The anti-neoplastic herb Catharanthus roseus (Madagascar periwinkle; Family Apocynaceae), known to harbor >130 bioactive terpenoid indole alkaloids (TIAs), is in global attention of transgenic research for pathway engineering. This medicinal herb has a long folklore history of its usage in the treatment of several health disorders owing to the presence of a variety of secondary metabolites, particularly the alkaloids, phenolics and anthocyanins. Among its various bioactive molecules, C. roseus… CONTINUE READING
