In vitro cultured seedlings or microtubers are the major starting materials for the production of potato. Currently, seedlings are cultured in media sterilized by autoclaving, which, however, consumes more electricity and takes longer for sterilization, and also requires high temperature-tolerant vessel materials. In order to identify alternative methods of sterilizing culture conditions, the disinfection effects of chlorine dioxide (CD) at 88.0, 29.3, 17.6, 12.6 and 8.8 μM were evaluated in…

Demethylation was observed in the CpG island (-273 to -166 bp) of the CAO1 promoter in response to light, which further confirmed that the variations in genome methylation are dependent upon the light exposure and suggests a direct role for DNA methylation.
Disinfection performance of chlorine dioxide gas at ultra-low concentrations and the decay rules under different environmental factors
Gaseous chlorine dioxide at ultra-low concentrations has a high sterilisation efficiency and is non-corrosive to metals and Humidity and illuminance can influence decay laws of extremely low concentration ClO2 gas.
Identification of novel heavy metal detoxification proteins in Solanum tuberosum: Insights to improve food security protection from metal ion stress.
A new category of functional genes was identified and investigated, providing new directions for understanding heavy metal detoxification mechanisms and providing additional directions and foundations for mining gene resources for heavy metal tolerance genes to improve safe, green crop production and plant treatment of heavy metal soil pollution.


Evaluation of aqueous chlorine dioxide for disinfecting plant explants
Aqueous chlorine dioxide can be effectively utilized as an alternative disinfectant for low-polyphenol-containing explants in general and shown to be suitable for explant disinfection in other low- polyphenols-containing plant species.
Sterilization of culture media for orchids using a microwave oven
It was found that addition of 2 mL of 30% hydrogen peroxide (Peridrol® solution) per liter of culture medium, an 8-min boiling time in the microwave oven, and 8 g/L agar were sufficient to produce solidified culture media, which facilitated orchard seed germination and growth without contamination.
Easy and efficient chemical sterilization of the culture medium for in vitro growth of gerbera using chlorine dioxide (ClO2)
Micropropagation techniques changed the production of clonal plantlets in the world. However, the high costs of micropropagated plantlets continue as the main constraint for the expansion of the
Micropropagation of gerbera using chlorine dioxide (ClO2) to sterilize the culture medium
Use of 0.0025% ClO2 to sterilize the culture medium resulted in better plantlet development than autoclaved medium, regardless of the stage of micropropagation, which showed similar or better development than those grown in autoclaving culture medium.
