Biotransformation of cholesterol to diosgenin by freely suspended and immobilised cells of Dioscorea bulbifera L.

Abstract

The cell suspension cultures, established from the friable callus which was risen from the nodal segments of Dioscorea bulbifera L. in Murashige-Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with indole-3-butryic acid (20 mg L(-1)), was examined for cell growth in MS medium fed with cholesterol (50 mg L(-1) and 100 mg L(-1)) after 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, and 18 days of culture… (More)
