Comparison and evaluation of steroid alkaloid solasodine on in vivo and in vitro cultures of Solanum surattense Burm L
African Journal of Microbiology Research
Steroid alkaloid solasodine is a nitrogen analogue of diosgenin that is used as a raw material for synthesis of steroid drugs. Plant medicinal Solanum surattense (Solanaceae) is a rich source of solasodine. The purpose of this study was production and maintenance of callus from leaves and comparison of solasodine steroid alkaloid production in outdoor plants and in vitro calli. The leaves were collected, sterilized and placed on MS medium supplemented with BAP (1 to 2 mg/l) and NAA (1 to 3doi:10.5897/ajmr11.715 fatcat:oexuwzmisbb7zkuabmv3b4tzjy
