Protoberberine alkaloids from callus and cell suspension cultures of Tinospora cordifolia



Protoberberine alkaloids from callus and cell suspension cultures of Tinospora cordifolia



Pharmaceutical Biology 41(2): 81-86



Callus and cell suspension cultures were established from Tinospora cordifolia stem explants. Accumulation of berberine and jatrorrhizine (protoberberine alkaloids) was observed in both callus and cell suspension cultures. The alkaloids were also exudated into the surrounding nutrient medium by non-immobilized and immobilized cultures. The root extracts of T. cordifolia showed higher levels of jatrorrhizine compared to the levels of berberine.
