Cell suspension cultures of Solanum laciniatum were able to transform exogenously inoculated salicyl alcohol into salicyl alcohol 7-O-β-D-glucopyranoside (isosalicin). The highest level of isosalicin (54.6 mg/g dry weight) in the cells was formed within 2 days after inoculation with salicyl alcohol (37.5 mg/flask containing 50 ml of medium). The biotransformation capacity of the cell suspension cultures was about 31.1%.
