    ..Moreover, phytochemical analysis revealed polyphenols and flavonoids. Taken together, these results support traditional use of B.orthobotrys as potent anti-arthritic agent that may be proposed for rheumatoid arthritis treatment. ..
  4. Vardhan P, Shukla L. Gamma irradiation of medicinally important plants and the enhancement of secondary metabolite production. Int J Radiat Biol. 2017;93:967-979 pubmed publisher
    ..Identification of the optimum dose is the important step in the large-scale production of secondary metabolites at industrial level. ..

    ..These data are important for future functional studies of citrus AOX genes and/or proteins, as well as for biotechnological approaches leading to AOX inhibition using UQ homologs. ..
  7. Liu J, Zhang X, Mo L, Yao S, Wang Y. Decapitation improves the efficiency of Cd phytoextraction by Celosia argentea Linn. Chemosphere. 2017;181:382-389 pubmed publisher
    ..Results suggested that decapitation is a novel and convenient method to improve the phytoextraction efficiency of C. argentea in Cd contaminated soils. ..

    ..On the other hand, the dominant B1 allele acted as a suppressor of the hooded phenotype. These three awning inhibitors largely contribute to the genetic variation in awn length and shape of common wheat. ..
