MEISEL, LEE et al. A Rapid and Efficient Method for Purifying High Quality Total RNA from Peaches (Prunus persica) for Functional Genomics Analyses. Biol. Res. [online]. 2005, vol.38, n.1, pp.83-88. ISSN 0716-9760. http://dx.doi.org/10.4067/S0716-97602005000100010.. Prunus persica has been proposed as a genomic model for deciduous trees and the Rosaceae family. Optimized protocols for RNA isolation are necessary to further advance studies in this model species such that functional genomics analyses may be performed. Here we present an optimized protocol to rapidly and efficiently purify high quality total RNA from peach fruits (Prunus persica). Isolating high-quality RNA from fruit tissue is often difficult due to large quantities of polysaccharides and polyphenolic compounds that accumulate in this tissue and co-purify with the RNA. Here we demonstrate that a modified version of the method used to isolate RNA from pine trees and the woody plant Cinnamomun tenuipilum is ideal for isolating high ...
Sour cherry (Prunus cerasus L.), has gained growing interest in recent years due to the envisaged health benefits associated with a regular intake of anthocyanins and related polyphenolic compounds. Turkish sour cherries are widely consumed as processed products and are renowned for their high juice quality. However, the phytochemistry of anthocyanins and other flavonoids in processed sour cherry products is still unclear. In the present study, we aim to investigate the effects of processing sour cherry fresh fruit to the final juice product on the content of anthocyanins and other related polyphenols. Kutahya , a local sour cherry cultivar, was processed to juice at laboratory scale using 5 different batches. The changes in moisture content, sugar content (qualitative and quantitative), procyanidin content and vitamin C content during processing were analysed. Furthermore, LC-QTOF-MS/MS based metabolomics and HPLC analyses were performed for the identification and quantification of individual ...
Sour cherry (Prunus cerasus L.) is rich in polyphenols, and like its processed products, is especially rich in anthocyanins. We have applied HPLC, spectrophotometric and on-line antioxidant detection methods to follow the fate of cherry antioxidants during an entire multi-step industrial-scale processing strategy. This was performed for 22 sampling points, with five independent repeats from a commercial cherry nectar production process. Anthocyanins contributed to ,50% of the total antioxidant capacity of the samples. An in vitro gastrointestinal (GI) digestion system was used to investigate serum availability of antioxidants. In this system anthocyanin bioavailability was much higher in the processed nectar than in the fresh fruit. Together these results indicate that processed sour cherry nectar is a rich source of stable antioxidants with high bioavailability, auguring well for the potential health-promoting capacity of sour cherry products.. ...
Much attention has been focused recently on functional foods. Ume, the Japanese name for the apricot of Prunus mume Sieb. et Zucc., is an example of a Japanese traditional functional food. There are, however, few reports on the effects of fiber from this fruit on bowel function. With this objective, we prepared ume fiber to test the hypothesis that it can change gut function and intestinal flora in mice. Mice were fed an ume fiber (UF) or cellulose (CF) diet (control) for 40 days. The fecal weight, fecal lipids, plasma lipids and cecal composition of the microflora were analyzed. The amount of feces was significantly greater in the UF group than in the CF group (p | 0.01). The fecal lipids content (% DW) of the feces sampled on the final days of the experiment were significantly greater in the UF group than in the CF group (p | 0.01). Plasma non-esterified fatty acids (NEFA) concentrations tended to be lower in the UF compared to the CF group (p = 0.058). Occupation ratios of Bacteroides and Clostridium
Sour cherry (P. cerasus) selections can be either self-compatible (SC) or self-incompatible (SI). As commercial cultivars must be SC to avoid the need for planting a pollinator, breeding for SC sour cherry cultivars is a high priority. The determination of whether a sour cherry cultivar is SI or SC is genetically controlled by the S-locus, a compound locus consisting of the stylar S-RNase and the pollen S, an F-box protein. Knowledge of the S-genotype of a sour cherry selection can be used to predict whether a selection is SI or SC. As previous research determined that any selection having a minimum of two non-functional S-haplotypes will be SC; S-genotyping is used in the Michigan State University (MSU) sour cherry breeding program to determine whether new selections are either SI or SC. Herein we detail the DNA diagnostic strategy used to determine S-genotypes of sour cherry and report the S-genotypes of four cultivars whose S-genotypes have not previously been reported ...

