Abstract

The effect of ultraviolet (UV-B) radiation on the accumulation and tissue localization of phenolic compounds in two strains of callus cultures of tea plant (Camellia sinensisL.) were investigated. The strains differed in their morphological and physiological characteristics and biosynthetic capacity. UV-B radiation hampered culture growth, decreased the size of callus-forming cells and promoted the accumulation of soluble and, to a lesser extent, polymeric forms of phenolic compounds, such as lignin. This accumulation was accompanied by an increase in the phenolic compound deposition in cell walls and intercellular space and by deposition of a lignin-like material on the surface of callus cultures. The strain characterized by an increased formation of phenolic compounds was more resistant to UV-B radiation as compared to that with lower phenolic productivity.
