Water-soluble antioxidant potential of melon lines grown in Turkey
(Taylor & Francis, 2012-01)
The antioxidant potential of 42 melon (Cucumis melo) lines including six cultivars grown in Turkey was assessed by measuring total water-soluble antioxidant capacity, phenolic and vitamin C contents. The lines showed ...
Salt tolerance in Solanum pennellii: Antioxidant response and related QTL
(BioMed Central, 2010-04)
Background: Excessive soil salinity is an important problem for agriculture, however, salt tolerance is a complex trait that is not easily bred into plants. Exposure of cultivated tomato to salt stress has been reported ...
Molecular genetic diversity in the Turkish national melon collection and selection of a preliminary core set
(American Society for Horticultural Science, 2013-01)
Turkey is a secondary center of diversity for melon (Cucumis melo) and is home to a variety of regional morphotypes. This diversity is housed in a national germplasm repository with more than 500 accessions. Molecular ...
Total antioxidant activity and total phenolic contents in different turkish eggplant (Solanum Melongena L.) cultivars
(Taylor & Francis, 2009-07)
In this study, total water soluble antioxidant activity and phenolic content of 26 eggplant (Solanum melongena L.) cultivars were investigated. Total water soluble antioxidant activity of the cultivars varied from 2664 to ...
Quantitative trait loci (QTL) analysis for antioxidant and agronomically important traits in tomato (Lycopersicon esculentum)
Tomato is one of the most widely produced and consumed vegetable crops worldwide. Plant breeders have usually focused on improvement of horticulturally important traits such as yield, fruit size, shape and colour. With ...
Water-soluble antioxidant potential of Turkish pepper cultivars
(American Society for Horticultural Science, 2008-06)
In this work, 29 pepper cultivars that represent the diversity of types and varieties grown in Turkey were analyzed for water-soluble antioxidant capacity and phenolic and vitamin C contents. In addition, 14 non-Turkish ...
