Abstract

Callus, cell and root culture systems of Salvia amplexicaulis were established to study its secondary metabolites. The roots of Salvia amplexicaulis cultured in Schenk-Hildebrand (SH) medium supplemented with 1 mg l(-1) Indol butyric acid have shown hairy root characteristics. Root cultures produced two triterpenes oleanolic and ursolic acids and a steroid beta-sitosterol in SH medium supplemented with 1 mg l(-1) IBA.
