The inhibitory effect of Ca2+ on the flavonoid production of Tetrastigma hemsleyanum suspension cells induced by metal elicitors


Tetrastigma hemsleyanum suspension cells were treated with four metal salts to screen suitable elicitors for the promotion of plant cell biomass and flavonoid production. The effects of calcium ions (Ca2+) on induction were also studied. It was found that the most effective elicitors were 50 μM of the heavy metal ion copper (Cu2+) and 100 μM of the rare… (More)
