Effect of nitrogen mustard on Rauwolfia tissue culture


, : Effect of nitrogen mustard on Rauwolfia tissue culture. Phytomorphology 22(3/4): 260-264

Stem callus of R. serpentina was cultured in a medium containing nitrogen mustard and compared with untreated tissue. Nitrogen mustard induced chromosome aberrations and increased the number of triploid cells. In one of the treated strains, the capacity for alkaloid biosynthesis was twice as high as in the control.

In many regions, the binding has not yet been correlated with functional responses. The p...
