The content of total phenolic compounds and flavonoids was determined in methanol extracts of root, stem, leaves, and inflorescences from wild growing and greenhouse cultivated plants of Castilleja tenuiflora. The antioxidant activity in each extract was evaluated using three in vitro models: scavenging of free radicals with 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl(More)
Castilleja tenuiflora, a species highly valued for its medicinal properties, is threatened in the wild. We evaluated the effects of six different immersion cycles in a temporary immersion bioreactor on C. tenuiflora shoot growth, proliferation rate, phenolics content, flavonoid content, and antioxidant activity. We also evaluated the regeneration capacity(More)
Castilleja tenuiflora Benth. (Orobanchaceae) in vitro cultures are alternative sources of phenylethanoid glycosides (PhGs), promising natural products for chronic diseases treatment because of their extensive range of biological activities. To increase the yields of these bioactive compounds, the identification of factors affecting their biosynthesis is(More)
Cuphea aequipetala Cav. (Lythraceae), a species highly valued for its medicinal properties, is threatened in the wild. To provide an alternative source of material for production of bioactive compounds, we established adventitious root cultures of C. aequipetala and determined their phenolic compounds contents and antioxidant activity. Cultures were(More)
