1 Introduction

Use Orchids (Orchidaceae) are flowering plants with the largest number of members about 26 972 species [1]. Indonesia is one of the countries contributing to the diversity of orchids in the world, with around 5 000 species in Indonesia [2]. Moreover, orchids are ornamental plants with high commercial value [3]. One species of orchid that has high potential to be developed is Vanda tricolor Lindley var. Suavis which mostly grows on the slope of Mount Merapi and its surroundings [4]. V. tricolor has unique characters in its perianthium with a white base color and red to purplish-red spots, purple labellum and a distinctive aroma [5]. In addition, V. tricolor has been reported to have a special character in the HSP70 gene structure. Heat-shock proteins (HSPs) are ubiquitous proteins with important roles in response to biotic and abiotic stress. The 70-kDa heat-shock genes (HSP70s) encode a group of conserved chaperone proteins that play central roles in cellular networks of molecular chaperones and folding catalysts across all the studied organisms including bacteria, plants and animals [6]. Several HSP70s involved in drought tolerance have been well characterized in various plants. The HSP70 gene is responsible for high temperature resistance [7]

The existence of large scale exploitation and natural habitat destruction of V. tricolor has caused its population to decline [8]. Conservation efforts are needed to overcome this problem, both in situ and ex situ. Maintain of seeds supply is an important factor in orchid conservation [9]. Orchid seeds have a disadvantage, because the seeds do not have food reserves. Micropropagation or in vitro propagation of this orchid will become an effective method, because the time required is relatively short and seeds produced are large and uniform [10].

On March 11, 2020, at Universitas Gadjah Mada (UGM) Campus Senate Hall, V. tricolor var. Suavis Lindley was pollinated with self-pollination by Queen Maxima from The Netherlands Kingdom. Queen who was come with King Willem Alexander was given the honor to pollinate orchid for the purpose of conserving the endemic orchid of Merapi V. tricolor and building friendship between Dutch government, Dutch scientists with Indonesian government and scientists. From this pollination, three orchid siliques have been successfully obtained which are ready to be nurtured to form fertile seeds that will be planted for conservation of the original Merapi orchid V. tricolor. The hybrid plant itself has been given a scientific name: Vanda tricolor Lindley var. Suavis ‘Queen Maxima’ in honor of the Queen from Netherlands. Therefore, it is necessary to carry out research to maintain and optimize the propagation technique of V. tricolor ‘Queen Maxima’ both in vivo and in vitro. In addition, it also needs to be completed with morphological and molecular character data, especially the HSP70 gene structure in the V. tricolor ‘Queen Maxima’.

Orchid propagation with in vitro culture has been widely practiced both in the world and in Indonesia, such as Dendrobium nanum [11], Phalaenopsis amabilis [12], Dendrobium phalaenopsis [13], and Grammatophyllum scriptum [14]. It is expected that seedlings of V. tricolor ‘Queen Maxima’ can grow well both in vitro and ex vitro. Information regarding the morphological characters of V. tricolor ‘Queen Maxima’ will be complemented with its molecular characters, especially regarding the structure of the HSP70 gene which is characteristic of V. tricolor var suavis which is very heat resistant in its natural habitat, Mt. Merapi. This study aims to determine the morphological and molecular characters of V. tricolor var Suavis, especially the character of the HSP70 gene in these plants. In addition, this study also aims to determine the percentage of germination and growth of V. tricolor ‘Queen Maxima’ orchid embryos that have been grown in vitro.

2 Materials and methods

2.1 Plant materials

The mother plant of the V. tricolor var Suavis orchid used was obtained from Mrs. Uminurida from the Indonesian Orchid Society, Yogyakarta Special Region Province. Morphological observations included habitus, morphology of vegetative and generative organs. V. tricolor pollination begins with selecting flowers that are ready for pollination (four days old after fully blooming). Then pollen is taken using a toothpick and inserted into stigma cavity. Pollination was carried out by self-pollination on V. tricolor by Queen Maxima. Observations of pollination results include the length of flower stalks, ovaries, color of flower stalks and flowers. Color for every observed character was compared to 6th edition Royal Horticulture Society (RHS) color chart [15].

2.2 In vitro propagation of V. tricolor ‘Queen Maxima’

In vitro propagation begins with siliques/fruits pre-sterilization by washing it with liquid soap and rinsing it with clean water. Then the siliques are sterilized by dipping the fruit in 70 % alcohol and spreading it over a bunsen fire. The sterile silique is then cut longitudinally and transversally, so that the seeds can be taken with tweezers. Seeds are sown on Vacin and Went (VW), New Phalaenopsis (NP) and Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium in the bottle. Culture bottles were labelled and stored in the incubator room under a continuous white light of 1 000 lux at a temperature of 25 °C for four weeks observation.

