For the first time callus and suspension cultures of Linum mucronatum ssp. annenum were initiated, grown in darkness at 25 degrees C and analyzed for lignans. 6-Methoxypodophyllotoxin was the main lignan besides smaller amounts of podophyllotoxin isolated and identified by chromatographic methods as well as by 1H NMR.
