Callus was induced from the fruit galls of Actinidia polygama and the regenerated plants from the callus tissue were cultured. The formation of triterpenoids in the callus was confirmed. Eight triterpenoids containing two new ones were isolated from the callus. The triterpenoid composition found in the callus tissue was compared with those in the regenerated and natural plants. The differences in the metabolic ability of the callus tissue and regenerated plants are also discussed.