2.3 Genome DNA isolation from V. tricolor

For molecular characterization of HSP70 gene, five samples of V. tricolor aged seven years were used which were grown at Faculty of Biology, UGM. Sample number one is parent plant used in the self-pollination of V. tricolor to produce V. tricolor ‘Queen Maxima’, while other four samples are plants reproduced by Laboratory of Biotechnology, Faculty of Biology, UGM. Sample used was V. tricolor leaves taken on leaf number three from the shoot. Isolation of genomic DNA from orchids following method of [16] by placing 100 μL of 3 % CTAB solution into a 1.5 mL tube, then ± 300 mg of plant material was cut about 0.5 cm2 and put into a tube containing 100 μL of 3 % CTAB and then crushed using a small pestle. After the leaf samples were crushed, 400 μL of CTAB was added. The solution was mixed until it was homogeneous, then the tubes were incubated in a water bath at a temperature of 55 °C to 65 °C for 30 min. Tube was added with 500 μL of chloroform then tube was shaken for 30 min at 100 rpm at room temperature. Tube is opened and closed to remove the gas then closed again. Tubes were centrifuged at 5 000 rpm for 5 min at room temperature. Supernatant in the form of a clear layer (300 μL to 400 μL) was transferred to a new 1.5 mL tube. To the tube is added isopropanol in a ratio of 1: 1 with the clear solution mentioned above or as much as 300 μL to 400 μL. DNA solution tube is mixed until it is homogeneous by turning the tube back and forth 6 times then leaving it for 10 min. Furthermore, the tubes were centrifuged at 5 000 rpm for 5 min at room temperature. Supernatant was discarded then the DNA precipitate was washed using 70 % alcohol as much as 100 μL then centrifuged again at 5000 rpm for 2 min at room temperature. Supernatant was removed then the DNA precipitate was dried for 30 min at room temperature. After the DNA precipitate was dry, 100 μL of 10 T 0.1 E pH 7.6 was added.

2.4 Amplification of the HSP70 and Actin geneby using Polymerase Chain Reaction (PCR)

Amplification of HSP70 gene fragment from V.tricolor genome, two degenerate primers of HSP70 were used [7], namely DegHSP70 F2 (5’-SCARG ARTTCAAGMGSAAG), DegHSP70R2 (5’-TAVACCT GGATSAGSACRC), DegHSP70F3 (5’-ATYCCSACCA AGAAGGAG), DegHSP70R3 (5’-MGYTTAG TCSAC CTCCTC). Two primers amplify sequences with sizes 600 bp to 680 bp. For internal control of the PCR reaction, Actin gene was used as internal control, Actin primers used were specific primers for Actin gene, i.e ACT4F (5’-GTATTCCCTAGCATTGTTGGT ) and ACT4R (5’-CAGAGTGAGAATACCTCGTTTG)[16] resulting in a size of 114 bp amplified DNA fragment. For amplification, 2 μl of V. tricolor genomic DNA was prepared, then five PCR premix was made for each primer type. The composition required is Bioline PCR Kit 12.5 μl, Nuclease Free Water 8.5 μl, DegHSP70F Primer 10μM 1 μl, and DegHSP70R primer 10μM 1 μl. The genomic DNA sample is mixed with the above ingredients into a 0.2 mL tube. The tubes are homogenated and then spindown. Sample was then fed into a PCR machine (BOECO, UK) with a predenaturation temperature of 95 °C for 1 min, denaturation of 95 °C for 30 s, annealing 49 °C (HSP70) and 51 °C (Actin) for 30 s, and elongation of 72 °C for 1 min. Then there are 72 °C post-extension for 90 s, and 4 °C 15 min for hold phase. The cycle was repeated 30 times.

2.5 HSP70 and Actin visualization

Visualization was carried out by using electrophoresis in 1.4 % agarose by weighing 0.3 g agarose dissolved in 30 mL TE 1x. Wait 1 minute then heat it with a hot plate until homogeneous. After heating, it was waited until the temperature was ± 60 °C, then 5 μL of Goodview dye was mixed and shaken until it was homogeneous. The solution is poured carefully into a mold that has been fitted with a comb to make a well. The solution is kept so that there are no bubbles and waits for agarose to solidify for about 30 min. Comb was removed and agarose gel was transferred to the electrophoresis tank. Furthermore 1x TBE solution was poured into the tank until the well was filled. Then 3 μl of DNA solution was poured in the gel well. DNA marker used as much as 3 μL and 1 μL of loading dye. Solution of DNA marker and loading dye is homogenized with a pipette by way of up and down then put into the well. Press the button to start electrophoresis, electric current is set to 50 V and according to 30 min. After that, the gel is lifted and placed on a UV illuminator coated with plastic wrap. Gel was visualized using a UV lamp at a wavelength of 312 nm. Visible DNA bands were photographed using a digital camera.

