Hydrophobic loading and releasing of milk protein carrier systems for tissue culture based screenings 

 Kimpel, F. and Schmitt, J.J. 

Department of Food Technology, Fulda University of Applied Sciences, Leipziger Str. 123, 36037, Fulda, Germany.  

Abstract: Hydrophobic test substances are one of the major problems in cell culture based screenings for new functional molecules. As these substances are not soluble in water based buffers or tissue culture media, they are not able to reach the surface of the testing cells. Therefore, hydrophobic test substances need to be associated to carrier systems which are dispersible in water. The substances need to reach the tissue surfaces together with these carrier systems to attach to the lipophilic surface parts of the cell membranes. Encapsulation of the hydrophobic molecules in lipid structures like emulsions or liposomes cannot be applied, because those structures entrap the molecules and hardly present them to the cell surface membranes. This work introduces a solution to this problem by associating a hydrophobic test molecule to hydrophobic but water dispersible milk protein carrier systems. Those systems were nano structures of casein (micelles), isolated acid casein, sodium caseinate, β-lactoglobulin rich whey protein isolate and isolated α-lactalbumin. It was shown that acid casein and sodium caseinate can carry high amounts of the used hydrophobic model substance (β-carotene) but do not entirely release it. Whey protein isolate carries 5 times less molecules but releases them completely in lipophilic environments. Nano structures of casein diminish the carrying capacity of casein. 

Key words: Milk proteins, β-Carotene, Nano structures.

Abstract: The current research was conducted on the expression of Myxovirus resistance 2 (MX2) gene in the peripheral blood of buffalo heifers. The present study reports changes in the expression of Interferon- tau (IFN- τ)  stimulated MX2 gene in blood leukocyte on day17 in pregnant (n=10) and non-pregnant (n=6) buffalo heifers. The synthesized cDNA from extracted RNA of blood cells were used for partial amplification (739bp) of MX2 transcript by PCR with gene specific primers. The PCR products were subjected to agarose gel electrophoresis which showed a marked up-regulation of MX2 gene on day 17 of pregnant group and negligible expression in non-pregnant groups. Further with bioinformatics tools, structural, molecular and biological functional studies were done, followed by prediction of  most antigenic B-cell linear epitopes of Mx2 protein. Chemical  synthesis of these epitopes would help to develop an antibody against it. So, MX2 could  be a  potent pregnancy  specific  marker  which  could  be  used  to  diagnose early pregnancy in buffalo before beginning of next estrous cycle.

Abstract: Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) revealed several ultrastructural changes induced by exposure to cadmium in ciliated protozoan, Stylonychia mytilus. The main cytoplasmic alterations in the post treated cells were:-condensation of the ground cytoplasm, mitochondrial disorganization, cytoplasmic vacuolization, accumulation of electron dense bodies and autophagosome formation. At the nuclear level, there was condensation of macronuclear chromatin and the nucleolar organization underwent major alteration. In the micronuclei, there was convolution of micronuclear surface and retraction of chromatin from the nuclear envelope. These modifications were compared with the changes induced by cisplatin, heat shock treatment, ageing and starvation.

Abstract: Temperature mediated stress associated with stroke is a life threatening illnesses which results in severe central nervous system (CNS) dysfunction. A complex cascade of cellular and molecular mechanisms happens due to trigger of thermal stress in the body. The present study was undertaken to illustrate how apparently subtle differences in the cellular responses occurs due to heat and mild cold stress on proliferating homogenous population of human NPCs and its lineages. Proliferating CD133+ve enriched human NPCs were exposed to mild cold shock at 33°C and heat shock at 42°C  for 3 days. Neurospheres derived from control cultures at day 14 were dissociated and cultured in neuronal differentiation medium under heat and mild-cold stress for 3 days to assess the changes in molecular and neuronal cell phenotype. Both the stress conditions resulted in increased apoptosis during long-term in culture of developing neurospheres. Reduced neuronal differentiation was observed with aberrent neuronal cell phenotype during both types of stress. The G1 phase of cell cycle was found most severely affected during mild cold stress (33°C) for 14 days of exposure. However, heat stress at 42°C resulted in induced cell cycle activity. Cells under heat and mild cold stress resulted in reduced induction of 72kDa Hsp-70 mRNA transcript in differentiated cells as compared to undifferentiated cells. The present study provided evidence of cellular and molecular alterations generated by heat and mild cold stress in developing neurospheres and lineage differentiation of human NPCs during in vitro culture. 

