High impact information on Shallots


Biological context of Shallots

  • cDNA libraries constructed from poly(A)-rich RNA isolated from Allium sativum (garlic), Allium cepa (onion) and Allium ascalonicum (shallot) were screened for cDNA clones encoding the alliinase using colony hybridization [5].

Anatomical context of Shallots


Associations of Shallots with chemical compounds


Gene context of Shallots

  • MMAA was detected in all soils and some plant parts especially shallots at low levels, whereas DMAA was found only in one soil sample and in hot pepper leaves [11].
  • CONCLUSIONS: Organic solvent and aqueous extracts of garlic and shallot bulbs had significant antioxidant potential, as measured by decreases in free radicals and an ability to inhibit lipid oxidation [10].
  • All tested solutions in concentrations of 0.075 and 0.1 mol x dm(-3) caused significant inhibition of shallot root growth [12].
