Annonacin in Asimina triloba
fruit: Implication for neurotoxicity.
Molecular characterization of cultivated pawpaw (Asimina triloba
) using RAPD markers.
Ranging from eastern Oklahoma to the Atlantic, and from southern Michigan to Louisiana, the pawpaw (Asimina triloba
) is like a tropical fruit adrift in our temperate climate, with a history as beguiling as its flavor.
Our experiment was a paired design in which one set of data loggers (hereafter paired sets of data loggers) was placed under Amur honeysuckle and another set of data loggers was placed <10 m away under the native shrub spicebush (Lindera benzoin), or, at the Clifton site, a combination of spicebush and pawpaw (Asimina triloba
Pawpaw (Asimina triloba
) is a native tree with tropical aspirations.
Additional bioactive compounds and trilobacin, a novel highly cytotoxic acetogenin, from the bark of Asimina triloba
. Journal of Natural Products, 55: 347-356.
This is suggestive of ah antifeedant effect, already noted in the activity of Asimina triloba
ethanolic extracts and an annonaceous acetogenin against O.
Distinctive shrubby species are relatively infrequent: Amorpha croceolanata, Asimina triloba
, Ilex decidua, Symphoricarpos orbiculatus, and Viburnum rufidulum.
The pawpaw (Asimina triloba
) belongs to the tropical custard apple family, which includes delights such as sweetsop, soursop, cherimoya and, of course, the custard apple, which is the botanical family's namesake.
