Abstract

Differentiation In Hypocotyl Cultures Of Solanum Platanifolium Sims And Solasodine Production

Author(s): R. K Jaggi, A. L Kajla, Jagdish Singh, Balbir Singh

Hypocotyl cultures were developed from explants obtained from in vitro germinated seedlings of Solanum platanifolium Sims (Family-Solanaceae) on modified Murashige and Skoog's agar-solidified medium supplemented with 6-benzylaminopurine (2 ppm) and α-napthaleneacetic acid (1 ppm). Shoots originated from callus were transferred to modified Murashige and Skoog's medium and modified White's medium supplemented with different growth adjuvants. 6-benzylaminopurine (4 ppm) produced optimum growth of somatic shoots on MS medium. Chemical analysis of different tissues grown showed that organogenesis enhanced solasodine production.
