Abstract

In vitro multiple shoots, root, callus and cell suspension cultures of Withania somnifera exhibited the potentiality to produce pharmacologically active withanolides. Multiple shoots cultures exhibited an increase in withanolide A accumulation compared to shoots of the mother plant. In vitro generated root cultures as well as callus and suspension cultures also produced withanolides albeit at lower levels.
