This report describes the evaluation of their potential chemopreventive activity, along with other cyclitols.
L-( +)-Bornesitol (1) is a methyl myoinositol derivative belonging to the class of natural products named carbasugars or cyclitols (Endringer et al.
The reviewed data show that cyclitols are promising bioactive compounds, with ample physiologic acceptance.
Soluble oligosaccharides and galactosyl cyclitols in maturing soybean seeds in planta and in vitro.
We hoped to determine if cyclitols were directly unloaded from maternal tissues to soybean embryos, if free cyclitol concentrations were higher in maternal tissues than they were in embryonic tissues, and if galactosyl cyclitol concentrations in seeds increased as free cyclitol concentrations in maternal tissues increased.
The major explant feeding experiment was designed to quantify the accumulation of cyclitol galactosides in mature, dry seeds after feeding solutions containing free cyclitol substrates to soybean explants.
Because buffer, salts, and mannitol (Thorne and Rainbird, 1983) interfered with cyclitol analysis, unloaded compounds were collected in water.
Trial A ([dagger]) Recovery Cyclitol Applied Recovered ([section]) -- mg -- % Pinitol 499.
Recently, there has been commercial interest in providing cyclitols as dietary supplements or as insulin substitutes (see http://www.
The lack of association between yellowing of axis tissues and galactosyl cyclitol accumulation during in vitro culture of zygotic embryos, indicates that loss of green color is independent of the biosynthesis of soluble galactosyl oligomers.
