Ergastic substances are non- protoplasmic materials found in cells. The living protoplasm of a cell is sometimes called the bioplasm and distinct from the ergastic substances of the cell. The latter are usually organic or inorganic substances that are products of metabolism, and include crystals, oil drops, gums, tannins , resins and other compounds that can aid the organism in defense, maintenance of cellular structure, or just substance storage.

Ergastic substances may appear in the protoplasm , in vacuoles , or in the cell wall. Reserve carbohydrate of plants are the derivatives of the end products of photosynthesis. Cellulose and starch are the main ergastic substances of plant cells. Cellulose is the chief component of the cell wall, and starch occurs as a reserve material in the protoplasm. Starch, as starch grains , arise almost exclusively in plastids , especially leucoplasts and amyloplasts. Although proteins are the main component of living protoplasm, proteins can occur as inactive, ergastic bodies—in an amorphous or crystalline or crystalloid form.

A well-known amorphous ergastic protein is gluten. Fats lipids and oils are widely distributed in plant tissues. Substances related to fats— waxes , suberin , and cutin —occur as protective layers in or on the cell wall.

Animals eliminate excess inorganic materials; plants mostly deposit such material in their tissues. Such mineral matter is mostly salts of calcium and anhydrides of silica.

Ergastic substance

Phytochemical constituents are distributed in various parts of plants and their localization is indicative of their therapeutic properties. Ergastic crystals such as calcium oxalate crystals are also found in almost all plant parts, which is an anti—nutrient as the dietary oxalates contributes to human ailments. Several of the medicinally useful plants contain these crystals and consumption of such plant materials in raw form can cause health problems in humans. Ergastic crystals can be an important diagnostic tool for the identification of raw drug as in Costus pictus a medicinal spiral ginger commonly called Insulin plant is devoid of cuboidal crystal but its related Costus speciosus leaves possess characteristic cuboidal shaped crystal in its leaf mesophyll. Gene manipulation technology may be promising in removing such deleterious genes or introduction of altered bio-chemicals to nullify such effects for the future generation. Herbal Medicine. Plants are the storehouses of multifunctional components with nourishing, healing, refreshing, curing and replenishing qualities.

Nature of Ergastic Substances in Some Fabaceae Seeds

Ergastic substances are non- protoplasm materials that one can find in cells. These are usually products of metabolism. Ergastic substances include crystals , oil drops, gums , tannins , resins and other compounds. Some of these substances help the organism function, keep up cell structure, or are just stored food material such as oil or fat. During the life of a cell, they can appear and disappear. Ergastic substances may appear in the protoplasm , in vacuoles , or in the cell wall.
