Comparison of Chemical constituents of tissue cultured and field grown plants of Duchesnea indica, (Andr.) Focke
B.T Umesh, John E Thoppil
To investigate the chemical constituents of the herbage extract of the in vitro derived plants of Indian Strawberry, Duchesnea indica, (Andr.) Focke, the essential oil isolated was subjected to GC-MS analysis. The fresh tissue cultured plants of Duchesnea indica was shade dried at room temperature for 30 days and the dried, flaked and powdered plant material was hydrodistilled in a Clevenger apparatus for 4 hours at 100 Â°C. The phytochemical screening studies identified 25 chemical constituents in the herbage extract; most of them are having proven beneficial activities. The major components analysed was carvacryl acetate, valencene, nona hexacontanoic acid, aistalone, dehydro aromadendrene, eicosane, 2-hexa decan â€“ 1 ol, aromadendrene etc. The chemical constituents of in vitro derived plants were different from the components of field grown plants.
