Gum arabic-chitosan complex coacervation.
The formation of electrostatic complexes of gum Arabic (GA) with chitosan (Ch), two oppositely charged polysaccharides, as a function of the biopolymers ratio (RGA/Ch), total biopolymersExpand
In vitro evaluation of germination and growth of five plant species on medium supplemented with hydrocarbons associated with contaminated soils.
The effect of a hydrocarbon mixture (HCM) of three polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH) and Maya crude oil on germination, growth and survival of four grasses (Bouteloua curtipendula, CenchrusExpand
Prosopis laevigata a potential chromium (VI) and cadmium (II) hyperaccumulator desert plant.
The bioaccumulation of Cr(VI) and Cd(II) in Prosopis laevigata and the effect of these heavy metals on plant growth were assessed. P. laevigata seeds were cultured during 50 days on modifiedExpand
Mesquite gum: fractionation and characterization of the gum exuded from Prosopis laevigata obtained from plant tissue culture and from wild trees
Abstract The effect of abiotic and biotic stresses in the in vitro gum production from Prosopis laevigata has been studied. The presence of autoclaved microbial biomass (MB) in combination with anExpand
Clonal propagation of mesquite tree (Prosopis laevigata Humb. & Bonpl. ex Willd. M.C. Johnston). I. Via cotyledonary nodes
Plantlet regeneration in Prosopis laevigata (Humb. & Bonpl. ex Willd.) Johnston (Fabaceae), a multipurpose tree, has been achieved from cotyledonary nodes excised from in vitro grown seedlings. TheExpand
Pre-selection of protective colloids for enhanced viability of Bifidobacterium bifidum following spray-drying and storage, and evaluation of aguamiel as thermoprotective prebiotic
Abstract The objective of this work was to demonstrate that Bifidobacterium bifidum viability to spray-drying and with storage time could be substantially enhanced by pre-selecting protectiveExpand
In vitro propagation of two antidiabetic species known as guarumbo: Cecropia obtusifolia and Cecropia peltata
Two Cecropia species (Cecropia obtusifolia and C. peltata), known as guarumbo, are employed in Mexican traditional medicine to treat diabetes mellitus; the leaves of both species contain phenolicExpand
Production of dihydroxylated betalains and dopamine in cell suspension cultures of Celosia argentea var. plumosa.
Betalains are plant pigments of hydrophilic nature with demonstrated chemopreventive potential in cancer cell lines and animal models. Among the betalains, those containing an aromatic moiety withExpand
Phenylpropanoid production in callus and cell suspension cultures of Buddleja cordata Kunth
Plant tissue cultures represent a potential source for producing secondary metabolites. In this work, Buddleja cordata tissue cultures were established in order to produce phenylpropanoidsExpand
Production of chlorogenic acid and isoorientin hypoglycemic compounds in Cecropia obtusifolia calli and in cell suspension cultures with nitrate deficiency
The antidiabetic properties of Cecropia obtusifolia are attributed to chlorogenic acid (CGA) and isoorientin (ISO) phenolic compounds; both compounds possess hypoglycemic, hypolipidemic, andExpand
