We have established cell-suspension cultures of mountain ginseng (Panax ginseng G A. Mayer), and have attempted to increase the yield of saponin by manipulating our processing method and culturing factors (e.g., media strengths; the presence of plant growth regulators or sucrose; ratios of NO+ 3/ NH- 4). Maximum biomass yield was obtained in media containing 2,4-D. However, saponin productivity was much higher in a medium comprising either IBA or NAA; 7.0 mg/L IBA was optimal for promoting both… CONTINUE READING
