The bundles of the conductive tissue are lined and protected by sheath cells red arrows in Figs 6, 8. Obviously the callus cells produce some anti-fungal agents inhibiting yeast colony expansion. Oxford University Press is a department of the University of Oxford. Histochemical investigation of leaves.

Histochemical investigations revealed that viscosq substance groups were localized in the leaf. Sign In or Create an Account. They can clearly be demonstrated in both light Figs 6, 8 and electron micrographs Figs 12, The negative response to DMB staining for phenolic tannin precursors, in both leaves and calluses, although tannins are present in large amounts as vacuolar inclusions in most leaf cells, indicates that the chemical constituents of the condensed tannins are produced prematurely in the leaf cells and condensation proceeds promptly visvosa an early stage of leaf development.

Developmental evidence helps resolve the evolutionary origins of anther appendages in Globba Zingiberaceae.

Phenolics are abundant mainly in palisade cells. In vitro studies of adventitious shoot formation in Pinus conforta.

This page was last edited on 22 Marchat Histochemical analyses of laticifers and glandular trichomes in Cannabis sativa. Even though these reactions could not be localized in certain cellular components of callus cells, it is important that non-differentiated cells retained their ability to synthesize and accumulate secondary metabolites of pharmaceutical value terpenes, steroids, alkaloids.


Ruderal ciscosa of Dittrichia viscosa growing on the railway-side gravel next to Petah Tikva – Sgula railway station, Israel. The fact that almost all the major compound groups detected on the TLC of the leaf extracts can also be detected in the callus extract and the retention of the cell’s ability to produce secondary metabolites by the second generation of calluses are encouraging factors for the possible industrial production of active compounds from mass-tissue cultures.

Localization of cytotoxic hydroperoxyeudesmanolides in Artemisia umbelliformis. Abstract Leaves of Inula viscosa have been used in medicine from ancient times. Some of the compounds investigated in the fresh leaf and all the compounds of callus extracts of Inula viscosa using GC-MS.

A generalization of the retention index viscoda including linear temperature programmed gas—liquid partition chromatography. Archived from the original xls on One species among these is Inula viscosa L. Leaf structural peculiarities in Sarcopoterium spinosum a seasonally dimorphic subshrub.

An interesting observation on developed callus masses is related to the well-known phenomenon of the clear zone appearing round the colonies of antibiotic-producing bacteria or fungi when they are approached by expanding colonies of other susceptible micro-organisms. Scale bar in Fig.

Effects of Inula viscosa leaf extracts on abortion and implantation in rats. Histochemistry and identification of condensed tannin precursors in root of cotton seedlings. Cytochemistry and electron microscopy. It is important as food for the caterpillars of certain butterflies and moths, like Iolana iolas.


Crystals are common blue arrows in Fig.

Little-differentiated callus cells are synthetically active and produce, as do its leaf cells, numerous polar compounds that could be of pharmaceutical interest. For these reasons, this species is of major interest for many pharmaceutical industries and a detailed study of its secreting structures is necessary.

Ten days later, calluses appeared. Illuminating the systematics of the Spiranthes sinensis species complex Orchidaceae: It contains an essential oil [7] and has been used in traditional medicine since ancient times, especially in the Levantas an astringent. Dittrichia viscosaalso known as false yellowhead[2] woody fleabane[3] sticky fleabane and yellow fleabaneis a flowering plant in the daisy family. Wikimedia Commons has media related to Dittrichia viscosa.

Utetheisa pulchella on Dittrichia viscosa. Genetics and biochemistry of secondary metabolites in plants: Electron micrographs of cells from the leaf of Inula viscosa. Application of GC-MS to callus extracts traced only hydrocarbons and compounds of lipid nature, all of them of minor importance, whereas the volatile compounds present in the leaf extracts were not detected. It is considered an invasive species in Australia.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. Originally, the species was found mainly in dry riverbeds and abandoned fields up to a m feet elevation. All palisade-parenchyma cells possess vacuolar inclusions.
