The influence of salicylic acid elicitation of shoots, callus, and cell suspension cultures on production of naphtodianthrones and phenylpropanoids in Hypericum perforatum L.
Hypericum perforatum is a well known medicinal plant. The main pharmacological properties are due to the presence of naphtodianthrones such as hypericin and pseudohypericin. Unfortunately the levelsExpand
Plant regeneration of Iris pallida Lam. and Iris germanica L. via somatic embryogenesis from leaves, apices and young flowers
Irones are violet-scented ketonic compounds contained in the rhizome of certain species of iris. As cultivation of the iris tends to decrease, a selection program has been initiated to find the bestExpand
Two new disposable bioreactors for plant cell culture: The wave and undertow bioreactor and the slug bubble bioreactor
The present article describes two novel flexible plastic‐based disposable bioreactors. The first one, the WU bioreactor, is based on the principle of a wave and undertow mechanism that providesExpand
Inhibition of the expression and activity of cyclooxygenase-2 by chicory extract.
Chicory is a major source of fructans with reported prebiotic-bifidogenic properties. In the present study, the potential anti-inflammatory activities of chicory were investigated. Ethyl acetateExpand
Disposable bioreactors for plant micropropagation and mass plant cell culture.
Different types of bioreactors are used at Nestlé R&D Centre - Tours for mass propagation of selected plant varieties by somatic embryogenesis and for large scale culture of plants cells to produceExpand
Expression of a human anti-rabies virus monoclonal antibody in tobacco cell culture.
A Nicotiana tabacum cv. Xanthi cell culture was initiated from a transgenic plant expressing a human anti-rabies virus monoclonal antibody. Within 3 months, plant cell suspension cultures wereExpand
High isoflavone content and estrogenic activity of 25 year-old Glycine max tissue cultures.
Soy isoflavones are phytoestrogens which have been associated with several health benefits. In the present study, we report the production of isoflavones in a collection of 40 strains of soya cellExpand
Temperature response of Catharanthus roseus cells cultivated in liquid medium
Abstract Suspension cultures of Catharanthus roseus G. Don cells were grown at various temperatures from 16°C to 40°C. The doubling time of cell populations was strongly increased by a fall inExpand
Expression of the Human Milk Protein sCD14 in Tobacco Plant Cell Culture
The human milk protein sCD14 was expressed in tobacco plant cell cultures. Tobacco cells were transformed with a modified cd14 cDNA minus the GPI-tail and either the native human signal peptide (SP)Expand
Improvement of plastic-based disposable bioreactors for plant science needs
The present article describes two new applications of plastic-based cell culture systems in the plant biotechnology domain. Different types of bioreactors are used at Nestlé R&D Center-Tours forExpand
