Plant tissue culture has played an increasingly important role in the production of elite planting stocks for the commercial crops. However, there are limitations encountered in the mass production of plantlets through tissue culture techniques. One of the key limitations is the low regeneration rate of the plantlets from the starting explant materials. Our group use the proteomic approach to elucidate the molecular and cellular mechanisms involved in the callus formation from the explants, which is an initial step in plantlets regeneration in tissue culture. In our study, 2D-PAGE coupled with MALDI TOF-TOF mass spectrometry were used to analyze callus proliferation samples of oil palm and vanilla orchids. Several differential proteins associated with callus proliferation were identified and elucidated. These differential proteins will be potential candidate markers for screening for calli of high proliferation rate in tissue culture of oil palm and vanilla orchids.
