Combined efficiency of iron nanoparticles (IONPs) and salicylic acid (SA) on in vitro propagation of date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) under combined drought and salinity

Drought and salinity are the most important environmental factors that hamper agricultural productivity worldwide. Several adaptations and mitigation strategies are needed to deal with both stresses. The objective of the study was to determine the effect of the iron nanoparticles (IONPs) and salicylic acid (SA) under combined drought and salt stresses (DS) (PEG6000 + NaCl) on growth and some biochemical constituents of date palm cv Barhee cultured in vitro. The optimal combination was 1 mg L−1 IONPs and 50 mg L−1 SA. Such a combination under DS improved the callus growth and increased its weight to 219 mg. This combination also showed the highest response rate and the number of shoots per jar (55.65% and 6.80, respectively). The addition of IONPs and SA to the medium was most effective on the contents of organic solutes (soluble sugar, soluble protein, and proline), where the best results (4.213, 2.37, and 1.42) mgg−1 respectively, were obtained using 1 mg L−1 IONPs and 50 mg L−1 SA ap

  • Effects of dicamba and casein hydrolysate on in vitro growthand shoot regeneration of date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) cv. Barhee
    Ahmed Z.R. Al-Asadi, Ahmed M.W. Al-Mayahi, and Khairullah M. Awad

    Walter de Gruyter GmbH
    Abstract The investigation was carried out to evaluate the influence of the dicamba (3,6-Dichloro-2-methoxybenzoic acid) (DIC) and casein hydrolysate (CH) on the callus growth, shoot multiplication, and some biochemical constituents of date palm cv. Barhee cultured in vitro. Both DIC and CH were required for callus growth and shoots regeneration. The medium supplemented with 4.0 mg l−1 DIC in combination with 1.0 g l−1 CH gave the highest callus weight (287 mg), while the maximum response rate and the number of shoots per jar (86.67% and 15.07 shoots/jar) were found in MS media equipped with 4 mg l−1 DIC and 0.5 mg l−1 CH combination. The total amount of phenolic compounds was significantly reduced to 0.82 and 0.79 mg GAE g–1 in shoots cultured in the medium equipped with 4.0 mg l−1 DIC with 0.5 and 1.0 g l−1 CH, which is reflected in the rate of browning. The results showed that the highest shoots content of endogenous IAA (3.71 and 3.50 μg g−1), were obtained in response to 4 mg l−1 DIC + 1.0 g l−1 CH and 4.0 mg l−1 DIC + 0.5 g l−1 CH, respectively. The macronutrient K, P, Ca, and free amino acids content significantly increased in the in vitro shoots regenerated on the media supplemented with 4.0 mg l−1 DIC + 1.0 g l−1 CH. The genetic stability of this study was confirmed by the DNA-based fingerprinting method RAPD. The RAPD binding patterns indicated no variation among tissue culture-derived plants. The in vitro propagation protocol described herein can be introduced to the production of genetically stable date palm plants.

    Springer Science and Business Media LLC
    Abstract Background Mass propagation of date palm has attracted the interest of commercial producers. However, this technique still faces many obstacles that hinder production. This study investigated the effect of chitosan (CHT) at various concentrations for the possibility to apply it in combination with thidiazuron (TDZ) on the growth and development of tissue cultures of Barhee cultivar. Results The results showed that CHT and TDZ on in vitro proliferation of Barhee date palm cultivar were significant. The highest response rate and the number of shoots per jar were found in MS media supplemented with 15 mgL–1 CHT and 0.5 mgL–1 TDZ combination. Furthermore, we found that the combined application between 20 mg L−1 CHT+ 1.0 mg L−1 TDZ resulted in the highest shoots content of endogenous IAA, compared with other treatments. At the same time, the data revealed that the maximum cytokinins (CKs) content of shoots occurred in a medium supplemented with 15 mg L−1 CHT and 0.5 mg L−1 TDZ. The genetic stability of the discussed micropropagation protocol was confirmed in this study by DNA-based technique RAPD (random amplified polymorphic DNA). The results may indicate that the micropropagation protocol developed in this research paper was appropriate and applicable for producing genetically stable date palm cv Barhee plants. Conclusion Applying the strategy of culture treatment with (CHT) and (TDZ) can be valuable for improving the propagation of date palm cv Barhee in vitro.



