The objective of the present study was to determine whether green tea extracts are inhibitory to lipid oxidations catalyzed by lipoxygenase (LOX) and hemoglobin (Hb) using fish as an animal model. Green tea was extracted with water. LOX was extracted from the gills of grey mullet and tilapia, respectively. The LOX activity was determined using(More)
We examined a low pH effect on root growth of Atractylodes lancea, a Chinese traditional medicinal plant, and accumulation of the major active compound, β-eudesmol. Our results have shown that low pH increases root hair density and root dry weight, but reduces the length of the main root. More acidic pH stimulates production of β-eudesmol in A. lancea roots.
