Meristem culture and virus eradication in Alstroemeria

  title={Meristem culture and virus eradication in Alstroemeria},
  author={Alessandro Chiari and Mark P. Bridgen},
  journal={Plant Cell, Tissue and Organ Culture},
Stem apical meristems, rhizome apical meristems and rhizome axillary meristems excised from Alstroemeria plants were grown in vitro on modified Murashige and Skoog (MS) media containing different concentrations of gibberellic acid and 6-benzylaminopurine (BA). Plantlets developed from stem apical meristems never regenerated a rhizome and eventually died. The highest regeneration rate (74.1%) of plantlets with a rhizome was observed when rhizome axillary meristems were grown on modified MS… CONTINUE READING
