Defective in Cuticular Ridges (DCR) of Arabidopsis thaliana, a Gene Associated with Surface Cutin Formation, Encodes a Soluble Diacylglycerol Acyltransferase*
Data suggest that a broad specific DAG acyltransferase may be involved in the cutin as well as in the TAG biosynthesis by supplying hydroxy fatty acid.
A promising anticancer and antimalarial component from the leaves of Bidens pilosa.
Bioactivity-guided fractionation of different extracts of B. pilosa leaf showed potential in vitro anticancer and antimalarial activity and led to the identification of a potential marker compound, phenyl-1,3,5-heptatriyne.
Recent advances in plant hepatoprotectives: A chemical and biological profile of some important leads
This review focuses discussion on the chemistry, biological activity, mode of action, toxicity, and future prospects of several leads from plant sources found as potential hepatoprotective agents with diverse chemical structures.
Antitubercular potential of plants: A brief account of some important molecules
This review gives concise up‐to‐date information regarding the chemistry and pharmacology of plant‐based leads and some insight into their structure–activity relationship.

Agrobacterium rhizogenes-mediated transformation of Picrorhiza kurroa Royle ex Benth.: establishment and selection of superior hairy root clone
The present communication reports the first successful establishment, maintenance, growth and selection of superior hairy root clone of Picrorhiza kurroa with desired phyto-molecule production potential, which can serve as an effective substitute to its roots and thereby prevent the indiscriminate up-rooting and exploitation of this commercially important, endangered medicinal plant species.
