BACKGROUND AND AIMS The Madagascar periwinkle (Catharanthus roseus) produces the monoterpenoid alkaloid vindoline, which requires a specialized cell organization present only in the aerial tissues. Vindoline content can be affected by photoperiod and this effect seems to be associated with the morphogenetic capacity of branches; this association formed the basis of the study reported here. METHODS Vindoline-producing in vitro shoot cultures were exposed either to continuous light or a 16-h… CONTINUE READING
