The C17- polyacetylene, falcarinol is one of the most important bioactive compounds known for its roles as an anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal, anti-platelet-aggregatory and anti-tumor. The current study explored the potential of using In vitro culture techniques to produce falcarinol in calli of some Daucus genotypes growing in Syria. The current work adopted a protocol for growing seeds from wild and cultivated carrots, and producing calli in vitro. Results show, for the first time in literature, the possibility of qualitative and quantitative detection of falcarinol in calli from wild and cultivated carrots stored at -30 C° using LC-MS/MS and HPLC.
