Nodal segments were found best responsive explants for regeneration when MS medium was supplemented with BAP and Kinetin (Razak et al., 2014) or 6-benzyl amino purine and 1-Naphthaleneacetic acid (Soliman et al., 2014).

Four week old geneticin resistant calli were transferred to ReM (Regeneration Media) containing MS medium (4.43 g/L); myo-inositol (1g/L); 2-4-D (1 mg/L); sucrose (3%); 6benzylaminopurine (2 mg/L); 1-naphthaleneacetic acid (1 mg/L); kinetin (0.5 mg/L); phytagel (0.38%); pH adjusted to 5.7 (prior to autoclave); cefotaxime (250 mg/L) and geneticin (40 mg/L).

For Prunus genus species rooting, the most commonly used auxins are indole-3-butyric acid (IBA), 1-naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA) and indole-3-acetic acid (IAA) (ROCHA et al., 2006).
The effects of Thidiazuron (TDZ) at 0, 2.5, 5 and 7.5 mg/l and 1-naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA) at 0.02, 0.1 and 0.5 mg/l concentrations separately and in combination each other and 2,4dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) at 0, 0.5 and 1 mg/l and 6-dimethylamino purine (2ip) at 0, 0.1 and 0.2 mg/l concentrations separately and in combination each other were examined on the callus induction from anther explants of olive conservolea cultivar.
