  Abstract:  VIEW PDF: IN VITRO ORGANOGENESIS OF AMARANTHUS RETROFLEXUS L. WITH BIOTECHNOLOGICAL APPLICATIONS IN GLYCEROL DEGRADATION

Glycerol is a secondary product from biodiesel production that is transformed in other useful compounds for polymer industry. The two enzymes that are involved in this process are lipase and decarboxylase. Our experiments used a very robust plant species (Amaranthus retroflexus), that grows on different types of substrate and in a variety of stress conditions (drought, frost, flooding, etc.) to test its survival on culture media with carbon source replaced by glycerol. After aseptic seed germination, plantlets were grown on a calus induction culture medium Gamborg (MS basal medium enriched with NAA and Kinetin). The non-morphogenetic calus obtained was cultivated on four variants with ascending the quantity of glycerol replacing the sucrose as a carbon source.
