Studies on brain biogenic amines in methanolic extract of Cuscuta reflexa Roxb. and Corchorus olitorius Linn. seed treated mice. (1/31)

The methanolic extract of both Cuscuta reflexa stem and Corchorus olitorius seed showed marked protection against convulsion induced by chemoconvulsive agents in mice. The catecholamines contained were significantly increased in the processed extract treated mice. The amount of GABA, which is most likely to be involved in seizure activity, was increased significantly in mice brain after a six week treatment. Results of the present study revealed that both the processed extracts showed a significant anticonvulsive property by altering the level of catecholamines and brain amino acids in mice.  (+info)

Carotenoid specificity of light-harvesting complex II binding sites. Occurrence of 9-cis-violaxanthin in the neoxanthin-binding site in the parasitic angiosperm Cuscuta reflexa. (2/31)

The parasitic angiosperm Cuscuta reflexa has a highly unusual carotenoid composition in that it does not contain neoxanthin, an otherwise ubiquitous component of the major light-harvesting complex protein (LHCIIb) in all other higher plant species studied to date. Combined HPLC and mass spectrometric analysis has enabled us to detect in tissues of C. reflexa two new types of xanthophylls: lutein-5,6-epoxide and 9-cis-violaxanthin. We have isolated the LHCIIb complex from thylakoids and analyzed chlorophyll and carotenoid composition. The data show that the 9-cis-violaxanthin is present in amounts similar to that of neoxanthin in most plants. On the other hand, lutein-5,6-epoxide was found to be in substoichiometric quantities, suggesting a peripheral location similar to the loosely-associated all-trans-violaxanthin and also enabling suitable accessibility for the de-epoxidase (VDE). Absorption spectroscopy revealed close similarities of the excited state energies of neoxanthin and 9-cis-violaxanthin in vitro and in intact LHCIIb complex. Resonance Raman analysis clearly indicates a cis conformation of violaxanthin in the complex, confirming the pigment analysis data and proving that not only does violaxanthin replace neoxanthin as an intrinsic component of LHCIIb in C. reflexa but it also adopts the same 9-cis conformation of neoxanthin. These results suggest that the N1 binding site of LHCIIb preferentially binds 9-cis-5,6-epoxy carotenoids, which has implications for the features of this binding site and its role in the photosystem II antenna assembly and stability.  (+info)

Chemical and toxicological evaluation of methanol extract of Cuscuta reflexa Roxb. stem and Corchorus olitorius Linn. seed on hematological parameters and hepatorenal functions in mice. (3/31)

Methanol extract of Cuscuta reflexa Roxb. stem (MECR) contain flavonoids (0.2%) and Corchorus olitorius Linn. seed (MECO) was found to contain steroids and cardenolide glycosides. Effects of multiple weekly dose of MECR (25, 50, 75 mg/kg, i.p.) and MECO (15, 20, 25 mg/kg, i.p.) on liver and kidney functions and hematological parameters in mice were studied. No significant alteration of RBC count and hemoglobin content was observed in all dose level of treatment in MECR and MECO treated mice whereas significant increase of clotting time was seen in moderate and high doses in both case. MECR and MECO both caused significant increase in WBC count only in high dose level of treatment. Both the extracts in medium and high dose level increased SGOT, SGPT, NPN and plasma cholesterol significantly. Serum alkaline phosphatase and total bilirubin were also increased by both moderate and high dose level of treatments in MECR and MECO treated mice respectively. Low dose of both the extract did not exhibit any significant change of creatinine and serum protein level. But high dose level of MECR and MECO significantly increased creatinine level. Increase in plasma cholesterol may be due to decrease in cholesterol catabolism owing to liver dysfunction of due to the intake of MECO itself as it was found to be steroid in nature. Elevated level of SGOT, SGPT and serum alkaline phosphatase activity in moderate and high dose level of weekly treated mice may be due to improper liver function following the treatment. Increased urea, non protein nitrogen and creatinine content in blood have been observed with impaired renal function. The slightly higher toxicity in case of MECO treated mice may be due to the presence of cardenolide glycosides in the ME of C. olitorius seed. However, low doses of MECR and MECO (25 and 15 mg/kg, i.p. respectively) did not exhibit any remarkable change on liver and kidney functions and hematological parameters.  (+info)

New ELISA kits using C3 binding glycoprotein from Cuscuta europea detect mainly IgM CIC in rheumatoid arthritis and progressive systemic sclerosis, but not in systemic lupus erythematosus. (4/31)

