The Role of Phytoengineering in the Preparation and Production of Herbal Medicines
- 5 Downloads
The opportunities provided by biotechnology and phytoengineering methods for producing physiologically active substances (secondary metabolites) of plant origin are considered. It is noted that alkaloids, flavonoids, terpenes, steroids, and other compounds of plant origin are of pharmaceutical interest and can be prepared using cellular technologies and plant cell and tissue culture.
