Plants’ reaction to stress

Chemical stresses are either endogenous or exogenous. Endogenous Chemical Stress is the one, which are created inside our bodies. They are the result of improper diet or improper food combining. Toxins from outside the body are referred to as exogenous chemical stress. These are chemicals like food additives, pollution and drugs. They all have some [...]

Gibberellins are classified on the basis of structure as well as function. The gibberellins are named GA1....GAn in order of discovery. Gibberellins are a large group of related compounds defined not by their biological functions but by their structures. Gibberellic acid, which was the first gibberellin to be structurally characterised, is GA3. There are [...]

An auxin, indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) was the first plant hormone identified. It is manufactured primarily in the shoot tips i.e. in leaf primordia and young leaves, in embryos and in parts of developing flowers and seeds. It is transported from cell to cell through the parenchyma surrounding the vascular tissues by the expenditure of energy [...]

Protoplast Isolation

The term protoplast was introduced by Hanstein in 1880. It refers to the cellular content excluding cell wall or can also be called as a naked plant cell. It is described as living matter enclosed by a plant cell membrane. Protoplast isolation for the first time was carried out by Klercker in 1892 using the [...]

Benefits of plant tissue culture training

Plant tissue culture broadly refers to the in vitro cultivation of plants, seeds and various parts of the plants (organs, embryos, tissues, single cells, protoplasts). The cultivation process is invariably carried out in a nutrient culture medium under aseptic conditions Plant tissue culture is one of the most rapidly growing areas of biotechnology because [...]
