Phytochemistry and bioactivity of aromatic and medicinal plants from the genus Agastache (Lamiaceae)
Agastache is a small genus of Lamiaceae, comprising 22 species of perennial aromatic medicinal herbs. In this article, we review recent advances in phytochemical, pharmacological, biotechnologicalExpand
Neural modeling of plant tissue cultures: a review
Artificial neural networks (ANNs) are widely used in science and technology, and have been successfully applied in plant tissue cultures. First of all, ANNs can simulate the growth of plants underExpand
New Insights into the Microbiota of the Svalbard Reindeer Rangifer tarandus platyrhynchus
Svalbard reindeer (Rangifer tarandus platyrhynchus) is a non-migratory subspecies of reindeer inhabiting the high-arctic archipelago of Svalbard. In contrast to other Rangifer tarandus subspecies,Expand
Antioxidant activity of extracts from leaves and roots of Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge, S. przewalskii Maxim., and S. verticillata L.
Three Salvia species have been studied for antioxidant activity in methanol extracts from roots and leaves. The presence of the polyphenols and tanshinones was screened by HPLC and spectrophotometricExpand
Proliferative and antioxidant activity of Symphytum officinale root extract
Abstract The root of Symphytum officinale L. is commonly used in folk medicine to promote the wound healing, reduce the inflammation and in the treatment of broken bones. The objective of ourExpand
Greater Celandine's Ups and Downs−21 Centuries of Medicinal Uses of Chelidonium majus From the Viewpoint of Today's Pharmacology
As antique as Dioscorides era are the first records on using Chelidonium as a remedy to several sicknesses. Inspired by the “signatura rerum” principle and an apparent ancient folk tradition, variousExpand
The choice of the DNA extraction method may influence the outcome of the soil microbial community structure analysis
Metagenomics approaches and recent improvements in the next‐generation sequencing methods, have become a method of choice in establishing a microbial population structure. Many commercial soil DNAExpand
Sampling, metadata and DNA extraction - important steps in metagenomic studies.
Metagenomic studies have become increasingly popular. They allow for the estimation of biodiversity in complex populations. This diversity presents an enormous but largely unexpected genetic andExpand
Regulation of Medicago sativa L. somatic embryos regeneration by gibberellin A3 and abscisic acid in relation to starch content and α-amylase activity
Somatic embryo quality is an important factor decisive for the efficiency of somatic embryogenesis. Addition gibberellic acid (GA3) at a concentration of 1 μM to germination medium improved theExpand
Influence of plant growth regulators on volatiles produced by in vitro grown shoots of Agastache rugosa (Fischer & C.A.Meyer) O. Kuntze
The composition of volatile organic compounds emitted by in vitro shoots of Agastache rugosa (Fischer & C.A. Meyer) O. Kuntze (Lamiaceae) was studied using headspace solid-phase microextraction–gasExpand
