For instance, meristematic cells give rise to secondary metabolites
as part of the plant's survival strategy under stress conditions imposed by living microorganisms (biotic stress) or the physical environment (abiotic stress).
In such cases, further insight into the biosynthetic origin, including potential microbial symbionts and, the specific genes involved in the biosynthesis of these secondary metabolites
may provide options for supplying sufficient amounts of marine compounds for clinical testing and commercialization (Sipkema et al.
The content of secondary metabolites
including active compounds are also dependent on harvesting time, temperature, post-harvest storage, drying, extraction and processing of the final product (Jahangir et al.
Plant secondary metabolites
play a very important role in its defense mechanism.
We measured one hydroxylated monoester and three oxidized secondary metabolites
of DEHP and DiNP, respectively.
albida confirms that AM symbiosis enhances the production of secondary metabolites
in medicinal plants.
A special feature of higher plants is their capacity to produce a large number of secondary metabolites
(Castello et al.
have lower decision concentrations but are likely to detect other related disorders.
Several attempts were made in order to obtain a high yield of secondary metabolites
by applying exogenous phytohormonon.
In spite of the extensive reports about the presence of endophytes in these commercial crops, very little is known about the secondary metabolites
produced by them.
The preliminary tests for the detection of secondary metabolites
were carried out for all the extracts of Trichosanthes cucumerina L.
They are secondary metabolites
that have been correlated with seedling inhibition and crude extracts from fungal cultures have been shown to produce blight-like symptoms on chickpeas (1, 3).
