Survival and growth of eastern white pine shoot apical meristems in vitro



Survival and growth of eastern white pine shoot apical meristems in vitro



Plant cell tissue and organ culture 46(3): 171-178



Shoot apical meristems of seedling and mature eastern white pine trees were excised and grown in vitro. Placing the meristems on filters instead of directly on agarose-solidified nutrient medium enhanced survival of both juvenile and mature meristems. Applying forcing treatments to mature branches improved survival and growth of dissected meristems compared with meristems from non-forced branches in experiments conducted over two years. No consistent differences were observed among 2-, 4-, and 6-week forcing treatments. Including 5.37 nM (0.001 mg l-1) 1-naphthaleneacetic acid in the culture medium did not affect meristem survival or growth. Some meristems from seedlings grew rapidly, produced primary leaves, underwent internode elongation, and in three cases, produced adventitious roots. Meristems from mature trees did not grow as rapidly as seedling meristems. The leaves produced by mature meristems appeared to be scale leaves and a few of these had brachyblast primordia in the axils. The shoots derived from mature meristems did not produce adventitious roots.
