Protoplast Culture and Plant Regeneration of Malus pumila

Ding Ai-ping, Wang Hong-fan and Cao Yu-fen   

Abstract: Calli were induced and suspension cell lines were set up from ovule of Malus pumila Mill. Protoplasts (5.40 × 106/g fr. wt) were isolated from suspension cell lines in enzyme mixture solution containing 2.0% Onozuka R-10, 0.5% pectinase, 0. 65 mol/L mannital, 0.01 mol/L CaC12, 0.7 mmol/L KH2 PO4, 0.3% dextran sulfate potassium salt, at pH 5.8 for 6 h at 26℃. The cell clumps were formed from protoplasts cultured in modified MS, K8p, D2 media. Calli were formed on MS solid medium containing 2.0 mg/L IAA, 2.0 mg/L NAA, 0.1 mg/L BA. Shoots were differentiated on differentiated medium after several changes of the medium. Eventually, shoots rooted and developed into whole plantlets on a rooting medium.

Key words: Malus pumila: Protoplasts culture, Plant regeneration