Key words: Heat and mild cold stress; Neurocytoxicity

Abstract: The present study hypothesized a marked up-regulation of OAS1 (2,5Oligoadenylate Synthetase 1)  gene in early days of pregnancy in buffalo. The experiment was designed with Buffalo heifers (n=13) assigned as pregnant (PH, n=7) or non-pregnant cyclic (NPH, n=6)  groups and buffalo cows assigned as pregnant (PC, n=7) or non-pregnant cyclic (NPC,  n=9)  groups with a control group of Buffalo bulls (n=6). Blood was collected from these animals on day 0, 7, 14, 17, 21, 28 and 35 by accepting the artificial insemination (AI) day as day 0. The total RNA was extracted and converted to corresponding cDNA. Gene specific primers were used for partial amplification (413 bp) of OAS1 transcript by PCR. The PCR products were subjected to agarose  gel electrophoresis which showed a clear cut up-regulation of OAS1 gene from day 7 to 17 and down-regulation from day 17 to 28, having peak expression on day 14, 17 and 21. In brief, OAS1 gene expression can be used to diagnose early pregnancy after 14 day of conception and, hence, designing tool for early pregnancy diagnosis in buffalo.

Abstract: The electrophoretic spectra of haemolymph esterase and peroxidase isoenzyme systems were studied in twelve bivoltine silkworm (Bombyx mori L.) genotypes viz. NB4D2, SH6, Meigitsu, CSR4, Sheiki II, Pampore-5, J122, J2M, 14M, JBEL, NJ3 and B38. The biochemical analysis was done using native-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis. The banding pattern of esterase revealed moderate polymorphism among the genotypes. A total of six bands and six isozymic forms were observed. The relative mobility values ranged from 0.68 to 0.94 and the intensity scores ranged from 8 in B38 to 13 in NB4D2. However,  a great deal of polymorphism was observed  in the banding pattern of peroxidase. In all, nine bands and eleven isozymic forms were realized in this isoenzyme system. The relative mobility ranged from 0.39 to 0.94 and the intensity scores showed a range of 8 in NJ3 and B38 to 13 in NB4D2. Out of fifteen bands observed, only three were monomorphic while twelve were polymorphic. Moreover, the enzyme systems exhibited an appreciable range of relative mobility and activity suggesting that these enzyme systems could be used as markers for genotype identification. Further, significant and positive correlation was found between the isozymes and some yield parameters. Thus, these isozyme systems could be used in Marker Assisted Selection programmes for the improvement of silkworm breeds. 

Key words: Isoenzymes, polymorphism, Silkworm.

Division of Sericulture Mirgund, Sher-e-Kashmir University of Agricultural Sciences and Technology of Kashmir, Shalimar campus, Srinagar 191121 (J & K).    

Abstract: The electrophoretic profiles of alkaline phosphatase and amylase were realized using native-polyacrylamide gel electrophoresis in twelve bivoltine silkworm (Bombyx mori L.) genotypes viz. NB4D2, SH6, Meigitsu, CSR4, Sheiki II, Pampore-5, J122, J2M, 14M, JBEL, NJ3 and B38. The banding pattern of alkaline phosphatase showed a moderate degree of polymorphism. In all four bands and four isozymic forms were observed for the enzyme. The relative mobility ranged from 0.39-0.70 and the intensity score ranged from 3 in B38 to 8 in NB4D2. The profile of amylase revealed a total of four bands with good amount of qualitative polymorphism as seven isozymic forms were observed. The relative mobility ranged from 0.43-0.72 and the intensity score ranged from 1 in NB4D2 and SH6 to 3 in 14M, JBEL, NJ3 and B38.  Out of eight bands observed for these two isozymic systems, six were polymorphic. Moreover, the enzymes showed an appreciable range of relative mobility and activity, suggesting their usefulness as genetic markers for genotype identification. Further, the isozymes were also found associated with yield parameters viz. single cocoon weight, single shell weight, cocoon yield/10,000 larvae by number and cocoon yield/10,000 larvae by weight. Hence, these enzymes can be utilized in Marker Assisted Selection programmes for the improvement of silkworms.

