London, Chapman and Hall, (OCoLC) Eric Yarnell, in Veterinary Herbal Medicine, Secondary metabolites clearly provide most of the therapeutic activity of medicinal plants and fungi (Yarnell, ).Concurrent evolution of animals, plants, and fungi helps explain why this is so. Animals that are able to make use of plant secondary metabolites would be better suited to survive and spread the genes that allow for the benefits. Secondary metabolites are found expressed in various combinations in different parts of the plant (leaves, roots, shoots, bark), at different stages of growth (seedling, seed, plantlet, mature tree), under different environmental pressures (invasive microbes, herbivores), in numerous combinations of ways by different classes of plants. Although it is hard to draw general conclusions about. in this book. Secondary metabolites also differ from primary metab - olites in having a restricted distribution within the plant kingdom. That is, certain secondary metabolites are only found in one plant species or related group of species, whereas primary metabolites are found throughout the plant kingdom.

Book: Secondary metabolism in microorganisms, plants and animals. pppp. Abstract: This volume describes the organization and significance of biosynthesis, storage, transformation and degradation of the main groups of secondary products in microorganisms, plants and by: Secondary metabolism (also called specialized metabolism) is a term for pathways and small molecule products of metabolism that are not absolutely required for the survival of the es of the products include antibiotics and distinguish non-secondary ("ordinary") metabolism, the term basic metabolism is sometimes used. Secondary metabolites are produced by many. In this article we will discuss about: 1. Meaning of Secondary Metabolites 2. Role of Secondary Metabolites 3. Plants produce thousands types of chemicals. Some of the organic compounds like carbohydrates, fats, proteins, nucleic acids, chlorophylls, hemes are required for their basic metabolic processes and found throughout the plant kingdom. The vast and versatile pharmacological effects of medicinal plants are basically dependent on their phytochemical constituents. Generally, the phytochemical constituents of plants fall into two categories based on their role in basic metabolic processes, namely primary and secondary metabolites. Primary plant metabolites are involved in basic life functions; therefore, they are more or less Cited by: 2.
