To evaluate agronomic characteristics for the use of biodiesel crop, 328 collections of sunflower (Helianthus annus L.) were obtained from Genebank in Rural Development Adminstration (RDA). The necessary days from seeding to emergence of collections were from 7 to 12 days, and the days to flowering were widely distributed from 55 to 86 days. Stem length ranged from 131 to 345 cm with a mean of 259 cm, and the mean maturing days were 35 days. The number of head flower was 1~23 ea per plant, and the mean size of head flower was 17.6 cm with a range from 14.7 to 21.3 cm (72.8%). The mean seed number per head flower was 1,430 ea, and the weight of seed per plant ranged from 23 to 379 g with a mean of 91.4 g. The mean seed length was 11.7 mm with a range from 9.0 to 21.5 mm, and the mean diameter was 6.4 mm. The mean weight of seed per litter, 1000 grain weight and seed weight per plant were 322.5 g, 63.3 g and 204 g, respectively. Variation of number of head per plant was largest and weight of grain per plant was large in next among growth and grain characteristics. At the results of correlation analysis among characteristics, the seed diameter was getting bigger and the days for flowering dates were prolonged in the higher stem length plant, but the days to maturing and growth duration was shortened.

This experiment was conducted to establish the micropropagation of Calanthe discolor through multiple shoot formation from the culture of leaf, corm and root explants. Frequency of adventitious shoot formation from leaf explants was higher than those of corms and root explants. Frequency of adventitious shoot formation on medium with various concentrations of BA (0. 1.0, 3.0, and 5.0 mg/L) and NAA (0, 0.1, 0.5, and 1.0 mg/L) was tested. The maximun induction of adventitious shoot was obtained on half strength Murashige and Skoog (MS) medium supplemented with 3.0 mg/L BA and 1.0 mg/L NAA after 6 weeks of culture. Multiple shoots were transferred onto half strength MS medium with various concentrations of GA3 (0, 0.1, 0.5, 1.0, 3.0, and 5.0 mg/L). The number and length of multiple shoots on medium were highest on medium with 3.0 mg/L GA3. All the adventitious shoot grew well and rooted on half strength MS medium with 3.0 mg/L NAA. The plantlets were acclimatized up to 100% on sand with TKS-II or pearlite with TKS-II.

Rosmarinic acid, an ester of caffeic acid with 3,4-dihydroxyphenyl lactic acid, is one of the main active constituents of Agastache rugosa Kuntze and has an astringent property, antioxidant capacity, anti-inflammatory activity, antimutagenic ability, antimicrobial capacity, and an antiviral property. Five different strains of Agrobacterium rhizogenes differed in their ability to induce Korean mint (Agastache rugosa Kuntze) hairy roots and also showed varying effects on the growth and rosmarinic acid production in hairy root cultures. A. rhizogenes R1601 is the most effective strain for the induction (72.90%), growth (13.50 g/l) and rosmarinic acid production (22.60 mg/g) in hairy root of Korean mint. Our results demonstrate that use of suitable strains of A. rhizogenes may allow study of the regulation of rosmarinic acid biosynthesis in hairy root cultures of Agastache rugosa.

This study was conducted to clarify effects on the germination, survival rate of seedlings, growth and variation induction of variants in gamma rays irradiated seed of lilac pink (Dianthus superbus var. longicalycinus) and nursery spiraea (Caryopteris incana). Seed germination and its germination rate were delayed over 90 Gy for lilac pink and 80 Gy for nursery psiraea. Fifty percent lethal time (LT50) level for lilac pink and nursery psiraea were 150 Gy and 100 Gy, respectively. Lilac pink and nursery psiraea were grown dwarf over 120 Gy treatment. We have produced 17 variants of lilac pink in
generation, and selected the promising 4 variants in
generation. We have also made 7 variants of nursery psiraea in
generation, and selected the favorable 8 variants in

This study was carried out to understand the effect of low temperature(
), heat shock(
) and drought stresses on the growth and gene expression of Arabidopsis ATSIZ3(at1g08910) mutants. The seedling growth of SIZ3-mutants were markedly inhibited by the treatment of heat shock or chilling stresses. However, there was no significant differences between wild type and SIZ3-mutants in seeding fresh weight. As compared to wild type plants, SIZ3-mutants showed 63.9% inhibition of seedling fresh weight by the treatment of 10 days drought stress, suggesting that SIZ3 is involved in the resistance of Arabidopsis to drought stress. Base on RT-PCR analysis, expression of SIZ3 mRNA in the wild type showed 20% inhibition by chilling stress, 3.7 and 4.5 fold increase by the treatment of heat shock or drought stresses, respectively.

