Abstract

For the first time callus and suspension cultures of Linum mucronatum ssp. armenum were initiated, grown in darkness at 25°C and analyzed for lignans. 6-Methoxypodophyllotoxin was the main lignan besides smaller amounts of podophyllotoxin isolated and identified by chromatographic methods as well as by 1H NMR.
