-Plant cell cultures rather than differentiated plants are the preferred material for studying secondary product formation and elucidate the enzyme pathways responsible for isoquinoline alkaloid formation. Using callus and cell suspension cultures of different BwberiJ species, we studied the incorporation ofearly precursors like tyrosine, dopa, tyramine, and dopamine into jatrorrhizine. Besides tyrosine, tyramine and, to a lesser extent, dopamine were incorporated into the aldehyde precursor… Expand

Biosynthesis of Alkaloids Using Plant Cell Cultures
With an estimated 7000 individual structures thus far isolated from plant material, alkaloids are the most diverse of all low molecular weight nitrogen containing compounds. The amount of nitrogenExpand
Biosynthetic Studies of Protoberberine and Related Alkaloids Using Plant Cell Cultures
The benzylisoquinolines comprise the largest group of alkaloids with about 2000 structures some of which possess valuable medicinal importance (such as codeine or morphine). During the past years theExpand
Formation of Secondary Metabolites in Cultured Plant Cells and Its Impact on Pharmacy
TLDR
There are indeed good chances that higher plants will continue to be an important source of novel agents and that recently detected plant products such as forskolin have good chances to be introduced as new drugs. Expand
Alternative final steps in berberine biosynthesis in Coptis japonica cell cultures
TLDR
In Coptis japonica cell cultures an alternative pathway has been discovered which leads from (S)-tetrahydrocolumbamine via (S-canadine to berberine, which has many physical properties in common with the already known (S), but grossly differs from the latter enzyme in its cofactor requirement (Fe) and its substrate specificity.

Developmental regulation of benzylisoquinoline alkaloid biosynthesis in opium poppy plants and tissue cultures
TLDR
Alkaloid biosynthesis in opium poppy is an excellent model system to investigate the developmentalregulation and cell biology of complex metabolic pathways, and the relationship between metabolic regulation and cell-type specific differentiation. Expand
Purification and properties of (S)-tetrahydroprotoberberine oxidase from suspension-cultured cells of Berberis wilsoniae.
TLDR
This catalyst was responsible for the conversion of (S)-tetrahydrocolumbamine to the key intermediate, columbamine, in the metabolic pathway leading to berberine, jatrorrhizine and palmatine. Expand
Activities of enzymes catalyzing benzylisoquinoline alkaloid biosynthesis in Annona diversifolia saff. during early development
TLDR
The activities of these enzymes in embryos provides evidence that alkaloid biosynthesis at early developmental stages is related to embryo growth and development. Expand
Cultivated Plant Cells: An Enzyme Source for Alkaloid Formation
TLDR
Plant cell cultures have been proved in the past to be an efficient source for the isolation of novel enzymes and are a valuable tool fur the investigation of the biosynthesis of secondary metabolites in alkaloid field. Expand
Isoquinolines ( Papaver Alkaloids)
TLDR
It is suggested that the development of appropriate nutritional and hormone regimes would promote the production of morphinans in the plant cell culture to levels similar to those observed in the whole plant. Expand
CHAPTER 17 – Isoquinolines
TLDR
The results show that callus tissues have sufficient biosynthetic ability and many results of plant chemistry can enhance the development of plant chemotaxonomy. Expand

Isoquinoline alkaloids
TLDR
Kinetic analyses plotted in double reciprocal form reveal that berberine and 1,2,10,11-tetrahydroxyaporphine are simplelinear competitive inhibitors with respect to ATP, whereas sanguinarine and papaveroline are simple linear noncompetitive inhibitors. Expand
