Antidiabetic and antioxidant properties of alkaloids from Catharanthus
roseus (L.) G.
Flowering vinca (Catharanthus
roseus) grows about a foot tall and blooms in pink, purple, magenta, red, white and bicolors over glossy green foliage.
roseus (Apocynaceae) naturally infected with diverse phytoplasmas in Costa Rica
The researchers suspect something similar occurs in the synthesis of anti-cancer drugs vincristine and vinblastine from Madagascan periwinkle, Catharanthus
roseus, and elsewhere in olive and snapdragon plants.
Periwinkle flower (Catharanthus
rosea or Vinca rosea) is added as an anti-inflammatory.
Un valioso ejemplo de la produccion de un farmaco producido en biorreactor, es el que se obtiene a partir de raices de Catharanthus
roseus, las cuales producen ajmalicina, utilizada en el tratamiento de trastornos circulatorios.
Paclobutrazol enhances photosynthesis and ajmalicine production in Catharanthus
Many anticancer drugs are plant-based: taxol, first isolated from Pacific yew, saves at least 30,000 lives per year in the United States; vincristine and vinblastine are derived from the alkaloids of periwinkle (Catharanthus
roseus), known locally as tsitsirika.
Alterations in osmoregulations, antioxidant enzymes and indole alkaloid levels in Catharanthus
roseus exposed to water deficit.
was reported in Catharanthus
roseus, Terminalia morobensis, Mangifera indica (60, 61, 62).
(2011) where it was shown that SA treatment ameliorated the adverse effects of salt stress in terms of growth parameters in Catharanthus
In Brazil, however, ornamental plants are irrigated with good-quality water and information on their tolerance to salinity, and particularly 'Boa noite' (Catharanthus
roseus), is limited and sporadic.
