Disease relevance of Beta vulgaris


High impact information on Beta vulgaris


Biological context of Beta vulgaris

  • Free-radical scavenging, reducing, and phase II enzyme-inducing activities of aqueous and 5% aqueous ethanol extracts of freeze-dried root tissue of four beet (Beta vulgaris L.) strains (red, white, orange, and high-pigment (red) phenotypes) were determined [9].
  • Greenhouse experiments using sudax [Sorghum vulgare (L.) Moench] and Swiss chard [Beta vulgaris (L.) Koch] were carried out to evaluate the effects of plant growth on soil Pb bioavailability to humans after addition of P and other amendments, and the effects of these treatments on Pb, Cd, and Zn phytoavailability in three metal-contaminated soils [10].
  • We have isolated the nad5 gene from the N-cytoplasm of Beta vulgaris, by heterologous hybridization with a nad5 probe from Chlamydomonas reinhardtii, and have determined the DNA sequence [11].
  • Seasonal variation of the radiocaesium transfer soil-to-Swiss chard (Beta vulgaris var. cicla L.) in allophanic soils from the Lake Region, Chile [12].
