Effect of elicitors on plant cell suspension culture for the enhancement of secondary metabolite production


Author(s): Ganesh C Nikalje, Zimare SB and Shelke DB

Abstract: In present era, different tissue culture techniques are applied to enhance secondary metabolites production by triggering stress response. These stresses include application of elicitors, biotransformation, change in environmental conditions, change in medium constituents, precursors, etc. Among them, elicitors are substances that induce defense responses in plants. Elicitors are introduced into various organ cultures and in cell suspension cultures to increase the stress tolerance. The present review focuses on secondary metabolite production in plant cell suspension culture. This will help in conservation of rare and endangered medicinally important plants and it will also provide increased secondary metabolite production with less time and low cost.
