Abstract
Suspension cultures of Rosa cv. Paul's scarlet were used as a model system to examine the metabolism of 1,3-dinitrobenzene (DNB), an industrial waste compound. In a three-day period, 90% of the DNB supplied (96 nmoles) was metabolized by approximately 12 grams (fresh weight) of cells. The primary end product of DNB metabolism partitioned into the insoluble residue fraction of the extracted cells. The study demonstrates the usefulness of plant tissue cultures in evaluating the chemical influence of plants on xenobiotics.
