Peroxidase activity of desiccation-tolerant loblolly pine somatic embryos

Desiccation tolerance can be induced by culturing somatic embryos of loblolly pine (Pinus taeda L.) on medium supplemented with 50 μM abscisic acid (ABA) and/or 8.5% polyethylene glycol (PEG6000). Scanning electron microscopy of desiccated somatic embryos showed that the size and external morphology of the desiccation-tolerant somatic embryos recovered to the pre-desiccation state within 24–36 h, whereas the non-desiccation-tolerant somatic embryos did not recover and remained shriveled, after… CONTINUE READING
