Addition of 5 mg abscisic acid l-1 after 12 days' growth of Taxus chinensis suspension culture gave the greatest paclitaxel accumulation at 11 mg l-1, which was almost 5 times that of the control culture. The highest paclitaxel production, 18 mg l-1, was obtained using 5 mg abscisic acid l-1 and 20 mg methyl jasmonate l-1.
