The transgenic hairy root cultures have revolutionized the role of tissue culture of plants in the production of secondary metabolites. It was shown that hairy roots often exhibit about the same or higher biosynthetic capacity for secondary metabolite production comparing to their normal roots. Using this methodology, a big number of chemical compounds has been synthesized. The role of single rol genes in secondary metabolite production was studied. Stimulatory effect on the production of… CONTINUE READING
