Production of plumbagin from cell cultures of Plumbago rosea L.


Callus and suspension cultures derived from leaf explants of Plumbago rosea were established and plumbagin, a naphthoquinone, was isolated from them and confirmed by 1H NMR and electron-ionization mass spectroscopy. Maximum content of plumbagin was obtained in the stationary phase of growth (4.3 mg g−1 dry cell wt). Media pH, phytohormones and carbon… (More)
