The authors studied the features of callusogenesis and regeneration (number, mass, morphological characteristics and efficiency of callus formation, morphological characteristics of regenerants and regeneration efficiency) in the species from different section of Hordeum L. genus. For induction of callusogene-sis the three explants types were used (young blossom cluster, immature corcule, ripe corn seeds), and also the three nutrient media differed on mineral content (N6, B5L, Murashige-Skoog). It was established, that a formation of callus tissue in species of Hordeum section differs from the same in species of different section (Anisolepis, Critesion, Stenostachys). The callus type do not depends on medium content and used explants. Some of studied species didn’t reveal the regeneration of plants from callus. The single regeneration type was specific for species from Hordeum section, but the multiple type — for species from Anisolepis, Critesion, Stenostachys sections. The type regeneration didn’t depend on selected explants (young blossom cluster, immature corcule, and ripe corn seed).
Keywords: callusogenesis, regeneration, explants, in vitro culture, genus Hordeum, wild barley.
Barley (genus Hordeum L.) is widespread in nature and grows in different climatic conditions, which factors provide diverse physiological characteristics of its species (1, 2). However, this genus is poorly studied even today, especially the wild forms and their cultivation in vitro. Cultivated barley H. vulgare is frequently used in studies on culture of tissues and organs, there’s the developed system for cultivation this crop and findings on its regeneration (3−6). Wild species are rarely used in such investigations, and the number of studied wild species is very small (7−12). At the same time, these close relatives of cultivated barley are the possible sources of valuable traits for introgression into the genome of H. vulgare (13). Knowledge of biological features of wild barley species cultivated in vitro is an extremely urgent task, since using their gene pool for breeding purposes is possible only at the use of in vitro methods.
The most common explants for embryogenic callus culture of barley are immature embryos (14). Microclonal propagation of individual unique plants (eg. sterile interspecific hybrids of cereals) can be performed using somatic tissues of young inflorescences (15−17), for microcloning and formation of somatic tissue culture of barley — apical meristem of growing shoots (18). Mature embryos can be used as explants providing a primary callus without any seasonal limitations (19). Investigations of callus formation and regeneration are usually carried out on the explant most suitable for experiments and effectively providing reliable results. Though, the comparative study of these processes in one genotype at the use of different explants hasn’t been performed yet.
The purpose of this study was to determine in different barley species the phenotypic features of callus induction and regeneration, to evaluate regeneration potential of species and compare the features of in vitro cultivation of different explants.
Technique. The object of study were barley species from different sections of genus Hordeum preserved in the laboratory of biotechnology of N.I. Vaviolv All-Russia Research and Development Institute of Plant Industry (VIR). The section Hordeum was represented by the species H. vulgare L. (2*: cv Polyarnyi 14, Rannii 1, Betzes, Roland — from VIR collection), H. vulgare ssp. sponta-neum (C. Koch) Thell. (2*: W 31 и W 485 — from VIR collection, I 118 914 — from VIR department of introduction), H. vulgare ssp. agreochrithon (Aberg) Bowd (2*: I 118 914 — from VIR department of introduction), H. bulbosum L.

The series of samples the section Anisolepis included only diploid (2*) species: H. pusillum Nutt. (I 491 050), H. intercedens Nevski (H 1940 — the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciencis — SUAS, Svalov), H. lexuosum Steud. (H 1110, H 1112, H 1116 — SUAS, Svalov), H. muticum Pres. (H 958, H 1784, SUAS, Svalov), H. cordobense Bothmer et al. (H1702 — SUAS, Svalov). Species of the section Critesion: H. jubatum L. (4*: K 1 — plants collected in Krasnoyarsk region, Sh 2 и Sh 5 — plants collected in the Shortandy settlement, Kazakhstan, Ya 1 — plants collected in Yakutia), H. procerum Nevski (6*: W 356 — from VIR collection, I 491 049 — from VIR department of introduction), H. lechlery (Steud) Schenck (6*: H 1496 — SUAS, Svalov). Species of the section Stenostachys: H. marinum Huds. (2*: H 299 — SUAS, Svalov- 4*: I 118 920 — from VIR department of introduction, W 493 — from VIR collectilon), H. depressum (Scribn. & amp- Sm.)

