Somatic embryos of two triploid plantain clones ABB ‘Saba’ and ‘Pelipita’ were produced in liquid from cells derived from multiplying shoot cultures. The medium consisted of a modified Murashige and Skoog (1962) medium with the auxins 2,4-D (1 mg/l) and 2,4, 5-T (1 mg/l) and the cytokinin BAP (0.1, 1 mg/l). Whereas proembryonic masses formed in each… CONTINUE READING
