Primary Metabolite Profiling of Tinospora cordifolia

Abhimanyu Sharma and Amla Batra

Plants are the sources of many bioactive compounds containing many primary metabolites like, carbohydrates (starch, sugar), proteins, phenols, ascorbic acid etc. are useful for flavoring, fragrances, insecticides, sweeteners and natural dyes (Kaufman). During the present research work, root, stem, leaf and calli of the plant were evaluated quantitatively for the analysis of chlorophyll, sugars, starch, protein, ascorbic acid and phenols. Keeping in view the importance of these primary metabolites the present studies for biochemical evaluation of primary metabolites from different parts of Tinospora cordifolia was undertaken.
