A green callus culture of Croton sublyratus Kurz established from the leaf explants appeared to actively synthesize two well-known phytosterols, beta-sitosterol and stigmasterol. The phytosterol biosynthesis was highly active during the linear phase of the culture. Feeding of [1-13C]glucose into the callus culture at this growth phase showed that the label from glucose was highly incorporated into both phytosterols. Isolation of the labeled products followed by 13C NMR analysis revealed that… Expand
