Plant Biotechnology Reports
Cell cultures of Cayratia trifolia (Vitaceae) a tropical lianas were maintained in Murashige and Skoog‚Äôs medium containing 0.25 mg l‚àí1 NAA 0.2 mg l‚àí1 kinetin and casein hydrolysate 250 mg l‚àí1. Cell suspension cultures of C. trifolia accumulate stilbenes (piceid resveratrol viniferin ampelopsin) which on elicitation by any of 500 ŒºM salicylic acid 100 ŒºM methyl jasmonate 500 ŒºM ethrel and 500 mg l‚àí1 yeast extract added on the 7th day were enhanced by 3- to 6-fold (5‚Äì11 mg l‚àí1) by the 15th day.
