Disease relevance of Impatiens


High impact information on Impatiens

  • A novel family of small cysteine-rich antimicrobial peptides from seed of Impatiens balsamina is derived from a single precursor protein [3].
  • Here we describe Impatiens homologues of LFY, TFL1 and AG (IbLFY, IbTFL1 and IbAG) that are highly conserved at a sequence level and demonstrate homologous functions when expressed ectopically in transgenic Arabidopsis [4].
  • Pollen of Impatiens sultanii Hook F. germinates and forms tubes rapidly at 25 degrees C in a simple medium containing 111.0 ppm CaCl2, 13.6 ppm KH2PO4, and 1000 ppm boric acid [5].
  • Evidence is also presented which indicates that the actions of barbituric acid and the oxybarbiturates barbital, amytal, and seconal on Impatiens holstii pollen germination behaviour correlate well with certain aspects of the pharmacological literature concerning the actions of these organic compounds on the central nervous system (CNS) [6].
  • Evidence is presented which demonstrates that the normal sequence of events which make up the normal germination pattern of Impatiens holstii pollen grains can be separated from each other by varying the concentrations of the oxybarbiturates amytal and seconal used [6].

Biological context of Impatiens


Anatomical context of Impatiens

  • We applied the test to human leukocytes and, with major improvements, to plant cells (Allium cepa roots and epigean tissues of Impatiens balsamina) [8].

Associations of Impatiens with chemical compounds

  • Baccharane glycosides from seeds of Impatiens balsamina [9].
  • In a paired-choice arena, untreated control roots were damaged significantly more by B. impatiens larvae than MJ-induced roots that contained 3-fold greater 20E levels [10].
  • Structure determination of a kaempferol 3-rhamnosyldiglucoside from Impatiens balsamina [11].
  • Extension growth of Impatiens glandulifera at low irradiance: importance of nitrate and potassium accumulation [12].
  • Dinaphthofuran-7,12-dione derivatives named balsaminones A (1) and B (2) were isolated from the pericarp of Impatiens balsamina L. together with the known compound 2-methoxy-1,4-naphthoquinone (3) [13].
