Recent Advancements on Callus and Cell Suspension Cultures: An Effectual Reserve for the Production of Pharmaceutically Significant Metabolites

Alkaloids, glycosides, flavonoids, volatile oils, tannins, resins, and other phytopharmaceuticals are examples of secondary metabolites of pharmaceutical significance. Because their chemical synthesis is either extremely difficult or economically impractical, the majority of these secondary metabolites are currently isolated from wild or cultivated plants. Although production by callus and cell suspension cultures is a lovely alternative, it has only had limited commercial success because to a lack of understanding of how these metabolites are formed. The current book chapter summarises some of the current progress and investigations carried out by authors for the production of useful bioactive secondary metabolites such as withanolides, bacosides, glychyrhizin, reserpine, ajmalicine, amarogentin, plumbagin, and terpenoids from callus and cell suspension cultures of corresponding plant species. Similarly, a lot of thought has gone into it.
