Abstract

Cell-free extracts from callus of <i>Jasminum officinale</i> 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.