Abstract: A total of 30 ejaculates from five adult Beetal bucks were collected to study the effect of different concentrations of vitamin E on quality of frozen buck semen. In the experiment each of 30 ejaculate was split into four equal parts and the first three parts were extended separately with Tris extender containing different concentrations of Vitamin E (2 mM, 6 mM and 8 mM) and in After removal of seminal plasma, the semen was primarily extended with Tris extender (1:5) considering the volume of semen prior to removal of seminal plasma and then split into four parts and finally extended with equal volume of Tris extender. The fourth part of the ejaculates was kept as control (0 mM). The semen characteristics viz. sperm motility, live sperm, live intact acrosome, HOST reacted sperm were recorded after equilibration and after freezing. Extracellular release of ALT and AST was recorded only after freezing. The mean sperm motility, live sperm, live intact acrosome, HOST-reacted sperm and extracellular release of ALT and AST was significantly higher (P<0.05) in Tris extender containing 2 mM concentration of Vitamin E than that containing 6 mM , 8 mM and control (0 mM). The percentages of sperm motility, live sperm, live intact acrosome, HOST-reacted sperm were 84.83 ± 0.17, 88.80 ± 0.35, 82.85 ± 0.21 and 72.53 ± 0.21, and 65.17 ± 0.30, 70.15 ± 0.35, 48.73 ± 0.36 and 55.47 ± 0.32 per cent after equilibration and after freezing with 2 mM concentration of Vitamin E. Extracellular release of ALT and AST was significantly (P<0.05) lower after freezing with 2 mM concentration of Vitamin E than others. It was concluded that supplementation of Tris extender with 2 mM Vitamin E resulted in significant improvement in quality of frozen Beetal buck semen as compared to other concentrations of vitamin E in the extender.

Abstract: The investigation was conducted to evaluate the therapeutic efficacy of different drugs in twenty four (n=24) buffaloes suffering from primary ketosis (screened out of 145 buffaloes). Primary ketotic animals were diagnosed on the basis of clinical signs (selective anorexia, drastic reduction in milk yield and absence of any other concurrent diseases) and two positive urine tests (Rothera’s test and Keto-Diastix strip test). These twenty four animals were divided into three groups. Group A buffaloes (n = 8) were treated with propylene glycol 220 g b.i.d. orally on 1st day followed by 100g once a day along with dexamethasone (7 mg/100 kg BW I/M.). Group B (n = 8) were treated with dextrose 20 percent (1 litre) intravenously along with triamcinolone acetonide @ 0.1 mg/kg BW I/M once daily. Group C (n = 8) were treated with dextrose 20 percent (1 litre) intravenously along with isoflupredone acetate @ 1.0 mg/30 kg BW I/M once daily. Hemato-biochemical study revealed significant alterations in the values of various parameters before and after the treatment.  The recovery time in group A animals was 4.88 ± 0.29 days, in group B animals was 4.12 ± 0.22 days and in group C animals was 3.00 ± 0.26 days. So comparative evaluation of three drugs combinations revealed better results for the therapeutic regimen dextrose (20 percent) along with isofluperadone acetate then combination of dextrose 20 percent along with triamcinolone acetonide and treatment of propylene glycol with dexamethasone.

Abstract: Photorhabdus luminescens is a gram negative symbiotic bacterium belonging to the family Enterobacteriaceae, and is a lethal pathogen of insects. It lives in the gut of an entomopathogenic nematode of the family Heterorhabditidae. When the nematode infects an insect, P. luminescensis released into the blood stream and rapidly kills the insect host by producing toxins. So the present study was carried out to isolate and characterize the bacterium Photorhabdus luminescens from entomopathogenic nematodes Heterorhabditis indica (Karnataka strain) collected from soils of V C farm Mandya (Karnataka agroclimatic Zone-6), Karnataka, India. A total of twenty nematodes were isolated from 30 soil samples by the use of 300 modified Galleria traps. The bacterium was isolated by streaking the heamolymph of the dead larva of Galleria on NBTA plates. The identification and characterization of the isolates was done by microscopic observation, biochemical and physiological characters like Gelatin liquefaction test, Catalase test, Lactose fermentation test, Urease test and Colony morphology studies on Nutrient agar, NBTA and Mac Conkey agar media. A total of eleven strains were characterized as P. luminescens and their molecular diversity analysis was done using Random Amplified Polymorphic DNA (RAPD) markers.

