Abstract: Cecropia glaziovii is a tree with used in Brazilian popular medicine. Methods allowing the clonal propagation of this species are of great interest for superior genotype multiplication and perpetuation. For this reason, we examined the effect of different culture media and different types of explants on adventitious shoot regeneration from callus and buds of C. glaziovii. Leaves, petioles and stipules obtained from aseptically grown seedlings or from pre-sterilized plants were used to initiate cultures. Adventitious shoot regeneration as achieved when apical and axillary buds were inoculated on gelled Murashige & Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with 6-benzylaminopurine alone (BAP) (1.0, 5.0 or 10.0 mg L -1) or combined with -naphthalene acetic acid (NAA) (1.0 or 2.0 mg L -1), after 40 days of culture. Best callus production was obtained after 30 days of petioles' culture on gelled MS medium with 2,4 dichlorophenoxyacetic acid (2,4-D) (5.0 mg L -1) combined with BAP (1.0 mg L -1). Successful shoot regeneration from callus was achieved when MS medium supplemented with zeatin (ZEA) (0.1 mg L -1) alone or combined with 2,4-D (1.0 or 5.0 mg L -1) was inoculated with friable callus obtained from petioles. All shoots were rooted by inoculation on MS medium supplemented with ndole-3-acetic acid (IAA) (1.0 mg L -1). Rooted plants transferred to potting soil were successfully established. All in vitro regenerated plantlets showed to be normal, without morphological variations, being also identical to the source plant. Our study has shown that C. laziovii can be propagated by tissue culture methods, allowing large scale multiplication of superior plants for pharmacologica purposes.
