Phytosulfokine alpha improves microspore embryogenesis in wheat and triticale. Plant Cell Tissue and Organ Culture.

Abstract: Isolated microspore culture (IMC) has been used to develop doubled haploid lines and to generate homozygous lines in a single generation for varietal development. Phytosulfokine has been previously used in promoting cell growth and embryo development in various systems.

Organelle antioxidants improve microspore embryogenesis in wheat and triticale. In Vitro Cellular & Developmental Biology-Plant.

Abstract: Low frequency of green plant production and albinism limits the use of isolated microspore culture (IMC) in cereal breeding programs. The present study was conducted in triticale and bread wheat IMC to increase the production of green plants and minimize albinism.
