Peels and fresh pomegranate extracts were used in the present study for the determination of the physic-chemical properties and DPPH-ABTS scavenging activities. Total sugars of juice are fructose (ca. 7 g/100 ml) and glucose (ca. 8 g/100 ml). Contents of soluble proteins in juice extracts are about 7 g/l (Bradford assays) and 22% (Kjeldhal assays) from dry(More)
Pomegranate seed oil is considered a powerful health-benefiting agent due to its anti-oxidative and anticarcinogenic properties. Lipids from 21 pomegranate cultivars (15 Tunisian and 6 Chinese) were extracted and fatty acids were identified. Total lipids (16% on a dry weight basis) are mainly unsaturated (ca. 88%). Qualitatively, the pomegranate fatty acid(More)
Drought is one of the most serious abiotic stresses limiting plant growth and crop productivity worldwide. The long arm of the barley chromosome 4H is often implicated in adaptation to drought. Therefore, the aim of the present study was to explore the polymorphism of microsatellite markers localized mostly on chromosome 4H in eight barley varieties(More)
The species Trigonella foenum-graecum, wild or cultivated, is widely distributed throughout the world. This work aims to analyse the structure of thirty eight T. foenum-graecum cultivars selected from different Tunisian bioclimatic stages using physiological parameters. Cultivars were collected from upper-semi arid, sub humid and lower arid Tunisian(More)
In the present study, free amino acids and seed protein contents of pomegranate germplasm from Tunisia and China were conducted using Hitachi L8800 amino acid analyzer, Bradford and Kjeldahl methods. The work offers more consideration to protein pomegranate seeds which can be with great importance regarding the nutritive seed value of this crop. In other(More)