Callus tissue was obtained from three types of explants — young inflorescences (immature ear segments before meiosis), immature embryos (on the 14th -16th day after pollination) and mature caryopses (6 months after complete ripening, normally formed in vivo). Different modes of sterilization were applied. Shoots with young inflorescences were sterilized in 70% ethanol solution for 5 minutes. Caryopses before the isolation of immature embryos were sterilized in 70% ethanol for 4 minutes and then in 10% hydrogen peroxide solution for 15 minutes and finally washed three times with sterile water (1 minute in each change). Mature caryopses were sterilized similarly (exposure to hydrogen peroxide — 20 minutes). Before sterilization of caryopses, their glumes were removed. Mature sterilized caryopses were explanted on a nutrient medium notch up without isolation of the embryo.
Depending on a set task, all types of explants were planted in culture vessels on inducing media of different chemical composition: B5L (1920), N6 (21) and Murashige-Skoog (MS) (22). The only auxine hormone- 2,4-dihlorfenoksi-acetic acid (2,4-D) — was used at the concentration 2 mg/l constant in all the media. For organogenesis, N6 medium containing 1 mg/l kinetin was applied.
For callus induction, the explanted embryos and mature caryopses were cultured in an incubator at 27 °C in the dark. After the transfer of calli on the regeneration medium, the vessels were placed into a light chamber with 16-hour photoperiod at room tem-
perature. In variants with young inflorescences, the light exposure was applied during both callus induction and organogenesis.
Efficiency of callus induction and regeneration were recorded — respectively, after 15 and 30 days post explantation, and after 30 days following the transfer of calli on regeneration medium. Callusogenesis was assessed in all samples by the number of developed calli and their wet weight gain by the end of a passage. Efficiency of callus induction was expressed as a percentage of calli relative to a number of initial explants. Relative growth rate was determined by comparison with raw biomass measured after the 1st passage, considering the fact that this characteristic is below than detection threshold of weighing (scales Sartorius L 610D, Sartorius GmbH, Germany). External morphological features of calli were evaluated. At the stage of regeneration, normally developed plants having shoots and roots were accounted. Efficiency of regeneration was calculated as a percentage of calli resulted in normally developed plants relative to the total number of explants planted on organogenic medium. Along with it, morphological parameters of calli after formation of regenerants were controlled.
Efficiency of regeneration in calli obtained from different types of explants was compared using the %2 criterion for the 4-field table 2*2 (23). Reliability of the share (%) for alternatively diverse variants (presence / absence of callus induction and regeneration) was evaluated by its error (23).
Results. The composition of nutrient media used in this research was revised to simplify and optimize conditions of in vitro experiments. To compare the indices of callus induction and regeneration in different Hordeum species, the authors selected most common and simple in composition nutrient media: Murashige-Skoog (MS), N6 (Chu medium) and B5L (modified Gamborg’s B5-medium). These media have identical qualitative composition of macroelements, but they are distinct in contents of these elements in nutrient solution and the ratio of NO3-and NH4+ ions.
To study the induction and development of calli in different barley species depending on mineral composition of a medium, immature embryos were used as explants. Such explants were chosen owing to intense proliferation and competence of all embryo tissues when cultured in vitro (8, 24, 25), which prevents results of the experiments from the effects of reduced proliferative function in a specialized tissue. Explantation of immature embryos of different barley species revealed interspecific differences in both the efficiency of callus induction and growth rate of callus tissues.
In all studied samples of cultivated barley, immature embryos demonstrated a highest frequency of callus formation on the 2nd — 3rd day after explantation, and the active visible growth of calli — on the 4th — 7th day. A slight variation in timing of callus induction and formation of visible callus tissue was observed in different cultivated varieties and wild species. These distinctions were found to be species-specific rather than caused by mineral composition of a medium. All studied species showed no significant fluctuations in duration of the induction period depending on composition of a medium.
The obtained data on the efficiency of callus induction are represented in groups according to division of genus Hordeum into types and sections proposed by R. Bothmer et al. (2). Thus, immature embryos of H. vulgare after the explantation manifested high frequency of callus induction, while in different varieties of cultivated barley this rate was also high — from 53,4 to 96,4%. External morphological features of calli grown in all three media were most similar: immature embryos developed into large, semitransparent friable calli, i.e. I type callus (classification of C.S. Goldstein and W.E. Kronstadt, 1986) (25). By the end of the 1st period of in vitro cultivation, callus tissue transformed into compact and opaque II type callus (compact) (25). It is known that II type calli are more prone to regeneration, because development of dense tissue is associated with formation of meristematic zones de novo (25).
