By the base of this experiment due producing a friable callus for our aim its seems that explants of Glycyrrhiza glabra on MS medium by the maximum induction rate was recorded as 96% in MS medium with 0.5 mg/l 2,4-D and 2 mg/l 6-BA with a light compact structure but it's not a suitable for callus induction, using a hormonal dense with 1.0 mg/l NAA and 2 mg/l 6-BA by 91.6 induction rate with a Loose, spongy, friable structure its seems that by increasing the level or the dense of NAA as an auxins the potential for producing a friable callus decreases and this could shows the interaction between cytokines and auxins and the importance kind and role of this hormones' due producing a friable Loose, spongy, friable callus for a suspension culture which use in bioreactors.
