Abstract

Renealmia alpinia (matandrea or achira de monte) it`s an important plant for their neutralizing ability

of both effects oedema-forming, hemorrhagic and clotting of the venom of the snake Bothrops asper

(mapaná equis). It is a potential alternative of primary attention in ofidic accidents, or like a source of

molecules with pharmaceutical importance. Despite this, there is not previous studies on this specie

guided to micropropagation, tissular dedifferentiation or in vitro metabolites production. In this

work was evaluated some variables as the height, the number of shoots and roots in the propagation

of R. alpinia under in vitro conditions, as well as the rate of speed multiplication and the induction of

having undiferentiated tissue in foliar explants. Addition of 6-Bencylaminopurine (3 mg/L) promotes

the propagation in vitro, with a rate of speed multiplication (TVM) of 1.39 shoots/week, while the

induction of having undiferentiated tissue in foliar explants was favored by both 2,4-D (2 mg/L) and

BA (1mg/L)in combination. Additionally, was detected in foliar tissues (of grown plants in vitro and

in vitro) cumarins, its metabolites has been found in some plants with well-known antiofídic activity,

this results open possibilities of studies in order to the production and in vitro activity evaluation of

metabolites with potential antiofidic activity or pharmaceutical interest.
