Vinca rosea L. Syn. Catharanthus roseus L. G. Don. is an important medicinal plant which belongs to the family Apocynaceae. The present study deals with Micropropagation, Callogenesis, Cell suspension culture & Antimicrobial activity of Vinca rosea L.. Explants were cultured on MS basal medium and supplemented with different concentrations of BAP (mg/l) and NAA (mg/l) for micropropagation whereas 2, 4-D (mg/l) and Kin (mg/l) for callogenesis. Multiple shoots were obtained on all the concentrations of BAP and NAA, but BAP (1 mg/l) showed best response (90% & 80%).Similarly best callus response was observed on MS medium supplemented with 2, 4- D + Kin (1+1 mg/l) in all the explants (95% from leaf, 80% from node & 60% from fruit). Cell suspension culture have also been established in the present study according to which the calluses gave suspensions consisting of both the embryogenic and non-embryogenic cluster of the cells in 2, 4- D + Kin (1+1 mg/l) and gave best response (70%).The present study also describes the comparison of in vivo and in vitro antimicrobial activity of Vinca rosea.
