Barleria prionitis L. is a threatened medicinal plant belongs to Acanthaceae family. No protocol has been developed yet for plant regeneration of this important medicinal plant. The objective of this study was to develop an efficient in vitro propagation protocol for Barleria prionitis L. Significantly more shoots (10 shoots per nodal explants) were induced on a medium containing 0.4mg/l thidiazuron (TDZ) and 1.5mg/l 6-benzylaminopurine (BA) than any other treatment. Sub-culturing regenerated maximum rate of shoot multiplication on a medium with 5.0 mg/l 6-benzylaminopurine (BA) with 2.0 mg/l ά-naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA). In-vitro produced shoots exhibited good rooting response in half strength MS medium supplemented with different concentrations of auxins. After 40 days of hardening of plantlets almost 99% of rooted plants could be successfully transferred and acclimatized ex-vitro under poly-house conditions, followed by their establishment in the field.

Pterocarpus marsupium (Bija), a popular Indian medicinal plant. Has long been used commonly in ayurvedic system of medicine. The plant has been found to possess diverse number of biological activities. The P. marsupium tree has some medicinal property and is thus commercially exploitable. During the last five decades, apart from the chemistry of the P. marsupium compounds, considerable progress has been achieved regarding the biological activity and medicinal applications of P. marsupium. It is now considered as a valuable source of unique natural products for development of medicines against various diseases and also for the development of industrial products. This review reveals that the biological activities and medicinal properties of P. marsupium compounds isolated, pharmacological actions of the P. marsupium extracts, clinical studies and plausible medicinal applications along with their safety evaluation. © arjournals.org.

Psoralea corylifolia Linn. is an endangered and medicinally important plant indigenous to tropical and subtropical regions of the world. Its medicinal usage is reported in Indian pharmaceutical codex, the Chinese, British and the American pharmacopoeias and in different traditional system of medicines such as Ayurveda, Unani and Siddha. The review reveals that wide ranges of phytochemical constituents have been isolated from the plant and it possesses important activities like antibacterial, anti-inflammatory and antitumer. Various other activities like hepatoprotective, antioxidants and antithelminitic have also been reported. These repots are very encouraging and indicate that herb should be studied more expensively for its therapeutic benefits. This article briefly reviews the botany, pharmacology, biochemistry and therapeutic application of the plant. This is an attempt to compile and document information on different aspects of Psoralea corylifolia and highlight the need for research and development. © arjournals.org, All rights reserved.

The plants propagated by seeds are highly heterozygous thus; variations in genetic characters are to be expected. In vegetative propagation, unlike generative method, superior traits or characters of mother plants with respect to yield oil quality and disease resistance are conserved in their progenies, hence the study was undertaken. Effect of the different growth regulators (revive rooting hormones-Rootex) (Rootex-a, b, c; Natural Agrotech Indore.) on rooting of half-woody shoots of Adathoda vasica Nees. and Barleria prionitis L. were studied. Without stimulation, rooting in these medicinal plants occurred but after 7 weeks and after stimulation rhizogenesis takes 2 to 3 weeks. Growth regulators, with the exception of the preparation Rootexc, showed a significantly stimulating effect on rhizogenesis, and effect of them declined in the order Rootex-a, Rootex-b and Rootex-c. The percentage of rooting in these medicinal plants Adathoda vasica Nees and Barleria prionitis L. was higher in preparations of 30gm/50 ml DW(Distilled Water) than that in other preparations in both cases of Rootex-a and Rootex-b. Poor rooting was found in the case of Rootex-c in all types of preparations. Rhizogenesis also varies according to the age of the plants, cutting, substrate, and conditions of cultivation.
