Thymol- a secondary product from callus cultures of ajowan (Carum copticum)



Thymol- a secondary product from callus cultures of ajowan (Carum copticum)



Journal of Food Science and Technology, India 24(6): 322-324



Callus cultures of C. copticum were established from mature seeds on MS media to study thymol production in vitro. Undifferentiated white callus was obtained on basal medium containing 2,4-D at 3 mu g/ml. The absence of 2,4-D and presence of IAA resulted in the formation of chlorophyllous callus. Addition of NAA and kinetin to the IAA-containing medium resulted in the initiation of organogenesis and the formation of semi-differentiated callus.
