Effect of Different Cellulase and Pectinase Enzyme Treatments on Protoplast Isolation and Viability in Lilium ledebeourii Bioss.
AbstractFor overcoming interspecific incompatibility, protoplast combination method is a proper procedure for making a new plant withdesired traits. For this purpose, protoplast preparation is a first and important step. Hence, experiments were conducted to evaluatevarious combinations of cellulose, pectinase and their treatment times on protoplast production and protoplast viability in Liliumledebeourii Bioss. The results of experiment revealed that the protoplast yield was significantly affected by different treatment levels.Cellulase at 4% gave the highest numbers of protoplasts at 3.71Ã—105 protoplast/g FW. Pectinase at 1% gave the highest numbers ofprotoplast. For treatment times, the highest yield of protoplast was with leaf explants treated for 24 h. Analysis of variance indicated thatconcentration, time and three-way interaction of cellulase, pectinase and time were significant at p<0.01. Cellulase at 4% and pectinase at0.2% for 24 h gave the highest viability. Interactions of cellulase Ã— pectinase, cellulase Ã— time, pectinase Ã— time and cellulase Ã— pectinaseÃ— treatment time were significant at Pâ‰¤0.05 for protoplast number. The highest and lowest protoplast numbers were produced in mediacontaining 4% cellulase and 1% pectinase for 24 h (6.65Ã—105 protoplast/g FW) and 1% cellulase and 0.2% pectinase for 12 h, respectively.Itâ€™s concluded that, the best treatment for isolation of Lilium protoplast was 4% cellulase and 1% pectinase for 24 h.
