Determination of polyphenols in Mentha longifolia and M. piperita field-grown and in vitro plant samples using UPLC-TQ-MS.
Nine polyphenols in the aerial parts of Mentha longifolia have been separated by chromatographic techniques and show that under in vitro conditions, the metabolism of phenolics undergoes a fundamental change.
The effects of jasmonic acid and methyl jasmonate on rosmarinic acid production in Mentha × piperita cell suspension cultures
It was documented that suspension cultures of M. piperita treated with elicitors showed a decrease in biomass accumulation when compared to the control, and there was no substantial influence of elicitors on rosmarinic acid secretion into the culture media.
Dietary phytochemicals and human health.
This chapter is a comprehensive review of the health promotingphytochemicals commonly found in our daily food. These include carotenoids, phenolics, phytoestrogenes, polyunsaturated fatty acids,
Resistance vs. tolerance to Potato virus Y in tobacco—comparing effectiveness using virus isolates from Central Europe
Comparing major sources of PVY resistance/tolerance in inoculation tests using ten PVY isolates collected in Central Europe and differing with their virulence shows ‘VAM’ and ‘Wiślica’ appeared to be the most effective sources, as they showed no symptoms and gave negative DAS-ELISA tests for four out of ten tested PVY isolate.
A survey of Nicotiana germplasm for resistance to Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV)
The reaction to Tomato spotted wilt virus (TSWV) was evaluated in 94 accessions of Nicotiana, originating from the Institute of Soil Science and Plant Cultivation tobacco germplasm collection in Puławy, Poland and demonstrated the presence of SCAR markers linked to the resistance gene.
Strategies to Alleviate Salinity Stress in Plants
Soil salinization is a major threat to agriculture in arid and semiarid regions. Besides the identification and use of salt-adapted species or cultivars in saline areas, the use of treatments to
The Impact of Different Cultivation Systems on the Content of Selected Secondary Metabolites and Antioxidant Activity of Carlina acaulis Plant Material
This study showed that the antioxidant activity and the content of chlorogenic and 3,5-di-caffeoylquinic acid in roots of plants cultivated in hydroponics and field conditions were comparable, however, the amount of carlina oxide was significantly higher in plants from the field.
Cytology and fertility of amphidiploid hybrids between Nicotiana wuttkei Clarkson et Symon and N. tabacum L.
In this study, the morphology, cytology and crossability of amphidiploid hybrids (2n = 8x = 80; WWW′W′TTT′T′) between Nicotiana wuttkei × Nicotianatabacum were studied. An R1 progeny of the hybrids
Elimination of Hop latent viroid from hop plants by cold treatment and meristem tip culture.
The use of a very sensitive diagnostic method RT-PCR to confirm complete viroid elimination from infected plants resulted in obtaining a population of HLVd-free hop plants, which remained healthy also after dormancy period.
Inheritance of Potato virus Y tolerance introgressed from Nicotiana africana to cultivated tobacco
Potato virus Y (PVY) is an important pathogen of tobacco. Growing resistant cultivars is the best way to prevent significant losses of the crop caused by this virus. However, the protection given by
