A simple HPLC-fluorescence detection of nitric oxide in cultivated plant cells by in situ derivatization with 2,3-diaminonaphthalene. (1/32)

An HPLC method with fluorescence detection for the determination of nitric oxide (NO) in cultivated plant cells (Agave pacifica, Agavaceae) was developed. NO was derivatized in situ with 2,3-diaminonaphthalene (DAN) as a labeling reagent and converted to 1(H)-naphthotriazole. The maximum peak height of the derivative was observed by incubation for 3 h at 25 degrees C with 0.2 mM DAN. Excess reagent in cells was removed by washing 3 times with 5 ml of water. The calibration curve for authentic standard of DAN-NO spiked to cultivated plant cells showed a good linearity (r = 0.995) in the range of 5.0 to 50 pmol/g cell. The detection limit at a signal-to-noise ratio of 3 was 3.4 pmol/g cells. The proposed method was successfully applied to the monitoring of NO concentration with cell growth. The effect of thermal treatment on the concentration of NO in plant cells was also examined. The concentration of NO in cells treated at 5 degrees C for 1 h was significantly higher than that treated at 25 degrees C and 35 degrees C for 1 h (n = 3, p < 0.05).  (+info)

Aberrant meiotic behavior in Agave tequilana Weber var. azul. (2/32)

BACKGROUND: Agave tequilana Weber var. azul, is the only one variety permitted by federal law in Mexico to be used for tequila production which is the most popular contemporary alcoholic beverage made from agave and recognized worldwide. Despite the economic, genetic, and ornamental value of the plant, it has not been subjected to detailed cytogenetic research, which could lead to a better understanding of its reproduction for future genetic improvement. The objective of this work was to study the meiotic behavior in pollen mother cells and its implications on the pollen viability in Agave tequilana Weber var. azul. RESULTS: The analysis of Pollen Mother Cells in anaphase I (A-I) showed 82.56% of cells with a normal anaphase and, 17.44% with an irregular anaphase. In which 5.28% corresponded to cells with side arm bridges (SAB); 3.68% cells with one bridge and one fragment; 2.58% of irregular anaphase showed cells with one or two lagging chromosomes and 2.95% showed one acentric fragment; cells with two bridges and cells with two bridges and one acentric fragment were observed in frequencies of 1.60% and 1.35% respectively. In anaphase II some cells showed bridges and fragments too. Aberrant A-I cells had many shrunken or empty pollen grains (42.00%) and 58.00 % viable pollen. CONCLUSION: The observed meiotic irregularities suggest that structural chromosome aberrations have occurred, such as heterozygous inversions, sister chromatid exchanges, deletions and duplications which in turn are reflected in a low pollen viability.  (+info)

Initial net CO2 uptake responses and root growth for a CAM community placed in a closed environment. (3/32)

To help understand carbon balance between shoots and developing roots, 41 bare-root crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) plants native to the Sonoran Desert were studied in a glass-panelled sealable room at day/night air temperatures of 25/15 degrees C. Net CO(2) uptake by the community of Agave schottii, Carnegia gigantea, Cylindropuntia versicolor, Ferocactus wislizenii and Opuntia engelmannii occurred 3 weeks after watering. At 4 weeks, the net CO(2) uptake rate measured for south-east-facing younger parts of the shoots averaged 1.94 micro mol m(-2) s(-1) at night, considerably higher than the community-level nocturnal net CO(2) uptake averaged over the total shoot surface, primarily reflecting the influences of surface orientation on radiation interception (predicted net CO(2) uptake is twice as high for south-east-facing surfaces compared with all compass directions). Estimated growth plus maintenance respiration of the roots averaged 0.10 micro mol m(-2) s(-1) over the 13-week period, when the community had a net carbon gain from the atmosphere of 4 mol C while the structural C incorporated into the roots was 23 mol. Thus, these five CAM species diverted all net C uptake over the 13-week period plus some existing shoot C to newly developing roots. Only after sufficient roots develop to support shoot water and nutrient requirements will the plant community have net above-ground biomass gains.  (+info)

Genetic differentiation in the Agave deserti (Agavaceae) complex of the Sonoran desert. (4/32)

The Agave deserti complex, comprising A. deserti, A. cerulata and A. subsimplex, represents a group of species and subspecies with a near allopatric distribution and clear differences in morphology. Genetic differentiation and taxonomic status with respect to spatial distribution of 14 populations of the complex were analyzed in an effort to understand the evolution and speciation process within the genus. Allelic frequencies, levels of genetic variation, expected heterozygosity (H(S)), proportion of polymorphic loci (P), and genetic differentiation (theta and Nei's genetic distance) were estimated using 41 putative RAPD loci. All three species show high levels of genetic variation (H(S)=0.12-0.29, P=63.4-95.1), and low genetic differentiation between populations and species (theta populations=0.14+/-0.02 (SE); G(st)=0.11+/-0.02). Accordingly, gene flow among populations was estimated as high by three different methods (N(m)=2.91-6.14). Nei's genetic distances between the three species were low compared to the values obtained from other Agavaceae, and there was no clear correlation with taxonomic divisions. In a UPGMA analysis, A. subsimplex and A. cerulata formed exclusive monospecific clusters, whereas the A. deserti populations appear in more than one cluster together with other species. The results were consistent with a pattern of genetic isolation by distance.  (+info)

