Table 6 Shoot regeneration from cotyledons (C) or hypocotyls (H) of L. campestre cultured on the medium containing 1.0 mg L -1 2,4-D (2,4-D1.0) for 3 days (3d), followed by transfer to 0.5 mg L -1 zeatin for 2 weeks (z 0.5, 2w), then to 2.0 mg L -1 zeatin (z 2.0) or 0.44 mg L -1 TDZ for another 2 weeks (TDZ 0.44, 2w), then to 1.1 mg L -1 TDZ*