Elevated levels of circulating immune complexes (CIC), containing IgG, IgM or IgA antibodies were detected in the sera of patients with autoimmune diseases. This might indicate a different biological meaning of the three isotypes of immunoglobulin (Ig) in the CIC. Each CIC assay detected only certain classes and subclasses of Ig in CIC material or fixed complement protein. In this study, a new method based on C3binding glycoprotein named CIF-ELISA and a well-known method ANTI-C3 ELISA, were used for quantitative assessment of IgM-CIC, IgG-CIC and IgA-CIC levels in human sera. A modified CIF-ELISA and ANTI-C3 ELISA for simultaneous detection of CIC, containing IgG, IgM and IgA, (stCIC), were also performed. The assays were evaluated on the same specially prepared samples: 55 normal sera, 99 sera from rheumatoid arthritis (RA), 88 sera from systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), and 27 sera from progressive systemic sclerosis (PSS). We found that the sensitivity of the tests used varied depending on the diseases studied. CIF-ELISA displayed higher sensitivity of IgM-CIC when compared to ANTI-C3 ELISA in RA patients (40.0 and 20.95%, respectively) and PSS (44.43 and 37.04%, respectively). Results for the sensitivity of IgA-CIC were in adverse direction in the RA group (14.28 and 19.05%) and PSS (14.81 and 25.93%) by both methods. It was also established that the concordance of IgM-CIC positives by both methods was 48.84% in RA and 46.67% in PSS, while in SLE it was 18.78%. These results are most probably due to the different assay abilities to detect antibody isotype of the CIC material and help to explain what specific role each Ig isotype in CIC has in the course of the disease.  (+info)

Evaluation of psychopharmacological effects of petroleum ether extract of Cuscuta reflexa Roxb. stem in mice. (5/31)

The petroleum ether extract of Cuscuta reflexa Roxb. stem (PECR) was evaluated for its psychopharmacological activities in several experimental models using Swiss albino mice. The PECR was found to cause significant reduction in spontaneous activity and exploratory behavioral profiles. It also showed reduction in muscle relaxant activity by rotarod, 30 degrees inclined screen tests and showed significant analgesic properties as well as potentiated remarkably the pentobarbitone sodium, diazepam and meprobamate--induced sleeping time. All these results were compared with respective controls for the evaluation of significance. The presence of steroids in the PECR might he responsible for psychopharmacological activities.  (+info)

Plastid genome structure and loss of photosynthetic ability in the parasitic genus Cuscuta. (6/31)

The genus Cuscuta (dodder) is composed of parasitic plants, some species of which appear to be losing the ability to photosynthesize. A molecular phylogeny was constructed using 15 species of Cuscuta in order to assess whether changes in photosynthetic ability and alterations in structure of the plastid genome relate to phylogenetic position within the genus. The molecular phylogeny provides evidence for four major clades within Cuscuta. Although DNA blot analysis showed that Cuscuta species have smaller plastid genomes than tobacco, and that plastome size varied significantly even within one Cuscuta clade, dot blot analysis indicated that the dodders possess homologous sequence to 101 genes from the tobacco plastome. Evidence is provided for significant rates of DNA transfer from plastid to nucleus in Cuscuta. Size and structure of Cuscuta plastid genomes, as well as photosynthetic ability, appear to vary independently of position within the phylogeny, thus supporting the hypothesis that within Cuscuta photosynthetic ability and organization of the plastid genome are changing in an unco-ordinated manner.  (+info)

Transfer of phloem-mobile substances from the host plants to the holoparasite Cuscuta sp. (7/31)

During the development of the haustorium, searching hyphae of the parasite and the host parenchyma cells are connected by plasmodesmata. Using transgenic tobacco plants expressing a GFP-labelled movement protein of the tobacco mosaic virus, it was demonstrated that the interspecific plasmodesmata are open. The transfer of substances in the phloem from host to the parasite is not selective. After simultaneous application of (3)H-sucrose and (14)C-labelled phloem-mobile amino acids, phytohormones, and xenobiotica to the host, corresponding percentages of the translocated compounds are found in the parasite. An open continuity between the host phloem and the Cuscuta phloem via the haustorium was demonstrated in CLSM pictures after application of the phloem-mobile fluorescent probes, carboxyfluorescein (CF) and hydroxypyrene trisulphonic acid (HPTS), to the host. Using a Cuscuta bridge (14)C-sucrose and the virus PVY(N) were transferred from one host plant to the another. The results of translocation experiments with labelled compounds, phloem-mobile dyes and the virus should be considered as unequivocal evidence for a symplastic transfer of phloem solutes between Cuscuta species and their compatible hosts.  (+info)

