Sample text

An alternative used to identify medicinal plants is DNA technology. DNA-based molecular marker techniques are useful for the identification of plants, which are morphologically and/or chemically indistinguishable. The advantage of DNA is its stability. DNA can be isolated from fresh, dried or processed material. In contrast to chemo-profiles, DNA markers are species-specific; yet they do not differ among tissues of the same species. 30 There are two general approaches for genome-based identification of medicinal plants.

Either small quantities of plant material (20–500 g dry weight)28 or larger amounts of 1 to 10 kg material29 are required, depending on the extraction and screening methods. 29 Tissue and cell culture techniques might be promising for natural product research, because for these methods only a little quantity of plants has to be collected and screened. Plant material such as seeds or leaves can be established in cell culture. 2. 30 In the 1990s, a mix-up between two plants in China led to a dramatic incident.

It has stimulant properties due to its isothiocyanates. Another plant of the Andes is the Asteraceae Smallanthus sonchifolius (Poepp. ) H. Rob. (also known as Yacón).
