A single copy gene, encoding a protein highly similar to transketolase from other systems, was identified in the Trypanosoma brucei genome. The gene was expressed in E. coli and the purified protein demonstrated transketolase activity with K(m) values of 0.2mM and 0.8mM respectively for xylulose 5-phosphate and ribose 5-phosphate. A peroxisomal targeting(More)
INTRODUCTION Alphitonia neocaledonica (Rhamnaceae) is an endemic tree of New Caledonia. Although three flavonoids have been identified in the leaves, the secondary metabolite profile of the fruits has never been investigated. OBJECTIVE Phytochemical investigation of A. neocaledonica fruits and evaluation of their anti-oxidant, anti-tyrosinase and(More)
Plant resistance to phytopathogenic microorganisms mainly relies on the activation of an innate immune response usually launched after recognition by the plant cells of microbe-associated molecular patterns. The plant hormones, salicylic acid (SA), jasmonic acid, and ethylene have emerged as key players in the signaling networks involved in plant immunity.(More)
Soyasaponins are phytochemicals of major interest for health. Their identification and quantification remain difficult owing to the large number of structural isomers in soybeans and the lack of stable standards. In this study, a rapid method using high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) using a UV detector (205 nm) was developed to identify and(More)
A novel actinomycete strain, Streptomyces anulatus S37, has been isolated from the rhizosphere of healthy Moroccan Vitis vinifera on the basis on its ability to promote grapevine growth and to induce natural defences against various phytopathogens. In the present work, the main bioactive metabolites produced by S. anulatus S37 were isolated. A crude n-BuOH(More)
Resveratrol and related oligostilbenes are defense molecules produced by grapevine in response to stresses including various elicitors or signal molecules. Together with their prominent role in planta, these compounds have been the center of much attention in recent decades due to their pharmacological properties. The cost-effective production of(More)
Wood residues produced from forestry activities represent an interesting source of biologically active, high value-added secondary metabolites. In this study, 30 extracts from 10 barks of deciduous and coniferous tree species were investigated for their potential dermo-cosmetic use. The extracts were obtained from Fagus sylvatica, Quercus robur, Alnus(More)
A new resveratrol dimer (1) called labruscol, has been purified by centrifugal partition chromatography of a crude ethyl acetate stilbene extract obtained from elicited grapevine cell suspensions of Vitis labrusca L. cultured in a 14-liter stirred bioreactor. One dimensional (1D) and two dimensional (2D) nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) analyses including(More)
