Abstract

SummaryRegeneration of adventitious shoots from the medicinal plant Nothapodytes foetida (Weight) Sleumer Syn. Mappia foetida (family Ieacinaceceae) has been achieved using different seedling explants. Direct, regeneration of shoot buds was observed in Murashige and Skoog's (MS) basal medium supplemented with various concentrations of thidiazuron. The optimum levels of thidiazuron concentrations were 0.91-4.45 μM. Leaf explants formed more shoots followed by hypocotyls or cotyledons. The shoot buds elongated and rooted on MS basal medium with N6-benzyladenine (0.88-2.22 μM) and indole-3-butyric acid (0.49 μM).
