In Vitro Mutation Induction of Saintpaulia Using Ethyl Methanesulfonate
This study has been performed to investigate the efficiency of the chemical mutagen ethyl methanesulphonate (EMS) to induce mutations in Saintpaulia. In vitro leaf sections of Saintpaulia cv.Expand
Potential antioxidant properties and hepatoprotective effects of an aqueous extract formula derived from three Chinese medicinal herbs against CCl(4)-induced liver injury in rats.
The hepatoprotective effects of an aqueous extract formula (AEF) derived from Artemisia capillaris, Lonicera japonica and Silybum marianum (ratio 1:1:1) were evaluated by its antioxidant propertiesExpand
Molecular identification and antibiotic control of endophytic bacterial contaminants from micropropagated Aglaonema cultures
Endophytic bacterial contamination is a major constraint to the establishment and maintenance of aseptic Aglaonema cultures. The objectives of the present study included the identification ofExpand
Development of an efficient micropropagation procedure for Aglaonema ‘Lady Valentine’ through adventitious shoot induction and proliferation
An efficient micropropagation procedure via adventitious shoot proliferation was developed for Aglaonema using the popular red cultivar ‘Lady Valentine.’ Aseptic culture was initiated by culturingExpand
Cryopreservation of cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.) somatic embryos for long-term germplasm storage
Cryopreservation using encapsulation-dehydration was developed for the long-term conservation of cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.) germplasm. Survival of individually encapsulated somatic embryos afterExpand
Headspace volatile markers for sensitivity of cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.) somatic embryos to cryopreservation
The mechanisms that reduce the viability of plant somatic embryos following cryopreservation are not known. The objective of the present study was to evaluate the sensitivity of cocoa (TheobromaExpand
Anti-inflammatory activity of Lactobacillus-fermented adlay-soymilk in LPS-induced macrophages through suppression of NF-κB pathways
Abstract This study evaluated the anti-inflammatory activities of adlay-soymilk fermented with Lactobacillus plantarum in a lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-stimulated macrophage model. Both theExpand
Influence of freezable/non-freezable water and sucrose on the viability of Theobroma cacao somatic embryos following desiccation and freezing
Encapsulated cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.) somatic embryos subjected to 0.08–1.25 M sucrose treatments were analyzed for embryo soluble sugar content, non-freezable water content, moisture level afterExpand
Cardiovascular and intestinal protection of cereal pastes fermented with lactic acid bacteria in hyperlipidemic hamsters
Abstract This study was to investigate the potential symbiotic effects of fermented cereal pastes on lipid metabolism, antioxidant status and intestinal microflora were examined in hyperlipidemicExpand
Importance of structural integrity of somatic embryos for long-term cryopreservation of cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.) germplasm
Cryopreservation is a reliable means for the long-term conservation of plant genetic resources. It is of particular interest for cocoa (Theobroma cacao L.) whose seeds are recalcitrant toExpand
