Wild Licorice (Glycyrrhiza uralensis) is important medical plant. It is distributed in the Asia, espe- cially in the semi-arid zone of China and Mongolia. However wild Licorice contains the high quality of glycyr- rhizin (GL), which is the active ingredient holding in the root, the cultivated Licorice in China and Japan contains it low. The objective of this study is to establish the cultivating method of the high quality Licorice. First, field investigation of the high quality Licorice was… Expand

Study on the Characteristics of Growth, Yield, and Pharmacological Composition of a new Glycyrrhiza Variety Licorice ‘Wongam (Glycyrrhiza glabra × Glycyrrhiza uralensis)’ in Temperature Gradient Tunnel and Suitable Cultivation Area of Korean
Licorice is a semi-desert plant that is difficult to grow under Korean climatic conditions. In order to increase the adaptability of licorice in Korea, the Rural Development Administration (RDA) hasExpand
Effect of drought stress on growth parameters, osmolyte contents, antioxidant enzymes and glycyrrhizin synthesis in licorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra L.) grown in the field.
Results indicate that under intense drought, with only 23% of the normal water dose being applied, an appropriate choice of genotype can still lead to acceptable glycyrrhizin yields. Expand
Phytochemical composition, health effects, and crop management of liquorice (Glycyrrhiza glabra L.): Α medicinal plant
Particular interest is given on glycyrrhizin and its extraction procedures, since it is the main bioactive compound of liquorice roots and its content determines the final product quality. Expand
Molecular Basis of C-30 Product Regioselectivity of Legume Oxidases Involved in High-Value Triterpenoid Biosynthesis
Two amino acid residues that control C-30 product regioselectivity and contribute to the chemodiversity of triterpenes accumulated in legumes are identified and combined with metabolic engineering to enhance the production of high-value triterpene compounds. Expand


Aim for production of Glycyrrhizae Radix in Japan (3): development of a new licorice cultivar
A new cultivar suitable for the domestic production of licorice was developed by crossbreeding between strain A-19 with a high GL content as the mother and strain G-6 with vigorous growth as the father. Expand
[Effects of nutrient solution concentration on inorganic and glycyrrhizin contents of Glycyrrhiza glabra Linn].
Licorice growth and glycyrrhizin content in the root reached the highest values when the plants received nutrient solution approximately equivalent to a quarter unit of Hoagland solution, and it was indicated that licorice may absorb large amounts of nutrient solution but the glycyRrhizIn content may not increase.

Licorice, Glycyrrhiza glabra Linn., is one of herbal medicines widely used for various purposes, including as a sweetener and for gastric ulcer treatment. However, environmental destruction due toExpand
Improving Glycyrrhiza uralensis salt tolerance with N+ ion irradiation
Low energy (25 keV) N+ ions were implanted into liquorice (Glycyrrhiza uralensis) seeds at a fluency of either zero (control) or 900 × (2.6 × 1013) ions/cm2. After irradiation, all the seeds wereExpand
Economic importance of licorice
The importance of licorice is reviewed because the constituent—glycyrrhizin—is widely used as a natural sweetener and also as a pharmaceutical agent because of its anti-inflammatory and hepatoprotective properties. Expand
