Overview

Primary and Secondary Metabolism of Plant Cell Cultures II / Edition 1

Via specialized pathways plant cells are able to produce a variety of compounds. Plant cell cultures are ideal tools for studying these pathways of secondary metabolisms and can be exploited to accumulate and produce natural products in a defined and handable way. The present proceedings deal with plant cell culture techniques including the various possibilities of influencing and optimizing the biosynthesis of metabolites with special emphasis on compounds used as flavour or drugs, such as rosmarinic acid, digitoxin, isoflavones, and other alkaloids. A discussion of the biochemical and commercial aspects of product synthesis by plant cell cultures together with an outlook on future research complements these proceedings.
