Somatic embryogenesis of safflower: influence of auxin and ontogeny of somatic embryos

Influence of auxin type and concentration on somatic embryogenesis from cotyledonary explants of safflower was investigated. Embryogenic frequency as well as number of somatic embryos was dependent on auxin type and concentration. NAA at 10.74 μM (2 mg l−1) was optimum for high frequency of somatic embryos, whereas IAA provided the maximum number of somatic embryos per responding culture. Somatic embryo development was asynchronous and strongly affected by auxin type and concentration. Maximum… CONTINUE READING
