In vitro cultures of hairy root derived from Catharanthus roseus accumulate higher levels of indole alkaloids than cell suspension cultures. Hairy roots were interconverted to undifferentiated cells by manipulation of the culture medium. When the concentration of micronutrients in the culture medium was five times that of Phillips and Collins (1979) medium… CONTINUE READING
