In Vitro Clonal Propagation and Phytochemical Analysis of Momordica Charantia .Linn
Mala Agarwal*, Raka Kamal
The explants from in vitro grown seedling were cultured on modified MS medium. Shoot, root and callus differentiation was obtained on MS medium supplemented with BAP, IBA and 2, 4-D respectively. Shoot as well as root differentiation was obtained on medium containing BAP+IBA/NAA. Multiple shoots with roots were obtained on MS medium without hormones(MSO).On Qualitative and quantitative estimation of flavonoids & steroids , presence of three flavonoids and three steroids was detected and the maximum amount was in 6-wk old callus cultures(2.90mg/g dw and 27.34mg/gdw respectively). while in different in vitro morphogenetic stages, the maximum amount of flavonoid and steroid content was in multiple shoots(2.96mg/gdw and 10.39mg/gdw).On supplementing the callus with different concentrations of cholesterol and salicylic acid significant recovery of diosgenin 6-wk old callus supplemented with 0.05mM concentration.
