Author(s): Tamanna Talreja, Lalita Yadav and Asha Goswami
Abstract: Plant parts collected in summer and winters as well as unorganized cultures of some medicinal plants were analyzed for production of endogenous ascorbic acid. Unorganized cultures (calli) were initiated using various plant parts in selected plant species Cocculus pendulus, Tinospora cordifolia and Moringa oleifera, on MS Medium supplemented with different combinations and concentrations of hormones by frequent subculturing. Ascorbic acid production was compared quantitatively in all plant parts and unorganized cultures harvested at maximum growth index.
