Abstract: Formation of resin canal in somatic embryos of Commiphora wightii (Arnott.) Bhandari has been reported. Resin canal formation is a prerequisite for obtaining resin canal based secondary metabolites and resin canal formation in callus cultures is not known. Resin canals were observed in torpedo shaped and cotyledonary stage embryos. Early stages were devoid of it. Resin canals formed in somatic embryos were comparable with those formed in the stem. This provides large quantities of aseptic resin canals in organized structures, which can be used for the production of guggulsterones through biotechnological methods relieving pressure on natural resources.
