High impact information on Mimosa


Associations of Mimosa with chemical compounds


Gene context of Mimosa

  • Bacterial cultures were enriched with individual polyphenols (tannins Tara, Quebracho, or Mimosa) or with an undefined mixture of tannins present in the tannery effluent as carbon source [10].
  • Actin-like protein from Mimosa pudica L [11].
  • Of these crops, mimosa and sericea had the highest antioxidant potential and were selected for further study [12].
