Plant Root System
Plant based process for producing antioxidant compounds.
This technology is a sustainable, plant based process having reproducible results, unlike results occurring in nature, it produces high value combinations of compounds.
Project Summary Arkansas State University (ASU) is seeking to commercialize a patented process for producing a diverse range of novel antioxidant compounds from plant hairy root cultures. This technology is differentiated in that it is a sustainable, plant based process having reproducible results, unlike results occurring in nature, while mimicking natural processes in that it produces high value combinations of compounds not replicable by current industrial means. Resveratrol is well-known as a powerful antioxidant manifesting various health benefits. The ASU technology reliably produces a novel set of Resveratrol analogues, which includes Arachidin-1, Arachidin-3. Data from standard in vitro tests show that Arachidin-1 and Arachidin-3, as well as the bulk extract generated, have significantly higher bioavailability, antioxidant activity, and, thus, the potential for greater health benefits compared to other Resveratrol products currently on the market.
