Differential regulation of triterpene biosynthesis induced by an early failure in cuticle formation in apple.

Hortic Res 2021 Apr 1;8(1):75. Epub 2021 Apr 1.

The New Zealand Institute for Plant and Food Research, Auckland, New Zealand.

Waxy apple cuticles predominantly accumulate ursane-type triterpenes, but the profile shifts with the induction of skin russeting towards lupane-type triterpenes. We previously characterised several key enzymes in the ursane-type and lupane-type triterpene pathways, but this switch in triterpene metabolism associated with loss of cuticle integrity is not fully understood. To analyse the relationship between triterpene biosynthesis and russeting, we used microscopy, RNA-sequencing and metabolite profiling during apple fruit development. Read More

Broad-spectrum pharmacological activity of Australian propolis and metabolomic-driven identification of marker metabolites of propolis samples from three continents.

Food Funct 2021 Mar 8;12(6):2498-2519. Epub 2021 Mar 8.

NICM Health Research Institute, Western Sydney University, Penrith, NSW, Australia.

Propolis is a by-product of honeybee farming known for its broad therapeutic benefits around the world and is extensively used in the health food and beverage industry. Despite Australia being one of the world's megadiverse countries with rich flora and fauna, Australian propolis samples have not been explored adequately with most in vitro and in vivo studies centred on their Brazilian and Chinese counterparts. In view of this, our study was designed to investigate the chemical composition and anti-proliferative, antibacterial, antifungal, anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of Australian propolis (AP-1) extract to draw a comparison with Brazilian (BP-1) and Chinese propolis (CP-1) extracts.

I investigated the causative agents of licorice-induced pseudoaldosteronism, which is a frequent side effect of Japanese traditional Kampo medicines. Glycyrrhizin (GL), the main ingredient of licorice, is absorbed after being metabolized to glycyrrhetinic acid (GA) by intestinal bacteria, and then metabolized in liver to 3-monoglucuronyl-glycyrrhetinic acid (3MGA). In normal condition, 3MGA is excreted into bile via a multidrug resistance-related protein (Mrp) 2, therefore, 3MGA does not appear in blood circulation. Read More