Many different varieties of Prunus salicina, some being hybrid species, are cultivated in China. Prunus salicina is also widely cultivated in Japan and Korea. The most famous variety of this fruit in Vietnam is the Tam Hoa plum grown in Bắc Hà town, in Lào Cai Province. Cultivars of the species were greatly improved in Japan and thence introduced into the United States in the latter half of the 19th century, where subsequent breeding produced many more cultivars, generally with larger fruit. Many of these American cultivars have been exported to other countries, including back to Japan, their ancestral place of origin. Most of the fresh plums sold in North American supermarkets are Prunus salicina cultivars. They are grown on a large scale in a number of other countries, for example, they dominate the stone fruit industry in Western Australia.[5] ...
There are about 150 species of cherries (Dzhangaliev et al. 2002).. The two most important species in terms of fruit production are the sweet cherry (Prunus avium) and the sour cherry (Prunus cerasus). They are said to be of ancient origin, perhaps coming from Armenia or near the Black Sea and Caspian Sea (Rhind 1865). Herbst (2001) states that the name cherry came from Cerasus, a Turkish town.. The main cherry for eating are cultivars of the sweet cherry, P. avium. The sweet cherry was derived from the wild cherry, P. avium. The stones of wild cherries have been found in deposits at bronze age settlements throughout Europe, including in Britain (Huxley 1992). By 800 B.C.E., cherries were being deliberately cultivated in Turkey, and soon after in Greece (Huxley 1992). The sweet cherry have firm, heart-shaped fruit that are good for eating out of hand or cooked (Herbst 2001).. The Sour Cherry (P. cerasus) is closely related to the wild cherry, P. avium, but has a fruit which is more acidic, and ...

Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil, better known as Sweet Almond Oil, is derived from the fruits of the almond tree. Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis, also known as the Almond Tree, has been cultivated for thousands of years in India and in the Middle East. People have revered it for skin care and for culinary reasons throughout the ages. The use of almonds in skin care and beauty can date all the way back to the ancient Hindus. The ancient Hindu civilization used to make a paste from crushed almonds and then use it as a natural cleanser for the body.. Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis might fall in the same family as cherry, plum and peach trees, but it doesnt offer a fleshy fruit. As a deciduous tree, the Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis is famous for its almonds, fruits that have an exterior hull, a seed in the center and an interior shell. Apart from skin care, almonds are used in cookies, candies and breads as well.. Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis Oil is pressed from the nut kernels of the Sweet Almond Tree. This oil is a ...

In the present study, we have assessed the diversity of mtDNA and cpDNA in addition to the phylogenetic relationships between Prunus genotypes that might be helpful for identifying populations and their relationships [34]. Information on polymorphic DNA in organelle genomes is necessary for evolutionary investigations [23,35]. Though, it is demanding to perform high-throughput analysis on mitochondrial and chloroplast DNA polymorphisms [36,37]. Researchers in the past have used numerous non-coding cpDNA regions to obtain adequate characters for phylogenetic resolution [38-40]. At low taxonomic levels, some non-coding cpDNA regions might show sufficient variation for phylogenetic resolution while others did not [41,42]. The genetic diversity explained by SSR markers in the studied genotypes ranged from 0.35 to 0.85 which is quite acceptable. Our results showed that there is a complete association between Cherry and plum genotypes in both mtSSR and cpSSRs, though there is a low similarity index of ...
An apricot is a fruit, or the tree that bears the fruit, of several species in the genus Prunus (stone fruits). Usually, an apricot tree is from the species P. armeniaca, but the species P. brigantina, P. mandshurica, P. mume, and P. sibirica are closely related, have similar fruit, and are also called apricots. The scientific name armeniaca was first used by Gaspard Bauhin in his Pinax Theatri Botanici (1623), referring to the species as Mala armeniaca "Armenian apple". Linnaeus took up Bauhins epithet in the first edition of his Species Plantarum in 1753, Prunus armeniaca. Apricot derives from praecocia (praecoquus) as "cooked or ripened beforehand" [in this case meaning early ripening], and from Greek πραικόκιον (praikókion) as "apricot". The English name first appeared in the 16th century as abrecock from the Middle French aubercot or later abricot, from Catalan a(l)bercoc. The apricot is a small tree, 8-12 m (26-39 ft) tall, with a trunk up to 40 cm (16 in) in diameter and a ...
