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 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)
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)
While edge effects on tree water relations are well described for closed forests, they remain under-examined in more open forest types. Similarly, there has been minimal evaluation of the effects of contrasting land uses on the water relations of open forest types in highly fragmented landscapes. We examined edge effects on the water relations and gas(More)
The effect of furostanol glycosides of 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)
In experiments on 33 albino male rats it was established that during allyl alcohol-induced damage of the liver its excretory function is impaired that was judged by the biliary excretion of intravenously injected Bengal pink-131I. Antioxidants (tocopherol acetate, sodium selenite, unithiol) reduced the toxic effect of allyl alcohol on the liver.
