Apocarotenoids of Crocus sativus L: From biosynthesis to by Shoib Ahmad Baba,Nasheeman Ashraf

By Shoib Ahmad Baba,Nasheeman Ashraf

This ebook is a made from years of analysis on saffron biology. It intends to provide a extensive yet concise overview of many of the points of apocarotenoid biosynthesis in Crocus sativus, its legislation and pharmacology .

Crocus sativus L. of family Iridaceae is a vital medicinal plant. The dried stigma of C. sativus flower is taken into account because the world's most expensive spice. Saffron is the assets of distinctive carotenoid derived molecules called apocarotenoids which contain crocin, crocetin, picrocrocin and safranal. those molecules are synthesized within the tissue and developmental level particular manner. Besides delivering color, aroma and flavour to the spice, those molecules have great medicinal importance. 

The publication uncovers significant thoughts of apocarotenoids biosynthesis and gives deeper and extra whole figuring out approximately their biotechnological and pharmacological applications.

The ebook is split into 3 sections –

The first part offers a basic creation of C. sativus, its apocarotenoids, their biosynthesis, rules and delivery. moment part presents information regarding the carotenoid cleavage dioxygenases (CCDs) that are the foremost gamers in apocarotenoid biosynthesis. The type of plant CCDs, their constitution, response mechanism, biotechnological program are completely mentioned. the ultimate part offers with the main pharmacological houses of C. sativus apocarotenoids, starting from their position as anticancer to their software as neuroprotective molecules.

This is a one among its sort e-book on Crocus sativus. It might be valuable for the researchers operating on Crocus sativus, students and in addition practitioners eager about extraction and bio-synthesis of the valuable scientific components.
