To investigate the effect of light intensity and temperature on the biosynthesis and accumulation of quality-related metabolites, field grown tea plants were shaded by Black Net and Nano-insulating Film (with additional 2-4°C cooling effect) with un-shaded plants as a control. Young shoots were subjected to UPLC-Q-TOF MS followed by multivariate statistical(More)
The sensory quality of green tea changes greatly within a single spring season, but the mechanism is not clearly elucidated. Young shoots of the early, middle, and late spring season were subjected to metabolite profiling using gas chromatography-time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOF/MS) and ultraperformance liquid chromatography-quadrupole-TOF/MS.(More)
Metabolomics profiling provides comprehensive picture of the chemical composition in teas therefore may be used to assess tea quality objectively and reliably. In the present experiment, water and methanol extracts of green teas from China were analyzed by ultra-performance liquid chromatography-quadrupole time-of-flight mass spectrometry (UPLC-Q-TOF/MS)(More)
As the predominant secondary metabolic pathway in tea plants, flavonoid biosynthesis increases with increasing temperature and illumination. However, the concentration of most flavonoids decreases greatly in light-sensitive tea leaves when they are exposed to light, which further improves tea quality. To reveal the metabolism and potential functions of(More)
Jumonji domain-containing protein 1A (JMJD1A) plays a key role in the development and progression of several cancers. Here, we showed that the expression of JMJD1A is increased in cervical cancer cells and tissues, and that suppression of JMJD1A inhibits proliferation, migration, and invasion of cervical cancer cells. JMJD1A induced transcription of c-Myc,(More)
Rotary valve is mostly used as a control valve in hydraulic steering system. The existences of flow separation, cavitation and other phenomena in hydraulic steering system usually generate flow noise. Reynolds averaged Navier-Stokes (RANS) equations, Rayleigh cavitation model and RNG k-ε turbulence model equations governing the flow field hydraulic(More)
The chlorotic tea variety Huangjinya, a natural mutant, contains enhanced levels of free amino acids in its leaves, which improves the drinking quality of its brewed tea. Consequently, this chlorotic mutant has a higher economic value than the non-chlorotic varieties. However, the molecular mechanisms behind the increased levels of free amino acids in this(More)
Nitrogen (N) plays an important role in the formation of tea quality-related compounds, like amino acids and flavor/aroma origin compounds. Lipids, which have been reported to be affected by N deficiency, are precursors to the generation of flavor/aroma origin compounds in tea plant. However, there is no literature about the lipid profiles of tea plant(More)
