Effect of sodium nitroprusside on growth and terpenoid indole alkaloid production in Catharanthus roseus hairy root cultures
Nitric oxide (NO) is known as a signaling molecule involved in elicitor‐induced defense responses of plants. Sodium nitroprusside (SNP), a donor of NO, stimulates catharanthine formation inExpand
