Abstract

Background: Previously, we demonstrated that pollen chamber formation (PCF) in G. biloba ovules was a process of programmed cell death (PCD) within the nucellar cells at the micropylar end. However, the signal triggering the cascades of the programmed events in these nucellar cells remains...

Abstract

Ginkgolides are terpene trilactones in Ginkgo biloba, a popular medicinal herb for memory disorders. Although ginkgolides are known for various neurobiological effects, their macromolecular target in brain is unknown. In this work, we employed benzophenone derivatives of ginkgolides to identify...

Abstract

Ginkgo leaves were selected as experimental materials to investigate the cellulase Umcel9y-1 synergized action on total flavonoids extraction. Under the optimum reaction conditions (pH 7.0, 37°C), the extraction yields of total flavonoids increased by 20.3%, 20.7%, 16.8% and 15% of the...

Abstract

Using 2-year-old cutting seedlings Ginkgo biloba L.cv.' DaFozhi' (male and female), simulating the natural drought by means of greenhouse pot culture the growth and endogenous hormone contents of male and female Ginkgo biloba under drought stress were studied. The results showed that: (1) At the...

Abstract

Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) analysis in the negative ion mode is adversely affected by ionization suppression caused by electrical discharge and the presence of salts. Paper spray mass spectrometry (PS-MS) also suffers from the above phenomenon, being built on principles...

Abstract

PREMISE OF THE STUDY: The hydraulics of xylem has been widely studied in numerous species and organ types. However, comparatively little is known about how phloem and xylem are hydraulically coupled or about many of the basic structural properties of phloem (such as conducting cell numbers and...

Abstract

Some of the plant species including embryophytes (especially, bryophytes and ferns) utilize the sperms but not pollens for their sexual reproduction. Because sperm motility is one of the most important features for the fertility in human and animals, percentage of motility and the kinetic...
