Aloe vera, commonly called a burn plant, is an important xerophytic plant having pharmaceutical and cosmetic properties. this plant is reported to have more than 200 bioactive coumpounds which are used in laxative, anti-obesity preparation, as a moisturizer, emollient, wound healer, in various cosmetic and pharmaceutical formulations.It enhances the immune system and possesses antibacterial, antiviral, anti fungal and anti-inflammatory potential. Aloe vera in generally propagated asexually through lateral shoots. The number of lateral shoots per donor plant is low and variable over time, limiting the rapid production system for commercial scale. Micropropagation is not a new technology as the application of this innovative system have served to overcome barriers of conventional methods and gave progress in the efficient multiplication of several plant species and their further improvements. This book is written keeping in mind the importance of the plant and need to solve the problem of low productivity associated with conventional propagation methods, by applying in vitro techniques for the mass propagation of the Aloe vera.
We present a method for development of micropropagation protocol of Aloe barbadensis. Aloe barbadensis Mill (synonym- Aloe vera L) is known as Kumari in Ayurveda. It is an important perennial medicinal herb belonging to the family Liliaceae. Aloe leaves contain very useful secondary metabolite like anthracene derivatives, which occur either free or in the form of glycosides. Because of its anti-inflammatory, anti-cancer, antiviral, anti-bacteria, immune-enhancing and parasite killing activities. In nature, propagation of Aloe barbadensis Mill is primarily by means of offshoots. But propagation rate is slow as a single plant can produce only 3-4 offshoots in a year. Because of its heavy exploitation and ever increasing demand the production rate of Aloe plants is insufficient for commercial plantation. Thus there is a need to undertake large-scale multiplication and cultivation of Aloe.
Aloe vera is one of the few medicinal plants used in home remedies since ancient times. The dried sap of the Aloe plant is traditionally used for diabetes. Some of the most important other pharmacological activities of Aloe vera are antiseptic, anti- tumor, anti-inflammatory and wound and burn healing effect In order to fulfill the demand for aloe, a large number of authentic planting materials are required for cultivation throughout the year and thus, micropropagation would be an attractive method as an alternative for the conventional propagation of Aloe vera. Apart from Aloe vera, other economically important species of Aloe include A. ferox Mill, A. Africana Mill, A. perryi Back. and A. arborescence. Therefore, it is also required to systematically characterize this economically important genus at molecular level in relation to morphological variation for estimation of genetic diversity. Hence, it is hoped that present compilation would be of great use to the Aloe vera researchers, teachers and students. It may also prove book a reference as to the agencies engaged in natural product formation from Aloe vera.
