Project: ANTHOcyanin production PLatform Using Suspension cultures

This innovative project will produce purified anthocyanins, of varying complexity in side chain decoration, or labelled with stable isotopes as fine chemicals for assaying the composition of feedstocks for natural colours and for bioavailability, bioefficacy and mechanistic research in experimental medicine and as standards for assaying natural colorant extracts for improved formulations. The production of these new compounds from plants will span the whole of the value-chain from synthesis in novel suspension cultures, scale-up, preparative purification, assessment of bioactivities to distribution for sales.
