The aim is to investigate the effects of yoghurt drinks containing two doses of plant stanol ester either with or without added camelina oil on the serum cholesterol levels in moderately h...
This study aims to explore whether the increased supply of dietary plant sterols and plant stanols have any influence on serum levels of phytosterols and on consistency of carotid atheroma...
This randomized controlled double-blind intervention study unravels influence of dietary plant sterols and stanols on the structure and the sterol composition of the human aortic valve. Th...
The purpose of randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled study was to determine whether yoghurt drink containing 2g plant stanols (3.4g as plant stanol esters) is effective in the contr...
This study aims to measure the effect of three different doses of plant stanols in margarine on the cholesterol absorption efficiency in subjects with mildly to moderately increased serum ...
Dietary plant sterols and stanols as present in our diet and in functional foods are well-known for their inhibitory effects on intestinal cholesterol absorption, which translates into lower low-densi...
The crescent knowledge in the microbiology field guided by microbiome studies has renewed interest in microbes that interact with the plant host in a beneficial manner, especially those that live in t...
Plant immunity is constituted by multilayered system involving two intertwined lines of defence: a first level of immunity termed PAMP-triggered immunity (PTI) or basal resistance, and a second layer ...
G-quadruplex (G-Q) is advanced DNA or RNA secondary structures frequently found in plant and involved in important biological processes such as transcription, translation, and telomere maintenance. Al...
Auxin is one of the most important plant hormones controlling various aspects of plant growth and development. Here, we highlight three recent papers that shed light on how local auxin biosynthesis co...
A localized proliferation of plant tissue forming a swelling or outgrowth, commonly with a characteristic shape and unlike any organ of the normal plant. Plant tumors or galls usually form in response to the action of a pathogen or a pest. (Holliday, P., A Dictionary of Plant Pathology, 1989, p330)
Substances released by PLANTS such as PLANT GUMS and PLANT RESINS.
Improving the NUTRITIONAL VALUE of plant foods by augmenting the plant's environment, by using PLANT BREEDING, or by GENETIC ENGINEERING plants to increase their ability to synthesize VITAMINS or uptake essential NUTRIENTS from the soil.
The process of germ cell development in plants, from the primordial PLANT GERM CELLS to the mature haploid PLANT GAMETES.
A plant genus of the family ASTERACEAE. This plant should not be confused with microtubule asters (MICROTUBULES) nor with aster yellows phytoplasma (mycoplasma-like organisms).
