Allantoin: Emerging Role in Plant Abiotic Stress Tolerance - Plant Molecular Biology Reporter

In this article, Harmeet Kaur & colleagues review the emerging role of allantoin in plant abiotic stress tolerance.

Read their review published in Plant Molecular Biology Reporter.

Allantoin is an intermediate product of purine catabolic pathway that helps in nitrogen mobilization in plants. It is ubiquitously present in the plant kingdom and serves as an important N form transported from source to sink. During the recent years, allantoin has emerged as a molecule involved in....

Limonoids from the genus Trichilia and biological activities: review - Phytochemistry Reviews

Limonoids give citrus fruits their bitterness.

In this article published in Phytochemistry Reviews, Michel Souza Passos & colleagues review the limonoids of the Trichilia genus, their biological activities and biosynthesis.

Limonoids, present in the families Meliaceae and Rutaceae, provide the bitter principles in citrus and are derived from limonin (first isolated tetranortriterpenoid). These compounds are highly oxygenated triterpenoids that have lost the four carbon atoms of the side chain and they have attracted at...

Abiotic stress responses in maize: a review - Acta Physiologiae Plantarum

Ramazan Salika & John Riffat review the responses of maize to abiotic stress in the context of climate change.

Their review is published in Acta Physiologiae Plantarum.

Maize (Zea mays) is the most widely grown crop throughout the world. Its response against various environmental stress factors is quite complex and dynamic, and can be either elastic (reversible) or plastic (irreversible) in nature. Climatic change on the other hand is expected to increase the inten...

Layer-by-layer coating of hydrocolloids and mixed plant extract reduces fruit decay and improves postharvest life of nectarine fruits during cold storage - Acta Physiologiae Plantarum

Layer-by-layer coating of hydrocolloids and mixed plant extract reduces fruit decay and improves postharvest life of nectarine fruits during cold storage.

Article from A. Sowmyashree et al. published in Acta Physiologiae Plantarum.

Due to its attractive appearance, pleasing flavor, and presence of secondary metabolites, nectarine is becoming a popular fruit day-by-day in India. However, postharvest life of nectarine fruits is only 3–4 days at ambient and 15–18 days at low-temperature storage conditions. Hence, we studied t...
