High impact information on Tilia

  • Honeybees encounter nicotine at trace concentrations (between 0.1 and 5 ppm) in floral nectar of a few Nicotiana spp. and in Tilia cordata [1].
  • Several strains originating from Quercus, Acer and Tilia showed diverging ITS sequences, indicating that the M. punctiformis complex may comprise more than a single phylogenetic species, but this could not be confirmed by the analysis of our dataset [2].
  • (1BO and 43BO) produce mycorrhizas with Tilia platyphyllos Scop. with a different degree of efficiency [3].
  • Hepatoprotective principles from the flowers of Tilia argentea (linden): structure requirements of tiliroside and mechanisms of action [4].
  • The methanolic extract from the flowers of Tilia argentea (linden) was found to show a hepatoprotective effect against D-galactosamine (D-GalN)/lipopolysaccharide (LPS)-induced liver injury in mice [4].

Associations of Tilia with chemical compounds

  • They were evaluated in ectomycorrhizal development using the ergosterol assay and the internal transcribed spacer-5.8S ribosomal DNA from Tilia platyphyllos and Tuber borchii as molecular probes respectively [5].
  • The antioxidant activity of the water extract of Tilia argentea Desf ex DC was determined by the thiocyanate method [6].
  • In this study extracts of inflorescences from Tilia tomentosa Moench, one of the species found in the market, were purified using a benzodiazepine (BZD) binding assay to detect BZD receptor ligands in the different fractions [7].
  • The results show that anise, mint, caraway, cumin, tilia, liquorice, arranged in decreasing order of their effect, promoted the absorption of iron [8].
  • We tested blue, green, red, white, and yellow for thrips' response to visual stimuli, and anisaldehyde, ethyl nicotinate, and polar and nonpolar extracts of basswood buds or leaves for thrips' response to olfactory stimuli over a 2-yr period [9].

Analytical, diagnostic and therapeutic context of Tilia

  • Furthermore, we cloned a nitrate reductase cDNA (tpnr1) from Tilia platyphyllos to set up a quantitative real-time PCR assay that would allow us to determine the fungal contribution to nitrate assimilation in ectomycorrhizal tissue [10].
