AcronymSEMMEP

Proposal titleEstablishment and operation of a pilot cell factory for the production of SEcondary

Metabolites from MEdicinal Plants, in particular antioxidants

AbstractThis research proposal is focused on plant biotechnology. The main objective of the project

is the establishment of an in vitro cell factory from medicinal plants in order to produce

secondary metabolites which are useful for the agricultural, food, pharmaceutical and

cosmetics sectors. The main steps to be followed are: a) in vitro culture of Labiatae

species, b) regeneration, somatic embryogenesis and micropropagation, and c) enhanced

production of secondary metabolites in vitro biotransformation) molecular markets of

clonal propagation and in vitro production. Seeds and plants of Labiatae species will be

collected, a combination of various plant growth regulators, nutrient media and culture

conditions will be investigated and various protocols for plant regeneration. and tissue

cultures will be studied. Furthermore, protocols for somaclonal will be developed, isolation

and chemical characterisation of the natural products in vitro produced will be conducted

using Flash Chromatography, HPLC, GS, NMR, etc. and molecular markers (protein and

genomic) will be developed and used. Trial tests will be carried out for evaluating the

quality profile of the gained products.
