Differential accumulation of monolignol-derived compounds in elicited flax (Linum usitatissimum) cell suspension cultures
Lignin and lignans share monolignols as common precursors and are both potentially involved in plant defence against pathogens. In this study, we investigated the effects of fungal elicitors onExpand
Investigation of lignan accumulation in developing Linum usitatissimum seeds by immunolocalization and HPLC
Abstract Lignans are widely distributed plant metabolites associated with a large range of biological activities. An immunological probe was previously developed to immunolocalize lignans in matureExpand
Extraction of lignans from flaxseed and evaluation of their biological effects on breast cancer MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 cell lines.
Over the last decade, there has been an increasing interest in using flaxseed (Linum usitatissimum) in diet in order to improve nutritional and health status. Lignans are major components ofExpand
Solanidine isolation from Solanum tuberosum by centrifugal partition chromatography.
The aim of this investigation was the preparative isolation of solanidine (aglycone of the two main potato glycoalkaloids: α-chaconine and α-solanine) from fresh Solanum tuberosum (cv. Pompadour)Expand
Development and evaluation of an enriched natural antioxidant preparation obtained from aqueous spinach (Spinacia oleracea) extracts by an adsorption procedure
Spinach (Spinacia oleracea) leaves contain antioxidant flavonoids, in particular spinacetin and patuletin. An adsorption procedure for the recovery of these flavonoids from a crude spinach extractExpand
Development of antibodies against secoisolariciresinol--application to the immunolocalization of lignans in Linum usitatissimum seeds.
Lignans are widely distributed plant metabolites associated with a large range of biological activities. In order to gain insight into their biosynthesis and their spatio-temporal accumulation anExpand
Development of H1e histone linker-specific antibodies by means of synthetic peptides.
A large body of data suggests that the linker histones family (H1) affects gene expression. Investigation of the linker histones role is then of a major interest in cell cycle studies withExpand
Iconography : Identification by NMR and accumulation of a neolignan, the dehydrodiconiferyl alcohol-4-β- d -glucoside, in Linum usitatissimum cell cultures
Les phenylpropanoides representent une large classe de metabolites secondaires chez les vegetaux chez lesquels ils sont souvent impliques dans des mecanismes de defense. Cette etude presenteExpand
High accumulation of dehydrodiconiferyl alcohol-4-β-d-glucoside in free and immobilized Linum usitatissimum cell cultures
As flaxseed mainly accumulates lignans (secoisolariciresinol diglucoside and matairesinol), these compounds were barely or not detected in plant cell suspensions initiated from Linum usitatissimum.Expand
Altered nitrogen metabolism associated with de-differentiated suspension cultures derived from root cultures of Datura stramonium studied by heteronuclear multiple bond coherence (HMBC) NMR
De-differentiation of transformed root cultures of Datura stramonium has previously been shown to cause a loss of tropane alkaloid synthetic capacity. This indicates a marked shift in physiologicalExpand
