Abstract

Abstract This review outlines the recent progress during the last 25 years concerning the biotransformation of exogenous substrates by plant cultured cells. The plant cultured cells have abilities of the regio- and stereoselective hydroxylation, oxido-reduction, hydrogenation, glycosylation, and hydrolysis for various organic compounds as well as microorganisms. The reaction types and the stereochemistry of the products involved in the biotransformations are described. The development of techniques using immobilized plant cells are also delineated.
