Abstract

Callus cultures of Oenothera laciniata grown on LS agar medium supplemented with IAA and kinetin produced large amounts of the macrocyclic ellagitannin dimer, oenothein B, and a trimer, oenothein A, accompanied with related monomeric hydrolysable tannins. The content of the main compound oenothein B (65 mg/g dry wt) in calli cultured on modified LS medium containing 10 mM NH4+ and 5 mM NO3- was nearly two times higher than that in intact leaves.
