamus L. - an important endangered medicinal plant has been developed. Naturally grown rhizome segments were used as explants for initial culture. Surface sterilized rhizome segments were cultured on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with various concentrations (0.5 mg l - 3.0 mg l ) of cytokinins (BAP, Kn) and auxins (IAA, IBA, NAA, 2, 4-D) 11 individually as well as in various combinations. Among auxins, highest number… CONTINUE READING
