Brassinosteroids are of universal occurrence in plants. They have been reported to affect plant growth and development through a spectrum of physiological responses. Recently they are reported to confer resistance in plants against a number of biotic and abiotic stresses. In the present study, a brassinosteroid was isolated from Aegle marmelos Correa. (Rutaceae) which was characterized to be 24-epibrassinolide (EBL) using various spectroscopic techniques (TLC and ESI-MS analysis). It was… 
Isolation and characterization of 24-Epibrassinolide from Brassica juncea L. and its effects on growth, Ni ion uptake, antioxidant defense of Brassica plants and in vitro cytotoxicity
TLDR
It was observed that pre-treatment of isolated 24-Epibrassinolide lowered the Ni ion uptake in plants and improved growth, and the amelioration of Ni toxicity was also observed by the activities of antioxidant enzymes.
Genoprotective potential of Brassica juncea (L.) Czern. against mercury-induced genotoxicity in Allium cepa L.
TLDR
This study clearly indicates that the chloroform extract of B. juncea seeds has antigenotoxic potential against mercury-induced genotoxicity in a dose-dependent manner by evaluating A. cepa root chromosomal aberration assay.
Allium cepa assay based comparative study of selected vegetables and the chromosomal aberrations due to heavy metal accumulation
Allium Cepa Root Chromosomal Aberration Assay: A Review
TLDR
The Allium cepa root chromosomal aberration assay is widely used to determine genotoxic and antigenotoxic effects of different plant extracts, which contributes to its increasing application in environmental monitoring.
CYTOGENOTOXICITY EVALUATION OF WATER CONTAMI- NATED WITH SOME TEXTILE AZO DYES USING RAPD MARK- ERS AND CHROMOSOMAL ABERRATIONS OF ONION (Allium cepa) ROOT CELLS
TLDR
The results indicated that the root length of Allium cepa reduced with an increasing azo dye concentration and the total chromosomal aberrations and RAPD profiles were performed as useful tool for detection and biomarker assays for the evaluation of genotoxic effects on textile azo dyes polluted plants.
A REVIEW ON AEGLE MARMELOS : A POTENTIAL MEDICINAL TREE
TLDR
Various phytochemical, ethnobotanical and pharmacological evaluations have been reported in this literature for the important pote ntial of the Aegle marmelos.
A REVIEW ON AEGLE MARMELOS : A POTENTIAL MEDICINAL TREE
Since time immemorial, plants and their products have been the primary resource of food and medicines for mankind. Aegle marmelos commonly known as bael (or bel), belonging to the family Rutaceae, is
Effect of 28-homobrassinolide on antioxidant defence system in Raphanus sativus L. under chromium toxicity
TLDR
It was observed that 28-HBL treatment considerably reduced the impact of Cr-stress on seedlings which was evinced upon analysis of morphological and biochemical parameters of 7-days old radish seedlings.
Inhibition of H2O2-induced DNA damage in single cell gel electrophoresis assay (comet assay) by castasterone isolated from leaves of centella asiatica
TLDR
The present study reports the presence of Castasterone from leaves of Centella asiatica, an important medicinal herb commonly used as a memory enhancer and immunomodulator, and an attempt to study antigenotoxic activity of the isolated Castastersone against H2O2 -induced DNA damage in human blood lymphocytes.

TLDR
It suggests that both pathways of early and late C6 oxidation pathways are operating in tea to produce brassinolide, the most active brassinosteroid biologically.
Effects of the plant steroidal hormone, 24-epibrassinolide, on the mitotic index and growth of onion (Allium cepa) root tips.
TLDR
This study confirms the suppositions of previous authors who have claimed that exogenously applied BL can increase the number of mitoses in plants, but failed to show cytogenetic data.
Isolation and characterization of brassinosteroids from immature seeds of Camellia sinensis (O) Kuntze
TLDR
The identified brassinosteroids and their derivatives are active constituents of late C-6 oxidation pathway, thereby suggesting the biosynthesis of brass inosteroids in tea seeds byLate C- 6 oxidation pathway.

TLDR
The effect of various concentrations of Aegle marmelos (AME) on the doxorubicin (DOX)-induced genotoxic effects in mice bone marrow was studied, and the greatest protection against DOX- induced genotoxicity was observed at 350 mg/kg AME.

TLDR
Recent studies aimed at understanding how BRs modulate stress responses suggest that complex molecular changes underlie BR-induced stress tolerance in plants and clarify whether the ability of BRs to increase plant resistance to a range of stresses lies in the complex interactions ofBRs with other hormones.
Brassinosteroid confers tolerance in Arabidopsis thaliana and Brassica napus to a range of abiotic stresses
TLDR
It is demonstrated that treatment with 24-epibrassinolide (EBR), a BR, increases the basic thermotolerance of Brassica napus and tomato seedlings and helps to overcome a salt-stress-induced inhibition of seed germination.
