The level of secondary compounds formed by sterile root cultures of Anigozanthos preissii depends on the differentiation state. Cultures showing shoot formation and accelerated growth are depleted in stilbenes, stilbene glucosides, and phenylphenalenones. Three glucosides of anigopreissin A, a benzofuran-type resveratrol dimer, were isolated from slow-growing cultures and their structures elucidated by spectrometric methods.
