A Comparitive Study Of The Effect Of SA And EMS On In Vitro Production Of Andrographolide In Andrographis paniculata (Burm.F.) Nees
Publication Date : 29/08/2017
Comparative effects of 0.01% of EMS and 0.01% SA (sodium azide) for 3 hours on secondary metabolite production in Andrographis paniculata were conducted in this study. Calli were derived from leaf explants inoculated on Murashige and Skoog’s (MS) medium supplemented with 2 mg/l NAA, 1 mg/l Kinetin and 50 mg/l Phenylalanine. Treatment of 0.01% SA for 3 hours resulted in 7 fold increase in andrographolide production when compared to control and 0.01% EMS for 3 hours produced 6 fold increase in andrographolide production compared to the control. The study also showed that 0.01% SA for 3 hours treated samples positively influenced on the fresh weight, dry weight of calli, callus induction frequency and andrographolide production compared to the 0.01% EMS for 3 hours treated samples.
