Abstract
Hypericum perforatum commonly known as St. Johns wort is a medicinally important plant native to Europe and North America. Hypericum sinaicum is growing in a small area in Sant Katrina in Egypt and listed as endangered and rare plant. The important of Hypericum plants as a medicinal plant is mainly due to the presence of hypericin and hyperforin compounds which use as a natural treatment for mild to moderate depression. Promising protocol for callus production from different explants from these plants was established. Whereas, MS medium fortified with 2.25 μM of 2,4-D and 0.55 μM of Kin gave the best results. The descending order of callus formation frequencies 95.13, 85.18, 79.31, 71.25, 65.12, 50.4 was recorded with root, leaf and stem explants of H. perforatum and H. sinaicum, respectively. The highest accumulation rates of hypericin and hyperforin (μg/g dw) were recorded with H. perforatum followed by H. sinaicum using TLC and HPLC techniques.
Biography
Hussein S Taha has received his PhD in Cairo/ Egypt University during the period of 1999. Currently, he is working as Prof., in National Research Centre. He has successfully completed his Administrative responsibilities as. Consultant of Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology in the Patent Office, Academic of Scientific Research and Technology (May, 2002 to May, 2007).
