In this study, we developed tissue culture protocol of Salvia dolomitica, a particularly fragrant sage and we evaluated the yield and the profile of essential oil (EO) produced from plants grown in vivo compared to in vitro plant material cultured in two light intensity growth conditions. Plant extracts secreted from glandular trichomes are, in Lamiacea, a(More)

Seven flavonol glycosides were isolated and identified from the aerial parts of Dorycnium hirsutum, together with catechin, D-pinitol, β-sitosterol, and stearic acid. The extracts and the isolated flavonol glycosides were evaluated for their antioxidant activity, using the DPPH test (radical scavenging) and the lipoxygenase assay (lipid peroxidation).
