Efficient plant regeneration was achieved via organogenesis from callus cultures derived from leaf tissue of Echinacea purpurea. Proliferating shoot cultures were obtained by placing leaf explants on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with 6-benzylaminopurine (BAP) and naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA) combinations. MS medium supplemented with BAP (4.44 μM) and NAA (0.054 μM) was the most effective, providing high shoot regeneration frequencies (100%) associated with a high number of… CONTINUE READING
