Reddy, Sairam P and Gopal, Rama G and Sita, Lakshmi G (1998) In vitro multiplication of Gymnema sylvestre R.Br. – An important medicinal plant. In: Current Science, 75 (8). pp. 843-845.
The objective of this study was to develop a rapid system for regenerating shoots from mature nodal explants of Gymnema sylvestre, an useful antidiabetic medicinal plant. Single node stem explants were inoculated on MS media containing different combinations of 6-benzylaminopurine (UAP) or kinetin with naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA). Maximum number of shoots (7 per explant) were observed on the medium containing BAP (5 mg/l) and NAA (0.2 mg/l). Regenerated shoots were rooted on MS half- strength medium without supplementing any growth regulator.
