DKP01 DKW Basal Salts (Driver and Kuniyuki Walnut) are a nutrient-rich formulation used in plant tissue culture, particularly for woody species. It’s especially beneficial for plants that do not thrive on other media like Murashige and Skoog (MS) mediums.
Some specific applications include:
**Micropropagation:** Rapid multiplication of plants from small tissue samples.
**Callus Induction:** Promotes callus formation for later plant regeneration.
**Somatic Embryogenesis:** Supports the development of embryos from non-reproductive cells.
 **Organogenesis:** Facilitates the formation of shoots and roots from cultured tissues.
**Germplasm Preservation:** Maintains cultures for long-term conservation.
Some specific plants that thrive with DKP01 DKW Basal Salts:
1. Juglans spp. (Walnuts): Originally developed for walnuts, this medium is highly effective for their tissue culture.
2. Prunus spp.: Includes cherries (Prunus avium), plums (Prunus domestica), peaches (Prunus persica), and almonds (Prunus dulcis).
3. Carya spp.: Pecans (Carya illinoinensis) and hickories (Carya spp.).
4. Vitis spp. (Grapevines): Certain grapevine cultivars such as Vitis vinifera.
5. Malus spp. (Apples): Some apple varieties, particularly those used in breeding and genetic studies.
6. Pyrus spp. (Pears): Pears such as Pyrus communis.
7. Citrus spp.:  Various citrus species including oranges (Citrus sinensis), lemons (Citrus limon), and limes (Citrus aurantiifolia).
