Callus Induction and Organogenesis from Explants of Aconitum heterophyllum- Medicinal Plant

Neelofar Jabeen, A.S. Shawl, G.H. Dar, Arif Jan and Phalisteen Sultan    

Abstract: A protocol has been developed for in vitro shoot proliferation from callus cultures of Aconitum heterophyllum Wall. Callus initiation occurs from nodal segments on MS media fortified with NAA (0.5 mg L-1) and BAP (0.25 mg L-1). Callus was transferred on Msmediasupplemented with BAP (0.25 mg L-1) for shoot proliferation. The best response for shoot proliferation was obtained on MS media+ NAA (0.25 mg L-1) + BAP (0.5 mg L-1). The well-developed micro shoots were transferred to root induction media containing MS basalmedia + IAA (1.0 mg L-1). The rooted plantlets were finally transferred to green house for hardening and field transfer.