Volatile chemical cues guide host location and host selection by parasitic plants. (8/31)

The importance of plant volatiles in mediating interactions between plant species is much debated. Here, we demonstrate that the parasitic plant Cuscuta pentagona (dodder) uses volatile cues for host location. Cuscuta pentagona seedlings exhibit directed growth toward nearby tomato plants (Lycopersicon esculentum) and toward extracted tomato-plant volatiles presented in the absence of other cues. Impatiens (Impatiens wallerana) and wheat plants (Triticum aestivum) also elicit directed growth. Moreover, seedlings can distinguish tomato and wheat volatiles and preferentially grow toward the former. Several individual compounds from tomato and wheat elicit directed growth by C. pentagona, whereas one compound from wheat is repellent. These findings provide compelling evidence that volatiles mediate important ecological interactions among plant species.  (+info)

Plant infestation with parasitic weeds like Cuscuta reflexa induces morphological as well as biochemical changes in the host and the parasite. These modifications could be caused by a change in protein or gene activity. Using a comparative macroarray approach Cuscuta genes specifically upregulated at the host attachment site were identified. One of the infestation specific Cuscuta genes encodes a cysteine protease. The protein and its intrinsic inhibitory peptide were heterologously expressed, purified and biochemically characterized. The haustoria specific enzyme was named cuscutain in accordance with similar proteins from other plants, e.g. papaya. The role of cuscutain and its inhibitor during the host parasite interaction was studied by external application of an inhibitor suspension, which induced a significant reduction of successful infection events. The study provides new information about molecular events during the parasitic plant - host interaction. Inhibition of cuscutain cysteine proteinase

An intriguing new paradigm in plant biology is that systemically mobile mRNAs play a role in coordinating development. In this process, specific mRNAs are loaded into the phloem transport stream for translocation to distant tissues, where they may impact on developmental processes. However, despite its potential significance for plant growth regulation, mRNA trafficking remains poorly understood and challenging to study. Here, we show that phloem-mobile mRNAs can also traffic between widely divergent species from a host to the plant parasite lespedeza dodder (Cuscuta pentagona Engelm.). Reverse transcription-polymerase chain reaction and microarray analysis were used to detect specific tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) transcripts in dodder grown on tomato that were not present in control dodder grown on other host species. Foreign transcripts included LeGAI, which has previously been shown to be translocated in the phloem, as well as nine other transcripts not reported to be mobile. ...
Light micrograph of a section through a haustorium of a parasitic dodder plant (Cuscuta sp.). A haustorium is a modified root of a parasitic plant, which penetrates the tissues of its host plant. Once inside, it sucks sugars from the hosts phloem tissues, and water and minerals from the xylem. Dodder is a widespread parasitic plant that attacks a huge variety of plants, including crops. It derives all its nutrients from the host. It is an annual in temperate regions but can grow year-round in tropical areas. Importing it is illegal in many areas, and batches of seed are checked for contamination by its own seeds. - Stock Video Clip K004/7889
If you dont carry a ruler you can use a quarter which is an inch in diameter. Although flowers may be easy to measure, the size often varies. Botanical descriptions often do not include the flower size so some of our size information may be wrong. When a plant has clusters of small flowers you should measure the size of a flower even though it may be very small. Many plants have flowers that are not obvious and in that case we put them in the "Very Small" category ...

Epifagus virginiana - commonly called beech drops (or beech-drops, or beechdrops) - is an obligate parasitic plant which grows and subsists on the roots of American beech. It is a member of the broomrape family. Epifagus is monotypic-containing only E. virginiana. The name Epifagus derives from Greek "epi" meaning "on" or "upon", and "Fagus" which is the genus name of beech. Beechdrops is an annual plant native to eastern North America. It entirely lacks chlorophyll and produces many brown stems up to 30 cm tall on which it bears small white and purple flowers that appear in July through October. The flowers have tubular, zygomorphic, corollas ~8mm long containing a single syle and four stamens. The dried flower stalks will persist throughout the winter. The flowers on the lower parts of the plant are cleistogamous (self-pollinating) while the tops of the stems have chasmogamous (cross-pollinating) flowers which may be sterile. Beechdrops does contain very small alternate, scale like leaves, ...

