Quax Copyright © 2007 WILEY-VCH Verlag GmbH & Co. KGaA, Weinheim ISBN 978-3-527-31443-0 3 1 The Engineering of Medicinal Plants: Prospects and Limitations of Medicinal Plant Biotechnology Matthys K. Julsing, Wim J. 1 Introduction The use of medicinal plants is increasing worldwide. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), approximately 80% of the world’s population currently uses herbal medicines directly as teas, decocts or extracts with easily accessible liquids such as water, milk, or alcohol .
2006). 17 18 2 Metabolomics NMR results obtained using correct sample preparation allow a direct comparison of all compounds present. The data obtained also have all the desired characteristics needed for inclusion into a public database on metabolomic data. 3 Identification of Metabolites One problem in metabolomic studies of new organisms is the identification of all metabolites. Many can easily be recognized by comparison with databases of wellknown primary metabolites occurring in most living cells.
Consequently, in a single plant approximately 30 000 low molecular-weight compounds should be present. To date, the best-studied plant is most likely tobacco, the number of identified compounds in tobacco leaves numbering approximately 3000. Within an organism, the metabolites represent a broad range of polarities and quantities, with some being highly labile. Hence, the aim of analyzing all of these compounds both qualitatively and quantitatively in a single operation is unrealistic, and cannot be achieved by any single analytical method, as each method has specific limitations.
