Low temperature metabolism of apple phenolics and quiescence of Phlyctaena vagabunda.
The content of chlorogenic acid, (+)-catechin, (-)-epicatechin, phloretin glycosides, and quercetin glycosides in fresh and stored Golden Delicious apples (Malus domestica Borkh) was determined. TheExpand

Role of endogenous flavonoids in resistance mechanism of Vigna to aphids.
Cultivated and wild species of the genus Vigna were screened for their flavonoid content. Flavonoid HPLC analyses clearly showed that cultivated lines of cowpea (Vigna unguiculata L. Walp.) are veryExpand

Electrosynthesized poly(pyrrole)/poly(2-naphthol) bilayer membrane as an effective anti-interference layer for simultaneous determination of acethylcholine and choline by a dual electrode
Several neural diseases appear related to the neurotransmitter acethylcholine (ACh) and its metabolite choline (Ch) brain levels so that their simultaneous determination is essential. A cross-talkExpand

Flavonoid constituents of seed coats of Vicia faba (Fabaceae) in relation to genetic control of their color
Flavonoid aglycones were identified from Vicia faba L. seed coats corresponding to eight genetically determined colors. Myricetin predominates over quercetin in beige, black, brown, green, red, andExpand
