In vitro organogenesis and antioxidant enzymes activity in Acanthophyllum sordidum
Protein content decreased in calli and increased significantly during regeneration of shoots from callus, and high catalase activity was detected in seedlings and regenerated shoots, whereas high peroxidaseactivity was observed incalli and Regenerated roots. Expand
Beta casein-micelle as a nano vehicle for solubility enhancement of curcumin; food industry application
Abstract Curcumin is a potent anticancer and antioxidant natural polyphenol poorly soluble in aqueous solutions. Beta-casein (B-CN), an amphiphilic self-assembling protein that can form micellarExpand
Bienertia sinuspersici (Chenopodiaceae): A New Species from Southwest Asia and Discovery of a Third Terrestrial C4 Plant Without Kranz Anatomy
Its wide distribution indicates that its novel C4 photosynthesis may confer advantages for CO2 fixation in these habitats not found in C4 species having conventional Kranz anatomy, and supports the conclusion that this widely distributed, novel plant is an overlooked new species. Expand
The effect of salt stress on lipid peroxidation and antioxidative enzymes in callus of two Acanthophyllum species
A. glandulosum callus is better protected against salinity-induced oxidative damage by maintaining higher activities of antioxidant enzymes than the callus of A. sordidum under salt stress. Expand
Cytotaxonomy of some species of Acanthophyllum (Caryophyllaceae) from Iran
The occurrence of polyploidy in some species indicates that this phenomenon plays an important role in the evolution of the Acanthophyllum genus and chiasma average for all species are reported here for the rst time. Expand
Antioxidant and Anticancer Activities of Walnut (Juglans regia L.) Protein Hydrolysates Using Different Proteases
A direct correlation between antioxidant and anticancer activities of walnut peptide fractions exists and supports their potential therapeutic benefit. Expand
Paraoxonase phenotype distribution in a healthy Iranian population.
The distribution of paraoxonase phenotypes in this Iranian population was trimodal and comparable to that of Caucasians from North America; however, overall enzyme activity was lower than that reported for Caucasians. Expand
New chromosome counts in the genus Cousinia and the related genus Schmalhausenia (Asteraceae, Cardueae)
Twenty chromosome counts are reported in the genus Cousinia and the monotypic genus Schmalhausenia, which are part of the Arctium group, from Armenia, Iran, Kazakhstan and Uzbekistan, and some considerations on the chromosomal evolution in the group are made. Expand
Induction of apoptosis and cell cycle arrest by pericarp polyphenol-rich extract of Baneh in human colon carcinoma HT29 cells.
The results suggest that due to the existence of bioactive components, methanolic extract of the Baneh has significant cytotoxic effects against human colon carcinoma HT29 cells. Expand
Evaluation of p53 and Bcl-2 genes and proteins expression in human breast cancer T47D cells treated with extracts of Astrodaucus persicus (Boiss.) Drude in comparison to Tamoxifen.
The results suggest that the methanolic extracts of Astrodaucus persicus especially its root extract may contains bioactive compounds, probably coumarins that prevents proliferation of T47D breast carcinoma cells by mechanisms such as apoptosis. Expand
