Chemical Ecology and Volatile Terpenes Biosynthesis of Arnicas-da-Serra from Brazil
(Brazilian Chemical Soc, 2016-01-01)
Lychnophora (Vernonieae: Asteraceae) is a genus endemic to campos rupestres, which are fragile Habitats from Brazilian Savanas, the Cerrado. Leaves extracts of Lychnophora ericoides (Arnica-da-serra) are commonly used as ...
Allelopathic potential of Tagetes minuta terpenes by a chemical, anatomical and phytotoxic approach
The dominant terpenes in the essential oils of the leaves and reproductive structures of Tagetes minuta L. (Asteraceae) were studied throughout its life cycle in a natural population. The anatomy of the secretory cavities ...
A genomic approach to characterization of the Citrus terpene synthase gene family
(Sociedade Brasileira de Genética, 2007)
Volatile emissions of scented Alstroemeria genotypes are dominated by terpenes, and a myrcene synthase gene is highly expressed in scented Alstroemeria flowers
Native to South America, Alstroemeria flowers are known for their colourful tepals, and Alstroemeria hybrids are an important cut flower. However, in common with many commercial cut flowers, virtually all the commercial ...
Recent advances in antitubercular natural products
(European Journal of Medicinal Chemistry, 2012-09-01)
The chemical reactivity of some terpenes investigated by alumina catalyzed epoxidation with hydrogen peroxide and by DFT calculations
(Elsevier Science BvAmsterdamHolanda, 2006)
Allium sativum produces terpenes with fungistatic properties in response to infection with Sclerotium cepivorum
This study investigated terpene biosynthesis in different tissues (root, protobulb, leaf sheath and blade) of in vitro-grown garlic plants either infected or not (control) with Sclerotium cepivorum, the causative agent of ...
Antimicrobial combined action of terpenes against the food-borne microorganisms Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus cereus
The aims of this work were to study the antimicrobial activity of nine monoterpenes and the synergistic or antagonistic associations between them, and to relate water solubility, H-bonding and pKa values with antimicrobial ...
