Callus and organ formation in apical meristem cultures of Zea mays L

Callus and organ formation in apical meristem cultures of Zea mays L

Archiv fur Zuchtungsforschung 15(5): 309-318

Meristems were taken from 3085 seedlings of a synthetic variety at different stages of organogenesis, and cultured on a Linsmaier & Skoog medium. Over half of the cultures showed callus, leaf or root formation. Explants taken at early stages of organogenesis (up to the differentiation of the inflorescence axis) showed a lower frequency and intensity of callus or root formation but greater leaf formation than explants taken at later stages (initiation of the androecium and gynoecium primordia).
