Chlorophylls are some of the most important chelates in nature. They are capable of channelling the energy of sunlight into potential chemical energy through the process of photosynthesis. Photosynthesis is complex biological
process which occurs in in vitro conditions too, but in alternative pathways on biosynthesis of photosynthetic pigments.
The purpose of our examinations was to evaluate the content of photosynthetic pigments chlorophyll a, b and a+b in the pepper culture Capsicum annuum L. of the varieties Kurtovska Kapija and Golden Medal on the MS (Murashige and Skoog) medium, especially in shoot culture, culture of
callus from meristem and callus, and as well as cotyledon culture. All pepper tissue cultures were subject of investigation regarding the effect of plant grown regulators on in vitro synthesis of photosynthetic pigments.
