Abstract

Medical plants are important source of material for the pharmaceutical industry because some of the secondary metabolites that they syntheses cannot be produced artificially. Tissue cultures and micropropagation are plant biotechnology tools that offer many advantages for production of medical plants over the conventional methods. In this study, medical plants lavender (Lavandula vera L.), lemon balm (Melissa officinalis L.), chamomile (Matricaria chamomilla L.), St John's wort (Hypericum perforatum L.) and sage (Salvia officinalis L.) were subject of study for micropropagation in different media supplied with different combination of growth regulators. Commercially available seeds were used as starting material for the species lavender and sage, while seeds collected from local populations were used as starting material for chamomile and St John's wort. Lemon balm was micropropagated through leaves. The starting material from the medical species which is subject of the current research was micropropagated either on MS media or modified MS media supplied with different concentrations of growth regulators. During the experiment, different combinations of growth regulators and different type of initial explants showed different results in proliferation, callus and shoots formation.
