Plants species require macro and micro nutrients to complete the growth cycles such as photosynthesis, enzyme activities and secondary metabolite production. The objective of the present study was to investigate the effects of salinity on biomass as well as macro and micro nutrients uptake in the medicinal plant of Andrographis paniculata (AP). In this(More)
Nain-e Havandi (Andrographis paniculata Nees.) (AP) is an annual herbaceous plant belonging to the family Acanthacea. Only a few species of Andrographis genus out of 28 are medicinally concerned of which AP is the most important. Knowledge about the arrival of AP to Iran is extremely lacking but most probably it has been imported from India. However,(More)
Andrographis paniculata (AP) has been stated as a low-diverse, endangered and red-listed plant species. Self-pollinated mating system, being an introduced species and experiencing a bottleneck as well as over exploitation cause such a consequence. Inter and intra-specific hybridizations have been suggested as essential techniques for generating genetic(More)
Andrographis paniculata (AP) is a medicinal plant species introduced into Malaysia. To address the genetic structure and evolutionary connectedness of the Malaysian AP with the Indian AP, a DNA sequence analysis was conducted based on 24 microsatellite markers. Out of the 24 primer sets, seven novel microsatellite primers were designed and amplified(More)
Andrographis paniculata Nees. (AP) is a self-pollinated medicinal herb with a wide range of pharmaceutical properties, facing a low diversity in Malaysia. Cross-pollination of AP accessions leads to considerable rates of heterosis in the agro-morphological characteristics and anticancer phytochemicals of this eminent medicinal herb. However, the poor(More)
To develop in vitro callus induction of Phyllanthus pulcher and investigate secondary metabolite activities, methyl jasmonate (MeJA) and salicylic acid (SA) as two abiotic elicitors were evaluated. Growth and secondary metabolite production of callus from P. pulcher grown in Murashige and Skoog medium, supplemented with 1 mg L−1 2, 4-dinitrophenylhydrazine(More)
