Variable DNA content of Cyclamen persicum regenerated via somatic embryogenesis: rethinking the concept of long-term callus and suspension cultures

Abstract

By flow cytometric experiments in Cyclamen persicum both with propidium iodide (PI) and DAPI (4′,6-Diamidino-2-phenylindol)-staining we were able to present (1) a new estimation for the absolute DNA content in the range of 3.17 pg DNA/2C and (2) ploidy abnormalities which were detected in the pathway of somatic embryogenesis. These aberrations might have… (More)