  • In vitro plant regeneration system for date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.): effect of chelated iron sources
    Ahmed Madi Waheed Al-Mayahi

    Springer Science and Business Media LLC
    Abstract Background Iron chelate sources and their concentrations are important factors in in vitro propagation of date palm. This study’s objective was to investigate the effect of the iron chelated form on the growth and development of tissue cultures of Barhee cultivar. Results The addition of FeEDDHA to the culture medium was more effective than FeEDTA on callus growth, shoot regeneration, and the number of shoots per jar, where the best result (220.8mg callus, 86.67% and 17.2 shoots per jar, respectively) was obtained by using 93.5 mg L−1 FeEDDHA (5.6 mg L−1 Fe), compared with other treatments. The results also indicate that using 93.5 mg L−1 FeEDDHA (5.6 mg L−1 Fe) as a supplement can decrease antioxidant enzymes CAT and POD activity compared to the rest of the treatments. Medium equipped with 187.0 mg L−1 FeEDDHA (11.2 mg L−1Fe) had the highest rooting percentage and number of roots per shoot than other treatments. The biochemical analysis results showed that treatments with FeEDDHA of 280.5 mg L−1 (16.8 mg L−1 Fe) and 187.0 mg L−1 (11.2 mg L−1Fe) significantly increased the iron content. The results showed that shoot maximum chlorophyll and endogenous IAA level content were recorded in a medium supplemented with 187.0 mg L−1 FeEDDHA (11.2 mg L−1Fe) as Fe source. Conclusion FeEDDHA used in the present study was proven to be a promising iron chelate source in comparison with the FeEDTA sources.

  • Effects of different types of gelling agents on in vitro organogenesis and some physicochemical properties of date palm buds, Showathy cv.
    Ahmed Madi Waheed Al-Mayahi and Abdulminam Hussian Ali

    Walter de Gruyter GmbH
    Abstract Some obstacles are associated with in vitro propagation of date palm, such as explant tissue browning, slow callus growth and development, low organogenesis and multiplication efficiency, and frequent tissue vitrification. This investigation studied the effect of five types of gelling agents (Danish Agar, Cero Agar Type 8952, Chile Agar, Gerlite Food Grade, and Agar-Agar.) on in vitro regeneration and bud multiplication of Phoenix dactylifera L. cv. Showathy. The results showed that the highest percentages of callus producing buds and average bud formation (77.78%, 11.5 buds, and 72.23%, 10.9 buds) were obtained in response to 7 g l–1 Danish Agar and Cero Agar Type 8952, respectively. A decrease in browning percentage was observed in tissues cultured in the medium gelled with Danish Agar. Observations showed that Danish Agar and Cero Agar Type 8952 eliminated also shoot vitrification. Compared with other treatments, the total amount of phenolic compounds was significantly reduced to 0.79 and 0.82 mg GAE/g in buds cultured in the media gelled with Danish Agar and Cero Agar Type 8952, respectively. The macronutrient phosphor, calcium, sodium, and micronutrient boron and copper significantly increased in the in vitro shoots regenerated on the media gelled with Danish Agar and Cero Agar Type 8952.

