Effects of the Sucrose Concentration and pH Level on Shoot Regeneration from Callus in Araria elata Seem

Abstract: The optimum sucrose concentration and pH level were estimated for in vitro shoot regeneration from callus of Aralia elata Seem in a Broad-leaved tree (BT) medium with different concentrations of sucrose (0.0-25.0 g L-1) and a wide range of pH levels (4.5-6.8). The highest rate of shoot production was achieved in a shoot-regenerating medium with 15 g L-1 sucrose and a pH of 5.8. Shoot multiplication and growth were significantly affected by sucrose. Shoots were not formed in a sucrose-free medium. When the pH was adjusted below or above 5.8, the growth rate of the shoot significantly decreased.
