High impact information on Pinaceae


Associations of Pinaceae with chemical compounds

  • The polyprenol pattern in Pinaceae family differs from species to species, thus it may serve as chemotaxonomic criterion within this systematic group [6].
  • (Pinaceae) was evaluated for potential to inhibit hydroxyl radicals, inhibit total reactive oxygen species generation in kidney homogenates using 2',7'-dichlorodihydro fluorescein diacetate (DCHF-DA) and scavenge authentic peroxynitrites [7].
  • Among trees, the highest pollen concentrations were recorded for Betula, Pinaceae and Alnus; the lowest for Ulmus, Fagus and Corylus [8].