Cassytha is a genus of some two dozen species of obligately parasitic vines in the family Lauraceae. Superficially, and in some aspects of their ecology, they closely resemble plants in the unrelated genus Cuscuta, the dodders. When fruit and flowers are absent in the field, the physical resemblance is so close that few people without technical training can tell them apart. In this respect and in their ecology the two genera present a spectacular example of convergent evolution. In its divergence from habits typical of the Lauraceae, Cassytha also presents examples of mosaic evolution Several species of Cassytha are regarded as pests in various regions, though as a rule they are not as serious a problem as the true dodders. Some even yield a welcome harvest of fruit, or are valued for their perceived medicinal or aphrodisiac properties, partly because, like many members of the Lauraceae, some are fragrant when bruised. Their stems make useful strings for construction of thatched roofs and ...
The River Dodder has a history of flooding and is known as a "flashy" river with a quick response to rainstorms. This is due to its source being in the Dublin mountains which provides it with a steep gradient. In the last century it has overflowed its banks on numerous occasions causing damage to adjacent properties. One of the most severe floods in recent times occurred on 25th August 1986 (Hurricane Charlie) with well over 300 properties affected by the flooding, leading to much human misery and anxiety. During this storm the reservoir dams in Bohernabreena were within millimetres of being overtopped. To secure the dams new spillways have been constructed at the Bohernabreena reservoirs to cater for the "Probable Maximum Flood". This work was completed in 2006. Another most notable flooding event occurred in February 1st 2002 when there was a significant high tide, over 600 properties were flooded on the lower Dodder downstream of Landsdowne Road Bridge. The recent flooding event on the 24th ...

Based on their dependency to complete life cycle, two categories of parasitic plants has been recognised, namely, obligate and facultative parasitic plants. Additionally, parasitic plants can be divided into hemiparasites that rely only partially on a host plant and are still able to make photosynthesis and holoparasites that are completely dependent on photoassimilates.

Three plant genera with South American-Australasian disjunctive distributions were studied: Eucryphia, Griselinia and Coriaria . The aims of the project were: a) to assess the utility of different chloroplast and nuclear DNA sequences for phylogenetic reconstruction and b) by means of molecular clocks to establish whether or not this distribution is due to vicariance (continental drift) or more recent dispersal events. DNA was extracted, and regions of interest were amplified and sequenced. These were rpoA, trnL-F and trnU-K from the chloroplast genome, and rDNA 5.8S and intergenic spacers 1 and 2, Adh and two loci of the G3pdh gene from the nuclear genome. In each of the three genera, a single trans-Antarctic disjunction was indicated. Molecular phylogenies were produced using parsimony. Individual base pair variation was analysed in detail, and graphs were drawn to highlight variable regions. Sequences providing the most resolution were trnL-F, ITS and the two loci of the G3pdh. Robust ...

Division Two: Meadow Ben B 8 - 1 Harper Brass A.

Wizards net, devils guts, and witchs hair are just a few of the common names for dodder, a nefarious rootless and leafless parasitic plant that sucks the water and nutrients out of its plant victims using a penetrating organ called a haustorium. Masses of the spaghetti-like dodder can smother crops, including soybeans, clover, and alfalfa. New research suggests that dodders victims try to make the best of a miserable situation. Because dodders haustoria bridge the vasculatures of multiple plants, the victims can use the parasite as a conduit to share chemical information about herbivorous insect pests when they try to invade, reports a team led by Ian T. Baldwin of the Max Planck Institute for Chemical Ecology and Jianqiang Wu of the Chinese Academy of Sciences Kunming Institute of Botany (Proc. Natl. Acad. Sci. USA 2017, DOI: 10.1073/pnas.1704536114). Working with two soybean plants connected by dodder, the team found that when insects start attacking one soybean plant, that plant employs ...

Wuzi-Yanzong-Wan (WZYZW), a classical traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) prescription containing Fructus Lych, Semen Cuscutae (fried), Fructus Rubi, Fructus Schisandrae chinensis (steamed) and Semen Plantaginis (fried with salt), is widely used to treat impotence, sterility, spermatorrhea, premature ejaculation, lumbago and post-micturation dribble. However, the chemical profile of WZYZW has not been established yet. In this work, a rapid and sensitive method for systematically screening and identifying the chemical constituents of WZYZW in both positive and negative ion modes using Ultra-Performance LC coupled with ESI-linear ion trap-Orbitrap tandem mass spectrometry (UPLC-ESI-LTQ-Orbitrap-MS) has been developed. Based on the chromatographic and spectrometric data, and referring to the literature, we could tentatively identify 106 compounds, including organic acids, flavonoids, phenylpropanoids, alkaloids and terpenoids. Fourteen ingredients from Fructus Lych were identified, while 10 ingredients were

Some organisms combine the properties of animals and plants. For example, Euglena (Figure 1-10) is a motile, single-celled organism that resembles plants in being photosynthetic, but it resembles animals in its ability to eat food particles. Euglena is part of a separate eukaryotic lineage that diverged from those of plants and animals early in the evolutionary history of eukaryotes.

