High impact information on Liquidambar

  • To address this question, we cloned cDNAs encoding a cytochrome P450 monooxygenase (LsM88) and a caffeate O-methyltransferase (COMT) from sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua) xylem [1].
  • Clethra barbinervis and Liquidambar styraciflua transport Suc, while Catalpa speciosa transports RFOs [2].
  • F5H from Arabidopsis and a similar enzyme from sweetgum (Liquidamber styraciflua) has recently been shown to have coniferaldehyde hydroxylase activity instead of F5H activity [3].
  • The enzyme hydrolyzed sweetgum xylan, generating products with a 4-O-methyl-glucuronic acid-substituted xylose residue one position from the nonreducing terminus of the oligoxyloside product [4].
  • On several measurement dates for sweetgum in 2001 and for sycamore in both years, epsilon was positively correlated with gas exchange variables (Asat, gs, Ci) (r ranged from 0.600 to 0.857) [5].

Associations of Liquidambar with chemical compounds

  • In sweetgum, the mycorrhizal effect on NO3- and NH4+ uptake capacity depended on growth [C02] [6].
  • Nitrogen uptake, distribution, turnover, and efficiency of use in a CO2-enriched sweetgum forest [7].
  • In a search for inhibitory components from natural products against NFAT transcription factor, this study investigated the ethyl acetate extract of the fruits of Liquidambar formosana [8].

Gene context of Liquidambar

  • In 1999, there was a significant interaction between CO(2) and species such that winged elm ( Ulmus alata) showed lower herbivory in elevated CO(2) plots, whereas red maple (Acer rubra) and sweetgum (Liquidambar styraciflua) did not [9].
  • Oleanane triterpenoids with inhibitory activity against NFAT transcription factor from Liquidambar formosana [8].
