Objectives

objectives

To develop a protocol for callus production and cell culture on Fenugreek explants

Assess effects of genotype and media on basil plantlet multiplication


Materials and methods

Materials and Methods


Media explants preparation and culture

Media, Explants Preparation, and Culture


Seed germination

Seed Germination

Germination medium contained

half strength M&S (Murashige and Skoog 1962) salt,

7.5 g/L sucrose

4 g/L agar

pH. 5.5-6.0

Autoclaving at 15psi and 121°C for 20 min.

Disinfestations

30% Clorox bleach (1.8% NaOCl) containing 1 drop of Tween 20 under vacuum [600-700mmHg] for 20 minutes.

Rinsed 3 changes of sterile distilled deionize water.

Blotted dry with sterile filter paper and place germination media

All cultures were sealed with parafilm and placed in an incubator at 23± 1°C and 16 hr/8 hr light/dark photoperiod.


Fenugreek explants

Fenugreek Explants

Media

M&S salts

30 g/L sucrose

A factorial combination of

  • NAA (0.0, 1.0 mg/L)

  • Kinetin (0.0, 0.3, 1.0, 3.0 mg/L)

    Agar(8 g/L)

    pH 5.6-6.0

    autoclaving at 15psi and 121°C for 20 min.


Basil seedlings of 5 genotypes 23 82 62 74 and 83

Basil seedlings of 5 genotypes (23, 82, 62, 74, and 83)

Media

M & S salts

30 g/L sucrose

a combination of

  • Kinetin (0.1, 1.0, 3.0 mg/L)

  • NAA (0.1 mg/L)

    Agar(8 g/L).

    pH 5.6-6.0

    Autoclaving at 15psi and 121°C for 20 min.

    The seedlings of each basil genotype were evenly distributed in all media.


In vitro morphogenetic responses of fenugreek and basil explants

All cultures were sealed with parafilm and placed in an incubator at 23± 1°C and 16 hr/8 hr light/dark photoperiod.


Data and analyses

All cultures were observed weekly for contamination, explants growth and differentiation.

The parameter that were measured included the number of roots formed, shoots, callus production, plantlet production

The data was analyzed by taking the averages of counts.  

Data and Analyses


Results and discussion

Results and Discussion


Conclusion

Such responses will help in determining the most suitable protocol for micropropagating these important medicinal plants

Choice of explants and the type of genotype used are important criteria for successful application of micropropagation and cell culture techniques in Fenugreek and basil respectively.

CONCLUSION
