Sample text

In a few cases calcium gluconate has been used instead of inorganic calcium salts to increase the calcium concentration in the medium (De Block 1990). Some media are low in calcium, the Litvay medium used for conifers being an example (Teasdale et al. 1986). However, this medium is high in boron and magnesium which, in part, compensates for the low calcium level (Teasdale et al. 1986, Teasdale and Richards 1990). In cell suspension cultures of Pinus radiata there is a strong interaction between calcium, boron and magnesium.

4. Microelements The quantitative requirements for different microelements are often difficult to determine. Microelements leach into the medium from the glass of culture vessels. They are also present in agar and as contaminants in many of the chemicals that are added to the nutrient medium. Therefore, trace elements are often present in excess amounts in the culture medium. The amounts may vary from experiment to experiment depending on whether old or new glassware is used. This could lead to some variation in response in successive experiments.

1986, Teasdale and Richards 1990). In cell suspension cultures of Pinus radiata there is a strong interaction between calcium, boron and magnesium. It has been suggested that there is a critical acceptor-molecule which requires binding with both calcium and boron for activity. Magnesium competitively displaces the calcium on this binding site (Teasdale and Richards 1990). Calcium deficiencies have been reported in cultures of several hardwood tree species (McCown and Sellmer 1987, Singh a et al.
