The distribution patterns of flavonoids and cyclohexenyl chalcone derivatives in conventional propagated (CP) and in vitro-derived (CPA) field-grown plants of an important medicinal ginger, Boesenbergia rotunda, are described. A total of eight compounds were extracted from six organs (rootlet, rhizome, shoot base, maroon stem, stalk, and leaf) of the CP and(More)
Boesenbergia rotunda is a perennial ginger species rich in flavonoids, flavones, and cyclohexenyl chalcone derivatives. Several of these secondary metabolites have shown promising antiviral and anticancer activities, and thus, it is important to optimize methods for robust production of clonal materials. In this study, cell suspensions were established and(More)
