    ABSTRACT: Hypocotyl expiants from 22 cultivars ofCatharanthus roseus were cultured on various shoot-inducing media to assess their competence for adventitious shoot formation. The Murashige and Skoog (MS) media had been supplemented with 14 μM zeatin and 2.5 μM indole-3-butyric acid (IBA), 4.5 μM BA and 0.5 μM α-naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA), or 14 μM thidiazuron and 2.5 μM IBA. After eight weeks, the expiants from ‘Cooler Raspberry Red’ showed the greatest frequency of adventitious shoot formation, followed by ‘Cooler Orchid’ and ‘Cooler Treated’. The highest frequency (86.7%) for ‘Cooler Raspberry Red’ was attained on the medium enhanced with 14 μM zeatin and 2.5 μM NAA. Excised adventitious shoots were then readily rooted on a half-strength MS basal medium. Afterward, the regenerated plantlets were transferred to potting soil and grown to maturity in a greenhouse.

    ABSTRACT: Culture conditions were optimized for somatic embryogenesis ofPanax ginseng. The highest frequency of embryo formation was obtained when tissues were excised from the middle region of the cotyledon segments of zygotic embryos. Only treatment with light could stimulate the formation of single-type somatic embryos, whereas multiple-type somatic embryos and calli were observed under dark conditions. The highest production of somatic embryos was found with an NH4 +:NO3 ratio of 21:39. Among the tested media (MS, B5, and SH), maximum formation of somatic embryos was obtained when cotyledon expiants were cultured on an 1% agar MS medium supplemented with 5% sucrose. Regenerated ginseng plantlets were transferred to an autoclaved soil mixture in the greenhouse. These transformants showed no detectable variations in their morphology or growth characteristics compared with the donor plant. Keywordsagar-macro salts- Panax ginseng -somatic embryogenesis-sucrose
