Abstract

The diverse nematicidal properties and biocontrol efficacy of Bacillus thuringiensis Cry6A against the root-knot nematode Meloidogyne hapla.

Cry6A toxin from Bacillus thuringiensis is a representative nematicidal crystal protein with a variety of nematicidal properties to free-living nematode Caenorhabditis elegans. Cry6A shares very low homology and different structure with Cry5B, another representative nematicidal crystal protein, and...

Plant regeneration from shoot tips-derived callus of ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.).

A protocol was described to regenerate plants from callus culture of ginger (Zingiber officinale Rosc.). Callus cultures were induced from ginger shoot tips inverted cultured on semi-solid MS medium supplemented with 2, 4-D (0.5-1.0 mg L-1) and BA (0.5-1.0 mg L-1). Maximum callus induction was...
