A new route to the synthesis of a number of attractants of Lepidoptera(Argyrotaenia velutinana, Mamestra configurata, andLycorea ceres ceres) have been developed. These substances are acetates of enols with the cis configuration: tetradec-11-en-1-ol, hexadec-11-en-1-ol, and octadec-11-en-1-ol, respectively. The constants of the substances obtained agree(More)
The effect of furostanol glycosides of a cell culture of Dioscorea deltoidea Wall on oxidative processes in tomato plants subjected to invasion with the gall nematode Meloidogyne incognita Kofoid et White was studied. We showed that furostanol glycosides induce a nonspecific defensive response in plants. Exposure of cell membranes to furostanol glycosides(More)
Effects of high irradiance and moderate heat on photosynthesis of the tree-fern Dicksonia antarctica (Labill., Dicksoniaceae) were examined in a climate chamber under two contrasting irradiance regimes (900 and 170mmol photonsm s) and three sequential temperature treatments (15 C; 35 C; back to 15 C). High irradiance led to decline in predawn quantum yield(More)
The data on the in vitro and in vivo (into embryonic disk) retroviral-mediated transfer of genetic information into chicken embryonic cells are presented. The estimated transformation frequency of the cultured target cells constituted 8 × 10−4 to 5 × 10−3. A transgenic rooster, carrying recombinant DNA in blood, heart, liver, and intestine cells, was(More)
The paper deals with studies of the intestinal microflora in 114 patients with acne vulgaris (94 and 20 with its papulopustular and nodulocystic forms). Sixty-one (54%) patients have either the first (21%) or second (78.7%) impaired bacterial microflora. At the same time, there are no great differences in the content of the intestinal microflora in(More)
Biological activity of the extract from golden root (Rhodiola rosea L.) roots, containing the complex of phenylpropanoids (CPP), was studied on the cell culture of yam (Dioscorea deltoidea Wall) under normal conditions and abiotic stress. The high radical-binding capacity of CPP relative to anion- and hydroxyl-radicals was observed. Having a high level of(More)
Low doses of furostanol glycosides (FG) were shown to elevate the activity of peroxidases (guaiacol-dependent and ascorbate peroxidases) and reduce peroxidation of lipids (POL) below the control level in the cell culture of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.). Under oxidative stress (OS) induced by paraquat, FG protected the cell culture from injury with(More)
To elucidate the biological activity of furastanol glycosides (FG) as elicitors and their possible action mechanisms, antiradical properties of these compounds and their influence on in vitro potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) plants under abiotic stresses were studied. FG stimulated adaptive responses related to the activation of guaiacol-dependent peroxidase(More)
The aboveground carbon (AGC) storage of open Eucalyptus forests is unknown yet they are estimated to account for almost 25% of all Australian forests and about 60% of forests in Victoria. In this study we provide the best possible estimates of total AGC including tree biomass derived from destructive biomass sampling across 23 study plots established in(More)
In order to identify factors governing the maintenance of intracellular redox homeostasis, we investigated the effect of phenylpropanoid complex (PPC) isolated from the root extract of Golden root (Rhodiola rosea L.) on the plants of potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) in vitro. It was found that plant treatment with 100 μM PPC brought about a 23% decrease in(More)
