In vitro propagation of an endangered medicinal plant Saussurea involucrata Kar. et Kir.

Abstract

An efficient micropropagation system for Saussurea involucrata Kar. et Kir., an endangered Chinese medicinal plant, has been developed. Shoot organogenesis occurred from S. involucrata leaf explants inoculated on medium with appropriate supplements of plant growth regulators. 66.0% of shoot regeneration frequency and 5.2 shoots per leaf explant were… (More)