An international team of researchers led by scientists at the University of Georgia has discovered how parasitic plants, which steal their nutrients from another living plant, evolved the ability to detect and attack their hosts. Their findings, published recently in the journal Science, could lead to new techniques to control the thieving weeds.
Scientists discover new species of parasitic flowering plant named Gleadovia konyakianorum. The species was named in honour of Konyak tribe of Nagas.

The plant kingdom is usually associated with autotrophy as most plants produce their own nutrients via photosynthesis. Plant parasitism presents a divergence from this generalization as parasitic plants derive all or part of their nutrients and water from their host plants. About 4,000 parasitic plant species are widely distributed among various taxa and over diverse environments, ranging from arctic to tropical climates. Some of the best known parasitic plants include the Christmas ornament mistletoe, the world largest blooming flower Rafflesia, the fragant oil producing sandalwood, and the debilitating agricultural weeds dodder, witchweed (Striga) and broomrape (Orobanche). Although diverse in morphology, reproductive aspects, and life habitats, all parasitic plants share a specialized organ - the haustorium - which they evolved to assure a successful life cycle [1]-[4]. Parasitic plants develop haustoria either near their root tips or along their stems in response to selective chemical ...

Sneaky parasitic weeds may be able to steal genes from the plants they are attacking and then use those genes against the host plant, according to a team of scientists.. In a study, researchers detected 52 incidents of the nonsexual transfer of DNA - known as horizontal gene transfer, or HGT - from a host plant that later became functional into members of a parasitic plant family known as the broomrapes, said Claude dePamphilis, professor of biology, Penn State. The transferred genes then became functional in the parasitic species. Although considered rare in more plants and other complex species, like plants, HGT may thus occur in some parasitic plants, an insight that could lead to better methods of controlling parasitic plants that threaten agriculture, he added.. "These parasitic plants that we study from the broomrape family include some of the the worlds most devastating agricultural weeds," said dePamphilis. "The HGT discovery is really part of our effort to try to better understand how ...

Plants of the Apocynaceae family have been traditionally used in the treatment of age-related brain disorders. Rauvolfia reflexa, a member of the family, has been used as an antidote for poisons and to treat malaria. The dichloromethane, ethanol and methanol extracts from the leaves of Rauvolfia reflexa showed potential acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) inhibitory activities, with IC50 values in the 8.49 to 52.23 g/mL range. Further cholinesterase inhibitory-guided isolation of these extracts afforded four bioactive compounds, namely: (E)-3-(3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl)acrylic acid (1), (E)-methyl 3-(4-hydroxy-3,5-dimethoxyphenyl) acrylate (2), 17-methoxycarbonyl-14-heptadecaenyl-4-hydroxy-3-methoxycinnamate (3) and 1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-1-oxo-β-carboline (4 ...
The use of plant activators offers an exciting new approach for the enhancement of growth and yield in crops and ornamental plants. During a previous study, the effect of a Lupinus albus L. seed suspension (SS), a novel plant activator, was tested on different crops. Field trials indicated that SS application could be linked to improved growth and yield of agricultural as well as horticultural crops. The aim of this study was thus to confirm the results of Van der Watt (2005) by studying the effects of SS on photosynthesis and gene expression in wheat. When applied to Thatcher + Lr34 wheat, chlorophyll a fluorescence measurements indicated that unstressed plants were not dramatically affected by SS application. However, when placed under water and heat stress, SS treatment improved the actual photosynthetic ability of the plants by reducing photo-inhibition as measured by heat loss as opposed to the control treatment. On molecular level, three different techniques were used to confirm the ...
Elysia chlorotica is not an ordinary sea slug (a mollusc). Elysia chlorotica is a photosynthetic sea animal. Like plants, it is capable of converting sunlight into energy.. The photosynthetic ability of Elysia chlorotica is the result of incorporation of algal (Vaucheria litorea) chloroplasts (organelles found in plant cells in which photosynthesis occurs) and chlorophyll producing genes into its molluscan cells. Vaucheria litorea belongs to the yellow-green algae of the class Xanthophyceae.. These slugs initially got the chlorophyll producing genes from the algae that they had eaten. Present generations of slugs have received these genes from their parent generations, and they are passing them to their daughter generations.. Elysia chlorotica gets its chlorophyll-making genes through genetic inheritance, but still is unable to carry out photosynthesis until it consumes adequate quantity of algae so as to receive necessary chloroplasts, which it is unable to produce by itself.. ...

