Abstract Seasonal temperature change contributes to differential fiber quality in bast fiber crops such as ramie, flax, etc. However, the knowledge of the regulatory role of temperature change in fiber development at the RNA level is limited. Here, we used transcriptome sequencing to explore how ambient temperature affects the quality of ramie fiber with different developmental degrees under simulated temperature conditions for different harvest seasons. We obtained 73 335 and 66 195 unigenes fr...
Abstract Counterfeiting and adulteration have seriously affects the products quality. Saffron is the world’s most expensive medicinal plant, an excellent dye, and a high-grade spice. To reduce costs, it is often adulterated with dyed stamens of Nelumbo nucifera Gaertn. (lotus stamens) and stigmas of Zea mays L. (corn stigmas), which have a similar appearance to saffron. Therefore, the aim of this study was to identify and quantify these two adulterants in saffron using near-infrared (NIR) spectr...

Abstract Revealing the potential geographical distribution and regions that yield maximum harvest of products will be of great significance for evaluation and utilization of crops in medicinal industry. Diabetes has become a global health problem that threatens almost all nations in the world. The traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) has long been used for the treatment of diabetes in history. Specifically, four medicinal plants including huangqi (Astragalus membranaceus [Fisch.] Bunge.), huanglia...

Abstract Pinus pinaster wood (PPW) was fractionated by two different routes: (1) a two-steps system by soda ethanol organosolv (SEOS) followed by lignin precipitation (LP) and (2) a three-steps procedure encompassing autohydrolysis (AH) followed by SEOS and LP. In the two-steps route, the effect of ethanol mass fraction in the cooking liquor (15-55 wt.%) on pulps and lignins purities was studied. In the three-steps system, the effects of AH temperature (160-180 °C) and reaction time (30 and 60 m...

Abstract Quercetin and kaempferol show cardioprotective potential. Our preliminary results have demonstrated that the crude extract, phenolic fraction and different flavonoids (including quercetin and kaempferol derivatives) isolated from aerial parts of lentil (Lens culinaris Medik.) have anticoagulant properties and antioxidant activity in human plasma. The objective was to investigate anti-platelet properties of four quercetin derivatives (compound 1 (quercetin 3-O-β- d -glucopyranosyl-(1→2)-...

Abstract One of the challenging tasks for the researchers is to identify alternative renewable energy feedstocks which can be used as a substitute for fossil fuel to meet the increasing demand for energy, reduce the depletion of fossil fuel reserves and eliminate the increasing concerns of environmental impact. The 2nd generation poppy (Papaver somniferum) seed oil (PSO) can be considered as one of the feedstocks which would be low cost and does not compete with food crops for biodiesel producti...

Abstract Lead (Pb) is one of the most hazardous substances contaminating water source and agricultural lands, and Miscanthus is a leading bioenergy crop providing enormous lignocellulose residues convertible for bioethanol and biochemicals. Using two distinct Miscanthus straws, this study compared various chemical pretreatments to obtain relatively high cellulosic ethanol production. All remained solid wastes were then employed for Pb adsorption under different incubation conditions (pH, initial...

Abstract The conversion of crop wastes into fermentable sugars and other chemicals mediated by deep eutectic solvents (DESs) has attracted significant attention. In this work, lactic acid, the constituents of DES, was proved to be a harmful inhibitor for cellulase during the conversion of rice straw to fermentable sugars. Nevertheless, the study here also demonstrated that depending on conditions, lactic acidic–choline chloride (LC) can be utilized for pretreatment and saccharification in a one-...

Abstract The effect of green tea polysaccharide conjugate (gTPC) on the growth of E. coli was evaluated. gTPC has optimal antibacterial concentrations for E. coli DH5α (4.00 mg/mL) and 25,922 (1.00 mg/mL), with the antibacterial rates of 55.75 % and 50.65 % respectively. The results of scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscope (TEM) indicated that gTPC-treated E. coli cells showed obvious morphological changes, part of the cell wall became blurred, and the leakage o...

Abstract There are limited studies available regarding the characteristics of Actinostemma lobatum Maxim. kernels. In the present study, the kernels were analyzed for their nutritional composition, especially their oil characteristics. Expressed on the dry weight basis, the kernel oil accounted for 47 % of the kernel, whereas the content of protein represented 26 %. The major unsaturated fatty acids of the kernel oils were linoleic acid and oleic acid (43 %–44 % and 37 %–38 %, respectively). The...
