Floristic and molecular phylogenetic analysis of the distribution of phytoecdysteroids among plants of North-East Russia ( Asteraceae and Caryophyllaceae )
The review is devoted to analysis of the exploration degree of the world flora for the presence of phytoecdysteroids which are plant analogs of molting and metamorphosis hormones in insects. The

Ecydysteroids are good candidates as elicitors for gene-switch systems to be used in medical gene therapy and research applications, and are also being considered as nutraceutical additives to food products.
To satisfy the mass demand for ecdysteroids in the pharmaceutical industry, non-purified or weakly purified plant formulations from super producer species with null toxicity rate that do not require very expensive processing technologies have good prospects.
Phytoecdysteroids from Silene plants: distribution, diversity and biological (antitumour, antibacterial and antioxidant) activities
The biological (antitumour, antibacterial and antioxidant) activities and the phytoecdysteroids of genus Silene are reviewed and the folk and traditional effects of Silene plants are reported on.
Diversity of Secondary Metabolites in the Genus Silene L. (Caryophyllaceae)—Structures, Distribution, and Biological Properties
The genus Silene comprises more than 700 species, which are widely distributed in temperate zones of the Northern Hemisphere, but are also present in Africa and have been introduced in other continents.
ODAP levels in some Lathyrus species distributed on Burdur-Isparta provinces in Turkey
A preliminary note seems to point to a secondary gene pool that may serve as a valuable source of genetic material for grass pea improvement.
Importance and quality of roseroot (Rhodiola rosea L.) growing in the European North.
The importance and traditional use of roseroot (Rhodiola rosea L.) among the peoples of Lapland and the northern and sub-arctic Urals have been reviewed and some phytochemical characteristics of ro Seroot plants of Finnish and Komi origin have been studied.
Hemolymph molting hormone concentrations in red king crabs from the Barents Sea
Low concentrations of circulating ecdysteroids in hemolymph of intermolt red king crabs in three coastal areas of the Barents Sea can be used in further investigations of red king crab growth rates and their application to the development of aquaculture methods for this species.
Investigation of ecdysteroid content and composition of Silene repens indigenous in Mongolia and introduced into western Siberia
It has been shown that the ecological conditions, such as altitude above sea level and humidity, influence the ecdysteroid composition and BAS levels.

The experimental approach included the measurement of ecdysteroid levels in different plant organs and an evaluation of the contribution of individual organs to the total amount of 20-hydroxyecdysone (20E) produced by the plant.
Ecological chemistry and biochemistry of plant terpenoids
Recent chemistry of conifer terpenoids, A.A. San Feliciano and J.L. Luis environmental control of essential oil production in Mediterranean plants, J.J. Fisher recent advances in the ecological chemistry of plant Terpenoids.
Ecdysteroids fromPycnogonum litorale (Arthropoda, Pantopoda) act as chemical defense againstCarcinus maenas (Crustacea, Decapoda).
The present results demonstrate for the first time chemical defense in arthropods in a marine predator-prey relationship and provide evidence that ES contained in one animal can act as feeding deterrents on another animal.
Screening of Japanese Ferns for Phytoecdysones. I
Japanese ferns from 20 families, representing 76 genera, 283 species, 39 varieties, and 1 form, have been subjected to screening tests by means of bioassay for the presence of phytoecdysones, finding a total of 170 species to show the insect moulting hormone activity.
Screening results of plants for phytoecdysones.
13 species of Pteridophyta and 23 species of Gymnospermae and Angios permae were newly found to show the insect-moulting activity and the chemotaxonomical relations were discussed.
