      Starch, total sugars, reducing sugars and protein contents and the specific activities of hydrolytic enzymes such as amylase, Phosphorylase, soluble acid invertase, wall-bound acid invertase, sucrose synthetase, acid and alkaline phosphatases and ribonuclease were determined in root forming, shoot forming and non-organ-forming callus cultures of tobacco. Organ-forming cultures not only showed higher amounts of the above metabolites but also higher enzyme activities compared to non-organ-forming cultures. The activities of these enzymes in relation to organogenesis is discussed.
