Solanum tuberosum, tuber formation, kinetine (KIN), sucrose, potato, microtuber, in vitro, gene-knockout


In order to create a system of seed production of potatoes in the short of period, it is necessary to improve the formation of in vitro microtubers. The formation of microtubers when 5 mg / l kinetin was added to the MS feed showed the best performance. Normal MS feed did not produce microtubers in vitro. The formation of microtubers in the dark state was better than in the light state. The combination of MS + 8% sucrose + 5 mg / l kinetin was the best indicator for the formation of in vitro microtubers studied.
