Wei Zhang (Inventor), Christopher Franco (Inventor)

    Research output: Patent

    Abstract

    The invention discloses a method of producing a plant secondary metabolite of interest,comprising: (a) cultivating by suspension culture in a suitable nutrient medium plant cells that produce the secondary metabolite; (b) including within the suspension culture an amount of adsorbent and one or more elicitor agents suitable to increase production of the secondary metabolite; (c)recovering the secondary metabolite from the suspension culture. In a preferred emobidment the invention discloses a method of producing a stilbene plant secondary metabolite of interest, comprising: (a) cultivating by suspension culture in a suitable nutrient medium plant cells that produce a stilbene secondary metabolite; (b) including within the suspension culture an amount of adsorbent and one or more elicitor agents suitable to increase production of the stilbene; (c) recovering the stilbene from the suspension culture.