  • The effect of humic acid (HA) and zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO-NPS) on in vitro regeneration of date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) cv. Quntar
    Ahmed Madi Waheed Al-Mayahi

    Springer Science and Business Media LLC
    Date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) micropropagation still faces many problems, such as reduced growth and development of callus, low multiplication efficiency and low rooting rate. The effect of Humic Acid (HA; 0, 0.5, 2.5, and 5.0 mg L−1) and Zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnONPs; 0, 50, 75 and 150 mg L−1) at different stages of micropropagation (i.e., callus establishment, shoot multiplication and rooting) was studied in date palm cv. Quntar. Media supplemented with 2.5 mg L−1 HA in combination with 50 m L−1 ZnO-NPs gave the highest callus induction (274 mg/jar), the highest percentage of callus producing buds (83.34%), and average bud formation (14.2) per callus. The macronutrients Nitrogen (N), Phosphorus (P), Potassium (K), Sulfur (S) as well the micronutrient Zinc (Zn), significantly increased in in vitro shoots regenerated in medium containing of 2.5 mg L−1 HA and 50 mg L−1 ZnO-NPs compared to other treatments. The addition of HA and ZnO-NPs to the medium was most effective in root regeneration and the number of roots per shoot, where the best result (83.34%, 4.4 roots per shoot, respectively) was obtained using 2.5 mg L−1 humic acid and 75 mg of L−1 zinc oxide (ZnO-NPs), compared with other treatments. These results also indicate that using 2.5 mg L−1 HA combined with 75 m L−1 ZnO-NPs as a supplement can increase antioxidant enzymes CAT and POD compared with other treatments. The data revealed that maximum chlorophyll content of shoots occurred in a medium supplemented with 2.5 mg L−1 HA and 75 mg L−1 ZnO-NPs. Furthermore, we found that the combined application between 2.5 mg L−1 HA + 75 mg L−1 ZnO-NPS resulted in the highest shoots content of endogenous IAA (3.644 µg.kg−1), compared with other treatments. We have established a highly efficient micropropagation system for date palm by using (HA) and zinc oxide nanoparticles (ZnO-NPS). The initiation, broad optimization, and comprehensive phytochemical studies of tissue cultures were elaborated.

    Ahmed Madi Waheed Al-Mayahi, Osama Nazim Jafar, and Khaun Ali Mohsen

    Walter de Gruyter GmbH
    Abstract The investigation was carried out to evaluate the influence of glutathione (GSH: levels 0, 0.1, 0.5 1.0, and 2.0 mM) on the callus growth, shoot multiplication and phytochemicals of in vitro shoots of the Date palm cv. Barhee. The optimum concentration of GSH was 1.0 mM. Such concentration improved the callus growth and increased its weight to 312.0 mg, the addition of this substance of the same concentration level showed the highest response rate and the number of shoots per jar (73.34 ± 2.69 and 8.83 ± 0.80 shoots/jar, respectively). Also, the 1.0 GSH application resulted in reducing the percentage of browning to 0.0 compared to the other concentrations. The results of the biochemical analysis revealed that treatments GSH of 0.1, 0.5 and 1.0 mM reduced the total soluble phenols compound (TSPC). These treatments were also more effectively reducing peroxidase (POD) and phenylalanine ammonia-lyase (PAL) activity than the concentrations of 2 mM or 0 (control treatment).

    Khairullah Awad

    Scientific Journal of King Faisal University
    Microbial contaminants are the major challenges in plant’s in vitro propagation during different stages of culture processes, ZnO-NPs exhibit attractive antibacterial properties due to increased specific surface area as the reduced particle size leading to enhanced particle surface reactivity. The aim of present study was to evaluate the effect of ZnO NPs on microbial contamination; vitrification and growth promoting of date palm cultured tissues. Several concentrations of ZnO NPs were selected to assess their activity. The percentage of shoot formation, the number of proliferated shoot and the percentage of contamination of cultures were investigated, as well as several biochemical characteristics. Twofold of increase multiplication rate of proliferated shoot was observed in ZnO NPs at 150 mg L−1 compared to control treatment. The multiplication rate was 46.6% at control and increased significantly to 86.67% and 93.34% in ZnO NPs before and after sterilisation, respectively. No microbial contamination and vitrification were observed at all ZnO NP treatments compared with control treatment. Biochemical analysis showed that ZnO NPs had no toxic effects at all examined concentrations on date palm cultured tissues. A positive effect was observed in carbohydrates, protein and amino acid accumulations at high ZnO concentration (150 mg l−1). The results provide basis for the application of ZnO NPs in media date palm tissue cultures at 150 mg l−1.

