Studies of Steroidal Sapogenins from Yucca aloefolia L. In Vivo and In Vitro Tissue Cultures
The genus Yucca is among the promising source with regard to their valuable steroidal sapogenin contents. Variety of Yucca species have been examined by wall M.E. and co-workers (1–5). Tomova and Panova (6) has examined sapogenins from leaves of Yucca aloefolia L. grown in Bulgaria. Recently Bedour and co-workers (7) have reported seasonal variation in sapogenin contents of Y. aloefolia. We have investigated steroidal sapogenin contents of Y. aloefolia L., leaves rhizomes, flowers and its eight month old callus tissue established on revised Murashige and Skoog’s (RT) medium from leaves.
