Regeneration of eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) from root explants

  author={Giovanni Franklin and Caroline J. Sheeba and G. Lakshmi Sita},
  journal={In Vitro Cellular & Developmental Biology - Plant},
Eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) was efficiently regenerated from cultured roots of 15-d-old seedlings on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium containing 0.45 μM thidiazuron and 13.3 μM 6-benzyladenine. Within 28d of culture initiation, induction of organogenic calluses and subsequent differentiation into shoot buds were observed. Shoot buds upon subculture to MS basal medium elongated into healthy shoots. Excised shoots (2–4 cm) were rooted on Soilrite® irrigated with water either in vitro or in… CONTINUE READING