Four new steroid constituents from the waste residue of fibre separation from Agave americana leaves. (5/32)

Three new steroidal saponins, named agamenosides H-J (1-3), and a new cholestane steroid agavegenin D (4) were isolated from the waste residue of fibre separation from Agave americana leaves, together with six known steroids. Structures of the new compounds 1-4 were deduced to be (22S,23S,24R,25S)-24-[(beta-D-glucopyranosyl)oxy]-5alpha-spirostane-3beta,6alpha, 23-triol 6-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside (1), (22S,23S,24R,25S)-5alpha-spirostane-3beta,23,24-triol 24-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside (2), (22S,23S,25R,26S)-23,26-epoxy-5alpha-furostane-3beta,22,26-triol 26-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside (3), and (22S,25S)-5alpha-cholestane-3beta,16beta,22,26-tetrol (4), respectively, by means of spectroscopic analysis, including extensive 1D and 2D NMR data, and the results of hydrolytic cleavage.  (+info)

Timing and rate of speciation in Agave (Agavaceae). (6/32)

The Agave (Agavaceae) are keystone species of semiarid to arid regions where the geographic center of origin is Mexico but whose populations spread from the southwestern U.S. through Central America, the Caribbean, and into northern South America. Our analyses indicate that Agave is a young genus, between 7.8 and 10.1 million years old, and yet it harbors the most species of any genera in the family. Of the eight genera in the family, Agave is paraphyletic with respect to three of them, and these four genera are often grouped into a genus termed Agave sensu lato, which harbors 208 of the 293 recognized species in the Agavaceae. In this article, we examine the phylogenetic limits of Agave sensu lato and present analyses elucidating the origin and rate of speciation in the group. These analyses lead to some new insights into the phylogenetic limits of Agave, indicate an estimated age of the family between 20 and 26 million years and an age of the Agave sensu lato of +info)

Isolation, characterization, and localization of AgaSGNH cDNA: a new SGNH-motif plant hydrolase specific to Agave americana L. leaf epidermis. (8/32)

GDSL and SGNH hydrolases are lipases involved in a wide range of functions, behaving in many cases as bifunctional enzymes. In this work, the isolation and characterization of AgaSGNH, a cDNA encoding a member of the SGNH-hydrolase superfamily from young leaf epidermis of the monocot Agave americana L., is reported. The protein possesses a typical signal peptide at its N-terminus that allows its secretion to the epidermis cell wall, as verified by immunolocalization experiments. In addition, the AgaSGNH sequence contains a His-Leu-Gly-Ala-Glu (HLGAE) motif which is similar to that observed in other plant acyltransferases. Expression levels by northern blot and in situ localization of the corresponding mRNA, as well as the immunolocalization of the protein in Agave young leaves indicate that the protein is specifically present in the epidermal cells. The detailed study performed in different parts of the Agave leaf confirms two aspects: first, the expression of AgaSGNH is limited to the epidermis, and second, the maximum mRNA levels are found in the epidermis of the youngest zones of the leaf which are especially active in cutin biosynthesis. These levels dramatically decrease in the oldest zone of the leaf, where the presence of AgaSGNH mRNA is undetectable, and the biosynthesis of different cuticle components is severely reduced. These data could be compatible with the hypothesis that AgaSGNH could carry out both the hydrolysis and the transfer, from an activated acyl-CoA to a crescent cutin in Agave americana leaves and, therefore, be involved in the still unknown mechanism of plant cutin biosynthesis.  (+info)

