Abstract

Conventional fluorescent lamps used in tissue culture are costly light sources showing excessive wavelength emission-bandwidth that must be replaced by alternative, less costly and much lower power-consuming energy sources. The use of Light-Emitting Diodes (LEDs) is the best option due to their potential role as elicitors of secondary metabolite production in many plant models. Gynura procumbens(G. procumbens) is widely used for treating various diseases. Here, leaf explants were cultivated in MS medium supplemented with 0.5 mg/L of NAA and 2.0 mg/L of BAP for 30 days under white, blue, and red LEDs. Secondary metabolites were analyzed by HPLC and LC-MS. Blue LEDs elicited the highest antioxidant activity, total flavonoid, and phenolic content. Furthermore, the content of cyanidin-monoglucosides increased significantly increased under blue light.
