Plant Regeneration from Protoplasts of Ligusticurn wallichii Franch

Li Zhong-yi and Chen Hui-min   

Abstract: The hypocotyls of the embryoid derived plantlets of Ligusticum wallichii Franch were used for protoplast preparation. Protoplasts were obtained with the enzyme mixture containing 1.5% Onozuka R-10, 0.3% Macerozyme R-10, 0.5% Snailase, 5 mmol/l CaCl2, 1 mmol/l KH2PO4, 0.6 mol/l manitol, at pH 5.6–5.8 and 27℃. Protoplasts were cultured in a modified MS liquid medium containing 1 mg/l 2,4-D + 0.5 mg/l 6- BA. The first divisions were found after twelve days, and the dividing cells formed cell colonies of 0.5–1 mm after about fourty days. When they were transferred to MS agar medium (with half quantity of macronutrients) supplemented with 2,4-D (0.5mg/l) and 6-BA(0.5mg/l), they grew into calli. At last, on the medium without any phytohormones, the growing calli differentiated embryoids which developed into plantlets with many green leaves and roots.

Key words: Ligusticum ulallichii Franch, Protoplast, Plant regeneratioa
