Somatic Embryogenesis in Peach-Palm (Bactris gasipaes) Using Different Explant Sources
Peach palm (Bactris gasipaes Kunth) is a member of the family Arecaceae and is a multipurpose but underutilized species. Nowadays, fruit production for subsistence and local markets, and heart-of-palm production for local, ...
Deposition Form and Bioaccessibility of Keto-carotenoids from Mamey Sapote (Pouteria sapota), Red Bell Pepper (Capsicum annuum), and Sockeye Salmon (Oncorhynchus nerka) Filet
The ultrastructure and carotenoid-bearing structures of mamey sapote (Pouteria sapota) chromoplasts were elucidated using light and transmission electron microscopy and compared to carotenoid deposition forms in red bell ...
Carotenoids, carotenoid esters, and anthocyanins of yellow-, orange-, and red-peeled cashew apples (Anacardium occidentale L.)
Pigment profiles of yellow-, orange-, and red-peeled cashew (Anacardium occidentale L.) apples were investigated. Among 15 identified carotenoids and carotenoid esters, b-carotene, and b-cryptoxanthin palmitate were the ...
Occurrence and characterisation of calcium oxalate crystals in stems and fruits of Hylocereus costaricensis and Selenicereus megalanthus (Cactaceae: Hylocereeae)
Detailed description about occurrence of calcium oxalate (CaOx) crystals in the edible vine cactus species Hylocereus costaricensis and Selenicereus megalanthus is scarce. Therefore, we evaluated and characterized the ...
Factores que influyen en la embriogénesis somática in vitro de palmas (Arecaceae)
Factors affecting in vitro somatic embryogenesis of palms (Arecaceae)
La embriogénesis somática (ES) es una vía de desarrollo in vitro que presenta una serie de ventajas sobre otras técnicas utilizadas para la regeneración de palmas. Esta técnica tiene gran potencial para superar las ...
Somatic embryogenesis and plant regeneration in peach palm (Bactris gasipaes Kunth)
Peach palm (Bactris gasipaes Kunth) is a member of the family Arecaceae and is the only palm species with fully domesticated populations in the Neotropics. It is a multi-purpose but underutilized species. Today, fruit ...
In vitro propagation of purple pitahaya (Hylocereus costaricensis [F.A.C. Weber] Britton & Rose) cv. Cebra
Limitations to large-scale propagation of purple pitahaya (Hylocereus costaricensis [F.A.C. Weber] Britton & Rose), a potential source of betalains for the food industry, can be overcome through utilization of in vitro ...
Response of Endogenous Hormone Concentrations to Two Floral Inductive Treatments, viz. KNO3 and PBZ, in Mango cv. ‘Tommy Atkins’ Growing Under Tropical Conditions
Floral induction (FI) has been intensively studied in mango, more under sub-tropical than under tropical environments. Decreases in temperature below 20 °C, which is common in sub-tropical regions but seldom occurs in many ...
Effect of macronutrients and sucrose concentration on in vitro growth of Drosera capensis L. (Droseraceae) plants, and evaluation of six substrates for acclimatization
The effect of two concentrations of the Murashige and Skoog macronutrients (full and half strength), in combination with three concentrations of sucrose (1.5, 3.0 and 4.5% w/v), was evaluated on the in vitro growth of ...
