Radioimmuno-Screening Methods for Secondary Plant Products

  • E. W. Weiler
Part of the Proceedings in Life Sciences book series (LIFE SCIENCES)


Since the pioneering work of Haberlandt in 1892, development in the field of plant cell culture has advanced to the point where bio-technological applications are now widely discussed. Among many others, the production of secondary plant products in cell cultures is one of the main points of interest (17). Originally it was found that a variety of typical secondary plant constituents are, under suitable conditions, formed in cell callus and suspension cultures (14). However, more recently it has been shown that in some special cases, the productivity of the cultured-cell system may even exceed that of the differentiated plants (21).
