Abstract

Cell-free extracts from callus of Jasminum officinale contained epoxidase activities with isopentyl pyrophosphate, isopentenol, geraniol and nerol as substrates and also hydratase activities towards the resulting terpene oxides. The activities were up to 100-fold greater than those extractable from foliage of the plant.