Abstract: Pesticide encompasses a variety of different types of chemicals including herbicides, insecticides, fungicides, and rodenticides. In which organo phosphate pesticides are widely used now a days. Microbial degradation become a suitable option because they use chlorpyrifos as a carbon source and degrade it. The experimental material was comprised of 45 chlorpyrifos degrading bacteria which were reduced down to 19 microbes by screening at 500ppm. These 19 chlorpyrifos degrading isolates were further characterized by molecular and their ability to degrade chlorpyrifos.  All isolates were characterized by RAPD and based on the RAPD result all 19 bacterial isolates were grouped in to 2 main clusters with 55% similarity. Characterization of chloropyrifos degrading gene was carried out by using specific primer. Out of 19 isolates, 7 cntained mpd gene and 10 isolates were containing opd gene while remaining 02 isolates which did not show amplification with opd/ mpd primer so it may contain other unreported gene responsible for chloropyrifos degradation. Isolates were identified based on 16s rRNA sequence and one highly efficient bacterium selected for genome characterization.  

Key words: Chloropyrifos, opd/mpd genes

Department of Biochemistry, College of Veterinary Sciences and Animal Husbandry, Orissa University of Agriculture and Technology, Bhubaneswar 751003, Odisha.   

Abstract: The aim of the  study was to investigate the thrombolytic activity of Punica granatum and Azadirachta indica over canine, bovine, caprine and avian blood clot using streptokinase and water as positive and negative control respectively. Using an in vitro thrombolytic model, the clot lysis activity of A. indica was observed as 48.06±0.59%, 50.01±1%, 47.6±0.69% and 28.03±0.35% and of P. granatum as 44.73±0.65%, 48.53±0.56%, 43.83±0.6% and 47.17±0.32% in cattle, dog, goat, poultry respectively. The percentage (%) clot lysis was statistically significant (p<0.05) when compared with vehicle control whereas streptokinase showed clot lysis 43.13±0.9%, 58.4±0.72%, 55.07±0.58% and 44.67±0.65%  respectively. We observed that these herbal extracts possess thrombolytic properties that could lyse blood clots in vitro. However, in vivo clot dissolving properties and active component(s) of these extracts for clot lysis are observed to be protein in nature as the protein extract of Azadirachta indica exhibits different protein bands between 16.6 to 90.4 kda where as that of Punica granatum exhibits only 2 bands of 10.9 and 17.3 kDa MW. So the individual components from these bands can be used for further research.

Abstract: A thermophilic bacterium Paenibacillus barengoltzii MS11 producing extracellular thermostable lipase was isolated from Manikaran hot water spring of Himachal Pradesh (India). Till date there is no report in literature about thermostable lipase produced by Paenibacillus barengoltzii. MS11 strain was studied morphologically and biochemically, followed by sequencing of its 16S rRNA gene. BLASTn search analysis of the sequence showed maximum identity with Paenibacillus barengoltzii (NR 042756.1) and the G+C content was found to be 58.7%. Paenibacillus barengoltzii MS11 bacterial isolate was quantitatively screened for lipase activity and the maximum lipase activity was achieved at 48 hours of incubation period, with the pH 7.5 at 65ºC. The lipase enzyme from Paenibacillus barengoltzii MS11 was purified by using precipitate of saturation (NH4)2SO4, and Sephadex G-100 column, and the molecular mass of the enzyme was determined by SDS-PAGE. The study confirmed that the isolated Paenibacillus barengoltzii MS11 to be a true thermophile and could be a source of thermostable lipase which can be exploited for pharmaceutical and industrial applications.

Farm Science Centre (KVK), Senapati Distt., P.O. Kangpokpi 795129  (Manipur).  

Abstract: Rooted cuttings of four local chrysanthemum cultivars were irradiated with 10, 20 and 30 Gy gamma rays to induce favourable variation. Lower doses of gamma irradiation resulted in homeosis and induced encouraging novelties while the higher doses often induced high degree of abnormalities and consequent mortality. Colour novelties induced by the mutagens were isolated in vitro and purified by RAPD techniques. Out of twenty primers screened, eight were selected on the basis of robustness of amplification, reproducibility, scorability of banding patterns and were employed for differentiating mutants.  The Jaccard Coefficients was used to calculate the genetic similarity. The genetic distance in the distance matrix ranged from 0.42 – 0.67 percent. Our findings suggested that by using RAPD markers the lately developed chrysanthemum cultivars are distinct from their parents and the mutants are reliable.

