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)
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)
The present paper reports that in vitro plant objects (test tube plants and cell cultures), when subjected to furostanol glycosides (FG), underwent nonspecific reactions related to antioxidant status—decrease in peroxidation of lipids (POL) and increase in guaiacol-dependent peroxidase activity. The level of superoxide increased as early as after 5 min from(More)
Declines in the global extent and condition of tropical forests have reduced carbon storage potential and caused biodiversity loss. However, the magnitude of these problems within individual countries may depend on the extent of the reserved forest estate, and the particular rules put in place to manage resource use in these areas. To test this hypothesis,(More)
After 27 years of storage in liquid nitrogen, we managed to restore the growth of suspension cell culture of alfalfa (Medicago sativa L.). The influence of factors affecting viability of alfalfa cells in vitro was investigated together with cytogenetic and physiological characteristics after their storage at the temperature of liquid nitrogen (−196°C). As a(More)
