Lignans from cell suspension cultures of Phyllanthus niruri, an Indonesian medicinal plant.
This is the first report of cell suspension cultures of P. niruri that successfully produce lignans, and comparison of the lignan profiles of cell suspensions, callus cultures, aerial plant parts, roots, and seeds showed significant differences. Expand
Boesenbergia Pandurata Roxb., An Indonesian Medicinal Plant: Phytochemistry, Biological Activity, Plant Biotechnology
Chemical constituents of this plant and their pharmacological activities are reviewed and a brief view through biotechnological perspective concerning the several possibilities to produce several valuable prenylated flavonoids from this plant is given. Expand
Lignan profile of Piper cubeba, an Indonesian medicinal plant
The lignan profile of the aerial part of Piper cubeba L. (Piperaceae) was determined using GC, GC-MS and HPLC. The number of lignans found in the leaves was 15, followed by berries and the stalksExpand
Production of justicidin B, a cytotoxic arylnaphthalene lignan from genetically transformed root cultures of Linum leonii.
The genetic transformation in hairy roots was proven by PCR analysis, which showed integration of rol A and rol C genes into the plant genome, and Apoptotic properties of justicidin B are reported for the first time. Expand
Dihydroflavonol and Flavonol Derivatives from Macaranga Recurvata
Two new dihydroflavonol derivatives, macarecurvatins A and B, have been isolated from the leaves of Macaranga recurvata(Euphorbiaceaae), along with the known compounds diisoprenylaromadendrin,Expand
Effect of Agrobacterium rhizogenes and elicitation on the asiaticoside production in cell cultures of Centella asiatica
Elicitation and genetically transformed hairy root cultures of C. asiatica produced asiaticsoside up to 172% higher than untreated callus, which is a need to enhance the production ofAsiaticoside from C.AsIatica. Expand
Optimization of genetic transformation of Artemisia annua L. Using Agrobacterium for Artemisinin production
The Agrobacterium tumefaciens AGl1 strain was the most effective to be transformed in to A. annua than GV3101 and LBA4404 strain and the effect of organosilicone surfactants produced the highest efficiency of transformation. Expand
