Berberine synthesis by callus and cell suspension cultures of Coscinium fenestratum

Abstract

Callus and cell suspension cultures of Coscinium fenestratum were established from sterile petiole segments on Murashige & Skoog (MS) medium, supplemented with 2,4-dichlorophenoxy acetic acid (2,4-D) and benzyl amino purine (BAP). The cells in the culture produced berberine as the major compound. NAA stimulated the product synthesis over 2,4-D. Presence of… (More)
