Abstract

Hyssopus officinalis transformed roots were induced by infection with Agrobacterium rhizogenes. The transformed roots grew well in hormone-free Woody Plant liquid medium producing high levels of phenolic compounds such as rosmarinic acid (maximum: 8.03% of dry weight) and lithospermic acid B (maximum: 3.89% of dry weight).
