Disease relevance of Rhizophoraceae


High impact information on Rhizophoraceae

  • The steady-state level of 6-phosphofructo-2-kinase/fructose-2,6-bisphosphate 2-phosphatase (F6P2K/F26BPase) transcript has been found to be raised in the mangrove Bruguiera gymnorrhiza treated with 500 mM NaCl for 6 h [2].
  • Bioactive dammarane triterpenes from the mangrove plant Bruguiera gymnorrhiza [3].
  • Bioassay-directed fractionation of ethanol extracts of the roots and leaves of the plant Cassipourea madagascariensis resulted in the isolation of the two new terpenoids cassipourol (1) and cassipouryl acetate (2) in addition to the three known compounds, 3beta,30-dihydroxylup-20(29)-ene (3), 30-hydroxylup-20(29)-en-3-one (4), and combretol (5) [4].
  • A new triterpenoid ester from the fruits of Bruguiera parviflora [5].
  • Seedlings of four mangrove species, including two salt-excreting species (A. marina and Aegiceras corniculatum) and two salt-excluding species (Rhizophora stylosa and Ceriops australis) were treated with a range of concentrations of the herbicides diuron, ametryn and atrazine [6].

Associations of Rhizophoraceae with chemical compounds

  • Chemical examination of the ethyl acetate solubles of the CH(3)OH:CH(2)Cl(2) (1:1) extract of the roots of Ceriops decandra collected from Kauvery estuary resulted in the isolation of four new diterpenoids, ceriopsins A-D (1-4) [7].
  • Vegetated (with Kandelia candel seedlings) and non-vegetated mangrove microcosms were employed to remove pyrene from contaminated sediments, and the effects of adding 6.7% humic acid (HA) on such removal were investigated [8].
  • Occurrence of gerrardine in Cassipourea guianensis [9].
  • Methylated A-type proanthocyanidins and related metabolites from Cassipourea gummiflua [10].
  • A new lupane caffeoyl ester (1), 3-(Z)-caffeoyllupeol, together with five known triterpenoids, lupeol caffeate (2), 3-(Z)-coumaroyllupeol (3), dioslupecin A (4), lupeol (5), and lupenone (6), were isolated from the fruits of Bruguiera parviflora [5].

Gene context of Rhizophoraceae

  • Antioxidant activity of Rhizophora mangle bark [11].
  • The radical modulation activity of hot water and alkaline extracts from leaf of Ceriops decandra, a mangrove plant, was investigated using ESR spectroscopy [12].