2.6 Sequence analysis of HSP70 gene

Sequence Analysis of V. tricolor HSP70 gene was conducted using trimming and contigting PCR product DNA fragments as the results of forward and reverse primary sequencing using CLC genomic workbench 12 (Qiagen). Contig results then identified using BLASTX ( and identified its gene structure using NCBI conserved domains (ccd) ( Amino acid alignment, testing models for phylogeny trees and making phylogeny trees using MEGAX [29; 30]. HSP: 325 AA, gene structure: Heat shock 70 kDa protein, Phylogeny tree arranged using Maximum Likelihood method and Dayoff matrix based model with 100 replications [31].

3 Results and discussions

Based on morphological observations on Vanda tricolor that used as self-pollinated parent of V. tricolor to produce V. tricolor ‘Queen Maxima’, V. tricolor has a perennial, epiphytic, monopodial herbaceous plant habits (Figure 1A). Adventitious roots are cylindrical in shape with thick velamen on the root surface, aerial and dorsiventral root type. Stem is elongated flat, has nodes and internodes. Leaves are ribbon-type (ligulate), flat leaf edges (integer), asymmetrical incised leaf tips. Young leaves are duplicative and arranged alternately (distichous). Inflorescentia type pleurant, bunch (raceme), flowers arranged alternately (distichous) with 6 to 10 flowers. Flowers fragrant, basic color of flowers is white NN155B with moderate red dots 185B (Figure 1B). Lips (labellum) consist of three lobes. Lip base is widened to side and moderate red 185B in color. Center is moderate red 185B. Tip is dark purplish pink 186C and bends downward. Lip tip is split in half. Fruit is oval, strong yellow green 143B and has six ribs (Figure 1C). Seeds are orange brownish 165B, microscopic and millions in number (Figure 1D-E). Morphological characters possessed by V. tricolor are in accordance with the descriptions mentioned in literature [4].

Pollination on V. tricolor flowers was carried out on 11 March 2020 by Queen Maxima. Pollination is done by self-pollination. After pollination is carried out, post pollination observations has been done with morphological changes observation that occur until the fruit is formed and ready to be harvested. After pollination, 3 to 9 months later, fruit is ready to be harvested. Fruit ripeness of orchid depends on the type of orchid itself. For example in Dendrobium, fruit will ripen at the age of 3 to 4 months. Vanda, generally the fruit will ripen after 6 to 7 months. In Cattleya, fruit will ripen after 9 months. Orchid fruit is classified as a lantern fruits. This means that the fruit will break when ripe [18].

Observation of V. tricolor that was pollinated by Queen Maxima was carried out for 120 d (four months). After four months, the fruit is harvested and grown in vitro. Based on the results of post-pollination flower morphological observations on V. tricolor, it can be seen that there are differences including the size and color of flowers components.

Before pollination (H-0), length of flower stalk reached 12 cm and ovarian zone had not been measured. Flower stalk are white NN155B and flowers are dominated by white NN155D. Five days after pollination (H-5), flower stalk shortened to 11 cm and ovarian zone was 1 cm long. Flower stalk and ovarian zone is white NN155B. Flower is dominated by moderate red 185B (Figure 2).

Twenty days after pollination (H-20), flower stalks shortened to 9.1 cm and ovarian zone increased in length by 2.9 cm. Flower stalk and ovarian zone are pale yellow 165D. Flowers are drying up and dominated by orange brownish color 165B. Forty days after pollination (H-40), flower stalks shortened to 7.8 cm and ovarian zone increased to 4.2 cm in length. Flower stalks and ovarian zone are brilliant yellow green color 142B. Flowers are dominated by strong brown color 172B (Figure 2).

Eighty days after pollination (H-80), length of ovarian zone (5.8 cm) was almost same as length of the flower stalk (6.2 cm). Flower stalks and ovarian zones are strong yellow green 143C. Flowers are strong brown 172B. Four months after pollination (H-120), flower stalks were shorter than the length of ovarian zone, namely, flower stalk was 5.7 cm and ovarian zone was 6.3 cm. Flower stalks and ovarian zones are strong yellow green 143B. Flowers are strong brown 172B (Figure 2).