Plants of Agave spp. perform Crassulacean acid metabolism (CAM) and are highly drought-tolerant, but little is known concerning seed germination under low water availability. The aim of this study was to assess the effect of substrate water potential (ΨW) on seed germination and contrast hydrotime parameters of seven valuable and commercially-important Agave species from different geographical distributions and climatic regions of Mexico. Our hypothesis was that seed germination of Agave species is not affected by low water availability independently of seed biomass and the climate of their distribution area. Seed germination (at 25°C and in the dark) between 85 and 100% for all species occurred within 80-180 h at -0.03 MPa and 250-430 h at -1.0 MPa. Seed germination at -1.5 MPa declined to less than 50% (p | 0.05) for A. asperrima and A. cupreata but did not change significantly for A. americana var. marginata, A. lechuguilla and A. striata, although they showed the lowest mean base water potential (
Daniel Aubry, Matthew Daniel - March 2006 Taking their cue from a chorus of premium Tequila bottlings on their shelves, savvy bar managers are orchestrating drinks programs around this revitalized spirit. By Salvador Cervantes reckoning, the billions of yeast devouring the mashed hearts of Agave tequilana Weber are partial to Mozart. It relaxes them, he explains, standing over huge amber vats of mosto that seem to swirl in time to the music beneath the bright lights of the Cazadores distillery in Amatitán. For this master distiller and others throughout the state of Jalisco in western Mexico, these are good times to be in the business of Tequila.. Their bounty derives from the enormous blue Weber agaves that spike the arid volcanic slopes of Jalisco and designated areas of four adjacent states in neatly packed rows of dusty azure starbursts. After reaching maturity, a process that requires eight to 10 years of basking in the sun, the entire plant is harvested by jimadores, who sever its long ...

Thermal Properties of Hohokam Rock-Piles Boost Agave Photosynthesis: Assessment of Agave murpheyi and Agave americana in Rock-Piles.. The pre-Columbian indigenous group, Hohokam, used rock-piles to cultivate agaves in Arizona. Rock-piles acted as mulch to retain soil moisture and catch rainfall runoff at hill slopes. These rock-piles were the main approach for cultivating drought tolerant agaves. Agave murpheyi and Agave americana are among the agaves in the region cultivated by the Hohokam. Hohokam Agave, or Agave murpheyi, has been reported as endemic at archaeologic sites in Arizona. In addition, Agave americana remnants have been reported at Hohokam rock-pile fields. Because these two Agave species have the potential to produce large amounts of edible biomass in limited water conditions, evidence suggests that they were introduced synanthropically to Arizona. However, few ...

To produce agave syrup from the Agave americana and A. tequilana plants, the leaves are cut off the plant after it has been growing for seven to fourteen years. The juice is then extracted from the core of the agave, called the piña.[2] The juice is filtered, then heated to break the complex components (the polysaccharides) into simple sugars.[2] The main polysaccharide is called fructan, a polymer of fructose molecules.[1] This filtered juice is then concentrated to a syrupy liquid, slightly thinner than honey. Its color varies from light- to dark-amber, depending on the degree of processing.[1] Agave salmiana is processed differently from Agave tequiliana. As the plant develops, it starts to grow a stalk called a quiote.[3] The stalk is cut off before it fully grows, creating a hole in the center of the plant that fills with a liquid called aguamiel. The liquid is collected daily. The liquid is then heated, breaking down its complex components into fructose, glucose, and sucrose,[1] and ...

Watson (1960) found that the Ca content of the leaf, stem and nodules was increased by liming to pH 6.0, with a smaller increase with liming to pH 7.0. The side-effect of liming, however, was to release molybdenum, especially at pH 7.0, the Ca and Mo contents rising appreciably. Liming also decreased the Mn content markedly. Pueraria phaseoloides is the most successful leguminous cover crop in sisal (Agave sisalana), which is a luxury consumer of calcium and is usually heavily limed. Loustalot and Telford (1948) found that lack of Ca caused rotting of the root system. The chlorophyll of the leaves faded along the margins and between the main veins, and the green was replaced by a buff pigment around the midrib. The area immediately adjacent to the main vein was unusually dark green. The leaves dropped before they became necrotic. The plants gave 57 percent of their maximum yield in the absence of Ca. Calcium deficiency appeared early and very few nodules were produced, some of which were ...
A bit about the history of Sino Tequila.. In late 2007, a group of friends were talking about (and of course drinking) our favorite alcohol, Tequila, and how things had become very stale and superficial in promoting this great liquid in the U.S. Judy Rivera started thinking about how bringing a new perspective to the tequila market influenced by her years of living in LA and all the great friendships she had made with artists, musicians, skaters and other inspiring people along the way could stir things up all the while creating a tequila from scratch, exactly the way she wanted it to taste..

Like many Texans, I am a big fan of tequila. Whether in cocktails or sipped neat, the complexity of this noble spirit embodies the flavors of the Southwest. However, there are a number of factors that have made the production of high-quality tequila problematic in the last couple of decades.. Part of this problem lies in the nature of the agave plant itself. The agave plant takes from six to ten years or more to reach maturity. This means that tequila producers must gauge how much agave they need years in advance. Plant too few agave plants and there is a shortage. However, plant too much and there is a glut of agave on the market. Too much agave, and it can cost more to harvest the plant than can be recouped by making tequila. This is especially problematic for small producers.. Another issue caused by the mass planting of agave is one that is seen in other mass-produced crops: the problem of large-scale monoculture. Since real tequila can by law only be produced from 100% blue agave, entire ...

