High impact information on Begoniaceae

  • Endemic species on the island of São Tomé such as Begonia baccata, Begonia molleri, and Begonia subalpestris appear to be palaeoendemics [1].
  • Mice were immunized with a live vaccine, through intraperitoneal injection of PRV strain Begonia (an attenuated vaccine strain deleted for gE and thymidine kinase genes) at 4 weeks before challenge [2].
  • Three new compounds: begonanline (1). nantoamide (2). and methyl (S)-glycerate (3). as well as forty-four known compounds have been isolated and characterized from the rhizomes of Begonia nantoensis [3].
  • Antioxidant metabolism during acclimation of Begonia x erythrophylla to high light levels [4].
  • In 2003 a field trial was conducted to evaluate control of livid amaranth in tuberous begonia with isoxaben, simazin [5].

Associations of Begoniaceae with chemical compounds


Gene context of Begoniaceae

  • This study examined the influence of high light levels on antioxidant metabolism and the photosynthetic properties of Begonia x erythrophylla leaves [4].
