Production Of Phenolic Acid And Antioxidant Activity In Transformed Hairy Root Cultures Of Common Buckwheat (Fagopyrum Esculentum M.)

  title={Production Of Phenolic Acid And Antioxidant Activity In Transformed Hairy Root Cultures Of Common Buckwheat (Fagopyrum Esculentum M.)},
  author={Ahmed M M Gabr and Oksana Sytar and Abdelrahman R. Ahmed and Iryna Smetanska},
Common buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum Moench) is recognized as a healthy food in many countries because it is nutrient-rich crop. This experiment was conducted to investigate the antioxidant activity and production of phenolic acids from hairy cultures of roots, leaves and stems of Common buckwheat. In these cultures, a large amount of chlorogenic, p-hydroxybenzoic, p-anisic and caffeic acids were produced together with small amounts of the related phenolic acids, vanilic acids, p-coumaric…

Accumulation of amino acids and flavonoids in hairy root cultures of common buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum)

The increase in flavonoids positively correlated with the antioxidant capacity of the hairy root cultures, and was associated with the biotic stress reaction induced with A. rhizogenes.

Lignan accumulation in callus and Agrobacterium rhizogenes-mediated hairy root cultures of flax (Linum usitatissimum)

Antioxidant activity, as measured by2,2-diphenyl-1-picryl-hydrazyl and 2,2′-azino-bis(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulphonic acid-free radical scavenging assays, was significantly higher in hairy root cultures than in non-transformed cultures.

The Contribution of Buckwheat Genetic Resources to Health and Dietary Diversity

The biochemical evaluation of buckwheat genetic resources and the identification of elite genotypes for plant breeding and exploitation is described and the health effects of fagopyrin, phenolic acids, specific proteins and rutin are presented.

This review presents a comprehensive coverage of buckwheat germplasm research done till date along with a tangible perspective of integrating breeding and omics-driven approaches to accelerate higher genetic gains and enhance the nutritional benefits and adaptation to changing climates for future needs.

Free Radicals Scavenging Capacity, Antidiabetic and Antihypertensive Activities of Flavonoid-Rich Fractions from Leaves of Trichilia emetica and Opilia amentacea in an Animal Model of Type 2 Diabetes Mellitus

Better antihyperglycemia, antilipidemia, and antihypertensive properties of flavonoid-rich fractions from Trichilia emetica compared to the extract of Opilia amentacea are demonstrating antidiabetic potential of Trichia emetICA as therapeutic targets for the management of type 2 diabetes.

Revisiting the versatile buckwheat: reinvigorating genetic gains through integrated breeding and genomics approach

The state of the art in buckwheat research is outlined and concrete perspectives how modern breeding approaches can be implemented to accelerate the genetic gain are provided to address the issue of limited genetic gain and low productivity.

FtMYB16 interacts with Ftimportin‐α1 to regulate rutin biosynthesis in tartary buckwheat

The role of MATE transporter in rutin metabolism is figured out and a model of MYB TFs/importin-α complex in the nucleo-cytoplasmic trafficking pathway in plants is established, which may be useful for the design of artificially modified metabolic pathway.

A Brief Overview of Potential Treatments for Viral Diseases Using Natural Plant Compounds: The Case of SARS-Cov

The purpose of this review is to highlight the potential antiviral activity of plant compounds as effective and reliable agents against viral infections, especially by viruses from the coronavirus group.



Caffeic acid derivatives production by hairy root cultures of Echinacea purpurea.

These results demonstrate that biotechnological production of CADs in hairy roots of E. purpurea is possible and offer, for the very first time, an excellent biological model to study the biosynthetic pathway of medicinally important CADs.

Growth and Rutin Production in Hairy Root Cultures of Buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum M.)

Findings indicate that hairy root cultures of buckwheat culture could be a valuable alternative approach for rutin production, and supplementation with auxins increased the growth rate, but had no significant effect on r Rutin production by H8.

Caffeic acid derivatives from a hairy root culture of Lactuca virosa

In a search for biologically active phenolics, a hydroalcoholic extract from the hairy roots of Lactuca virosa was fractionated by chromatographical methods. The procedure led to the isolation of a

Production of Iridoids and Phenolics by Transformed Harpagophytum procumbens Root Cultures

The present report is the first one dealing with the investigation of transformed root cultures from Harpagophytum procumbens plants, which possessed relatively high DPPH‐radical scavenging properties and no antiradical activity was detected.

Genetic transformation of buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentum M.) with Agrobacterium rhizogenes and production of rutin in transformed root cultures

An efficient protocol for transformation of buckwheat root cultures is developed by using stem explants that were infected by Agrobacterium rhizogenes strain 15834, a strain with the binary vector pBI121 to confirm transformation in 17 of 20 kanamycin-resistant hairy root cultures.

Phenolic compound production by different morphological phenotypes in hairy root cultures of Fagopyrum tataricum Gaertn.

The established roots of hairy roots of tartary buckwheat displayed two morphological phenotypes when cultured on hormone-free medium containing Murashige-Skoog salts and vitamins: thin phenotype and thick phenotype.

Diterpenoid Tanshinones and Phenolic Acids from Cultured Hairy Roots of Salvia miltiorrhiza Bunge and Their Antimicrobial Activities

The results indicated that the major portion of the antimicrobial activity was due to the presence of tanshinones and phenolic acids in S. miltiorrhiza hairy roots, which could be used as the materials for producing antimicrobial agents for use in agricultural practice in the future.

Specific and total activities of the allelochemicals identified in buckwheat

It seems that rutin, among the other tested compounds, is the major allelochemical in Polish buckwheat, as calculated by its concentration and its growth inhibitory effect.
