Stem cuttings were produced from Solanum tuberosum L., Desiree, plants and their transgenic forms harboring rolB and rolC genes from Agrobacterium rhizogenes. Plants were cultured on hormone-free Murashige and Skoog nutrient medium (MS) and on MS supplemented with IAA or kinetin. In microtubers developed on these cuttings, we estimated the content of starch and the number and size of starch granules.
