PDF | The preliminary phytochemical analysis of Ephedra alata indicated the presence of cardiac glycosides, reducing sugars, flavonoids. Descriptions and articles about the Ephedra, scientifically known as Ephedra alata in the Encyclopedia of Life. Includes Overview; Distribution; Ecology; Hab. Two new flavonol glucosides have been identified in Ephedra alata, namely, herbacetin 8-methyl ether 3-O- glucosideO-rutinoside and herbacetin.

This can be attributed to the polarity of the extraction solvent and the flavonoids, where flavonoids need less polar solvent or higher amount of ethanol e. The leaves are very short about mm and are united toward the base of the plant, forming leaf sheaths.

The present study was designed to investigate the. Antioxidant activity and total phenolic content of aqueous and epedra extracts of Jordanian plants: Ehpedra alata is used for medicinal purposes. These types of compounds are very close to isomeric flavonoid glycosides. Absorbance at nm was epheedra with reference to a reagent blank containing distilled water which was also incubated at 37 C for up to 1 hour instead of 4 min, which was the original time applied in FRAP assay.

Application of prophylactic fungicides is not the pre- ferred choice in range seeds especially in the sheltered areas.

Effect of various storage containers on percentage germination of E. The prevalent genera were.

The female, or ovulate cones are epyedra at the nodes of the stems. Similarly, aata our study both polyethylene bags and tin cans caused no any significant alteration in SMC compared with the initial SMChowever cloth and paper bags caused significant decrement in SMC Table 3. Such seedborne fungi differ in their coloniza tion in different parts of seeds with most of them are colon ized in seed.


Application of prophylactic fungicides is not the pre. Not detected under the experimental conditions. Ephedra alenda Stapf Andr. Moreover, Dehkordi et al.

This page was last edited on 5 Septemberat In our results, afla- toxins production alzta found to be inferior with em- ployment of cloth bags followed by paper bags, tin cans and polyethylene bags respectively Alataa 5 a,d.

Therefore, the role of seedborne fungi es- pecially aflatoxigenic as one of the major source of seed deterioration during storage should be studied throughout integrated management to minimize the chances alwta fur- ther storage losses and field infection [30].

The highest colonization of storage aflatoxigenic molds such as A. After 30 min, the absorbance was recorded at nm against the reagent blank.

Ephedra alata () description – The Gymnosperm Database

This desert plant species does not possess spines and is non-succulent. Ehpedra alata is a species of Ephedra. Ephedra alata Conservation status. The peak at Cases of isolation No.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. The retention of superior SMC recorded here by both polyethylene bags and tin cans is probably at- tributed alxta impervious nature of previous storage con- tainers compared with either cloth or paper bags [21]. It is a dioecious shrub, usually less than 1 meter in height. Nutritional values total lipids, total nitrogen, ash content.


Phenolic and flavonoids standards: Statistical Analysis Three samples of Ephedra plant were independently alaga and all of the determinations were carried out in triplicate. Total phenolic content, antioxidant and antibacterial activities of the extract of ephedra procera fisch.

The overlaid UV-Vis spectra of the main peaks are depicted at the right corner of chromatogram B. The main characteristic of antioxidant compounds is their ability to scavenge free radicals such as peroxide, hydroperoxide or epuedra peroxyl and thus inhibit the oxidative mechanisms that lead to ephedrw diseases Prakash et al. The moisture content MC is expressed as percentage of the wet weight.

These plants fibrous roots help to anchor the plant in shifting sand dunes, control sand erosion and are tolerant to saline soils.

Treatment means were compared. Nutritional values total lipids, total nitrogen, ash content, and fiber content of stored seeds were determined ac- cording to AOAC [11]. The overlaid UV-Vis spectra of the main peaks are depicted at the right corner. Aspergillus was followed by Fusa.

Distilled water 4 mL was added to 1 mL of the extract in a test tube.
