Protoplasts were produced from 7-day-old hypocotyls of two cultivated sunflower genotypes and three wild sunflowers. When included in agarose droplets and cultured in TL medium supplemented with 0.1 mg/l 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid, the protoplasts gave rise to loose colonies and to “embryoids”. After two months the small calli emerging from the agarose were transferred to a regeneration medium on which they grew and began to differentiate. A second transfer to the same medium 40 days later… CONTINUE READING
