Abstract

The previously known decrease of vindoline and catharanthine amounts in Catharanthus roseus leaves, when proceeding down a shoot, was found to be accompanied by a corresponding opposite increase in a dimer content. Behaviour of the dimer during extraction and HPLC procedures, and its molecular mass corresponded to its identification as 3′,4′-anhydrovinblastine. When the effects of two types of wounding stresses on the dimerization process were evaluated, the vindoline content appeared to be transiently increased.
