Protein and polyphenol profile changes in soybean roots under aluminum stress

July 2010

  It is well documented that aluminum (Al) toxicity is the most important constraint of crop production on acid soils. Chelation of Al in the rhizosphere with root secreted organic acid anions is a common mechanism of Al tolerance in most plants including soybean. Phenolic substances are recently implicated as additional physiological mechanism of plant Al tolerance. This study was undertaken to investigate the...

Study of inter-specific relationship in six species of Sesbania Scop. (Leguminosae) through RAPD and ISSR markers

May 2010

  Six species of Sesbania were fingerprinted using RAPD and ISSR markers. Both the markers yielded a total of 249 bands out of which 243 were polymorphic in nature indicating high degrees of genetic diversity in the genus. Cluster analysis using the combined data revealed segregation of the lone species Sesbania grandiflora from the rest of the species. High boot strap values in the...

Validation of generic status of different taxa in the sub-tribe Cassiinae (Leguminosae: Caesalpinoidae) using RAPD, ISSR and AFLP markers

May 2010

  Random amplified polymorphic DNA (RAPD), Inter simple sequence repeat (ISSR) and Amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) markers were used to verify the segregation of the genus Cassia L. (sens. lat.) into three distinct genera namely, Chamaecrista Moench.,Senna P. Mill. and Cassia L. (sens.str.).  Eighteen representatives of the three taxa were characterized...

Allelopathy as expressed by Mucuna pruriens and the possibility for weed management

April 2010

  A twelve-week study was undergone to identify selective effects of Mucuna on companion crop plant and to screen Mucuna for capacity to suppress weeds. A 10% (v/w) contamination with Nigerian Bonny light crude oil was simulated for stress tolerance assessment. Mucuna pruriens supported revegetation, soil and water conservation and also contains potentially toxic BTEX and PAHs that...

Changes of some phenolic compounds and enzyme activities on infected pearl millet caused by Sclerospora graminicola

April 2010

  Purification of low abundance enzymes for biochemical characterization is frequently labor and cost-intensive. The existence of co-expressing multigene families increases the complexity of the procedure even further as it occurs with plant peroxidases where only the most abundant species have been studied. In this paper we present an optimized purification method for Zo peroxidase, a low abundance isoenzyme...

An optimized procedure for the purification of Zo peroxidase (ZoPrx), a low abundance peroxidase from Japanese radish roots

November 2009

Purification of low abundance enzymes for biochemical characterization is frequently labor and cost-intensive. The existence of co-expressing multigene families increases the complexity of the procedure even further as it occurs with plant peroxidases where only the most abundant species have been studied. In this paper we present an optimized purification method for Zo peroxidase, a low abundance isoenzyme with unusual...

Food analytical evaluation of fruits and vegetables-based diets in relation to human carbohydrates

November 2009

Carbohydrates are the major nutrients of fruits and vegetables in human nutrition. Sucrose is one of the important parameters for the assessment of the commercial quality of the fruit, since consumers prefer the sweetest fruits. Results showed that fructose, glucose, sucrose contents were high in Cordia myxa (9.38, 12.75 and 29.09%) respectively and the starch content was high in Alocacia...

Fertility enhancing effects of aqueous stem bark extract of Lophira lanceolata in male Spargue dawley rats

October 2009

Lophira lanceolata stem bark extract is commonly used by herbalists in Sokoto state for the treatment of fertility related problems in males. Recently the sexual stimulatory effect of the plant in male rats has been reported. The present study examined the effect of 7 days oral administration of 100, 200 and 300 mg/kg body weight of the plant stem bark extract on fertility indices (Sperm motility, Sperm number and...

Effect of aqueous root extract of Treculia africana on haemoglobin glycosylation and plasma lipid per oxidation in streptozotocin-induced diabetic rabbits

October 2009

Measurement of glycosylated hemoglobin has been proposed to be a very sensitive index for glycemic control as various proteins, including hemoglobin, albumin, collagen, low-density lipoprotein cholesterol (LDL), or crystalline proteins has been reported to undergo non-enzymatic glycation in diabetes. In the present study an attempt was made to elucidate the effect of aqueous root extract ofTreculia africana on...
