Kinetin Induced Changes in Rutin content in Knautia sarajevensis (G. Beck) Szabó Shoot Cultures

  title={Kinetin Induced Changes in Rutin content in Knautia sarajevensis (G. Beck) Szab{\'o} Shoot Cultures},
  author={Erna Karalija},
Knautia sarajevensis, Dipsacaceae, is an endemic species found at wood margins and meadows only on mountains of Dinaric Alps. Members of this family are widely used in traditional medicine as rich sources of pharmacologically important substances. Since it is well known that flavonoid compounds are one of the main carriers of biological activities of plant extracts, the aim of this study was to investigate cytokinin effects in concentration changes of flavonoid constituents. Presence of four…

In silico prediction of the inhibitory effect of phytochemical components extracted from Knautia sarajevensis on the main protease of SARS-CoV-2 virus

Structural interactions of compounds isolated from the Bosnian-Herzegovinian endemic plant Knautia sarajevensis showed that these compounds could potentially have antiviral effects against SARS-CoV-2 and indicated that K. saraj evensis could be potentially utilized as an adjuvant in the treatment of coronavirus disease 2019.



In vitro plant regeneration and accumulation of flavonoids in Hypericum mysorense.

This is the first report to establish micropropagation of H. mysorense and evidence for the presence of flavonoids in in vitro cultures, which could be used for large scale production in pharmaceuticals.


Quantification data revealed that the total flavonoid content was higher in tissue culture than in plant parts of C. rotundus, and in vivo studies showed higher flavonoids content in leaf in free form and bound form.