Morphological observations indicated that along with growth and development of the fruit that occurred after pollination was accompanied by morphological changes in the flowers. As the fruit grows towards maturity, flower perianthium will wither and dry more. When flower perianthium becomes dry, ovaries zone will get bigger and longer with age. After four months of observation, fruit is harvested. This age is relatively young when compared to literature which states that Vanda fruit ripens at the age of 6 to 7 months. Orchid fruit that will be planted in vitro should not be too old, because the fruit can be damaged during sterilization process and easily contaminate.

Orchid seeds from fruit that are too old have a low germination percentage. High content of phenolic compounds in seeds from old fruit is causing difficulty in germination process. According to [18], seeds in fruit that are too old accumulate tannins. Meanwhile, seeds from too young fruit take a relatively longer time to germinate. In addition, a low percentage of germination can be caused by immature embryos [19]. Based on a study [20], seeds from five month old V. tricolor fruits have the ability to develop into protocorms faster than seeds from seven month old fruits. Therefore, in this study seeds from fruit of V. tricolor which were four months old were used to see the viability and germination percentage of seeds (Figure 3 and Table 1).

In vitro propagation of V. tricolor ‘Queen Maxima’, in addition to strengthening the cooperative relationship between two countries, it also aims to conserve V. tricolor through ex situ and in situ conservation strategy. V. tricolor ‘Queen Maxima’ which has grown up will not only be reproduced for ex situ conservation, but this orchids will also be returned to their original habitat on Mount Merapi as an in situ conservation strategy.

Orchid seeds are very small with lengths ranging from 100 μm to 200 μm, widths ranging from 200 μm to 500 μm, weight ranges from 0.39 μg to 3.6 μg which are stored in orchid fruit with capsule form. V. tricolor are white when young (fruit 5 months or less than 6 months after pollination), yellow or brown when ready to sow (6 mon to 6.5 mon after pollination), and black if they are too old (>7 mon) [5]. The best fruit for bottle orchid production is 6 to 6.5 months after pollination.

Sowing of orchid seeds in the laboratory requires nutrients that are packaged in a basic medium. It is known that there are several basic media commonly used, namely MS media (Murashige and Skoog) for micropropagation of orchids in general, NP (New Phalaenopsis) for micropropagation of the Phalaenopsis orchids genera, and VW (Vacin and Went) for micropropagation of orchids from Dendrobium genera [22]. In vitro propagation requires a growing medium that contains both macro and micro-nutrients that support plant growth and aseptic conditions [23]. The result of in vitro propagation is a uniform and virus-free plant [24].

Germination and developmental stages of the orchid seed begins with slowly breaking of testa which protects embryo. In orchid seeds that come from old fruit, the presence of this testa will be clearly visible. After testa is broken, white round embryo was able to seen. Embryo then develops into a protocorm which is round and yellow in color (Figure 3). Protocorm formation in V. tricolor orchids occurs two to four weeks after sowing [8]. Seed germination is characterized by imbibition of water by the tissues in the seeds so that the volume increases. Increased hydration of seed coat results in increased permeability to O2 and CO2. Swelling of seed causes seed coat to burst. Plants need at least three external factors before germination can occur, namely sufficient water, right temperature, sufficient oxygen and light.

Germination percentage of V. tricolor ‘Queen Maxima’ seeds in the three mediums showed the highest percentage of stage 4 was obtained in VW medium, then MS medium, and the lowest was in NP medium. (Figure 3 and Table 1). Level of seed viability is relatively good, because seeds have started the initiation of germination, although they have not germinated completely in 28 d.

The VW medium is a very simple in vitro medium compared to other orchid mediums. The content of macronutrient elements only consists of sources of N, namely (NH4) 2SO4 525 mg / L, KNO3 500 mg / L, MgSO4 7H2O 250 mg / L, Ca3 (PO4) 200 mg / L, KH2PO4 250 mg, Fe2 (C4H4O6) 3 28, and the micronutrient content of MnSO4 H2O 7.5 mg. It turns out to be very appropriate for the growth of V.tricolor orchids. This is likely in accordance with the epiphytic way of life of V.tricolor attached to the host tree and can be in symbiosis with mycorrhizae for natural life [24]. Factors that influence the success of in vitro propagation include parent plants, types of explants, culture medium, types and concentrations of growth regulators, nitogens and carbon sources, and in vitro conditions [26].

