Gymnema sylvestre is a natural source of gymnemic acids—a group of closely related triterpenoid saponins used in the treatment of diabetes. The present study is aimed at enhancing gymnemic acid production in G. sylvestre cell suspension cultures using the signaling molecules—methyl jasmonate and salicylic acid. Methyl jasmonate yielded the maximum gymnemic acid content of 135.41 ± 0.43 mg g−1 dry cell weight (DCW), 72 h after elicitor application. Salicylic acid, on the other hand, evoked a… CONTINUE READING