Japanese apricot (Prunus mume) originated in south-eastern China and is one of the major fruit trees in Japan. The major cultivars of Japanese apricot are self-incompatible. Self-incompatibility of Japanese apricot is gametophytic, the same as other Prunus species. Since S-genotype of every cultivar remained unclear until now, we examined molecular markers to determine S-genotype which was explored based on the information about S-RNase of other Prunus spiecies. Total DNA isolated from six cultivars was PCR-amplified by oligonucleotide primers designed from conserved region of Prunus S-RNase Every six cultivars yielded two amplified bands. In total, seven kind of polymorphism in molecular size were determined among those six cultivar, controlled pollination tests were carried out among cultivars that showed same band pattern, and these cross-combinations indicated cross-incompatibility. So, we were made clear that S-genotype of Japanese apricot could effectively and easily be determined by PCR ...

Prunus persica L. Batch, or peach, is one of the most important crops and it is widely established in irrigated arid and semi-arid regions. However, due to variations in the climate and the increased aridity, drought has become a major constraint, causing crop losses worldwide. The use of drought-tolerant rootstocks in modern fruit production appears to be a useful method of alleviating water deficit problems. However, the transcriptomic variation and the major molecular mechanisms that underlie the adaptation of drought-tolerant rootstocks to water shortage remain unclear. Hence, in this study, high-throughput sequencing (RNA-seq) was performed to assess the transcriptomic changes and the key genes involved in the response to drought in root tissues (GF677 rootstock) and leaf tissues (graft, var. Catherina) subjected to 16 days of drought stress. In total, 12 RNA libraries were constructed and sequenced. This generated a total of 315M raw reads from both tissues, which allowed the assembly of 22,079
Crown gall disease caused by Agrobacterium tumefaciens severely impacts the production of peach and other fruit trees. Several peach cultivars are partially resistant to A. tumefaciens, but little is known about the roles of endophytic microbiota in disease resistance. In the present study, the endophytic bacterial communities of resistant and susceptible peach cultivars Honggengansutao and Okinawa were analyzed using universal 16S rRNA gene amplicon sequencing in parallel with cultivation and characterization of bacterial isolates. A total of 1,357,088 high-quality sequences representing 3,160 distinct OTUs (Proteobacteria, Actinobacteria, Bacteroidetes, and Firmicutes) and 1,200 isolates of 20 genera and 305 distinct ribotypes were collected from peach roots and twigs. It was found that factors including plant developmental stage, cultivar, and A. tumefaciens invasion strongly influenced the peach endophytic communities. The community diversity of endophytic bacteria and the abundance of ...

Almond (Prunus amygdalus) is small bushy deciduous tree that is cultivated for its edible nut. Almond is an important food crop and a major ingredient in manufactured food products.
Translated from Latin, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis means sweet almond oil and is one of the most frequently used carrier oils and most adaptable body oils for beauty products and massage. Cultivated thousands of years ago, sweet almond oil is extracted from ripe seed kernels that have been dried and crushed through a cold pressing process. Today almonds can be used in anything from exfoliants (using the nut or the kernel as a mechanical exfoliant), used as an emulsifying agent to bind oil and water or as a skin-conditioning product to help soften and hydrate. Pure sweet almond oil contains countless nutrients including calcium, magnesium, phosphorous, and vitamin E. These essential vitamins nurture the skin on the outside and when applied topically, promote softer, more nourished skin.. ...
Abstract: Prunus domestica L. is the most important fruit crop in the Europe and the most important within the genus Prunus. Serbia is the third world producer, after USA and China, of that friut. The seven F1 plum genotypes (Prunus domestica L.) which originated from three cross-combinations (Č ačanska Lepotica × Stanley, Č ačanska Najbolja × Stanley, Stanley × Stanley) and these cultivars as controls were planted in the experimental orchard in Prislonica, near Cacak, in spring 2000. In 2005-2007 several biological (blooming period, harvest date and yield) and main fruit quality traits were evaluated. Considerable variation was observed among the F1 genotypes, i.e. cross-combinations. All genotypes begun blooming later than their parents. The earliest harvest date was observed in P4 and the latest in P7. The highest yield was observed in P5. The genotype P4 had better values for some fruit quality traits (fruit weight, fruit rate, flash rate, fruit height, suture ...
