Abstract


In the present investigation, an attempt has been made to accelerate the flavonoid synthesis in Baliospermum montanum (Wild.) Muell-Arg., Dryptes roxburghii (Wall.) Huresawa and Codiaeum variegatum (L.) Bl, members of Euphorbiaceae family. Internodal explants were used to induce callus. Maximum growth of callus was observed in Baliospermum montanum and Codiaeum variegatum at 2mg/L and 3mg/L of 2,4-D respectively whereas Dryptes roxburghii showed maximum growth of callus at 3mg/L of BAP. Suspension culture was obtained from well developed callus. Three elicitors were used to induce flavonoid synthesis namely phenylalanine, copper sulphate and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. Among three, phenylalanine was found to be the best elicitor and maximum production of flavonoid was observed in Baliospermum montanum.

Author Keywords: Baliospermum montanum, Dryptes roxburghii, Codiaeum variegatum, callus, suspension culture, Elicitor and flavonoid.
