Abstract

Somatic embryogenesis of cucumber was affected by auxin and light during the induction phase. In the light, 2,4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) alone induced little embryogenesis, while combined with naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA) it induced 1.25 somatic embryos (SEs) per callus. In the dark 2,4-D alone induced 5 times more SEs per callus.
