Lipid-dissolved γ-carotene, β-carotene, and lycopene in globular chromoplasts of peach palm (Bactris gasipaes Kunth) fruits
High levels of β-carotene, lycopene, and the rare γ-carotene occur predominantly lipid-dissolved in the chromoplasts of peach palm fruits. First proof of their absorption from these fruits is reported. The structural ...
Transcription analysis of softening-related genes during postharvest of papaya fruit (Carica papaya L. ‘Pococí’ hybrid)
Fruit of Carica papaya L. (papaya) has several post-harvest problems mainly caused by quick softening that reduces its shelf life. This softening is directly related to degradation and modification of cell wall oligosaccharides. ...
Carotenoids and carotenoid esters of orange- and yellow-fleshed mamey sapote ( Pouteria sapota (Jacq.) H.E. Moore & Stearn) fruit and their post-prandial absorption in humans
Although different genotypes of mamey sapote with distinct pulp colors are consumed in countries from Central to South America, in-depth knowledge on genotype-related differences of their carotenoid profile is lacking. ...
Characterization of Mesocarp and Kernel Lipids from Jacq., [Kunth] Cortés, and Their Interspecific Hybrids
Morphological traits, total lipid contents, and fatty acid profiles were assessed in fruits of several accessions of Elaeis oleifera [Kunth] Cortes,́ Elaeis guineensis Jacq., and their interspecific hybrids. The latter ...
Improved high-efficiency protocol for somatic embryogenesis in Peach Palm (Bactris gasipaes Kunth) using RITA® temporary immersion system
Bactris gasipaes Kunth (Arecaceae) is an Amazonian palm cultivated mainly for the production of fruits and heart of palm. Biotechnological tools based on somatic embryogenesis (SE) can be used for improvement and germplasm ...

Asexual propagation bluebush (Justicia tinctoria (Oerst.) D.N. Gibson, Fam. Acanthaceae) by cuttings
Se evaluó el efecto de dosis de ácido indolbutírico (0, 500, 1000 o 1500 ppm), la posición de donde se toma la estaca (basal, medial o terminal), el tamaño de la estaca (6, 10 o 14 cm), la ausencia o ...
Identification of phenolic compounds in soursop (Annona muricata) pulp by high-performance liquid chromatography with diode array and electrospray ionization mass spectrometric detection
Soursop (Annona muricata L., Annonaceae) is a neotropical fruit species producing large fruits that can be consumed fresh and mainly processed. While the leaves, roots and stems of this species have been the subject of ...
Vanilla protoplasts: isolation and electrofusion
The vanilla plant is an orchid mainly commercialized for the production of vanillin. This compound is considered the second largest natural flavoring source in the world. In recent years, ...
Papaya (Carica papaya) is a semiwoody, usually single-stemmed, herbaceous plant (Fig. 1). It originated along the Caribbean lowlands of Mesoamerica and is now extensively and exclusively distributed in tropical and subtropical ...
