Correlation of cultivation time of Panax ginseng with metabolic profiles of nine ginsenosides and mRNA expression of genes encoding major biosynthetic enzymes

Abstract

Ginseng (Panax ginseng C. A. Meyer) is one of the most important Chinese medicinal herbs. This medicinal plant produces numerous bioactive substances, including triterpene saponins of the ginsenoside-type. The endogenous levels of all types of ginsenosides largely determine the therapeutic quality of P. ginseng. Here, a field investigation was conducted to… (More)
