Purification and characterization of antioxidant peptide from hoki (Johnius belengerii) frame protein by gastrointestinal digestion.
APHPH decreased t-butylhydroperoxide-induced cytotoxicity on human embryonic lung fibroblasts and efficiently protected free-radical-induced DNA damage and inhibited lipid peroxidation higher than that of alpha-tocopherol as positive control.
Suppression of CaCYP1, a novel cytochrome P450 gene, compromises the basal pathogen defense response of pepper plants.
The results indicated that CaCYP1, a novel cytochrome P450 in pepper plants, may play a role in plant defense response pathways that involve salicylic acid and abscisic acid signaling pathways.
EST and microarray analyses of pathogen-responsive genes in hot pepper (Capsicum annuum L.) non-host resistance against soybean pustule pathogen (Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. glycines)
This study is the first report of large-scale sequencing and non-host defense transcriptome analysis of the hot pepper plant species and finds that the defense reaction of thehot pepper may involve the deactivation of gibberellin.
Preparation and antioxidative activity of hoki frame protein hydrolysate using ultrafiltration membranes
Hoki frame protein, which is normally discarded as an industrial by-product in fish plants, was hydrolyzed with various enzymes. The antioxidative activity of the hydrolysates was investigated, and
Molecular characterization of a pepper C2 domain-containing SRC2 protein implicated in resistance against host and non-host pathogens and abiotic stresses
CaSRC2-1 encodes a novel C2 domain-containing protein that targets the plasma membrane and plays a critical role in the abiotic stress and defense responses of pepper plants.
Identification of a CaRAV1 possessing an AP2/ERF and B3 DNA-binding domain from pepper leaves infected with Xanthomonas axonopodis pv. glycines 8ra by differential display.
Evidence is provided that the pepper RAV transcription factor homolog may function in plant defense responses against bacterial pathogens in the chili pepper plant through rapidly induced expression of CaRAV1.
Ethnobotanical study on medicinal plants used by local Van Kieu ethnic people of Bac Huong Hoa nature reserve, Vietnam.
The Van Kieu ethnic group holds valuable knowledge about uses of medicinal plant resources which is inherited through generations however this knowledge was not documented, which highlights the need for documenting and publicizing the traditional medicinal knowledge which will provide basic data for further research and conservation.
Tussilago farfara L. augments TRAIL-induced apoptosis through MKK7/JNK activation by inhibition of MKK7‑TIPRL in human hepatocellular carcinoma cells.
This is the first report to describe TF as a novel TRAIL sensitizer, unveiling a potentially novel therapeutic strategy in cancer therapy.
The chili pepper CaATL1: an AT-hook motif-containing transcription factor implicated in defence responses against pathogens.
Results provide the first evidence of a role for a plant AT-hook motif-containing transcription factor in pathogen defence response and generated CaATL1-over-expressing transgenic tomato plants which showed enhanced disease resistance against bacterial and oomycete pathogens.
Capsicum annuum dehydrin, an osmotic-stress gene in hot pepper plants.
Cadhn, a late embryogenesis abundant (lea) gene, was selected from the 5' single pass sequenced cDNA clones and deduced polypeptide has 87% identity with potato dehydrin C17, but very little identity with the dehydrin genes of other organisms.
