The L. vera MM cell culture we obtained synthesized RA, which is well known to be one of the best natural antioxidants (Loliger, 1983). RA also has an antimicrobial, antiviral and antiinflammatory effect (Parnham and Kesselring, 1985; Ilieva et al., 1994; Lopez-Arnaldos et al, 1997), which makes it a valuable product with potential for commercial applications. That gave us grounds to conduct a thorough investigation on the cell culture in order to determine its capacity for biosynthesis of RA. The results are definitely of technological significance and are a good basis for the scale-up of the process of biosynthesis of RA from plant cell suspension L. vera MM.
