Moderate desiccation dramatically improves shoot regeneration from maize (Zea mays L.) callus

Abstract

Tissue and cell culture systems are vital to many areas of maize research and improvement. Efficient shoot regeneration remains a limiting factor for most elite lines. To enhance shoot regeneration, calluses derived from immature embryos of four genotypes were subjected to 6, 12, 24, 48, and 72 h of desiccation on sterile filter paper before shoot induction… (More)
