The action of light on the formation of stilbenes and the induction of stilbene synthase in dark-grown and light-grown callus of peanut (Arachis hypogaea) was investigated over the wavelength range from 250 to 400 nm. Ultraviolet light of 260–270 nm had a significant and selective effect on the formation of resveratrol and isopentenylresveratrol. The callus… CONTINUE READING