Background: Numerous antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents have been identified in tart cherries.. Objective: To test the efficacy of a tart cherry juice blend in preventing the symptoms of exercise induced muscle damage.. Methods: This was a randomised, placebo controlled, crossover design. Fourteen male college students drank 12 fl oz of a cherry juice blend or a placebo twice a day for eight consecutive days. A bout of eccentric elbow flexion contractions (2 × 20 maximum contractions) was performed on the fourth day of supplementation. Isometric elbow flexion strength, pain, muscle tenderness, and relaxed elbow angle were recorded before and for four days after the eccentric exercise. The protocol was repeated two weeks later with subjects who took the placebo initially, now taking the cherry juice (and vice versa). The opposite arm performed the eccentric exercise for the second bout to avoid the repeated bout protective effect.. Results: Strength loss and pain were significantly less in ...

Apricot (Prunus armeniaca L.) leaves were studied to assess the potential of apricot leaves for future studies and their applications in nutraceutical and bioactive functional ingredients. The changes in the phenolic profile, carotenoids, pigments and antioxidant potential were studied at four maturation stages. Polyphenols and carotenoids were studied using reversed-phase HPLC-DAD. Pigments, total phenolic contents and radical scavenging activity were also measured. Results revealed twelve phenolic compounds in the apricot leaves. The major phenolic compounds were 3-O-caffeoylquinic acid (14.6-49.6 mg/g), 4-O-caffeoylquinic acid (0.56-7.5 mg/g), 5-O-caffeoylquinic acid (5.6-25.7 mg/g) and quercetin-3-O-glucosides (8.6-19.9 mg/g), while others include caffeic acid and derivatives of coumaric acid and kaempferol. Significant changes were observed in polyphenolic compounds during maturation. Lutein (56.7-65.7 µg/g), neoxanthin (0.66-4.79 µg/g), 5,6-epoxy-α-carotene (5.89-7.9 µg/g), and β-carotene (12
Did you know that the humble black cherry is actually a member of the rose family? Black cherries are more than just wonderful in jams, ice cream, pies, and as a garnish in your favorite cocktail: they are an excellent source of powerful antioxidants that help to neutralize the damaging, age-accelerating effects of free radicals.**. Black cherries may supply far more nutritional benefits than antioxidant activity alone, however. New research into the health benefits of black cherries has discovered that there are certain properties of all cherries which seem to help modulate inflammation and inhibit inflammatory pathways. A 2003 study found that black cherry was associated with a reduction of CRP (C-reactive protein) in the bloodstream, which is an inflammatory bio-marker.**. Black cherries have been found to support joint comfort, thanks to their inflammation-modulating and antioxidant properties. A high concentration of antioxidants known as anthocyanins, which give black cherries their deep, ...
The genus Prunus includes the almond, apricot, cherry, peach, and plum, all of which have cultivars developed for commercial fruit production. The edible part of the almond is the seed; the almond fruit is a drupe and not a "nut". There are also a number of species, hybrids, and cultivars grown strictly as ornamentals, usually for their profusion of flowers, occasionally for leaves and bark. These ornamentals include the group that may be collectively called flowering cherries. Because of their considerable value as both food and ornamental plants, many Prunus species have been introduced to parts of the world to which they are not native. Many of the Old World species are grown for ornament or fruit, and have been planted throughout the world; and some have become naturalised beyond their native range. ...