Immature embryos of wild subspecies H. vulgare ssp. spontaneum and ssp. agreochrithon were found to form calli of the same type and morphological structure as those in cultivated barley. H. bulbosum (2 x, 4 *) and H. murinum (2 x, 4 x, 6 *) developed calli of the similar type, but of a smaller size than in cultivated barley. In the section Hordeum, I type callus prevailed during growth and development, which trait didn’t depend on composition of different media (Table 1). In this section, the efficiency of callus induction dependant on medium composition was established only in H. vulgare and its wild subspecies, as well as in H. bulbosum (both diploid and tetraploid forms). In H. murinum (di-, tetra- and hexaploid cytotypes), composition of a medium caused no significant impact on efficiency of callus induction.
The studied species of the section Hordeum demonstrated regeneration of shoots and roots on calli re-explanted on organogenic medium. A crown type of roots (without formation of a shoot) was most frequently developed by almost all studied species. This fact was often observed in variants with calli formed on B5L-medium. The calli induced on MC-medium showed higher rates of tissue necrosis compared with two other media. Calli of the Hordeum section had unequal effectiveness of regeneration in organogenic medium. The absence of shoots regeneration was observed in diploid forms of H. bulbosum and H. murinum. Shoots were formed only on the calli grown from immature embryos of tetraploid and hexaploid H. murinum transplanted on organogenic medium N6 from the inducing media B5L and N6. In this case, efficiency of regeneration varied from 3,8−10,0% in tetraploid form up to 10,663,0% in a hexaploid.
In the section Anisolepis, callus induction and regeneration were assessed in H. flexuosum and H. pusillum. Immature embryos of these species were placed in the inducing media B5L, N6 and MC, and II type callus was formed fairly fast in all these variants. The observed efficiency of callus induction was 44,4−84,3% in H. flexuosum and 42,5−56,4% in H. pusillum- the maximum rate was established in the inducing medium N6. Regeneration of shoots was recorded only in the species H. flexuosum transplanted on the organogenic medium N6 from the inducing media B5L and N6.

In species of the section Critesion (H. jubatum, H. procerum, H. lechlery), it was observed the high efficiency of callus induction — from 98,6% (H. jubatum on B5L-medium) to 58,8% (H. lechlery on MC-medium) (Table 1). In all callus-inducing media used in the experiment, a loose white opaque callus was formed and quickly transformed into the II type callus with nodulous structure. The highest efficiency of regeneration was observed in the species H. jubatum, the intermediate position — H. procerum, and the lower value was recorded in H. lechlery.
The reaction on media with different composition was assessed in the section Stenostachys upon its two tetraploid species -H. marinum and H. depressum. They manifested high efficiency of callus induction on all used inducing media: immature embryos developed into II type callus. Regeneration occurred with relatively low efficiency — from 20,0−27,8% in H. marinum to 8,6−23,9% in H. depressum.
In various Hordeum species, cultivation of calli in different inducing media and further transfer to a single organogenic medium contributed to common features — callus types and types of regeneration specific for certain groups of species. So, I type calli were most frequently found in species of the section Hordeum, II type — in sections Anisolepis, Critesion and Stenostachys- prevailed types of regeneration — single (mainly detected in the section Hordeum) and multiple (peculiar to most species of sections Anisolepis, Critesion and Stenostachys). H. lechlery exhibited multiple regeneration with dominance of one shoot, H. depressum — a multiple regeneration with necrosis of callus tissue. An equally sample-specific type of regeneration was manifested on all the three media. Composition of a medium provided small effect on regeneration of calli, but calli induced on B5L-medium more often developed rhizogenesis a crown type after transplantation on the organogenic medium, while the inducing medium MC used to result in necrosis of a callus.
Mineral composition of nutrient medium affected growth rates of callus biomass. Total mass of calli was determined as an integral characteristic of their growth in species of different sections the genus Hordeum: samples of the section Hordeum demonstrated more intense growth in media MC and B5L, less intense — in N6 medium. In other sections (Anisolepis, Critesion and Stenostachys), N6 medium caused better growth of calli than two others (see figure). The calli formed on N6 medium had greater number of meristematic zones than those on media B5L and MC, which fact was observed in both wild and cultivated barley. N6 medium also provided higher efficiency of regeneration in majority of wild species and the minimum number of callus necroses. In this regard, N6 medium was considered as optimum for in vitro cultivation of all Hordeum species and interspecific hybrids, so only this medium was used during a comparative assessment of micropropagation efficiency in explants of different types (young inflorescences, immature embryos and mature caryopsis).
