Abstract

The culture of cells of Euphorbia tirucalli L. resulted in the formation of intracellular particles which osmium tetroxide staining and electron microscopy indicated to be oil bodies. Chemical analysis (TLC, HPLC, GLC and GC-MS) disclosed steroids, triterpenoids, and diterpenoids as the major oil components of the cultured cells.
