Suspension cultures initiated from two different Linum album seedlings accumulate either podophyllotoxin (PTOX, 2.6 mg/g DW) or 6-methoxypodophyllotoxin (6MPTOX, 5.4 mg/g DW) as main lignans. Two molecules of coniferyl alcohol are dimerized to pinoresinol which is converted via several steps into deoxypodophyllotoxin (DOP) which seems to be the branching(More)
Cell suspension cultures of Linum perenne L. Himmelszelt accumulate justicidin B as the main component together with glycosides of 7-hydroxyjusticidin B (diphyllin). A hypothetical biosynthetic pathway for these compounds is suggested. Justicidin B 7-hydroxylase (JusB7H) catalyzes the last step in the biosynthesis of diphyllin by introducing a hydroxyl(More)
