Polysaccharides were extracted from wheat suspension culture and cultivated cells. Gaz-liquid chromatography of wheat suspension culture allowed identifying the composition of polysaccharides that were found to contain arabinose, xylose, galactose, glucose, and a little amount of mannose and rhamnose. In dried cultivated cells the polysaccharide structure consisted mainly from arabinose, xylose, and galactose. It was found that the percentage of the amount of monosaccharides was positively correlated with the concentration of 2,4-D at the suspension media.
