Oxidative DNA damage preventive activity and antioxidant potential of Stevia rebaudiana (Bertoni) Bertoni, a natural sweetener.
TLDR
Results indicate that Stevia rebaudiana may be useful as a potential source of natural antioxidants.
Nicotiana tabacum overexpressing γ-ECS exhibits biotic stress tolerance likely through NPR1-dependent salicylic acid-mediated pathway
TLDR
The results suggest GSH to be a member in cross-communication with other signaling molecules in mitigating biotic stress likely through NPR1-dependent SA-mediated pathway.
An efficient protocol for in vitro regeneration of Podophyllum hexandrum , a critically endangered medicinal plant
TLDR
Rhizome explants were used to develop a protocol for in vitro plantlet regeneration of Podophyllum hexandrum through direct organogenesis, and leaf regenerated calli showed the presence of podophyllotoxin in HPLC analysis.
Glutathione as a signaling molecule - another challenge to pathogens
TLDR
This review highlights on the progress made in the cross-communication of GSH with other established signaling molecules through which GSH acts in abating biotic stress.
Proteins differentially expressed in elicited cell suspension culture of Podophyllum hexandrum with enhanced podophyllotoxin content
TLDR
Elicitor-induced PTOX accumulation in P. hexandrum cell cultures provides a responsive model system to profile modulations in proteins related to phenylpropanoid/monolignol biosynthesis and other defense responses.
Glutathione signaling acts through NPR1-dependent SA-mediated pathway to mitigate biotic stress
TLDR
It is shown here that the expression of glutathione S-transferase (GST), the NPR1-independent SA-mediated gene was unchanged in transgenic tobacco with enhanced level of GSH as compared to wild-type plants, which provided significant insight into the involvement of G SH inNPR1-dependent SA- mediated pathway in mitigating biotic stress.
In vivo efficacy of calceolarioside A against experimental visceral leishmaniasis.
TLDR
Bioactivity-guided fractionation has led to the successful isolation of calceolarioside A from the methanolic extract of night jasmine leaves and the first demonstration of its potent activity against visceral leishmaniasis.
Agrobacterium-mediated genetic transformation of mint with E. coli glutathione synthetase gene
TLDR
Morphologically identical transgenic mint with bacterial glutathione synthetase gene has been developed and results are discussed in relation to heavy metal trafficking pathways in higher plants and to the interest of using plastid expression of PCS for biotechnological applications.
