Citation: Hojillaevangelist, M.P., Evangelista, R.L. 2006. Effects of cooking and screw-pressing on functional properties of Cuphea PSR23 seed proteins. Journal of the American Oil Chemists Society. 83:(8):713-718. Interpretive Summary: Cuphea is an annual crop native to the Americas that is being developed as an alternate source of industrial oil. Cuphea seed contains 16-42% oil that is rich in medium-chain fatty acids (MCFA). These MCFAs are used in detergents, cosmetics, lubricants, and fuels. The current commercial sources of MCFAs are the tropical oils (coconut and palm kernel oils). Cuphea oil has the potential to augment or replace these imported sources of MCFAs. If Cuphea oil production is successful, then it is anticipated that protein-rich meals will also be generated because the seed contains as much as 25% crude protein. However, there is no information currently available on the quality and properties of Cuphea seed proteins. Our study was conducted to determine the functional ...

Cuphea has been in development as an industrial crop for a number of years. Once the oilseed reaches commercial viability it could replace imported oils and petroleum as a source for capric and lauric acids used in the production of manufacturing surfactants, detergents, lubricants, personal care products and other specialty chemicals.
Goldsmith Seeds. Cuphea Sriracha Series. The Cuphea Sriracha series is a totally new, heat-loving series from seed that offers season-extending opportunities for growers and retailers.

Interpretive Summary: This work demonstrates that a sustainable supply of the fragrance compound and insect repellent, 2-undecanone, can be produced from the new row crop, Cuphea. The current source for this compound is wild tomatoes which results in an expensive mosquito repellent cream. We have shown that the seed oil from Cuphea can be reacted with acetic acid over the proper catalyst to yield 2-undecanone in such high yield that an acre of Cuphea could yield 160 lbs of the active ingredient. This could be used to produce just over a ton of effective insect repellent lotion. Beneficiaries of this work include growers and processors of small acreage crops, such as Cuphea, and manufacturers of natural insect repellent lotions. Technical Abstract: The objective of this work was to demonstrate the viability of the ...

The antioxidant activity of Psychotria carthagenensis, P. leiocarpa, P. capillacea and P. deflexa (Rubiaceae) extracts were investigated, and the concentrations of total phenolics, flavonoids, condensed tannins and flavonols were determined. The chemical compositions of the extracts were investigated using the high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC/PAD) method. We used 1,1-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl free radical (DPPH), β-Carotene bleaching and 2,2-azinobis (3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS) radical cations to determine antioxidant activity. The ability to scavenge radical was measured in these experiments by the discoloration of the solution. Concentrations of constituents were measured spectrophotometrically. P. carthagenensis and P. capillacea exhibited the highest antioxidant activity, in the DPPH test, β-carotene bleaching and ABTS system. The highest phenolic, flavonoid, condensed tannin and flavonol concentration was found in P. carthagenensis and P. capillacea extracts.
Acyl-acyl carrier protein (ACP) thioesterases play an essential role in chain termination during de novo fatty acid synthesis and in the channeling of carbon flux between the two lipid biosynthesis pathways in plants. We have discovered that there are two distinct but related thioesterase gene classes in higher plants, termed FatA and FatB, whose evolutionary divergence appears to be ancient. FatA encodes the already described 18:1-ACP thioesterase. In contrast, FatB representatives encode thioesterases preferring acyl-ACPs having saturated acyl groups. We unexpectedly obtained a 16:0-ACP thioesterase cDNA from Cuphea hookeriana seed, which accumulate predominantly 8:0 and 10:0. The 16:0 thioesterase transcripts were found in non-seed tissues, and expression in transgenic Brassica napus led to the production of a 16:0-rich oil. We present evidence that this type of FatB gene is ancient and ubiquitous in plants and that specialized plant medium-chain thioesterases have evolved independently from ...
It sounds like apple scab and once you see the spots on the fruit, the disease is already fully developed. Apple scab also causes leaf spots. Scab first develops in early spring as circular, olive-green spots with a velvety texture. Scab lesions can appear on the upper and lower surfaces of leaves and on the fruit. The spots turn dark green or brown with a rough, scaly texture. The fungus only colonizes the surface, so lightly blemished fruit can still be eaten if you simply cut off the scabby part ...

  • Cuphea is the genus name for 260 species found in uncultivated areas from the southern United States into Central and South America. (biomassmagazine.com)
  • Cuphea /ˈkjuːfiːə/ is a genus containing about 260 species of annual and perennial flowering plants native to warm temperate to tropical regions of the Americas. (wikipedia.org)
  • As the price of petroleum and tropical oils increase, and the price of corn and soybeans adjust to new market conditions, a yield-enhanced cuphea has the potential to compete. (biomassmagazine.com)
  • Illinois research determined that cuphea is beneficial in rotation with corn as it helps to break the corn rootworm cycle and boost corn yields. (biomassmagazine.com)
  • Cuphea has the potential to become a hot commodity, however, if researchers succeed in boosting yields to the 2,000 pound per acre level. (biomassmagazine.com)
  • We have shown that the seed oil from Cuphea can be reacted with acetic acid over the proper catalyst to yield 2-undecanone in such high yield that an acre of Cuphea could yield 160 lbs of the active ingredient. (usda.gov)
  • In a flow reactor, Fe0.5Ce0.2Al0.3Ox gave 2-undecanone at 91% theoretical yield with reaction conditions of 400°C, weight hourly space velocity of 2, molar ratio of acetic acid to Cuphea oil of 23, and N2 carrier gas flow of 125 ml/min at 2.4 bar. (usda.gov)
  • I've heard one company say it would use production from 300,000 acres, and another from 1 million acres," says Russ Gesch, a research plant physiologist with the USDA Agricultural Research Service (ARS) in Morris, Minn., who is among a small group of researchers trying to domesticate cuphea. (biomassmagazine.com)
  • Thirty years ago, scientists looking for promising new plant materials began working with cuphea because it's a natural source of short- and medium-chain fatty acids. (biomassmagazine.com)
  • Cuphea could be a domestic source for short- and medium-carbon chain fatty acids such as capric acid and lauric acid used in manufacturing surfactants, detergents, lubricants, personal care products and other specialty chemicals. (biomassmagazine.com)
  • Current cuphea agronomic lines contain 30 percent to 35 percent oil, of which 80 percent to 90 percent is capric acid. (biomassmagazine.com)
  • Cuphea may thus produce a valuable source of income for farmers in temperate regions, and by supplementing coconut and palm oil to satisfy the growing demand (e.g. for biodiesel production) at the same time decreasing the need for wholesale logging in tropical countries. (wikipedia.org)
