Two morphologically distinct phenotypes of Centella asiatica (Type-1 and Type-2) in South Africa were compared in relation to the levels of triterpenoid saponins with the aim of assessing their potential for biotechnological manipulation of triterpenoid synthesis. The metabolites investigated included madecassoside and asiaticoside and their sapogenins madecassic—and asiatic acid; produced in cultured undifferentiated cells (cell suspensions and calli) and leaves. Weight determination in plant… CONTINUE READING
