Synergistic effect of kinetin and benzyl adenine improves the regeneration of cotyledon explants of bottle gourd (Lagenaria siceraria) on ethylene production
In this study, we show the capacity of de novo shoot organogenesis from cotyledon explants of bottle gourd in vitro in relation to ethylene, ethylene inhibitor, phytohormones and growth supplements. The physiological relevance of the hormonal interaction with respect to regulation of ethylene initiation and effect on regeneration is discussed.