Specialty of V. tricolor in dealing with environmental stress in the form of high temperatures is by having the Heat Shock Protein (HSP) gene. This HSP gene plays a role in maintaining cell homeostasis [7]. Apart from detecting the presence of HSP70 gene in V. tricolor with two degenerate primers types [7], the presence of Actin gene in V. tricolor was also carried out. Actin is a component of cytoskeleton which has vital functions and it expressed in all tissues [27]. Actin is used as an internal control because it is the most stable housekeeping gene.

In this study, three V. tricolor samples were used to detect of HSP70 gene in their genome to serve as superior parent for selfing purpose. Sample number 1 (VT 1) is V. tricolor which is the parent of V. tricolor ‘Queen Maxima’. Based on the results of study, it could be seen that the three samples had amplified both the HSP70 gene and ACTIN gene (Figure 4). In the three samples, HSP70 gene was amplified by using DegHSP70 F2R2 and DegHSP70 F3R33 primers with length 600 bp and 680 bp, respectively (Figure 4B), ACTIN gene can be amplified from all samples, which were indicated by the presence of a DNA band with length 114 bp (Figure 4C).

The evolutionary history was inferred by using the Maximum Likelihood method and Dayhoff matrix based model [29]. The bootstrap consensus tree inferred from 100 replicates [30] was taken to represent the evolutionary history of the taxa analyzed [31]. Branches corresponding to partitions reproduced in less than 50 % bootstrap replicates were collapsed. The percentage of replicate trees in which the associated taxa clustered together in the bootstrap test (100 replicates) are shown next to the branches [31]. Initial tree(s) for the heuristic search were obtained automatically by applying Neighbor-Join and BioNJ algorithms to a matrix of pairwise distances estimated using a JTT model, and then selecting the topology with superior log likelihood value. A discrete Gamma distribution was used to model evolutionary rate differences among sites (5 categories (+G, parameter = 0.1207)). This analysis involved 15 amino acid sequences. There were a total of 325 positions in the final dataset. Evolutionary analyses were conducted in MEGA X [30].The amino acid analysis of the HSP70 protein of V.tricolor ‘Queen Maxima’ showed that the highly conserved amino acid motif in the HSP70 protein of V.tricolor is PTZ00009 Superfamily motif (Figure 5A) and the phylogenetic tree showed that HSP70 protein of V.tricolor ‘Queen Maxima has 87 % similarity to HSP70 of P. equestris (Figure 5B). This is different from the findings of Semiarti and Rozikin [7] which show that HSP70 of V.tricolor Merapi was very different from other plants. including other orchids. The HSP70 sequence of P. equestris [34] which was taken from root, stem, leaf, flower buds, column, lip, petal, sepal and three developmental stages of seeds from a three-year-old plant has very similar structure to the HSP70 gene of V.tricolor. The similarity of the HSP70 protein structure in these two orchid species corresponds to the ability of these two plants as tropical epiphytic orchids to adapt to environmental factors, especially hot temperatures. This is also in accordance with Drini [36] that all eukaryotic genomes encode multiple members of the HSP70 family, which evolved distinctive structural and functional features in response to specific environmental constraints.

Beside that, the beautiful flowers of V.tricolor also have a unique aroma, due to the presence of phytochemicals of aromatic compounds in V. tricolor flowers such as fatty acid derivates, monoterpenoids, sesquiterpenoids, benzenoids, phenylpropanoids, hydrocarbons and other oxygenated compounds. These compounds are unique in V. tricolor [32]. The unique aroma produced in V. tricolor flowers potentially be used as raw material for aroma therapy in the field of pharmacology. Several compounds in Vanda also have pharmacological activities, including anti-inflammatory (imbricatin compounds; gigantol and methoxycoe lonin), anti-aging (vandateroside; eucomic acid; imbricatin; methoxycoe lonin; and gigantol), and anti-depressants (phenol compounds). Phenanthrene compounds in Vanda have function as antioxidants, hepatoprotective and aphrodisiacs [35]. Based on these data, it can be ascertained that orchids from the Vanda genera, especially V. tricolor, have many benefits apart from a botanical aspect, therefore the efforts are needed to preserve these orchids. The right biotechnology application to do is mass propagation of V. tricolor both in vitro and ex vitro to conserve these orchids ex situ and in situ.

4 Conclusion

Based on in vitro seed germination data, it can be concluded that Vanda tricolor Lindley var. Suavis ‘Queen Maxima’ can thrive (> 90 %) in all culture media and the best in VW media. V. tricolor has the HSP70 protein with the amino acid motif super family PTZ00009, which is 87 % similar to the HSP70 protein from the Phalaenopsis equestris orchid, which supports V. tricolor to be superior to high temperature environments. This supports the conservation effort of V. tricolor plants both in situ and ex situ.
