Carrot cell suspensions and protoplasts were successfully cryopreserved by vitrification. Cells were precultured in liquid Murashige and Skoog medium containing 0.175 M sucrose for 3 d and then in liquid MS medium containing 0.4 M sorbitol for 1 d. After loading of the precultured carrot cells in 25 % PVS2 at room temperature for 5 min and treatment with 100 % PVS2 at 0 degrees C for 7.5 min, they were quenched in liquid nitrogen. Optimal survival was 83.3 % (based on the triphenyl tetrazolium chloride reduction assay) following warming and unloading. Recovered cells retained the ability to regenerate plantlets in vitro. In the case of vitrification of protoplasts isolated from carrot cell suspensions, the optimal loading and dehydration durations were 5 min in 25% PVS2 and 3 min 100 % PVS2 respectively. Survival of 47 % of the untreated control (based on the FDA-PI (fluorescein diacetate-propidium iodide) staining) was achieved after cryopreservation.
