Abstract
Lawsonia inermis Linn. is an important medicinal plant, which grows up to 4 to 5 feet high in hot and dry climates and widely cultivated as a hedge plant. It is a unique source of various pharmacologically important compounds such as naphthoquinone (lawsone) derivatives, aliphatic components, triterpenes, sterols, phenolic derivatives, coumarins, xanthones, and flavonoids. As the global scenario is now changing towards the use of safer non-toxic plant products having traditional medicinal applications, development of modern drugs from henna should be emphasized for the control of various diseases. Lawsonia inermis is known to have immunomodulatory, antiviral, antibacterial, antifungal, antifertility, hepatoprotective, antimitotic, analgesic and anti-inflammatory properties. Conventionally it is propagated through stem cuttings or by seeds, which cannot meet out demand of quality planting material. Therefore, there is a need to develop an efficient micropropagation protocol for the production of quality planting material of Lawsonia inermis. In the present study, effect of cytokinins and polyamines on multiplication of Lawsonia inermis have been reported. Multiple shoots of L. inermis were induced using nodal segment explant on MS medium supplemented with 0.20 mg-1 6-benzylaminopurine (BAP) + 0.2 mgl-1 Kinetin (Kn), 0.5 mg-1. Rate of multiplication was higher in the medium supplemented with two cytokinins as compared to the polyamines. There was no significant difference in the length of shoots in all the combination used. Rooting was readily achieved upon transferring the shoots onto MS basal medium supplemented with 2.0 mg-1 indole-3-butyric acid (IBA) after ten days of culture. Micropropagated plants were acclimatized and successfully grown in soil and it is expected that this protocol will be very useful for large-scale production of Lawsonia inermis in future.
