A yeast strain designated as Y-1 was isolated and characterized from wine yeast ("Jiuqu"). Based on the morphological and biochemical results, along with the rDNA internal transcribed spacer region (ITS), Y-1 was identified to be a Pichia anomala strain. Y-1 is an ethanol-tolerant strain, enduring ethanol concentrations of up to 14 %. Y-1 growth medium… (More)
OBJECTIVE To establish an ultra-performance liquid chromatography (UPLC) fingerprinting method for quality control of Phragmitis rhizoma from Baiyangdian. MATERIALS AND METHODS Ultrasonic extraction with 70% methanol was performed on 10 samples of P. rhizoma collected from 10 different villages in Baiyangdian. The sample solutions were analyzed by Waters… (More)
The title compound (cimifugin), C(16)H(18)O(6)·0.5CH(3)OH, was isolated from the rhizome of Actaea asiatica Hara. The asymmetric unit contains two independent mol-ecules and a solvent methanol mol-ecule. The five-numbered ring adopts an envelope conformation in each molecule. Intra- and inter-molecular O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds stabilize the crystal structure.
