In vitro propagation of pharmaceutical and endangered medicinal plants- a mini review
Keywords:In vitro regeneration, micro propagation, callus, medicinal plants
Peoples and communities gain significantly from the use of medicinal herbs. The medicinal potential of these plants is related to the huge number of chemical compounds that have a specific physiological effect on the human body. Herbal drugs and phytonutrients, also known as nutraceuticals, are growing more popular around the world. The conventional strategy of propagation is the most popular and takes a very long time to multiply due to the low rate of fruit set, poor germination, and clonal homogeneity is not always preserved via seeds. Using optimal in vitro settings, elite plants may be rapidly multiplied to create pharmacognostic material delivering essential metabolites and also produce disease-free plants. This review summarises research on in vitro propagation methods established for medicinal plants, to use this technology to mass-produce medicinal plants that have been over-exploited.
