|Abstract:||When leaf explants from 5-week-old lemon basil seedling were excited and cultivated on MS basal medium supplemented with various concentrations of 2,4-D under light and aseptic conditions for 4 weeks. It was found that callus had the highest fresh weight on week 4 which were 1.81, 1.64 and 1.18 g on the medium consisted of 0.25, 0.5 and 1 mg/l 2,4-D, respectively. After antioxidant analysis from leaf-derived callus of lemon basil was performed on week 2, 3 and 4 during induction, results revealed that callus initiating on the medium comprised 0.25 mg/l 2,4-D obviously contained chlorophyll a, b and β-carotene more than other concentrations throughout the experiment which had the maximum value on week 2 at 0.320, 0.080 and 0.079 mg/gFW, respectively.|
