Initiation of embryogenesis from cultured barley microspores: a further investigation into the toxic effects of sucrose and glucose

The toxic effects of sucrose and glucose upon Hordeum vulgare L. ev Igri microspore cultures were investigated. It was concluded from this study that: -microspores could be cultured in the presence of low concentrations of glucose without any deleterious effects upon cell viability, but the microspores did not form embryos or calluses. -microspores died… CONTINUE READING