    Ahmed Madi Waheed Al-Mayahi

    Canadian Science Publishing
    There are some major obstacles in practical applications of date palm tissue culture in the laboratory such as reduced number of shoots, vitrification of tissues, and browning of cultured tissues. The objective of the present study is to determine the effect of boron (B) and calcium (Ca) on enhancing organogenesis of buds from callus, shoot multiplication, and phytochemicals of in vitro cultures of date palm ‘Barhee’. Addition of calcium chloride and boric acid to the medium was most effective on callus for shoot regeneration and number of shoots per jar, where the best result (88.89%, 8.2 shoots per jar, respectively) was obtained by using 660 mg L−1 Ca + 9.3 mg L−1 B, compared with other treatments. It was observed that the interaction between 660 mg L−1 Ca + 9.3 mg L−1 B resulted in the highest tissue content of B [(4.75 mg L−1 dry weight (DW)]. The highest medium calcium chloride level (880 mg L−1) increased Ca content in the shoots. The combined application had the effect in reducing the vitrification. Application of Ca and B induced synthesis of proteins bands with molecular weights of 88.0, 55.6, 52.8, 43.0, 41.1, 38.3, 28.3, and 16.6 KDa in a medium supplemented with 660 mg L−1 Ca + 9.3 mg L−1 B.

    Ahmed Madi Waheed Al-Mayahi

    Walter de Gruyter GmbH
    Abstract This study was carried out to evaluate the effect of different concentrations of aluminum: (25, 50 and 100 mg l−1 of aluminum chloride AlCl3. 6H2O) on the enhancement of shoot multiplication, phytochemicals, as well as, antioxidant enzyme activity of in vitro cultures of the date palm cv. Um-Aldehin. The addition of aluminum in a concentration of 50 mg l−1 to the medium exhibited most effects on shoots regeneration and this substance also increased the number of shoots per a jar (73.34% and 8.2 shoots/jar, respectively), compared to the other concentrations, including the control treatment. A biochemical analysis of date palm shoots revealed that the high concentration of aluminum chloride (100 mg l−1) led to a significant accumulation of the total proline content, and to a high activity of ascorbate peroxidase, as well as a significant reduction in nitrogen, phosphorus, calcium, magnesium and chlorophyll, compared to the concentration of 50 mg l−1 for which there were recorded the highest contents of the mentioned elements, together with the highest content of chlorophyll in leaves.

    Mass propagation of date palm through indirect somatic embryogenesis or organogenesis has attracted the interest of commercial producers. But, this technique still faces some problems that hindered the production of date palm plantlets in vitro. Tissue browning is one of the serious problems that reduce callus growth and shoot regeneration. So the objective of the present study is to investigate the effect of cold pretreatment on callus growth, shoot regeneration, and polyphenol oxidase (PPO) activity during the callus culture. Results showed that a high survival rate of callus cultures (100%) were obtained when cultures were incubated in low temperature (cold treatment) for 45 and 75 days. On the other hand, total amount on phenolic compounds was also reduced to 0.47 and 0.53 mg GAE/g after same period of incubation (45 and 75 days respectively) at low temperature. In additional, our results showed that the highest frequency of shoot formation (66.67 and 73.34, %) and the highest shoot numbers (7.8 and 8.6 shoots/100 mg) were obtained from callus treated with low temperature for 45 and 75 days, respectively.

