SummaryA procedure for the regeneration of cacao (Theobroma cacao) plants from staminode explants via somatic embryogenesis was developed. [...] Key Method Rapidly growing calli were induced by culturing staminode explants on a DKW salts-based primary callus growth (PCG) medium supplemented with 20 g glucose per L, 9 μM 2,4-D, and thidiazuron (TDZ) at various concentrations.Expand

Regeneration through somatic embryogenesis of an elite colombian Theobroma cacao L. variety
TLDR
This is the first report where it is achieved the successful conversion to plantlets (68%) and ex vitro adaptation of a colombian cocoa variety via primary and secondary embryogenesis. Expand
Indirect somatic embryogenesis of Theobroma cacao L. in liquid medium and improvement of embryo-to-plantlet conversion rate
TLDR
Two paths for improving the plantlet regenerative capacities of cocoa SE produced in liquid medium were identified and they were identified by exploiting the growth kinetics of the cultures during the multiplication and the expression steps. Expand
EFFECTIVE CACAO SOMATIC EMBRYO REGENERATION ON KINETIN SUPPLEMENTED DKW MEDIUM AND SOMACLONAL VARIATION ASSESSMENT USING SSRs MARKERS
This study aimed to develop the cacao ( Theobroma cacao L.) in vitro regeneration system through somatic embryogenesis on kinetin supplemented DKW medium and somaclonal variation assessment using SSRExpand
Induction of Somatic Embryogenesis from Cocoa Farmer Field Collection of ICT - Peru
TLDR
A clear organogenic response was observed when roots were formed from the callus generated and the genotypes ICT-2161 and I CT-2142 shows the highest percentage of somatic embryogenesis. Expand
Induction of somatic embryos of recalcitrant genotypes of Theobroma cacao L.
TLDR
The use of higher 18 μM concentrations of 2, 4, 5-trichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4,5-T) could be used to overcome  recalcitrance to somatic embryogenesis in cocoa and its application to other recalcitrant genotypes could confirm its beneficial effect on the removal of recal citrance. Expand
Somatic Embryogenesis for Clonal Propagation and Associated Molecular Studies in Cacao (Theobroma cacao L.)
TLDR
Current knowledge of how far in vitro plant regeneration systems in cacao have developed is summarized to help researchers and scientists to improve protocols to a wider range of genotypes as well as collecting, conserving, and breeding cacao to increase productivity. Expand
The Effect of Picloram Concentrations and Explants Types on the Induction of Somatic Embryo on North Aceh Cocoa Genotype
TLDR
The objective of this work was to evaluate a procedure for somatic embryogenesis of cacao ( Theobroma cacao L.) Aceh clones using floral tissue explants (petal, staminode, and anther) on North Aceh cacao genotype. Expand
Somatic embryogenesis and plant regeneration from bulb, leaf and root explants of African blue lily (Agapanthus praecox ssp. minimus)
TLDR
Scanning electron microscopic studies on leaf tissues showed no morphological variations between the in vivo and in vitro grown plants, hence mass propagation through tissue culture for true-to-type production of this species is feasible. Expand
Use of mineral salts to remove recalcitrance to somatic embryogenesis of improved genotypes of cacao (Theobrama cacao L.)
TLDR
The transfer of the callogenic explants on the developmental medium allowed the induction of embryogenic calli and somatic embryos after 84 days only with petal explants, which are the concentrations of the most suitable mineral salts to overcome recalcitrance of cocoa genotypes. Expand
Influence of the position of flowers buds on the tree on somatic embryogenesis of cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.)
TLDR
Biochemical analysis shows that the content of phenol is low in calluses during somatic embryo establishment, and Buds from fan branch are suitable for somatic embryogenesis process and this capacity correlate with peroxidase activity which decrease during embryos dedifferentiation phase. Expand

TLDR
A protocol for high-frequency somatic embryogenesis in Cucumis melo L. was developed using 'Male Sterile A147 as a model cultivar and the optimal treatments were tested with 51 other commercial varieties. Expand
Initiation and Development of Asexual Embryos of Theobroma cacao L. in vitro
TLDR
Microscopic examination revealed two distinct patterns of asexual embryo initiation: 1) a «budding» process in which embryos arose from glandular hair-like structures; and 2) a 'nonbudding' process with differentiation from internal cotyledonary meristematic tissues. Expand
Somatic embryogenesis and plant regeneration from cotyledons of walnut, Juglans regia L.
TLDR
Immature cotyledons of open-pollinated seeds from five walnut cultivars were excised from fruits at 6–11 weeks after full pistillate bloom and grown on a sequence of media to induce somatic embryogenesis to create mature somatic embryos. Expand
Histology of somatic embryogenesis from floral tissues cocoa
TLDR
Somatic embryogenesis fromTheobroma cacao L. flower buds was tested on several other genotypes, belonging to the three cocoa-tree groups: Forastero, Trinitario and Criollo, and gave evidence of genotypic efficiencies. Expand

TLDR
The findings indicate that the bud apices could be maintained in culture for long periods which may provide a basis for the development of a micropropagation procedure for cocoa. Expand

TLDR
It is hypothesized that the primary effect of TDZ was through induction of a stress response in the geranium plants, which led to increased availability of energy and reducing power required for subsequent growth and to initiate stress adaptation mechanisms including modified cellular processes and regenerative outgrowth development.
