A method for somatic embryogenesis and plant regeneration from immature nucellus (30–40 days old after pollination) of Mangifera persiciforma C.Y. Wu & T.L. Ming has been developed. Browning and necrosis of the nucellar explants were effectively controlled by pre-treating in an antioxidant solution and by pre-culturing in liquid medium in a constant temperature shaker. The explants were cultured for 2 weeks in the dark at 23 ± 2°C on induction medium and then moved to the light for 4 weeks at…

Somatic embryogenesis and plantlet regeneration in mango (Mangifera indica L.)

A protocol for somatic embryogenesis and plantlet regeneration in mango: eight strains of ‘Carabao’ and two unidentified varieties, PHL 12384 and PHL12378, which is reproducible in 14 other varieties of mango.

Direct somatic embryogenesis induced from cotyledons of mango immature zygotic embryos

For the first time, regenerated plantlets were obtained from immature zygotic embryos of mango (Mangifera indica L.) through direct somatic embryogenesis through the use of a modified Murashige and Skoog medium.

Plant regeneration from protoplasts of mango (Mangifera indica L.) through somatic embryogenesis

A protocol for the regeneration of plants from protoplasts isolated from proembryogenic masses in a suspension culture derived from the nucellar callus of mango and maturation of somatic embryos depended upon the presence, and the nature and combination of growth regulators in the medium during proliferation of the callus.

In Vitro Somatic Embryogenesis from Nucellar Callus of Monoembryonic Mango

Slowly growing calli were induced in vitro from nucellar explants excised from fertilized ovules of immature 4.0-4.8 cm long monoembryonic mango fruitlets. The medium consisted of Murashige and

Somatic embryos from culture ovules of polyembryonic Mangifera indica L.

Somatic embryogenesis occurred from the nucellus excised from the ovules of 5 of the naturally polyembryonic cultivars after 1–2 months in culture, and efficient somatic embryogenesis only occurred in liquid containing 20% CW.

Somatic embryogenesis and plantlet regeneration of mango (Mangifera indica L.)

CIAT is adapting and optimizing a protocol to induce somatic embryogenesis from Colombian and Florida mango cultivars, as a first step to target a broader range of genotypes.

Induction and cryopreservation of embryogenic cultures from nucelli and immature cotyledon cuts of mango (Mangifera indica L. var Zihua)

The protocols of somatic embryogenesis and cryopreservation of mango EMs established in this study may offer potential ways to improve mango germplasm conservation and genetic improvement.

Plant regeneration of Mangifera indica using liquid shaker culture to reduce phenolic exudation

Explants kept in liquid MS medium supplemented with 1% polyvinylpyrolidone in 250 ml conical flasks on an automated shaker at 75 rpm were able to produce shoots when inoculated on gelled MSmedium supplemented with different concentrations of growth regulators.

Biotechnology and mango improvement

On the basis of past and current research, it is probable that the following breeding priorities can be addressed by 1) mutation breeding: resistance to abiotic soil stress and certain diseases; and by 2) genetic transformation: control of fruit ripening, seedlessness andcertain diseases.
