Abstract: To improve the speed of in vitro propagation of Dioscorea opposita and shorten the breeding cycle, we used nodal segments with axillary buds of D. opposita cv. ‘Tiegun’ as the starting material. The optimal conditions for protocorm-like body (PLB) induction, proliferation, differentiation and plantlet regeneration were analyzed. The optimal culture medium for PLB induction was MS+1.0 mg·L-1 TDZ+30 g·L-1 sucrose, the optimal culture medium for PLB proliferation was MS+9 mg·L-1 6-BA+30 g·L-1 sucrose, and the optimal culture medium for PLB differentiation was MS+2 mg·L-1 KT+0.02 mg·L-1 NAA+30 g·L-1 sucrose. In culture medium containing 1/4MS+0.05 mg·L-1 NAA+1.0 mg·L-1 PP333+15 g·L-1 sucrose, the rooting rate of regenerated plantlets from PLBs was 80%, and the survival rate of regenerated plantlets was up to 85% after being sown in soil. The induction of protocorm like bodies and the establishment of plant regeneration system provide a new way for rapid propagation of D. opposita seedlings.

Key words: Dioscorea opposita, induction, plant regeneration, proliferation, protocorm-like body
