Shoot organogenesis in oleaster (Elaeagnus angustifolia L.)
AbstractEfficient plant regeneration through organogenesis was achieved from callus cultures derived from leaf explants of Elaeagnus angustifolia. Calli were obtained on MS medai containing 3% sucrose and different concentrations of TDZ (0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 mg/l). Maximum percentage response for callus formation was 85% on MS medium supplemented with 2 mg/l of TDZ. Shoot organogenesis was achieved after transfer of calli to MS media with 3% sucrose and different concentrations of BA (0.5, 1,
2, 3, 4 and 6 mg/l) and kinetin (0.5, 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6 mg/l). Maximum organogenesis was obtained with 2 mg/l of BA. Rooting of the shoots was achieved on MS supplemented with 0.2 mg/l of IBA. Regenerated plantlets were acclimatized and successfully transplanted to soil.
