plant cell suspension culture for the production of food additives

Plant suspension cell culture is a rare, but constantly growing technology that has already been used to produce valuable chemicals such as the anti-cancer agent paclitaxel (Taxol) and its derivatives. While a variety of bioactive compounds are found in plant species, they cannot be easily extracted and purified due to very low contents in native plants. Further attempts to transform the production machinery into model plant often fail to inhibitive cost. Plant suspension tissue culture then becomes […]
