Regeneration and Establishment of Potato Plantlets Through Callus Formation with BAP and NAA

S. Yasmin, K.M. Nasiruddin, R. Begum and S.K. Talukder    

Abstract: The experiment was conducted in the USDA Biotechnology Laboratory, Biotechnology Department, Bangladesh Agricultural University, Mymensingh to observe the effect of NAA and BAP on callus formation and regeneration from leaf and internodal segment explants. Five levels of each of NAA (0, 1.25, 2.5, 5 and 10 mg l-1) and BAP (0, 0.5, 1, 2 and 4 mg l-1) were applied to MS media for callus induction as well as plantlet regeneration. Twenty explants were cultured in each combination. Leaf showed better performance in callus induction and plantlet regeneration. The highest percentage of callus (95%) was induced with 2.5 mg l-1 NAA + 2 mg l-1 BAP and also minimum time (8.13 days) was required for callus induction in the same concentrations. The percentage of regeneration showed the highest value (80%) with 2.5 mg l-1 NAA + 2 mg l-1 BAP of all the combinations. It was also observed that callus derived from leaf produced plantlets in a shortest period of time (23.68 days) compared to that from stem (28.96 days).