    Springer Science and Business Media LLC
    The objective of the present study is to determine the effect of light source on enhancement of shoot multiplication, phytochemicals, as well as, antioxidant enzyme activities of in vitro cultures of date palm cv. Alshakr. In vitro-grown buds were cultured on Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium and incubated under a conventional white fluorescent light (control), and combinations of red + blue light emitting diode (18:2) (CRB-LED). Results revealed that the treatment of CRB-LED showed a significant increase in the number of shoots compared with the white florescent light. Total soluble carbohydrate “TSCH” (7.10 mg g−1 DW.), starch (1.63 mg g−1 DW.) and free amino acids (2.90 mg g−1 DW.) were significantly higher in CRB-LED (p < 0.05). Additionally, CRB-LED induced a higher peroxidase activity (25.50 U ml−1) compared with the white fluorescent light treatment (19.74 U ml−1) as control treatment. Potassium, magnesium and sodium contents in (3.62, 13.99 and 2.76 mg g−1 DW.) were increased in in vitro shoots under CRB-LED treatment in comparison with fluorescent light (p < 0.05). Protein profile showed the appearance of newly bands with the molecular weight of 38 and 60 kDa at the treatment CRB-LED compared with control treatment. Our results demonstrate the positive effects of CRB-LED light during the course of date palm tissue cultures.

    Southern Cross Publishing
    This study was carried out to investigate the antioxidant effects of salicylic acid (SA) and ascorbic acid (ASA) under two stress levels (75 and 150 mM NaCl) on growth and some biochemical constituents of date palm cv. Nersy cultured in vitro. Micro-propagated shoots of cv. Nersy at length 2.5-3 cm was excised from the proliferation medium and were separately cultured on MS medium. The data indicated that maximum growth and chlorophyll content of shoots was observed after 75 days of culturing in the medium supplemented with 50 mgl -1 salicylic acid and 100 mgl -1 ascorbic acid in both stress and non-stress conditions. It was also observed that the in vitro-grown plants resulted increased activities of antioxidant enzymes SOD and APX in medium containing of salicylic acid (75 mgl -1 ) and ascorbic acid (100 mgl -1 ) with increasing salt stress (up to 150 mM of NaCl) compared with other treatments. The study of shoot protein patterns using SDS-PAGE showed some remarkable changes in protein expression. The results suggests that the stress induced the synthesis of proteins bands with MW of 15, 29, 43 kD and 15, 22.6, 35 and 46 kD in medium supplement with 75 and 150 mM NaCl, respectively, compared with control treatment (20.9, 28.39, 37, 40 and 48.6) kD. Supplementing salicylic acid (75mgl -1 ) and ascorbic acid (100 mgl -1 ) under salt stress condition induced the synthesis of additional protein bands with MW of 19.28, 28.50, 32.61, 59.12 and 72.00 KD at 75 mM NaCl; and 17.96,22.6, 31.95 54.50 and 68.0 at 150 mM NaCl.

    Science Publications
    This study was carried out to investigate the effec ts of copper sulphate and cobalt chloride on propagation of date palm cv. Ashgar in vitro . The rate of callus proliferation was significantl y higher in the medium supplemented with 2 µM copper sulphate and 2 µM cobalt chloride together (p<0.05). Addition of copper sulphate and Cobalt chloride to the medium was most effective for shoots regeneration from callus and enhanced regeneration frequency as well as number of shoots obtained per explant, the best result (7.12 shoot/explant) was o btained by using copper sulphate and Cobalt chlorid e at 2.0 µM. Also the results of this experiment indicat es that the maximum induction of roots can be achieved in the media containing both additives at 0.5 µM. The callus exhibited a decline in carbohydr ate contents, proteins, whereas total phenol content in creased at high concentration of Cu and Co. The greatest formation of chlorophylls a, b and total c hlorophyll was obtained in plantlets grown in the m edia containing both additives at 0.5 µM. As well as Max imum survivability was noticed for plants cultured in media that containing both copper sulphate and Coba lt chloride at 0.5 µM.
