Twenty-two sterols were identified by capillary gas chromatography and capillary gas chromatography/mass spectroscopy inCucurbita maxima grown under green-house conditions. Both whole plants and individual tissues (leaves, stems, roots, cotyledons, flowers) were analyzed at weekly intervals during the 12-week development of the plant. In whole plants, sterol accumulation parallels plant growth except for a period in the mid-life cycle where there is a reduction in the amount of sterol… Expand

Plant Sterol Diversity in Pollen from Angiosperms
TLDR
The inhibition of cycloeucalenol neosynthesis by squalestatin was in full agreement with a de novo biogenesis and an apparent truncated pathway in the pollen tube, as a first step towards a comprehensive analysis of sterol biogenesis in the male gametophyte. Expand
Growth ofCururbita maxima L. plants in the presence of the cycloartenol synthase inhibitor U18666A1
TLDR
The data show that sterols are crucial for maintaining plant growth and viability, but do not address the cotyledonary effect on growth with respect to sterol biosynthesis. Expand
α-Glucosidase and α-amylase inhibitors from seed oil: A review of liposoluble substance to treat diabetes
  • Hui Teng, L. Chen
  • Chemistry, Medicine
  • Critical reviews in food science and nutrition
  • 2017
TLDR
This review is aimed at highlighting the main liposoluble classes of α-glucosidase and α-amylase inhibitors, but it is not intended to be an exhaustive review on the subject. Expand
Three New Triterpene Esters from Pumpkin (Cucurbita maxima) Seeds
TLDR
Three new multiflorane-type triterpene esters isolated from seeds of Cucurbita maxima exhibited melanogenesis inhibitory activities comparable with those of arbutin, and in cytotoxicity assays, compounds 1 and 3 exhibited weak cytot toxicity. Expand
Three New Multiflorane-Type Triterpenes from Pumpkin (Cucurbita maxima) Seeds
TLDR
Three new multiflorane-type triterpenes were isolated from seeds of Cucurbita maxima and exhibited potent inhibitory effects on melanogenesis, with low cytotoxicities, and 2 exhibited single-digit micromolar cytotoxicity against HL-60 and P388 cells. Expand
Pumpkin Seed Oil: An Alternative Medicine
TLDR
This review highlights the characterization, properties and use of Pumpkin seed oil from various pumpkin species against several diseases pathophysiologies and will provide overall insights to the chemists, biologists and researchers on the roles of pumpkin seed oil extracts that possess promising biological activities.

Sterol composition and biosynthesis in sorghum: Importance to developmental regulation
TLDR
Results imply that a critical mass of sterol is associated with sorghum for floral induction, reaching a plateau level that surpassed the sterol content as flowering progressed. Expand
Changes in the levels and composition of sterols in different tissues of Lolium temulentum plants during floral development
TLDR
This is the first report of the sterol composition of developing shoot apices, and the results emphasize the dynamic nature of sterol metabolism during reproductive growth of L. temulentum. Expand
Qualitative and Quantitative Changes in Sterol Lipids of Cotyledons of Germinating Soybeans
Soybean seedlings were grown at 28°C in the dark or the light for 12 days, and four classes of sterol lipids, sterol esters (SE), free sterols (St), acylated steryl glycosides (ASG) and sterylExpand
Sterol composition during the life cycle of the soybean and the squash
TLDR
The data indicate low synthesis or high turnover of sterols (or both) in these plants in the weeks at or just prior to flowering. Expand
Changes in Δ5- and Δ7-sterols during germination and seedling development ofCucurbita maximaduring germination and seedling development ofCucurbita maxima
TLDR
It is suggested that a function exists for the Δ5-compounds only in the early part of the life cycle of C. maxima, unlike most of the other higher plants studied, as the level of Δ7-sterols increased during germination as well as during seedling development and maturation. Expand
Changes in Sterol Lipids of Axis and Root of Germinating Soybeans
Soybean seedlings were grown at 28°C in the dark or the light for 12 days, and four classes of sterol lipids, sterol esters (SE), free sterols (St), acylated steryl glycosides (ASG) and sterylExpand
The distribution of sterols in algae
TLDR
Gas and thin layer chromatography and mass spectroscopy in particular, have been used to resolve some of the confusion concerning the sterol composition of algae. Expand
Sterols of Amaranthaceae
TLDR
Nineteen species and varieties of Amaranthaceae were analysed for sterol composition, and Spinasterol and 7-stigmastenol were the dominant sterols in all species, although low levels of 5-unsaturated sterols were detected. Expand
High level of glycosylated sterols in species of solanum and sterol changes during the development of the tomato
TLDR
Changes in sterol composition during the development of tomato indicated a low proportion of glycosylated sterols in the ungerminated seeds with these compounds becoming progressively predominant compared with other sterols during the course of germination. Expand
Codisterol and other Δ5-sterols in the seeds of Cucurbita maxima
Abstract A substantial amount ( ca 18%) of the sterol found in the seeds of Cucurbita maxima had a Δ-bond and consisted of seven components. They were identified as 25(27)-dehydroporiferasterol,Expand