Researchers continue to explore the benefits of superfruits, a unique group of nutrient-rich fruits that contain natural compounds shown to have potential disease-fighting properties. Few fruits fall into this category and emerging science shows tart cherries (technically known as Prunus cerasus) are among them. Tart cherries are rich in antioxidants and contain potent phytonutrients including anthocyanins - plant pigments that have been linked to a variety of health benefits - and melatonin.. Tart cherries are one of the few known food sources of melatonin, a potent antioxidant that helps improve the bodys circadian rhythms and natural sleep patterns (Burkhardt 2001). Specifically, Montmorency Cherries may contain as much as 6x the amount of Melatonin of a regular cherry. A study conducted by Dr. Russel Reiter and Colleagues at the University of Texas Health Science Center found that tart cherries contain substantial amounts of melatonin.... Produced naturally by the bodys pineal gland at ...
In general, plant root zone expansion is a highly desirable outcome for any cultural or product-based aspect of crop production. Roots are a plants lifeline to water and nutrients that directly affect productivity. MycoApply® biorational soil health products, based on a four-species consortium of beneficial arbuscular mycorrhizal fungi (AMF), achieve this goal by expanding the plants absorption area through branching AMF filaments, or hyphae, that extend well beyond the reach of the roots. Studies show mycorrhizae expand root absorption area by up to 50x.. In stone fruit, newly planted transplant establsishment is essential to increase the return on investment of new plantings. MycoApply helps establish new trees, especially weak cultivars and rootstocks, into production sooner as well as an increased survival rate. Established stone fruit trees benefit from symbiosis relationships with mycorrhizal fungi for nutrient and water absorption as root systems become less efficient. As a result of ...

Peach (Prunus persica L.) is a highly valuable crop species and is recognized by molecular researchers as a model fruit for the Rosaceae family. Using whole-genome sequencing data generated from 129 peach accessions, here we perform a comprehensive genome-wide association study for 12 key agronomic traits. We show that among the 10 qualitative traits investigated, nine exhibit consistent and more precise association signals than previously identified by linkage analysis. For two of the qualitative traits, we describe candidate genes, one potentially involved in cell death and another predicted to encode an auxin-efflux carrier, that are highly associated with fruit shape and non-acidity, respectively. Furthermore, we find that several genomic regions harbouring association signals for fruit weight and soluble solid content overlapped with predicted selective sweeps that occurred during peach domestication and improvement. Our findings contribute to the large-scale characterization of genes controlling
The genus Prunus includes the almond, the nectarine and peach, several species of apricots, cherries, and plums, all of which have cultivars developed for commercial fruit and nut production. The almond is not a true nut; the edible part is the seed. Other species are occasionally cultivated or used for their seed and fruit. A number of species, hybrids, and cultivars are grown as ornamental plants, usually for their profusion of flowers, sometimes for ornamental foliage and shape, and occasionally for their bark. The Tree of 40 Fruit has 40 varieties grafted on to one rootstock.[14][15]. Species such as blackthorn (Prunus spinosa), are grown for hedging, game cover, and other utilitarian purposes. The wood of some species (notably black cherry) is prized as a furniture and cabinetry timber, especially in North America. Many species produce an aromatic resin from wounds in the trunk; this is sometimes used medicinally. Other minor uses include dye production. Pygeum, a herbal remedy containing ...

Rodzaj Prunus zaliczany jest tradycyjnie do podrodziny Amygdaloideae (= Prunoideae) w obrębie rodziny różowatych. Podrodzina ta obejmuje obok śliwy jeszcze 3 rodzaje, które wyróżniają się także owocem w postaci pestkowca z pojedynczą twardą pestką otoczoną mięsistą owocnią - Maddenia Hook. f. & Thomson, Oemleria Reichb. i Prinsepia Royle[3]. Klasyfikacja taksonów w obrębie szeroko ujmowanego obecnie rodzaju Prunus była od dawna kontrowersyjna i różnie przedstawiana przez różnych autorów. W 1700 de Tournefort zaliczył należące tu gatunki do 6 rodzajów, wyodrębniając je na podstawie różnic w budowie owoców: Amygdalus, Armeniaca, Cerasus, Laurocerasus, Persica i Prunus. Klasyfikacja ta częściowo została przyjęta przez Linneusza, który w 1753 wyróżnił trzy, a w 1754 cztery rodzaje: Amygdalus, Cerasus, Prunus i Padus. Kolejni taksonomowie uzupełniali tę listę wyróżniając nowe rodzaje lub łączyli je w różny sposób. Po raz pierwszy pomysł scalenia ...
