Shoot regeneration from peduncles and shoot-like regeneration from leaves of babaco, Carica pentagona
MetadataAfficher la notice complète
C. pentagona shoots were regenerated from peduncle sections cultured on medium containing benzyladenine (BA, 0, 0.5 or 1.0 mg/litre) plus IAA (0.5 or 1.0 mg/litre) under a 16-h or 18-h photoperiod and a light intensity of 16 micro mol-1 m-2. Whole leaves from in vitro-stock material and leaf sections containing either a petiole or main vein from greenhouse plants regenerated roots and/or shoot-like structures on medium containing BA (1.0 or 1.5 mg/litre) plus IAA (1.0 or 3.0 mg/litre). Histological analysis of sections of peduncles and leaves demonstrated that shoots appeared to regenerate directly from cells associated with the vascular systems.
