Three flavonoid glycosides: luteolin 7-glucoside and two luteolin 7-diglucosides were isolated from dandelion flowers and leaves together with free luteolin and chrysoeriol in the flower tissue. The hydroxycinnamic acids, chicoric acid, monocaffeyltartaric acid and chlorogenic acid were found throughout the plant and the coumarins, cichoriin and aesculin(More)
Fruits, leaves and bark forming part of the diet of chimpanzees were collected and it was noted whether samples were of a kind being eaten or not eaten. Samples were dried and analysed for condensed tannin content and for three sugars, glucose, sucrose and fructose. It was found that chimpanzees did not select foods according to the level of tannins but did(More)
In a chemotaxonomic survey of 57 Pelargonium species, leaf exudate flavonoids were detected in 35% of the sample, mostly in trace amounts. However, chrysin and a related C-methylflavanone were identified as major leaf surface constituents of P. crispum, and a mixture of quercetin and kaempferol mono-, and di- and trimethyl ethers of P. quercifolium. In two(More)
Several kinds of outgrowth from the grass ovule are known. Attention is focused here on one outgrowth that occurs within or around the micropyle and is of nucellar origin. Grass species in which it is currently known to occur are listed and examples of variants briefly described. Attention is concentrated upon Pennisetum, where the cell structure is(More)
A new lipophilic flavonol, 6-hydroxykaempferol 3,7,4'-trimethyl ether, called tanetin, has been characterized in the leaf, flower and seed of feverfew, Tanacetum parthenium. It co-occurs with the known 6-hydroxykaempferol 3,7-dimethyl ether, quercetagetin 3,7-dimethyl ether and quercetagetin 3,7,3'-trimethyl ether. Pharmacological tests indicate that(More)
Leaf surface extracts of Biebersteinia orphanidis have yielded a complex mixture of five flavones with the unusual 5,7-dihydroxy-6,8-dimethoxy A ring substitution pattern. They are acerosin, hymenoxin, nevadensin, sudachitin and 5,7,4'-trihydroxy-6,8-dimethoxyflavone. Also present at the leaf surface are gardenin B, luteolin, apigenin, acacetin and the(More)
Introduction: A wide variety of midto highlatitude surface features on Mars has long been attributed to viscous creep and flow phenomena associated with near-surface ground ice. On the basis of Viking Orbiter images, Squyres [1] identified two classes of creep-related landforms: (1) softened terrain, which results from in situ viscous deformation and is(More)
As part of a transcriptional mapping project on human chromosome 16p12, a genomic contig was constructed that spanned the alternatively spliced human protein kinase C beta gene (PRKCB). PRKCB was determined to consist of 18 exons covering approximately 375 kb, with a particularly large intron of over 150 kb between exons 2 and 3. PRKCB is nearly 19 times(More)
The development of the south polar Chasma Australe re-entrant has been discussed for several years and a variety of theories including eolian, aquatic, subglacial and tectonic mechanisms have been proposed for its formation. Morphological observations and studies of recent imagery support the idea of successive headward erosion and removal of volatile–rich(More)