Seed Technology Division, Indian Grassland and Fodder Research Institute, Jhansi 284003 (UP) 

Abstract: An efficient Agrobacterium infiltration method for mature embryonic axis of hexaploid wheat was developed in order to improve the transformation frequency. Sonication-assisted Agrobacterium-mediated transformation (SAAT), along with other cultural parameters were optimized in a conventional ‘dipping’style method of Agrobacterium inoculation. It was observed that the transient expression of uidA gene is raised with increase in duration of SAAT and acetosyringone concentration. However, this increase in GUS expression was not significant after 5 minutes of SAAT and 200µM of acetosyringone respectively. Finally, to validate the applicability of the optimized protocol, we transformed the commercial hexaploid wheat cultivar PBW343 with cassette containing hpt as selectable marker and our test gene of interest.  PCR and Southern blot analysis of T0 plants with test (dps) gene and hpt gene confirmed the applicability of the optimized parameters.

Abstract: The present study was conducted on the tongue of 18 goat foetii divided into three prenatal age groups to study the sequential events in regard to histological development of  conical and lenticular papillae of the same in goat foetii. The primitive conical papillae were seen over the torus linguae in 62 days old goat foetus (CRL= 10.10 cm), which further differentiated at 80 days of gestation (CRL= 15.30 cm), to become fully developed at 146 days of gestation (CRL= 35.50 cm). The primitive lenticular papillae were seen distributed over the lingual epithelium at torus linguae from 62 days of gestational age (CRL= 10.10 cm). These papillae had a broad shape and lined by a basal layer of cuboidal cells with a superficial layer of 6-7 cells. The height and diameter of these papillae were found to be 41.03 ± 2.33 μ and 43.22 ± 4.12 μ in group I and 78.45± 4.83 μ and 98.67± 5.93 μ in goat foetii of group II, respectively. In group III, the mean values for height and diameter of the conical papillae were recorded to be 211.78 ± 9.73 μ and 298.34 ± 22.13 μ, respectively. The same values in regard to the lenticular papillae were found to be 201.67 μ ± 8.91 and 324.11± 29.73 μ, respectively.

Abstract: Development of an organism in different stage is controlled largely by a small non coding RNA called MicroRNA (miRNA). Regulation of gene expression in developmental processes is an important aspect of miRNA function.  The genes are expressed at defined stages of development and determine the body plan pattern of the growing embryo. Real time expression analysis of RAC1genes after Knockdown of the gga-miR-142-3p on the immune and visceral organs of developing chicken embryo opens the new avenue towards understanding function of these gene involved in cell structure, size, shape, maturation and  migration. Bioinformatic analysis of targets prediction reveled that RAC1 gene has the complimentary seed sequence for miR-142-3p at their 3’UTR. In the present study, the knock down of gga-miR-142-3p was carried out at 14 days old embryonated eggs of chicken by intravenous inoculation of LNA modified miRNA inhibitor keeping scramble control group. Expression analysis of targeted genes was carried out by using the SYBR green qPCR technology revealed that RAC1 gene was up-regulated in bursa, thymus, spleen, heart, kidney and was down regulated in lungs as compared to scramble control. The histopathological studies of immune organs reveals loss of thymic follicle in the thymus and loss of lymphocytic population in spleen as compared to the scramble control. The result of the present study suggests that gga-miR-142-3p is required for normal developments of immune organs and other organs. An aberrant expression of RAC1 may leads to disturbance in migration of T and B cells resulting in pathological outcomes in the organs during the embryonic developments.

Abstract: Present study was carried out to investigate genetic polymorphism of TLR2 gene of exon 1 and exon 2 and their association with subclinical mastitis in Jersey crossbred cattle by PCR- RFLP. Blood samples were collected from 60 randomly selected, lactating Jersey crossbred cattle in which 30 animals were suffering from either subclinical or clinical mastitis from Nandini Sperm Station farm Hessarghatta, Bengaluru and local farm maintained by farmers in and around Namakkal district of Tamil Nad. DNA was isolated by phenol chloroform isoamyl alcohol method. PCR standardization was carried out for amplification of region of exon1, exon 2.2. exon 2.3, exon 2.4, exon 2.5 and exon 2.6 using published primers [1]. PCR – RFLP was carried out using HaeIII, Mn II, Hinc II, EcoRV, PStI and Bsty I restriction enzymes respectively. Sequence analysis showed 10 single nucleotide polymorphism in the coding region of TLR 2 gene, which includes 5 transitions (G11456A exon 2.3), (C12153T, C 12260T, T12471C, T12501C exon 2.5) and 5 transversions (G11391T, T11424A exon 2.3), (A12225C G12228T C12441G exon 2.5). Though exonic regions of the studied gene showed monomorphic patterns, however sequence analysis showed the role of toll like receptor 2 gene towards subclinical mastitis could not be established.

