Kumlay AM. Combination of the auxins NAA, IBA, and IAA with GA3 improves the commercial seed-tuber production of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) under in vitro conditions. Biomed Res Int. 2014;2014439259.
The study compared the effects of 1. 0 × MS medium containing various concentrations of a-naphthaleneacetic acid (NAA), indole-3-acetic acid (IAA), and indole-3-butyric acid (IBA), alone or in combination with gibberellic acid (GA3) in micropropagation of three potato (Solanum tuberosum L. ) cultivars Pasinler, Granola, and Caspar using binodal stem cuttings. THE RESULTS
testified improved regeneration on 1.0 × MS medium containing variants of NAA, IAA, and IBA plus GA3 on all cultivars. The minimum days to shoot induction on three cultivars ranged 4. 25-5 d on 1. 0 × MS medium containing 0. 25 mg L(-1) GA3 + 1 mg L(-1) NAA. The longest shoots (11. 8 cm), maximum number of nodes (13. 50), and maximum number of leaves (11. 00) were recorded on cv. Caspar on 1. 0 × MS medium containing 1 mg L(-1) NAA + 0. 25 mg L(-1) GA3. The minimum time to root induction (12. 25 d) was noted on cv. Pasinler on the same medium. All of the regenerated shoots could be easily rooted.

THE RESULTS
showed that the combined effect of various concentrations of NAA, IAA, and IBA plus GA3 was more pronounced compared to the auxins used alone.

THE RESULTS
of this research are of significant importance for potato breeders.
