Biochemical Composition of Roots of Withania somnifera (L.) Dunal
Punit Kumar Khanna , Arun Kumar , Ashok Ahuja and Mahraj Krishen Kaul

Abstract:
Contents of soluble protein, total amino acids, reducing sugars, non-reducing sugars, starch were examined in fresh roots of five selective accessions viz. AGB-002, AGB-009, AGB-015, AGB-025 and AGB-030 of Withania somnifera (L.) Dunal while crude fiber was analyzed in dry roots during young and maturity stages. All the five accessions followed a uniform pattern of maximum biochemical constituent accumulation during maturity. The accession AGB-002 appears to be more efficient in accumulation and synthesis of biochemical constituents during the two stages of root growth.
