Development of cryopreservation for Loxocarya cinerea: An endemic Australian plant species important for post-mining restoration
MetadataShow full item record
We report the development of a cryopreservation protocol for the endemic Western Australian plant species Loxocarya cinerea (Restionaceae). Shoot tips from two genotypes, SXH404 and SXH804, were cryopreserved using the droplet-vitrification technique. Control explants, which were cryoprotected, but not cooled, showed regeneration for both genotypes (SXH404, 22.1 ± 5.9%; SXH804, 67.7 ± 9.6%). Extension of incubation in PVS2 from 30 to 60 min did not lead to survival after cryopreservation. Thermal analysis using differential scanning calorimetry confirmed the beneficial effect of a loading phase but also revealed no or very little ice formation after cryoprotection of shoot tips in other treatments. Regeneration following cryopreservation was obtained for genotype SXH804 (4.3 ± 2.1%) but not for SXH404. Regenerated explants of L. cinerea SXH804 were morphologically identical to tissue-cultured plants. As an alternative to shoot tips, callus tissues of clone SXH404 were successfully cryopreserved (>66.7% post LN survival) using the same protocol.

Key message: Three wild species exhibited a significant reduction in antioxidants throughout the cryopreservation protocol, whilst the half-cell reduction potential became more oxidised. ...
Acclimation-induced changes in cell membrane composition and influence on cryotolerance of in vitro shoots of native plant speciesFunnekotter, Bryn; Kaczmarczyk, Anja; Turner, S.; Bunn, E.; Zhou, W.; Smith, S.; Flematti, G.; Mancera, Ricardo (2013)Cell membranes are the primary sites of cryopreservation injury and measuring changes to membrane composition arising from cold acclimation may assist with providing a rationale for optimising cryopreservation methods. ...
