I would like information within the next few days if possible about the
protocols for culturing Taxus cells to produce taxol. The information is
to be used for an undergraduate seminar on Production of Valuable
secondary Metabolites by Cell Culture. I've searched everywhere but
can't find specifics about the process. For example, if bioreactors are
used or if the process is developed to that extent yet. If this material
is secret I would still appreciate some general information about cell
isolation, tissue source, specific species cultured, etc..
Thank you in advance, f if you can be of assista.
Could you e-mail the info. rather than replying via this forum.