Subspecies, varieties, forms and cultivars of plants belonging to the Agave parry group. Agave parryi is widespread over a vast territory giving rise to a corresponding amount of variability. This variability has been recognized by botanists and the current thinking by agave taxonomists is that Agave parryi consists of two subspecies: Agave parryi ssp. neomexicana and A. parryi ssp. parryi. The ssp. parryi is further divided into four varieties; the nominate form, var. couesii, var. huachucensis and var. truncata. The distinctions between the varieties are somewhat ambiguous and, although the varieties are weakly differentiated, it appears that there is some geographic separation between them. ...

With the TEQUILA5, we have created something special. This well-balanced glider is even easier to fly than its predecessor, while offering significantly more performance.. The basis for this results from the wing concept with a slightly higher aspect ratio compared to its successful predecessor, a cell count increase from 45 to 49, a performance-optimized profile, a leading edge with Shark Nose, and a new 3D shaping. This concept ensures that the TEQUILA5 stays exceptionally quiet in the air. Its agreeable damping gives you a feeling of confidence and safety, right from your first turn in the thermals. The TEQUILA5 is easy to center in the thermals and climbs almost by itself. Brake pressure increases linearly and its balanced handling lets you set your bank angle precisely.. The new wing design also delivers a significant boost in performance. In turbulent air, whether youre flying on- or off-bar, the TEQUILA5 gives you a stable platform to cut a smooth line. This smoothness and simplicity is ...

All this obsessive attention to detail leads to the most flavorful Tequila Ive ever had, bar none. El Tesoro has a crackling intensity, a sustain, a hang-time in the mouth that simply outclasses other Tequilas. You dont just get stony, mineral, earthy flavors-you get a faceplant into the red highland Tequila soil. You dont just taste green bean-you get the snap of the bean, the juice of cucumber. The difference between El Tesoro and other Tequilas is like the difference between normal and high-definition TV. The operative word is clarity.. *Im pleased to say there is another Camarena-crafted Tequila on the market. (No, not the Camarena brand owned by Gallo; thats made by Carlos cousin from another branch of the family.)

Ocho is a single vintage Tequila, chosen each year from only one agave field. Ocho reveals the ...

At the Argentine National Observatory, Perrine dedicated his time as director to counting the number of extragalactic nebulae. He also set up a huge telescope in Bosque Alegre. Thirteen comets bear his name today, discoveries or co-discoveries. He remained with Bell all his life, and never stopped visiting California. One curious work he wrote at Hermosa Beach while on vacation is called On the Cause of Green Ray Seen at Sunset.. Perrine died in Villa General Mitre, a town eighty kilometers from the observatory today called Villa del Totoral. The town was once home to the Comechingone people, but now is known to visitors mostly because of the summer house rented by Rafael Alberti and Pablo Neruda. Bell stayed with him to the end. Their ending place may seem arbitrary, but is the logical consequence of anticipated and unanticipated choices made during their life journeys.. Visiting the town now, I think of Charles and Bell as I look at the paintings of Octavio Pinto, a local painter. In them, ...

This work is to investigate the effectiveness of the surface treatment technique of fiber impregnation in polymer solution in improving compatibility of natural fibers with matrix. Hemp and sisal fibers were treated through polymer coating in comparison to acetylation, alkalization/acetylation, and silanization. Different analytical techniques were employed to examine effect of surface treatment, including Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FTIR), scanning electron microscopy (SEM), X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS), X-ray diffraction (XRD), and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA) in nitrogen and air. FTIR showed acetylation combined with alkalization led to the highest hemicellulose and lignin removal among all treated fibers for both fibers, while polymer coating led to an increase at peak around 1,736 cm(-1) due to the carbonyl group. SEM micrographs of treated fibers showed cleaner surfaces due to removal of waxy substances and lignin during treatments. Thermal stability of treated ...
Thanks to a first half goal from Argentine Mariano Pavone, Cruz Azul has finally managed to transcend its reputation. After runners-up finishes in the 2009 and 2010 CONCACAF Champions League - and second place finishes in four Mexican league tournaments in the last seven years - La Maquina had become Mexicos nearly-club, but with a 1-1 result Wednesday in Toluca, Cruz Azul finally broke through. After a 0-0 result last week at Estadio Azul, Luis Fernando Tenas team claimed CONCACAFs title on away goals.. Edgar Benítezs late tally brought the Red Devils back even, but after a scoreless draw last week in Mexico City, Pavone goal gave Cruz Azul the finals first tiebreaker. Though Toluca nearly went up through Pablo Velazquez late, Liga MXs second place team was unable to overcome the Clausuras pacesetters, leaving Tenas team to claim its CONCACAF history.. Cruz Azul entered the final tied with Club América for most confederation titles (five), though thanks to the clubs near misses on ...
