Sterculia striata seed kernel oil: characterization and thermal stability

The objective of the present work was to characterize sterculia seed kernel oil. The chemical composition of the seeds, physicochemical properties as well as the fatty acid composition of the kernel

Determination of cyclopropenoid fatty acids inSterculia seed oils from senegal

Seed oils ofSterculia tomentosa andS. tragacantha (Sterculiaceae) were found to contain malvalic (5.8 and 5.1%), sterculic (11.3 and 30.2%) and dihydrosterculic (0.9 and 0.5%) acids. The total amount

Effects of cyclopropenoid fatty acids on fungal growth and lipid composition

Although CPE appeared to inhibit fatty acid desaturation by F. oxysporum, gross increases in the proportion of stearate were limited to the triacylglycerol fraction during 30 μM treatments, the possibility that the CPE synthesized by plants serve as antifungal agents is discussed.

Characterization of Cyclopropane Fatty-acid Synthase fromSterculia foetida *

It is concluded that SfCPA-FAS is a microsomal localized membrane protein that catalyzes the addition of methylene groups derived from S-adenosyl-l-methionine across the double bond of oleic acid esterified to the sn-1 position of PC.

Pharmacological Studies On Sterculia Foetida Leaves

An alcoholic extract of Sterculia foetida L. leaves was subjected to pharmacological screening using various animal models and exhibited significant antiinflammatory activity in the acute carrageenan-induced rat paw edema and the chronic granuloma pouch models, however, it was devoid of analgesic activities in the tail flick model.

The fatty acid composition of seed oils from ten plant families with particular reference to cyclopropene and dihydrosterculic acids

Oil contents and fatty acid compositions of 40 seed oils of the plant families Elaecarpaceae, Thymelaeceae, Malvaceae, Sterculiaceae; Anacardiaceae, Celestraceae, Sapindaceae; Ebenaceae, Sapotaceae and Rhamnaceae are presented.

Comparative Study of the Physicochemical Characterization of Some Oils as Potential Feedstock for Biodiesel Production

Physicochemical properties of Cucurbita pepo, Brachystegia eurycoma, Cucumis melo, Luffa cylindrica, and Arachis hypogaea oils were studied to determine their potential as viable feedstock for

Effects of sterculic acid on stearoyl-CoA desaturase in differentiating 3T3-L1 adipocytes.

Cyclopropenoid Fatty Acids of Sterculia Oils by Gas Liquid Chromatography

Silver nitrate treated methyl esters of the seed oils of Sterculia alata, Sterculia foetida, Sterculia guttata and Sterculia villosa were subjected to gas liquid chromatography and were found to

Sterculic Oil, a Natural SCD1 Inhibitor, Improves Glucose Tolerance in Obese ob/ob Mice

The desaturase indices, a proxy of SCD1 activity, were reduced in liver and adipose tissue of SO-supplemented animals, and this reduction was associated with improved glucose and insulin tolerance and attenuated hepatic inflammation in obese ob/ob mice, while no appreciable changes were observed in lean control mice receiving SO.
