The content of shikimic acid in the vegetative parts of a number of plants growing in the Altai Territory has been studied. The greatest content of shikimic acid (about 1.5%) was found in the coniferous needles of Scots pine. Shikimic acid accumulated in buckwheat cells cultivated in vitro on glyphosate-containing medium. The best results were obtained with buckwheat explants cultivated in vitro on Murashige and Skoog nutrient medium in the presence of 0.5 × 10−3 mg/L of glyphosate.
