Abstract

Plants produce complex small molecules - natural products - that exhibit anticancer, antimalarial and antimicrobial activity. These molecules play a key role in human medicine. However, plants typically produce these compounds in low quantities, and harvesting plant natural products is frequently expensive, time-consuming and environmentally damaging. Plant cell culture provides a renewable, easily scalable source of plant material. In this chapter we discuss the successes and pitfalls associated with natural product production in plant cell cultures.
