Plant Regeneration from Petiole Protoplasts of Brassica napus

Luo Ke and Luo Peng   

Abstract: Two cultivars of Brassica napus, Altex and Canadian twins, were used as materials. Protoplasts isolated from petioles of plants grown in vitro were cultured in Nitsch medium supplemented with 0.5mg/L BA, 0.5mg/L NAA, lmg/L 2,4-D, 100mg/L serine, 800mg/L glutamine, 4% sucrose and 0.4mol/L mannitol. After 2 days of culture, the first division was observed. The division frequency estimated after 10 days of culture was 30-60%. One week after transferring onto MS medium containing 6mg/L GA3. and 3mg/L BA, protoplast-derived calli regenerated into shoots. The regeneration frequency of the two cultivars was 24% and 31% respectively. It was found that the protoplasts isolated from petioles could float on the surface of the 3% sucrose contained solution which was very favourable both to purification, and culture of the protoplasts.

Key words: Brassica napus, Petiole protoplasts, Plant regeneration
