Plant cell cultures of Centella asiatica produce small quantities of centellosides: madecassosid > asiaticosid > madecassic acid > asiatic acid. To obtain a more efficient production system of these bioactive triterpenoid compounds, we developed a process where the substrate, α-amyrin, was converted into centellosides by cell suspensions of C. asiatica… CONTINUE READING
