Medicinal and Aromatic Plants, Volume 1
Y. P. S. Bajaj
Springer-Verlag, Jan 1, 1988 - Aromatic plants - 550 pages
Treating secondary metabolites in cell cultures of plants with potential usage in the pharmaceutical industry, this volume concentrates on the individual plant species, their distribution, economic importance, conventional propagation and storage of germplasm. Special emphasis is laid on the potential of industrial in vitro production of compounds of medical and pharmaceutical relevance. Three sections deal with (I) micropropagation, immobilization, cryopreservation, bioreactors, production of secondary metabolites; (II) production through cell cultures of antitumor compounds, L-dopa, shikonin, anthraquinine, tropane and morphinan alkaloids, berberine, caffeine, saponines, valeoptriates, rosmarinic acid, cardenolides, etc; (III) distribution, economic importance, conventional propagation, in vitro production of various metabolites in "Cannabis," "Centaurium," "Cinchona," "Digitalis," "Duboisia," "Hypoxis," "Lithospermum," "Ochrosia," "Paeonia," "Panax," "Papavar," "Rehmannia," and "Rhazya."
