- ... Leucojum aestivum (summer snowflake) is a plant species used for the extraction of galanthamine, an acetylcholinesterase inhibitor for the treatment of Alzheimer’s disease. Extracts from bulbs collected from 18 Bulgarian populations and from shoot-clumps obtained in vitro from 8 different populations showed variations in their alkaloid composition. Nineteen alkaloids were detected in the studied s ...

- ... The common effect of NH₄⁺, NO₃⁻, KH₂PO₄ and sucrose on the biosynthesis of galanthamine by a Leucojum aestivum shoot culture was studied. Polynominal regression models were elaborated for the description of the galanthamine biosynthesis as a consequence of variation of the investigated variables (NH₄⁺ between 0.20 and 0.54 g/L; NO₃⁻ between 1.44 and 3.44 g/L; KH₂PO₄ between 0.10 and 0.24 g/L, and ...
