In testing the effect of NAA and Kinetin on the embryogenesis, factors included: (NAA) at four levels: (0, 0.5, 1, 2 mg/l, Kinetin at four levels: (0, 0.5, 1, 2 mg/l), explants at four levels: (Stem, Axillary bud and leaves).
Micropropagation via axillary bud proliferation from seedlings and juvenile shoots of Pinus patula Schiede et Deppe.
This analysis made it possible to determine that the cell proliferation leading to nodal thickening occurs in the proximity of the axillary bud in the layers underlying the endodermis, i.e., there is a collaboration from the pericycle in this process.
included stage-specific transition rates for axillary bud survival (S), belowground axillary bud production (i.e., vegetative reproduction, V) and tiller growth (G).
For different micropropagation techniques (meristem culture axillary bud culture root culture leaf culture anther culture) any plant parts (axillary bud root leaf anther etc.) can be used because every cell has the ability to regenerate (totepotency).
Therefore, (Kaewpoo and Te-chato, 2009) used lower cytokinin levels 0.5 mg [l.sup.-1] BA and 0.25 mg [l.sup.-1] IBA to induce adventitious shoots directly from stem, axillary bud and shoot tip explants achieving a multiplication factor of about 5 shoots/explants.
through axillary bud culture", Plant Cell Rep., 15, pp.
Any leaf, vegetative bud, or floral bud that arises from the node at the leaf axil is called an axillary bud, whereas the one that arises from the top is the apical bud.
The most common pattern of leaf and axillary bud attachment is an alternating sequence of one leaf and bud per node.
This results in a reallocation of plant root resources to shoot production and plant compensation derived from axillary bud development (Pratt et al.
The basic parts of the stem are the terminal bud, bud scale, terminal bud-scale scar, axillary bud or lateral bud, node, internode, leaf scar, and lenticel.
