    Abstract

    Silver nitrate effectively promoted shoot regeneration in wheat (Triticum aestivum L.) callus cultures derived from immature embryos. This effect could be observed in both weakly and strongly regenerating cultivars, and in using material from both field and greenhouse grown plants. The role of silver ions as an inhibitor of ethylene action was supported by a reversal of the inhibitory effects of 2,4-D and ethylene on morphogenesis in wheat callus cultures.Enhancement of shoot regeneration by silver nitrate was also observed in callus cultures of non-regenerating or weakly regenerating mutants of Nicotiana plumbaginifolia Viv. derived from cell cultures.
