The bulb scales swelled and produced yellow coloured and embryogenic calli structure after 15-20 days on all embryonic callus induction medium containing different basal media(Fig 1.c).
Embryogenic callus systems are highly regenerable and can generate large numbers of propagules and hold for long periods (MOURA et al., 2017).
The aim of this study was to describe the histological and biochemical characteristics of SE in order to elucidate this unexplored process in Swietenia macrophylla and to determine the embryogenic origin of the calli.
(2010) studied different brands of activated charcoal and particle size in the induction of somatic embryogenesis of mature Green Malayan Dwarf coconut plumules (GMD), and found that particles smaller than 0.38 [micro]M induced higher percentage of embryogenic calluses (70%).
Briefly, 2,4-D medium is used for the inoculation of dehusked mature seeds, which helps in the formation of embryogenic calli from the scutellum within 3-4 weeks.
More recently, MRI has allowed a better assessment of the spinal cord, allowing for a new classification based not on the bone defect but on the embryogenic error of the development of the spinal cord.
In this report, we aimed to present a novel case of sectoral ciliary body agenesis and complicated cataract as an embryogenic defect of eye development diagnosed by ultrasound biomicroscopy (UBM).
There are a few information on the in vitro propagation methods of cumaru, among other forest species (Das, 2011; Pena-Ramirez et al., 2011), indicating the need to deepen existing studies, such as callus induction, for multiplication by embryogenic route, morphogenic or even cryopreservation of species that occur in the Amazon biome (Steinmacher et al., 2007).
Gremlin is an embryogenic gene that has been shown to play a key role in kidney pathophysiology, and its expression is generally low in the normal adult kidney.
(10) These embryogenic cell-derived cysts can be classified as epidermoid cysts, dermoid cysts, neurogenic cysts, teratomas, and enteric cysts.
In fact, Zouine and El-Hadrami (2007) observed that the exogenous application of glutamine led to an increase in the protein synthesis in Phoenix dactylifera L embryogenic cells.
Therefore the present study was designed with four sugarcane cultivars developed by Sugarcane Research Institute, AARI, Faisalabad, to check the effect of cultivar, different media compositions on the callus induction, embryogenic callus formation, and plant regeneration.
