PowerPoint Presentation

Soil salinity is one of the most important abiotic stresses that limit crop production. Responses of six breeding lines of tomato (Solanum lycopersicumL.) to NaCl stress were studied in callus induction. Hypocotyl and cotyledon segments were chosen as explants for callus inductionin vitro. The six investigated tomato genotypes differed in their callus growth. Tomato seeds were cultured for callus formation and that callus were treated with different NaCl concentrations in nutrient solutions. The effect of the stress applied on the callus was evaluated after 10days and 17days. Different salt concentrations significantly affected the biomass callus size and callus weight of tomato. G6 showed better performance under high salt concentrations but not at low salt concentrations. It indicates the expression of functional genes occur at high salt stress. However, it is possible to select callus line tolerant to elevated levels of NaCl stress by sudden exposure to high of NaCl, accordingly a NaCl tolerant cell line was selected from hypocotyls and cotyledon derived callus of tomato which proved to be a true cell line variant. The interaction effect of variety and treatment revealed that genotype G6 and G1 were the highest and lowest performer respectively. These findings indicated some salt tolerant tomato genotypes which will be promising for regeneration and for future breeding program. It is quiet necessary to assay accumulation of proline and the anti-oxidant enzymes from the control and stressed callus as they are the indicator of salt tolerance. It is evident that tissue culture technique was able to evaluate several genotypes for salt tolerance into cell level under controlled environment with relatively little space and less time required comparing with such process studies at the whole plant level.ABSTRACTOBJECTIVES.

Poster no. 1100-093-YHigh salinity is one of the major stress factors among the abiotic stresses. As saline soils and saline waters are common around the world, great effort has been devoted to understanding physiological aspects of tolerance to salinity in plants and it serves as a basis for plant breeders to develop salinity-tolerant genotypes. For in vitro selection of callus line, six genotypes of tomato were taken for this study. G6 exhibited better performance under high salt concentrations i.e., at 100 mM and 200 mM but not at low salt concentrations. It indicates the expression of functional genes occurs at high salt stress. It can also be concluded that, the salt tolerant callus line could overcome the adverse effect of NaCl and genotype G6 exhibited better growth on NaCl supplemented medium when compared to salt sensitive callus lines like G1 and G5. This study dealt with an optimize protocol for callus induction and in vitro selection of salt tolerant callus lines in tomato and could be made the progress of regeneration followed by gene expression analysis and thereby identify and isolate the genes involved in the process of salt tolerance for future genetic transformation.BSeeds from six different genotypes named G1 (BD-7755), G2 (BD-7757), G3 (BD-9008), G4 (BD-9011), G5 (BD-10122), G6 (BD-10123) were taken as plant materials. MS medium, Sterilizing chemicals (Sodium hypo chlorite NaOCl, 70% ethanol), Sucrose, Agar, NaOH (10 N, 1N), HCl, KCl (3M), NaCl (laboratory grade), Absolute Ethanol, Ethanol (70%), Methylated spirit, NAA (1-Naphthaleneacetic acid ), BAP (6Benzylaminopurine), etc were used for this experiment as chemical. Three types of medium were used in this experiment. Seeds were inoculated in MS (Murashige and Skoog) medium without any hormone supplement for seed germination. MS medium supplemented with 2 mg/l of BAP and 0.2 g/l of NAA for callus induction. Finally, MS medium as 2. supplemented with different salt concentrations (0 mM, 50 mM, 100 mM, 150 mM and 200 mM) for salt stress treatment. Fig 1: Seed inoculation and Incubation. A.

Mean biomass weight at 17 DATSize and weight of callus of six genotypes were recorded at 10 DAT (Days After Treatment) and at 17 DAT in different NaCl concentrations and significant results were found. Reduction in growth with increasing salinity in growth media may be attributed to water deficit or ion toxicity associated with excessive ion uptake particularly of [Na.sup.+] and [Cl.sup.-] (Satti and Lopez, 1994) and that happened with all genotypes in the experiment. G6 and G2 showed better performance compared to other genotypes. Marthinez et al. (1996) reported a positive relationship between proline accumulation and NaCl tolerance in potato (Mohamed et al., 2007). Proline protects hydration shell in the cell and helps protect from denaturation of proteins. With increasing of NaCl, the proline content of all cultivars significantly increased in the study of Aazami et al. (2010). G1 and G5 were more sensitive to salt under different concentrations. G3 and G4 also exhibited significant performance in low salt concentrations like 50mM but not in higher salt concentrations.

Title, Authors, and AffiliationsStart designing your poster by adding the title, the names of the authors, and the affiliated institutions. You can type or paste text into the provided boxes. The template will automatically adjust the size of your text to fit the title box. You can manually override this feature and change the size of your text.

TIP: The font size of your title should be bigger than your name(s) and institution name(s).

Adding Logos / SealsMost often, logos are added on each side of the title. You can insert a logo by dragging and dropping it from your desktop, copy and paste or by going to INSERT > PICTURES. Logos taken from web sites are likely to be low quality when printed. Zoom it at 100% to see what the logo will look like on the final poster and make any necessary adjustments.

TIP: See if your schools logo is available on our free poster templates page.

Photographs / GraphicsYou can add images by dragging and dropping from your desktop, copy and paste, or by going to INSERT > PICTURES. Resize images proportionally by holding down the SHIFT key and dragging one of the corner handles. For a professional-looking poster, do not distort your images by enlarging them disproportionally.
