Abstract

A novel endophytic actinomycete strain, designated KM-1-2T, was isolated from seeds of Ginkgo biloba at Yangling, China. A polyphasic approach was used to study the taxonomy of strain KM-1-2T and it was found to show a range of phylogenetic and chemotaxonomic properties consistent with those of...

Abstract

Plant cell walls primarily comprise lignin, which performs functions of mechanical support, water transport, and stress responses. Lignin biosynthesis pathway proceeds through metabolic grid featuring complexity and diversity in enzymatic reaction. Cinnamate-4-hydroxylase (C4H, EC 1.14.13.11) is...

Abstract

Purpose: Technetium-99 m is a radioactive tracer that emits gamma rays. Its half-life time is 6 h. Similar to other ionizing radiations, the main mechanism of radiation-induced effects is initiated through the production of reactive oxygen species (ROS). This study was designed to determine the...

Abstract

The R2R3-MYB gene family is the largest MYB subfamily in plants and is involved in the regulation of plant secondary metabolism and specific morphogenesis, as well as the response to biotic and abiotic stress. However, a systematic identification and characterization of this gene family has not...

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

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

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...
