Pollen contains the male gametophyte. Embryo culture Embryos can be used as explants to generate callus cultures or somatic embryos. Microspore culture Haploid tissue can be cultured in vitro by using pollen or anthers as an explant. This method can be used for clonal propagation. The liquid medium must be shallow enough to allow aeration in the absence of agitation.

Liquid medium is not agitated and a high osmotic potential is maintained. Both callus and embryos can be produced from pollen. Protoplasts are fragile and easily damaged. Anthers somatic tissue that surrounds and contains the pollen can be cultured on solid medium agar should not be used to solidify the medium as it contains.

Whole plants can be regenerated by organogenesis or somatic embryogenesis from this callus. Two main approaches can be taken to produce in vitro cultures from haploid tissue.

Both immature and mature embryos can be used as explants. The growth of roots in vitro is potentially unlimited. Shoot tip and meristem culture The tips of shoots which contain the shoot apical meristem can be cultured in vitro.

Root cultures Root cultures can be established in vitro from explants of the root tip of either primary or lateral roots and can be cultured on fairly simple media. Protoplasts can be plated out on to solid medium and callus produced. Haploid tissue cultures can also be initiated from the female gametophyte the ovule. Plant species can be divided into two groups. These pretreatments can be applied before culture. Plant tissue culture inhibitory substances. The dehiscence of the anther depends both on its isolation at the correct stage and on the correct culture conditions.

If isolated pollen is used there is no danger of mixed embryo formation. In some species.

This can be a consequence of chromosome doubling during the culture period. Chromosome doubling which often has to be induced by treatment with chemicals such as colchicine may be an advantage. Plant regeneration Having looked at the main types of plant culture that can be established in vitro. Many of the cereals rice. Pollen-derived embryos are subsequently produced via dehiscence of the mature anthers.

The ploidy of the plants obtained from haploid cultures may not be haploid. Immature pollen can also be extracted from developing anthers and cultured directly. Anthers can also be cultured in liquid medium.

In some cases. In microspore culture. Regeneration from microspore explants can be obtained by direct embryogenesis. Both methods have advantages and disadvantages. In the second stage embryo production embryos are produced in a medium with no or very low levels of 2.

Further development results in heart. In the initial stage embryo initiation. Somatic embryogenesis In somatic asexual embryogenesis. In direct somatic embryogenesis. In indirect somatic embryogenesis. Single cell Figure 2.

Zygotic embryos undergo a fundamentally similar development through the globular which is formed after the 16cell stage. Somatic embryogenesis from carrot is the classical example of indirect somatic embryogenesis and is explained in more detail in Box 2.

Embryos can then be produced from the callus tissue or from a cell suspension produced from that callus. Though common from some tissues usually reproductive tissues such as the nucellus. These somatic embryos can be produced either directly or indirectly. Polarity is established early in embryo development. Somatic embryos may develop from single cells or from a small group of cells. Signs of tissue differentiation become apparent at the globular stage and apical meristems are apparent in heart-stage embryos.

An example of direct somatic embryogenesis is given in Box 2. Direct somatic embryogenesis from alfalfa Medicago falcata Young trifoliate leaves are used as the explant see Figure. These are removed from the plant and chopped into small pieces. Removal of the old 2. This callus can be used to produce a cell suspension by placing it in agitated liquid MS medium containing 2. Direct somatic embryogenesis in alfalfa. This cell suspension can be maintained by repeated subculturing into 2.

The pieces are washed in a plant growth regulator-free medium and placed in liquid medium B5 supplemented with 2. Murashige and Skoog MS containing 2.

Plant tissue culture BOX 2. The isolation and culture of immature embryos is. Embryogenic callus is normally initiated by placing the immature embryo on to a medium containing 2.

In many systems it has been found that somatic embryogenesis is improved by supplying a source of reduced nitrogen. One alternative is to use mature embryos or seeds as the explant to initiate embryogenic callus. These shoots can be subsequently rooted. Maltose is often used as the carbon source in preference to sucrose. These somatic embryos can be matured on solid medium containing abscisic acid. The commercial. Alternatives are therefore being sought. Washing the explants and replacing the old medium with B5 medium supplemented with maltose and polyethylene glycol results in the development of the somatic embryos.

The cultures are maintained in agitated liquid medium for about 10—15 days. CASE STUDY Cereal regeneration via somatic embryogenesis from immature or mature embryos The principal method adopted for the tissue culture and regeneration of a wide range of cereal species is somatic embryogenesis.

An additional problem is the small target size if the immature embryos are to used for biolistic transformation biolistic transformation is explained in Chapter 3.

This approach has been successfully applied to several cereal species such as rice and oats. Shoot regeneration is initiated by placing the embryogenic callus on a medium with BAP with or without 2. The initial medium.

Model genotypes that responded well to culture in vitro were initially used in plant transformation studies. Note that in both cases. There are three methods of plant regeneration via organogenesis. In particular. Organogenesis Box 2. When cultured on a medium containing both auxin and cytokinin. If the auxin to cytokinin ratio is increased. The leaf pieces are then transferred right side up to gelled MS medium supplemented with 1 mg l-1 BAP a cytokinin and 0.

Over the next few weeks. Organogenesis Somatic embryogenesis relies on plant regeneration through a process analogous to zygotic embryo germination. After 3 to 5 weeks shoots emerge directly from the explants or from callus derived from the explants. Many factors have been investigated for their ability to improve the culture response from elite cultivars.

Tobacco plants can also be easily regenerated from tobacco leaf pieces. One of the main aims is therefore to identify the components that make up a widely applicable. It the auxin to cytokinin ratio is decreased adventitious shoots will be formed. When these shoots are about 1cm long they can be cut at the base and placed on to solid MS medium without any plant growth regulators.

Plant tissue culture cultivars tended to respond poorly to culture in vitro. The shoots will form roots and form plantlets that will grow in this medium and can subsequently be transferred to soil.

Organogenesis relies on the inherent plasticity of plant tissues. If the explants are cultured on medium containing only a cytokinin shoots can be produced directly. Leaves are cut into aproximately 1 cm squares with a sterile scalpel avoiding large leaf veins and any damaged areas. B Somatic embryogenesis Figure 2. In some species a variety of culture types and regeneration methods can be used. These shoots can then be rooted relatively simply.

The explant can be used to initiate a variety of culture types. Some plant species may be amenable to regeneration by a variety of. Integration of plant tissue culture into plant transformation protocols Various methods of plant regeneration are available to the plant biotechnologist. Different culture types and regeneration methods are amenable to different transformation protocols. Regeneration by either organogenesis or somatic embryogenesis results in the production of whole plants.

Different combinations of culture type and transformation protocol are used depending on the plant species and cultivar being used.

Not all plant tissue is suited to every plant transformation method. Some crops may be amenable to a variety of regeneration and transformation strategies.

Summary Tissue culture and plant regeneration are an integral part of most plant transformation strategies.