A classic Ming dynasty formula, ZUO GUI WAN has been traditionally used for Kidney Yin or Yang Deficiency causing signs of low back pain or weakness, weak legs, ear ringing, heart palpitations, fatigue, impotence, and the many other signs of Kidney Yin Deficiency. Note that ZUO GUI WAN, contains both YIN and YANG strengthening herbs. Using YIN tonics like GUI BAN (turtle shell), SHU DI HUANG (rehmannia), and GOU QI ZI (lycium), but ZUO GUI also containing LU JIAO (antler) and TU SU ZI (cuscuta seeds) to strengthen the YANG of the Kidney as well.. ZUO GUI WAN contains 5 of the 6 herbs found in the famous YIN tonic Rehmannia Six (LIU WEI DI HUANG ), and is often preferred over LIU WEI when Kidney YIN deficiency causes fatigue, while LIU WEI is preferred when treating dryness caused by YIN deficiency.. Also note that ZUO GUI WAN as well as LIU WEI DI HUANG both use the astringent herb SHAN ZHU YU (cornus) to astringe the Kidney to prevent loss of fluids and essence (JING). ...
Unlike hemiparasitic plants such as mistletoes which have leaves and are able to photosynthesis on their own, holoparasitic plants, such L. hypogaea, are wholly dependent upon their host and do not have much in the way of external structures. The only parts of L. hypogaea that poke out of the ground are its red, mushroom-like flowers, which only appear during the dry seasons. So even though it is fairly common, unless you know what to look for, you wont even know that it is there. This is probably why very little is known about it aside from description of its anatomy and the list of plants that it parasitises. Until this and similar studies came along, the most comprehensive research on the natural history of L. hypogaea was published over a century ago ...

This can be a valuable way to get some species established, especially perennial ones, and where a more designed arrangement is desired. Whether on a nursery scale or just for the hobby gardener, there are a few tricks to it. Otherwise, it is no more difficult to grow than a standard perennial.. The most important part of successfully growing these plants in a pot is getting good seed. Old seed is frequently more deeply dormant, and this can cause problems, especially if you are growing the plant with a host. Seed collection and sowing (in pots) should be done according to the schedule outlined above.. The next most important decision is to decide whether to grow the plant with a host or not. Results vary between different growers and between different species. In general, any of these can be grown without a host under controlled conditions in a nursery, where nutrients and water can be provided as needed. The addition of a carefully selected host may improve the growth of some species ...

Aconite, like cinnamon bark, helps restore warmth to the kidney; epimedium, psoralea, and cuscuta further enhance the kidney yang and produce warmth. Citrus is included here primarily to aid the digestion of the rich tonic herbs, mainly the rehmannia. These amounts are for a one day dosage; the herbs are decocted, dried, and made into tablets; the usual instruction is to take 5 tablets each time, three times daily. To treat polycystic ovaries (or bronchitis in which there is substantial phlegm accumulation), this formulation might be combined with a phlegm-resolving formula such as Tan Yin Wan (pill for phlegm accumulation). Tan Yin Wan contains the many of the same ingredients as Cinnamon and Rehmannia Combination, except that ma-huang and deer antler gelatin are replaced by atractylodes (cangzhu and baizhu), aconite, raphanus (laifuzi), and perilla fruit (zisuzi). This pill treats the combined syndrome of deficiency of spleen and kidney yang(1833 ...
There are a couple of key characteristics that separate this group. First is the unusual flower/fruit arrangement-the fig itself. Known as a syconium in botanical lingo, the fig is an urn-shaped structure lined with tiny flowers on the inside. The flowers are pollinated by a specialized group of wasps that enter the syconium through an opening called an ostiole.. The second key characteristic are the paired stipules that enclose the developing leaf. Though these often drop off as the leaf begins to unfold, they leave a distinct scar at the base of the leaf. The stipules may be separate, or fused into one structure.. The third key characteristic is the sap: a striking white or yellow latex.. Other characteristics to note are: an alternate leaf arrangement, and typically, pinnate venation. All figs share these characteristics that, combined, distinguish them from other plant genera. How these characters are expressed are what makes the group so interesting. The syconium can be as large as a ...
