Abstract
Shoot multiplication of Gentiana kurroo Royle, a threatened medicinal plant species, was achieved in vitro using shoot tips and nodal segments as explants. Fifteen-fold shoot multiplication occurred every 6 weeks on Murashige and Skoog's medium (MS) containing 8.9 mu-M benzyladenine and 1.1 mu-M 1-naphthaleneacetic acid. Rooting was accomplished successfully in excised shoots grown on MS basal medium containing 6% sucrose.
