Carotenoid and tocochromanol profiles during kernel development make consumption of biofortified "fresh" maize an option to improve micronutrient nutrition.

Biofortification is a strategy to contribute reducing micronutrient malnutrition. The aim of this study was to investigate whether consumption of biofortified fresh maize can supply nutritionally mean...

β-Cryptoxanthin and zeaxanthin are highly bioavailable from whole-grain and refined biofortified orange maize in humans with optimal vitamin A status: a randomized, crossover, placebo-controlled trial.

Biofortification of staple crops with β-carotene is a strategy to reduce vitamin A deficiency, and several varieties are available in some African countries. β-Cryptoxanthin (BCX)-enhanced maize is ...

'Yellow is good for you': Consumer perception and acceptability of fortified and biofortified cassava products.

Vitamin A, an essential micronutrient for health, can be obtained from various food sources including cassava products made from either traditional white cassava varieties fortified with red palm oil ...

Egg Parasitoids of Dalbulus maidis (Hemiptera: Cicadellidae) Within Maize Agroecosystems and in the Edge Zones of Maize Fields, and on Maize Varieties During the Wet Season in Mexico.

Little is known about Dalbulus maidis (DeLong) egg parasitoids within maize fields, in the edge zones that surround these fields, and the parasitism on D. maidis eggs oviposited on different maize var...

Yield and kernel nutritional quality in normal maize and quality protein maize cultivars exposed to ozone.

Tropospheric ozone (O ) being phytotoxic impacts global food security. Present study investigated yield responses and kernel quality traits of two maize cultivars [DHM117: normal maize (NM)] and [HQPM...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

An order of basidiomycetous fungi; some species are parasitic on grasses (POACEAE) and maize.

The type species of genus Mastrevirus, family GEMINIVIRIDAE.

Discrete segments of DNA which can excise and reintegrate to another site in the genome. Most are inactive, i.e., have not been found to exist outside the integrated state. DNA transposable elements include bacterial IS (insertion sequence) elements, Tn elements, the maize controlling elements Ac and Ds, Drosophila P, gypsy, and pogo elements, the human Tigger elements and the Tc and mariner elements which are found throughout the animal kingdom.

Therapeutic practices which are not currently considered an integral part of conventional allopathic medical practice. They may lack biomedical explanations but as they become better researched some (PHYSICAL THERAPY MODALITIES; DIET; ACUPUNCTURE) become widely accepted whereas others (humors, radium therapy) quietly fade away, yet are important historical footnotes. Therapies are termed as Complementary when used in addition to conventional treatments and as Alternative when used instead of conventional treatment.

A mono-hydroxylated xanthophyll that is a provitamin A precursor.
