EFFECT OF PLANT GROWTH REGULATORS ON CHLOROPLAST ULTRA STRUCTURE IN LAMIUM ALBUM PLANTLETS
M. Stefanova, D. Koleva, T. Ganeva
Abstract: Lamium album L. stem nodal segments were grown on Murashige and Skoog’s medium without growth regulators (control) and on media supplemented with 0.2 mg l-1 N6-benzyladenine, 0.5 mg l-1 indole-3-butyric acid or both plant growth regulators. The plastid apparatus of in vitro formed leaflets was studied by transmission electron microscopy. The cytokinin N6-benzyladenine negatively affected the chloroplast formation when was applied individually or in combination with the auxin indole-3-butyric acid. On the contrary, IBA in concentration of 0.5 mg l-1 was appropriate for development of chloroplasts with regular shape and well organized internal membrane system thus providing for the regeneration capacity in vitro.
