Production of shikonin derivatives by cell suspension cultures of Lithospermum erythrorhizon
TLDR
The effects of all the components of White's medium on the production of shikonin derivatives by suspension cultures of Lithospermum erythrorhizon were investigated and Nitrate, phosphate, copper, sulfate and sucrose had especially marked effects. Expand
Production of shikonin derivatives by cell suspension cultures of Lithospermum erythrorhizon
TLDR
The yield of derivatives increased with an increase in the carbon chain length of the n-paraffin used as the solvent and when the oxygen supply was sufficient it reached the value found for the ordinary culture method. Expand
Production of shikonin derivatives by cell suspension cultures of Lithospermum erythrorhizon. III. Comparison of shikonin derivatives of cultured cells and ko-shikon
TLDR
The composition of shikonin derivatives produced by cell suspension cultures was similar to that of the ko-shikon, and the composition in cultured cells was found to fluctuate less than that ofThe ko-Shikon. Expand
Production of shikonin derivatives by cell suspension cultures of Lithospermum erythrorhizon
TLDR
It was found that ammonium as the nitrogen source conspicuously inhibited the production of shikonin derivatives in cell suspension cultures of Lithospermum erythrorhizon. Expand
[Evaluation on equivalence of pharmacological properties between natural crude drugs and their cultured cells based on their components. Accelerative effect of lithospermi radix and inhibitory effect
TLDR
It is concluded that the qualities and quantities of natural crude drugs and cultured cells are not so different each other and the almost same pharmacological effect expected on the basis of their uses is required. Expand
