Production of secondary metabolites using plant cell cultures.

  title={Production of secondary metabolites using plant cell cultures.},
  author={Iryna M Smetanska},
  journal={Advances in biochemical engineering/biotechnology},
Plant cell cultures represent a potential source of valuable secondary metabolites which can be used as food additives, nutraceuticals, and pharmaceuticals. The synthesis of phytochemicals by the cell cultures in contrast to these in plants is independent of environmental conditions and quality fluctuations. In many cases, the chemical synthesis of metabolites is not possible or economically feasible. Moreover, the natural food additives are better accepted by consumers in contrast to those… CONTINUE READING
