Effect of activated charcoal on shoot bud induction and callus induction in different explants of guggul [Commiphora wightii (Arnott)]: A medicinal plant

Author(s):
Rajani Verma and ML Jakhar
Abstract:
Commiphora wightii (Arnott) is a medicinally important plant which is now considered as critically endangered species of the family Burseraceae having the chromosome number 2n = 26. One of the major problem associated with plant tissue culture is browning of the culture medium and the explants, which invariably leads to death of plants. In order to control browning of medium and explants in vitro, many workers have tried to incorporating non specific absorbents like activated charcoal. Activated charcoal is often used in tissue culture to improve cell growth and development.
