|Title:||Somatic embryogenesis from leaf explants of soapnut (Sapindus mukorossi Gaertn.)|
|Authors:||Philomina, N S|
|Keywords:||Soapnut, somatic embryogenesis|
|Abstract:||Plant regeneration through somatic embryogenesis has been developed in an economically important forest tree, Sapindus mukorossi Gaetin. Calli obtained by culturing young leaf explants on MS medium containing growth regulators, 2,4-D (6.7 M) and Kn (9.0 M), when subjected to reduced levels of 2,4-D (2.2 M)+Kn (4.6mM), produced numerous somatic embryos. Somatic embryos developed into complete plantlets on MS medium devoid of growth regulators. The regenerated plantlets were successfully established in the soil with 90% survival frequency after a few days of acclimatization.|
