However, ginsenosides, the principal components of ginseng, are characterized by poor accessibility to the brain, and this pharmacokinetic-pharmacological paradox remains poorly explained.

Hydrogen gas (H2) was recently suggested to perform multiple roles during plant response to abiotic stresses. However, physiological mechanisms and downstream targets remain elusive. Here, we showed that osmotic stress triggered by polyethylene glycol (PEG) could enhance hydrogenase-like activity and H2 production in alfalfa seedlings. After the(More)
