Micro propagation and organic studies in Astercantha longifolia (l) nees and variation in phenol content in callus

Author(s): Santajit Bag, Harishankar Lal*, Prashant Kumar Mishra


Multiple shoots were induced from nodal segments and shoot tips of Asteracantha longifolia (Acanthaceae) and Ms Medium containing NAA (0.05mg/l) +Kinetin (0.25mg/l) was found to give the best shoot proliferation rate. Callus was induced from the leaf explants on the same medium supplemented with NAA (1.0 mg/l) + BAP (0.75mg/l). The in vitro proliferation shoots were rooted and later transferred to the soil.
