Successful cryopreservation of Quercus robur plumules

Abstract

Successful cryopreservation of Q. robur germplasm as plumules (i.e. shoot apical meristems of embryos) is described in this paper. After excision from the recalcitrant seeds and preliminary storage in 0.5 M sucrose solution (18 h), the plumules were subjected to cryoprotection (in 0.75 M sucrose, followed by 1.0 M sucrose and 1.5 M glycerol solutions), and… (More)
