Table 1 Comparison of optimum total alkaloids and biomass production of D. nobile in different culture systems

From: Improving large-scale biomass and total alkaloid production of Dendrobium nobile Lindl. using a temporary immersion bioreactor system and MeJA elicitation

Culture system Total alkaloid content
(mg/g DW)
Fresh weight (g/L) Dry weight (g/L) Total culture time (d)
SSS 1.58 ± 0.03d 185.02 ± 6.75d 21.80 ± 0.68c 80
TIBS 3.20 ± 0.05c 349.23 ± 11.63a 54.48 ± 3.69a 80
TIBS-MeJA 7.41 ± 0.17a 283.68 ± 6.76c 42.73 ± 0.85b 70
6.53 ± 0.26b 313.22 ± 10.57b 55.32 ± 1.65a 80
  1. TIBS-MeJA means seedlings are cultured with MeJA using TIBS
  2. The total culture time was the sum of tissue culture time and MeJA elicitation culture time
  3. Values in each column followed by different letters are significantly different at p ≤ 0.05 as of Post Hoc Multiple Comparisons Test