Samples of the section Hordeum demonstrated callus formation in all types of explants (Table 2). Primary calli of a similar structure (loose transparent — I type) were formed by all types of explants. In samples of H. vulgare different subspecies and H. bulbo-sum cytotypes, regeneration from young inflorescences didn’t occur. Regeneration was observed in tetraploid samples of H. murinum. One of these samples (H. murinum I 118 916) showed the efficiency of regeneration much lower in the variant with immature embryos than that with young inflorescences (Px2 = 0,015), and the same order indices were recorded when using caryopses. All tested samples of the section Hordeum demonstrated a single type of regeneration from calli of different origin despite their differences in regeneration efficiency. Multiple regeneration with dominance of one shoot was found in only tetraploid sample G 1 of H. murinum.

The section Anisolepis performed callusogenesis in all types of explants (Table 3) with formation of a dense nodulous callus (II type). Regeneration wasn’t observed in several studied samples. Thus, H. pusillum I 491 050 didn’t exhibit regeneration from calli regardless the type of explant. In H. flexuosum H 1116, the rate of regeneration from inflorescences was significantly lower than that from embryos and caryopses. The comparison by-criterion revealed statistically reliable differences of these variants: for calli derived from inflorescences and embryos — at p=0,001 ('-/= 30,07), from mature caryopses and inflorescences — at p=0,01 (Px2 = 0,002).
In H. muticum H 958, regeneration efficiency in calluses developed from caryopses was significantly higher than in two other types of explants. The section Anisolepis (H. muticum H 958, H. flexuosum H 1116) showed varying efficiency of regeneration from calli of different origin, while the type of regeneration didn’t depend on the used explants (Table 3). Species of this section developed the following types of regeneration: single (H. cordobense H 1702), multiple (H. intersedens H 1940), multiple with dominance of one shoot (H. muticum H 958, H 1784) and multiple with necrosis of callus (H. flexuosum H 1116, H 1112- H. chilense I 559 966). 3.

Note. See Table 2. Dashes — formation of non-viable calli which were not used in the experiment.
All studied samples of the section Critesion were found to form a compact nodulous callus. The only exception — the sample
H. jubatum Ya 1 (loose watery callus not capable to regeneration). Other samples demonstrated multiple regeneration, and the dominance of a single shoot was observed in the sample H. lechlery H 1496. In the section Critesion, type of regeneration was common for all types of explant as well (Table 3), while regeneration of calli obtained from inflorescence was more efficient than from other types of explants. The samples H. jubatum K 1 and H. procerum I 491,049 manifested regeneration of 100% calli originated from inflorescences, whereas in variants with immature embryos and mature caryopses this indicator varied within 30,0−45,5% (differences in all cases are reliable at p = 0,001). In H. lechlery H 1496, efficiency of regeneration was slightly lower than in H. jubatum K 1 and H. procerum I 491 049, though this value in the variant with inflorescences significantly exceeded (p = 0,001) the corresponding indicator observed in this sample at the use of immature embryos.
Species of the section Stenostachys, as a rule, developed a dense nodulous callus (II type) from explants of different types regardless the efficiency of callus formation, with a trend toward lower efficiency of regeneration in calli obtained from young inflorescences than when using embryos (Table 3). Thus, in the variant with immature embryos of H. depressum W 309, this value was significantly higher than in the variant with its young inflorescences (%2 = 5,183, p & lt- 0,05). Within a sample, one type of regeneration was observed in calli derived from different explants (Table 3). Most of the studied forms performed a multiple regeneration (H. marinum 4 x — I 118 920, I 118 921, W 493, H. parodii H 1269, H. patagonicum H 1468, H. californicum I 559 970). Both studied samples of H. depressum showed multiple regeneration accompanied with necrosis of callus. Single regeneration was performed only by the diploid H. marinum (Table 3).
The efficiency of regeneration from different types of explants was established to be dependant on current stage of development (optimal or non-optimal) on which they were isolated to be a source for primary callus (23, 25). It is common that size of an explant is used as a guide in such cases- therefore, the efficiency of regeneration can vary from experiment to experiment. However, qualitative characteristics of regeneration are not associated with any particular type of the explant.
Thus, the genus Hordeum was found to express three types of regeneration: single — in species the section Hordeum and in the samples of H. cordobense and H. californicum, multiple — in the section Critesion and majority of studied species from the section Stenostachys, multiple with necrosis of callus — in H. depressum and H. chilense. Type of regeneration is the specific feature of a sample developed independently on type of explant and the callus inducing medium.
