The effect of cadmium on potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) shoot culture growth
- 47 Downloads
The uptake of cadmium and its effect on the growth of potato shoot tips grownin vitro were followed in dependence on cadmium concentration in nutrient medium.
Concentration of 10−6M Cd2+did not substantially affect potato plantlet growth dynamics; but the concentration of 10−3 M Cd2+ showed a strong growth inhibitory effect accompanied with increased cadmium accumulation in both root and shoot tissues.
