Hi every one

the story that

I was do experiment and I used media contain different concentration of auxin ( 15mg/l) and 30mg/l . I used that to study its effect on Peanut embryo

I expected to get callus
but actually what happened is that I got shoot when I cultured the epicotyl

I want to know the reasons:???

Dont you need both auxine and cytokines to get callus?

I remember that auxin was for the growth of roots, cytokines for shoots and both for callus.

But I'll have to check my papers for that because its been a while since I had any plantscience

And I also remember that not all auxins would induce callusgrowth

If you don't know it, then ask it! Better to ask and look foolish to some than not ask and stay stupid.
