In vitro rosmarinic acid accumulation in sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum L.)

In vitro rosmarinic acid accumulation in sweet basil (Ocimum basilicum L.)

Biotechnology Letters 25(5): 405-408

Leaf-derived suspension cultures of sweet basil, Ocimum basilicum L. accumulated rosmarinic acid up to 10 mg g-1 dry wt, a value up to 11 times higher than in callus cultures or in leaves of donor plants. Immobilized cells accumulated less than 15 micrograms rosmarinic acid g-1.
