J Agric Food Chem 2022 Jun 16. Epub 2022 Jun 16.

Université de Strasbourg, CNRS, IPHC UMR 7178, Chimie Analytique des Molécules BioActives et Pharmacognosie, F-67000 Strasbourg, France.

With the aim of evaluating the antigerminative activity of plant extracts, a miniaturized assay using 96-well plates (WP assay) was developed and compared to the long-established assay using Petri dishes (PD assay). The WP assay yielded results comparable to those of the PD assay using an ethanolic extract of the Himalayan balsam and lawsone as a standard. It also allowed the needed volume of the test solution to be cut by half and the number of required cress seeds to be cut by more than 1. Read More

Determination of Caspase-Like Activities in Roots by the Use of Fluorogenic Substrates.

Methods Mol Biol 2022 ;2447:119-126

Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Technology, University of Ljubljana, Ljubljana, Slovenia.

Activity of proteases in tissues can be influenced by various intrinsic and extrinsic factors. One of the activities that is regularly monitored in organisms ranging from prokaryotes to metazoans is the -aspase-like activity: activity of proteases, which cleave their substrates after the negatively charged amino acid residues, especially the aspartic acid. This activity is also known as the caspase-like activity, since the caspases, metazoan cysteine proteases, are one of the best characterized proteases with Asp-directed activities. Read More
