Isolation, Culture and Callus Formation of lpomoea batatas Protoplasts

Wu Yao-wu and Ma Cai-ping   

Abstract: Numerous viable protoplasts from stem callus cells of Ipomoea batatas tissue culture have been isolated by enzyme treatment involving cellulase EA3 867 (2.0%), CaC12·2H2O (20 mM) and mineral constituent of medium A at pH5.4 in 0.8 M mannitol in 5 hours at 25±1℃. The protoplasts were cultured at a density of 1-2 × 105/ml in solid agar medium E supplemented with 2, 4-D (0.1mg/l) and kinetin (0.1 mg/l), or NAA (0.3 mg/l) and kinetin (0.1 mg/l) in petri dishes, and placed in a controlled growth cabinet maintained at 27 ℃, and illuminated with floureseent light. They regenerated new cell wails after 7 days of culture. The first cell division was observed after 10 days. Ceil division continued thereafter, and after 40 days of culture small white calli (size about 0.2–0.3 mm) were visible in the petri dishes small calli were inoculated in the same nutrients as the protoplasts culture media, but without mannitol. They developed into large calli.
