- Antioxidant activity of extracts, condensed tannin fractions, and pure flavonoids from Phaseolus vulgaris L. seed coat color genotypesClifford W Beninger
Agricultural Research Service, U S Department of Agriculture, Plant and Soil Science Building, Michigan State University, East Lansing, Michigan 48824, USA
J Agric Food Chem 51:7879-83. 2003..The activity of kaempferol 3-O-glucoside (5) was not different from that of the Fe(2+) control. These findings suggest that variously colored dry beans may be an important source of dietary antioxidants...
- Changes in polyphenols of the seed coat during the after-darkening process in pinto beans (Phaseolus vulgaris L.)Clifford W Beninger
Department of Plant Sciences, University of Saskatchewan, Saskatoon, SK, Canada S7N 5A8
J Agric Food Chem 53:7777-82. 2005..A catechin-kaempferol adduct was tentatively identified in both lines by LC-MS/MS, and the concentration increased in the seed coats after aging...
- The distribution of two major Iridoids in different organs of Antirrhinum majus L. at selected stages of developmentClifford W Beninger
Department of Plant Agriculture, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, N1G 2W1, Canada
J Chem Ecol 33:731-47. 2007..However, only (14)C-antirrhinoside was recovered in the subtending petiole tissue, consistent with the suggestion that it is a phloem mobile compound...
- The iridoid glucoside, antirrhinoside, from Antirrhinum majus L. has differential effects on two generalist insect herbivoresClifford W Beninger
Department of Plant Agriculture, University of Guelph, Guelph, ON, Canada N1G 2W1
J Chem Ecol 34:591-600. 2008..It is likely that antirrhinoside functions as defense against herbivory for one generalist insect herbivore but also, at low concentrations, enhances the growth of another...
- A comparison of antirrhinoside distribution in the organs of two related Plantaginaceae species with different reproductive strategiesClifford W Beninger
Department of Plant Agriculture, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario N1G 2W1, Canada
J Chem Ecol 35:1363-72. 2009..majus. While these findings are consistent with Optimal Defense Theory (ODT) further work on the distribution of antirrhinoside and the effect of insect herbivory on plant fitness in other related species is needed...

Department of Environmental Biology, University of Guelph, Guelph, Ontario, Canada N1G 2W1
J Chem Ecol 30:589-606. 2004..Furthermore, when incorporated separately into artificial diet these compounds, at 10 to 1000 ppm, enhanced or reduced growth of the cabbage looper (Trichoplusia ni) and gypsy moth (Lymantria dispar L.)...
