Abstract: Hybanthus enneaspermus popularly known as Rathanapurushor, is known for its aphrodisiac, hypocholesterolemic, antiinflammatory, hepatoprotective, antiarthritic, antioxidant, cardioprotective, antiepileptic and other therapeutic activities. Hybanthus conserved in natural repositories is under severe intimidation because of its intensive use in local market for medicinal purposes. In view of its ethnomedicinal importance, novel technologies are explored for the production of secondary metabolites. In this present study, dried plant and cell cultures were investigated for presence of phytochemicals of therapeutic significance by GC-MS analysis. The results revealed the presence of 57 different phytochemicals. Of these, only six compounds were similar in both dried plant and cell culture. The major compound was stigmasterol and desulphosinigrin in dried plant and cell culture respectively. However dried plant showed the presence of more number of phytochemicals of therapeutic significance than the cell culture.