Korean Journal of Plant Resources, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 31~37
It was investigated that morphological characteristics of leaf and stomata, chlorophyll contents and wood anatomy characteristics in Schisandra chinensis, Schisandra nigra and Kadsura japonica. Leaf morphological characteristics were significant at 5% levels within the species and within the individuals as a male, a female and monoecious. K. japonica was the longest in the leaf length, followed by S. chinensis and S. nigra. For the leaf length among S. nigra individuals, the female was longer than male and monoecious. As for the Petiole length, S. nigra was twice longer than S. chinensis and K. japonica. Stomata length was ranged from
for S. nigra,
for S. chinensis,
for K. japonica. S. nigra was longer than the others in length and width, while its stomata density was lower than the others. The size of vessel elements and xylem fiber showed a similar tendency to stomata, significant at 5% levels within S. nigra individuals (male, female and monoecious). Chlorophyll contents were also variable in inter and intra species and in general K. japonica showed higher levels of chlorophyll contents than Schisandra spp. plants.

Phenolic compound contents and scavenging activity on DPPH and ABTS radicals in twelve fern species were studied by analysing ultrasonification extraction of dried aerial parts and rhizomes using methanol solvent. Total polyphenol content ranged from 2.97 to 140.1 mg per 1 g dried sample and 0.80 to
fresh sample. Highest polyphenol content was obtained with aerial part of Davallia mariesii and Polystichum lepidocaulon. Total flavonoid content of dried sample was
and fresh sample
. Higher flavonoids were obtained with dried aerial part of Dryopteris crassirhizoma, but with fresh aerial part of P. lepidocaulon. In general, total polyphenol content was higher in rhizomes, except in case of total flavonoid. Scavenging effects on DPPH and ABTS radicals was higher with rhizome extracts compared to aerial parts. The rhizome of Polystichum polyblepharum showed highest effects on both radicals. However, the amount of fresh sample for
with consideration of water content and extraction yield. P. lepidocaulon aerial part was more advantageous than P. polyblepharum rhizome. All the fern extracts except for the Coniogramme japonica extract demonstrated superior scavenging effects on ABTS radicals, being similar activity of ascorbic acid and BHT.

Woo, Jeong-Hyang ; Shin, So-Lim ; Lee, Cheol-Hee ;
Korean Journal of Plant Resources, volume 23, issue 1, 2010, Pages 47~53
Flowers and shoots of three species of Dendranthema boreale, Dendranthema indicum, Dendranthema zawdskii var. lucidum, were extracted with 80% ethanol by reflux, and polyphenol content, scavenging activity on DPPH and ABTS radicals, ferrous ion chelating effects and inhibition effects on lipid peroxidation were analyzed. Total polyphenol and flavonoid contents were highest in D. zawdskii var. lucidum, especially in the flower part. Scavenging activity on DPPH and ABTS was also highest in D. zawdskii var. lucidum flower with less activity in shoot. Ferrous ion chelating effects was highest with D. boreale flower and lowest in D. zawdskii var. lucidum flower. Inhibition activity on lipid peroxidation was highest in D. zawdskii var. lucidum shoot with 41.01% inhibition activity showing 32 days after reaction, which is higher than synthetic antioxidant BHT. Due to higher antioxidant level and activity of shoot and flower of D. zawdskii var. lucidum is promising material for natural plant antioxidant. It was also shown that antioxidant activity is different according to plant part ever in same plant, and proper plant species should be used for antioxidant after careful studies.

The objective of present study was to investigate the effect of Baikal Skullcap (Scutellaria baicalensis Georgi) extracts on recovery of liver function in
-exposed rats. The values of RBC, Hb and PCV did not show significant difference among all treatment groups. The counts of WBC was lower in Skullcap extracts groups than in control group. The ratio of neutrophils and eosinophiles were decreased, and the ratio of lymphocytes and monocytes were increased with increased administration of Skullcap extracts dosage. The ratio of basophils was, however, not significantly different among all treatment groups. The concentration of plasma total protein and albumin showed no significant difference among all treatment groups. The ratio of albumin/globulin was higher in Skullcap extracts groups than in control group. The activities of GOT, GPT and LDH were lower in Skullcap extracts groups, compared to control group. The liver IL-
, IL-6 and TNF-
concentration were decreased, and IL-10 was increased in Skullcap extract groups, compared to control group. Results of this study suggested that Skullcap may alleviate liver inflammatory reaction induced by liver toxicity.
