Disease relevance of Acer

  • Pollen extracts of Box Elder, Willow and Hickory elicited the highest allergic reactions, Oak, Birch, Sycamore, Black Walnut and Poplar more moderate reactions, while allergens from Cottonwood, Maple, Elm and White Ash were less reactive [1].

High impact information on Acer

  • The effects of glycerol on plant cell metabolism were studied with sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus L.) cells using 31P nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy [2].
  • The mobilization of stored carbohydrates (sucrose and starch) during sucrose starvation was studied with sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus) cells [3].
  • myo-Inositol-1-phosphate synthase (EC from rat testis, Acer pseudoplatanus L. cell culture and Oryza sativa L. cell culture, converted D-[5-3H]glucose 6-phosphate to myo-[2-3H]inositol 1-phosphate at rates ranging from 0.21 to 0.48 that of unlabeled substrate [4].
  • The relation between xylem vessel age and vulnerability to cavitation of sugar maple (Acer saccharum Marsh.) was quantified by measuring the pressure required to force air across bordered pit membranes separating individual xylem vessels [5].
  • There were significant rises in IgG titers by ELISA to each tree allergen administered, oak, elm, and box elder [6].

Biological context of Acer


Associations of Acer with chemical compounds

  • Excretion of laccase by sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus L.) cells. Effects of a copper deficiency [11].
  • (sugar maple) and Betula alleghaniensis Britton (yellow birch) seedlings grown in 8-l pots filled with coarse sand [12].
  • Concentrations of N and soluble phenolics, and C/N ratio in roots were similar for the two species, but aspen had slightly higher lignin and lower condensed tannins contents compared to sugar maple [7].
  • Inhibition of the vacuolar ATPase of Acer pseudoplatanus cells by vanadate [13].
  • The effect of glyphosate (N-phosphonomethyl glycine; the active ingredient of Roundup herbicide) on plant cells metabolism was analysed by 31P and 13C NMR using suspension-cultured sycamore (Acer pseudoplatanus L) cells [14].

Gene context of Acer


Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Acer

  • An evaluation of the impact of dolomitic lime [CaMg(CO3)2] on soils (five years after treatment) and sapwood chemistry (after four growing seasons) was realized for a Ca-deficient sugar maple stand at the lake Clair watershed [16].
