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
Cuscuta reflexa is a perennial herb belonging to the Convolvulaceae family and is widely used as a valuable herbal drug in traditional medicine. Cuscuta chinensis, another species of Cuscuta , is traded under the same name in the local markets and is an identified adulterant of the genuine herbal drug, C. reflexa. In this study, we have developed sequence characterized amplified region (SCAR) markers to discriminate C. reflexa from its adulterant C. chinensis. The RAPD amplicons of 690 bp and 576 bp specific to C. reflexa and C. chinensis, respectively, were selected. The RAPD bands were converted into SCAR by designing specific internal primers (SCAR primers) for these sequences. The SCAR primer sets amplified 589 bp- and 464 bp-sized SCAR markers from C. reflexa and C. chinensis genomic DNA, respectively. The detection efficiency of designed SCAR primers was evaluated by mixing the powdered seed samples of both species in different ratios and amplifying DNAs extracted from these mixed seed samples

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. ...

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.
Corchorus prostratus Royle. A mat-forming, prostrate, much branched woody perennial. Stem diffusely branched from woody rootstock, young branches sparsely hairy, older ones glabrous. Leaves 3-costate, elliptic to broadly elliptic, 4-18 (-20) mm long, 2-9 (-10) mm broad, glabrous except the scattered hairy costae, plicate in bud, crenate-serrate, without basal setose appendages, obtuse; petiole 1.5-2.5 cm long, filiform, minutely hairy; stipules linear-falcate, c. 2 mm long. Cyme mostly 2(-1)-flowered, antiphyllous, peduncle minute. Flowers yellow, 6-8 mm across, pedicel c. 1 mm long; bracts linear-lanceolate, c. 1.5 mm long. Sepals yellowish-green, linear-oblong, 3-4 mm long, spreading, acute. Petals obovate-spathulate, as long as sepals, obtuse. Stamens 8-10, filaments c. 4 mm long, erect.

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.
