Abstract

Tissue cultures were established from different parts of sesame (Sesamum indicum L. cv. PT) seedlings. A callus tissue derived from hypocotyl segments produced embryo like structures. Shoot tips with cotyledons excised from 8 to 10-d-old seedlings produced multiple shoot buds on a cytokinin-enriched medium. Presoaking and germination of seeds in BA or 2iP (8 mg l⁻¹) enhanced the development of shoot buds. Upon isolation and culture the shoots buds formed rooted plantlets in a charcoal-enriched medium.
