Catharanthus roseus as a model system for the study of the phytoremediation of TNT
C. roseus hairy roots cultures were employed to prove the ability of plants to take up and transform TNT in the absence of microbes. Mass balances performed with 14C-TNT showed that the TNT was being taken up and transformed ...
Establishment, cultivation and optimization of hairy roots of Catharanthus roseus for the synthesis of indole alkaloids
"Hairy" roots hold the potential for economically feasible biotechnological routes to the controlled biosynthesis of complex, plant-derived, 'natural' molecules. A novel transgenic root system of the tropical plant ...
