High impact information on Echinochloa

  • Enolase (2-phospho-D-glycerate hydrolase, EC has been identified as an anaerobic stress protein in Echinochloa oryzoides based on the homology of its internal amino acid sequence with those of enolases from other organisms, by immunological reactivity, and induction of catalytic activity during anaerobic stress [1].
  • Cyhalofop-butyl (CB), 2-[4-(4-cyano-2-fluorophenoxy)phenoxy]propanoic acid, butyl ester (R), is an aryloxyphenoxypropionate (AOPP) herbicide for postemergence use in rice to control grasses, mainly Echinochloa spp [2].
  • Marine organism derived extracts, previously identified as containing compounds that inhibited the C4 acid cycle enzyme pyruvate P(i) dikinase (PPDK), were assessed for their ability to exhibit an effect on the C4 plants Digitaria ciliaris and Echinochloa crus-galli [3].
  • Similarly, there were no differences in tolerance of p-hydroxybenzoic acid between two Echinochloa weed species adapted to either anaerobic or aerobic growth conditions [4].
  • Among them, lecanorin (1), methyl-beta-orcinol carboxylate, methyl orsellinate, orcinol, and methyl haematommate (3) caused significant inhibition of the radicle growth and germination of seedlings of Amaranthus hypochondriacus and Echinochloa crusgalli [5].

Associations of Echinochloa with chemical compounds


Gene context of Echinochloa

  • In particular, I strongly inhibited the growth of the roots of Lactuca sativa L. var. longifolia LAM and Echinochloa utilis OHWI et YABUNO, even at the low concentration of 5.0 x 10(-3) M [11].