Division of  Veterinary Anatomy, Himachal Pradesh Krishi Vishvvidlaya, Palampur  176 061, Himachal Pradesh.  

Abstract: Histological studies of skin from dorsal regions of neck, thorax and loin of body were carried out on eight healthy Gaddi sheep foeti, which were collected from local slaughter houses of Palampur (H.P). After measurement of crown-rump length (CRL), the age of foeti were determined.  Skin tissue samples were collected, fixed (10% neutral buffered formalin), processed, sectioned and finally stained to study their histological developmental changes. Differentiation of epidermis took place from an ectoderm germinal cell layer and rate of differentiation and growth of epidermis was fast in neck dorsal region than other two regions under study. At CRL 16.4 cm appearance of collagen fibers, sweat glands and elastic fibers was also observed. The sebaceous glands were seen at CRL 19.8 cm. At CRL 24.5 increase of collagen fiber synthesis deep in dermis was seen; this process caused the dermis to contain two layers: the superficial layer (papillary layer) and deep layer (reticular layer). All sub-layers of epidermis were developed along with the cells of hair follicles. The number and growth of sweat glands was higher in thorax dorsal region than other two regions under study. The thickness of epidermis and dermis increased with advancement of gestational age. At CRL 42.4 cm, the structure of the skin was complete. The reaction for bound lipids was intense in epidermis and moderate in dermis with Sudan black B stain. Fine reticular fibers were seen around sweat, sebaceous and hair follicles. Strong PAS positive reaction was seen in outer layer and moderate in the inner layer of hair follicles. With the advancement of gestational age the PAS reaction changed from mild to intense and from mild to moderate in epidermis and dermis respectively.

Age associated variations in lymphocytic growth hormone secretion in cattle

Rose, M.K. and Gupta, M.

Department of Veterinary Physiology and Biochemistry, College of Veterinary Sciences Lal Lajpat Rai University of Veterinary and Animal Sciences, Hisar 125004, Haryana. 

Abstract: The lymphocytic growth hormone (GH) and nitric oxide (NO) levels were studied among three different age groups of cattle viz. cyclic adult cows (3-8 years of age), young female calves (2 weeks old) and growing female calves (6 months old). The effects of leptin, sodium nitroprusside (SNP) and N-nitro-L-arginine methyl ester (L-NAME) on the secretion of lymphocytic GH and NO were also studied. Lymphocytic GH in young calves (90.92±6.21 ng/12 million lymphocytes) and growing calves (86.15±9.94 ng/12 million lymphocytes) were significantly higher than in adult cows (59.42±3.92 ng/12 million lymphocytes) without any significant change in lymphocytic NO secretion with age. Incubation of lymphocytes with SNP could significantly increase lymphocytic GH secretion only in adult cows, while in 6 months old calves it significantly reduced the lymphocytic NO secretion. Thus suggesting that in young calves the secretion of lymphocytic GH is independent of leptin and NO dependent mechanism. 

Key words: Growth Hormone, Lymphocyte, Cattle.

Main Sugarcane Research Station, Navsari Agriculture University, Navsari- 396 450 Gujarat.  

Abstract: A rapid micro propagation and acclimatization response of two different varieties of sugarcane (CoN 07072 and CoN 05071) was obtained in this study. The shoot apical meristem of different sizes was cultured on MS medium supplemented with different concentrations and combinations of BAP and kinetin either alone or in combination with each other alongwith GA3. Best shoot formation response in CoN 07072 was obtained on MS medium containing 2mg/l BAP while in CoN 05071 the combination of 1 mg/l BAP with 1 mg/l Kinetin showed best shoot formation response from apical meristem. Meristem of 3.0 mm size proved to be the best size for micropropagation of sugarcane. Excellent multiplication response of In vitro formed shoots was obtained when the concentration of BAP was decreased to 1.5 mg/l in CoN 7072 and 0.25 mg/l BAP & Kin in CoN 05071 (i.e. 0.25 mg/l BAP + 0.25 mg/l Kinetin). MS medium containing 1.0 mg/l NAA and 2.0 mg/l IBA showed 100% rooting response of In vitro regenerated shoots of both the varieties of sugarcane within eight days of inoculation. Best hardening response was obtained in Sand+ Soil + Pressmud (1:1:1) media.
