  1. Harvesting specific plant metabolites from hairy root cultures using magnetized n

    SBC: NAPROGENIX, INC.            Topic: NCCIH

    DESCRIPTION: Plants produce a wide variety of valuable bioactive metabolites, but these are commonly present in low concentrations in the wild-type plant. This makes the separation and purification of these compounds complicated and expensive. The applicant company, Naprogenix Inc, has developed a technology for increasing the yields of specific bioactive metabolites in mutant plant cell cultures ...
