Abstract

This study investigated the potential of Launea taraxacifolia for in vitro regeneration. Stem and leaf explants were inoculated on full strength Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with varying concentrations of 2, 4-dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D). Leaf explants responded to all concentrations of 2,4-D used while stem explants responded to only two of the 2, 4-D concentrations suggesting that leaf explants might be a better source of explants. Leaf explants generated shoots on medium supplemented with 0.5 mg/l kinetin and 0.1 mg/l 2, 4-D. This study is the first report on in vitro regeneration of Launea taraxacifolia.
