Seo, Byeong-Soo ; Kim, Sun-Young ; Park, Woo-Jin ; Choi, Chung-Ho ;
Korean Journal of Plant Resources, volume 20, issue 4, 2007, Pages 267~271
This study was carried out to examine optimal hot water treatment time in Albizzia julibrissin seeds. Germination and moisture absorption characteristics among intact seeds, immersed seeds for 24 hours in distilled water and hot water treated seeds were surveyed. As result, treated seeds showed a highly significant difference with intact and immersed seeds (p<0.0l). Especially, treated seed for 2.0 minutes represented the highest percent of germination (PG). But mean germination time (MGT) did not have significant difference between non-treatment and treatments (p=0.502). Germination speed and germination performance index showed similar tendency with PG. In percent of moisture absorption (PMA) and moisture absorption rate constant (MARC) treatments had higher values than non-treatment whereas 2.0 minutes treatment was lower than non-treatment in initial moisture absorption rate (IMAR). In relation between germination properties and moisture absorption characteristics, all properties except MGT among germination properties had high correlations with PMA and MARC (
,p<0.01) whereas IMAR didn't have correlation.

In order to presume the genetic relationship about two species and their 30 regional populations of the Saururus and Houttuynia of Saururaceae, RAPD analyses were performed. The length of amplified DNA fragments ranged from 300 to 2,000 bp. 156 scorable RAPD makers were found from PCR reactions with sixteen random oligoprimers. Also, some regional populations were clustered separately from the UPGMA phenogram. The OTUs between cultivated and natural populations were distinguished distinctly on the UPGMA phenogram. And the regionals populations of the treated taxa were clustered. Among the regional populations of two species, GN populations had the close relationship JJ populations rather than JN populations. The RAPD data was very useful to define the genetic relationship and distinguish the cultivated populations from natural populations by regional distributions in this study.

Korean Journal of Plant Resources, volume 20, issue 4, 2007, Pages 292~297
To explain the relationship between plant size and seed production, change of sexual organs, relationship between each organs of Convallaria keiskei population, which is located in Gwiyeo-2-ri, Namjong-myeon, Gwangju-si, Gyeonggi-do these were studied from April to August 2002. This study was carried out two ways. One way was to set up the permanent quadrat to explain the change of sexual organs. The other was to carry the collected sample to the laboratory and analysis it to explain the relationship between each organs and energy division of seed production. In the Convallaria keiskei population, the average number of leaf which blooming shoot in the permanent quadrat was 2 and I could find the late leaf size was larger. It was found that, per shoot, the average number of flower was 7.9, fruit was 5.4 and seed was 16.1. Each properties in the sexual organ, underground part size and leaf size, had correlation of 1% or within 5%. The flowering time of the Convallaria keiskei was from April 26 to May 11. Therefore, it can be estimated that the blooming period was
days in just one flower. Among that flowers bloom at the beginning May, 80% fruit at the end of May, and 68% fruit at the end of August. The dry weight of seed had more correlation dry weight of underground part than leaf area.

To examine taxonomic relationships among 24 leaf mustard allies (Brassica juncea) derived from domestic collections and introduced species, principal component analysis (PCA) and cluster analysis on 16 morphological characters were carried out. Of 16 characters, total fresh weight, total dry weight, shoot fresh weight and leaf length were useful characters for the understanding of taxonomic relationships among them. Cluster analysis using scores of the principal components indicated that 24 leaf mustards could be grouped into domestic collections and introduced species at 1.0 of average distance in UPGMA. Moreover, in experiment of
recombination test, heterosis appeared greatly in Sanchiohbachirimen takana A
Akaohba takana, Goheung namyang
Sanchiohbachirimen takana B, and Goheung namyang
Akaohba takana cross combinations. Sanchiohbachirimen takana A and Akaohba takana have a high parent combining ability for breeding cultivars using cytoplasmic male sterility.

This study was carried out to investigate geographic variation in needle characteristics of Pinus densiflora, one of the most economically important tree species in Korea. Needles were collected from 35 natural populations and their morphological and anatomical characteristics were studied. ANOVA showed statistically significant differences among populations as well as among individuals within populations in needle length, needle width, number of stomata row, density of stomata in
, number of serrations in 0.5mm, and number of resin ducts. In all these traits, variance components among individuals within populations were larger than those among populations. The density of stomata in
increased as the latitudes and elevations of the populations increased, while the number of serrations in 0.5mm decreased as the decrease of latitudes and elevations. The number of resin ducts was higher in inland populations than in coastal populations. The resin duct index appeared to be higher in western populations than in eastern populations. Cluster analysis based on morphological characteristics divided populations into three groups. The third group was composed of populations selected from the Taebaek mountains. The number of serrations in 0.5mm of this group was lower than that of other two groups, while the density of stomata in

Korean Journal of Plant Resources, volume 20, issue 4, 2007, Pages 342~347
The present study was conducted to examine the effect of prunus mume extract on the Kimchi fermentation. The physicochemical and microbiological properties of Kimchi with the addition of various levels(0, 0.1, 0.3 or 0.5%)of prunus mume extract was measured up to 30 days at
. pH was decreased sharply in control after 2 days . A typical decreasing pattern in pH values was noted in all treatments during the initial 18 days of fermentation followed by a gradual decrease afterwards. Total acidity was decreased by the addition of prunus mume extract. Reducing sugar content was reduced to approximately 70% by day 10-12 in prunus mume extract treatments. Total vitamin C content was reached to maximum on 6 days of fermentation and then decreased in all treatments. Reducing sugar and total vitamin C contents were slightly increased by the addition of prunus mume. Total viable cell number increased to reach peak on day 8 and then slowly decreased during the fermentation. Lactobacillus cell number in control treatment continued to increase to reach peak on day 12, while the numbers in prunus mume treatments reached peak on day 8-12 and then gradually decreased throughout the fermentation. The results of this study indicate that prunus mume extract causes to delay the Kimchi fermentation by slowing down pH drop and inhibiting the Lactobacillus cell growth.

The leaves of Ligularia stenocephala (Compositae) are used as a vegetable food to treat anxiety, weakness and menstrual disorder and are said to be effective against diabetic disease in Korea. This research was aimed to develop this vegetable food as a functional food to treat diabetic disease. Oral administration of MeOH extract exhibited significant hypoglycemic and hypolipidemic effects in streptozotocin (STZ)-induced diabetic rats at 100 and 200 mg/kg dose. This extract inhibited the increase of body weight, water consumption, food intake, blood glucose, lowered atherogenic index, and overcome glucose intolerance in the STZ-treated rat. These results suggest that the leaves of Ligularia stenocephala could be developed as a functional food with anti-diabetic effect.
