Acetate and malonate, basic precursors in the biosynthesis of polyketides, were added to suspension cultures of Rhamnus purshiana DC. It was found that the production of anthra-derivatives (i.e. 1,8-dihydroxyanthraquinones, anthrones and-or dianthrones) in these cultures was significantly stimulated by malonate, while addition of acetate had an inhibitory effect under similar conditions.
