Constituents of the essential oils of four micropropagated Solidago species
In vitro shoot culture of four Solidago species, S.virgaurea L., S.canadensis L., S.gigantea Ait. and S.graminifolia (L.) Salisb. were established from aseptically germinated seedlings. ProliferatedExpand
Antibiofilm activity of selected plant essential oils and their major components.
The killing rate studies of S. aureus biofilm treated with TTO, LEO, MEO and some of their constituents revealed that partial destruction of 24-h-old biofilms was achieved by the concentration 4-8 x MIC after 1 h, whereas 2-4 x MIC was enough to obtain 90% reduction in biomass metabolic activity after just 4 h of treatment.
