  • Copper induced root growth inhibition of Allium cepa var. Agrogarum L. involves disturbances in cell division and DNA damage

    Copper (Cu) is considered an indispensable microelement for plants. However, excessive Cu is toxic and disturbs several processes in the plant. The present study addressed the effects of ionic Cu (2.0 µM and 8.0 µM) on mitosis, microtubule cytoskeleton and DNA in root tip cells of Allium cepa var. agrogarum L., in order to better understand Cu toxicity on plant root systems. Results indicated ...

  • Oxidative potential of UV‐A irradiated or non‐irradiated suspensions of TiO2 or SiO2 nanoparticles on Allium cepa roots

    The effect of UV‐A irradiated or non‐irradiated suspensions of agglomerates of TiO2 or SiO2 nanoparticles on roots of the onion (Allium cepa) has been studied. The reactive potential of TiO2 nanoparticles which have photocatalytic potential and the non‐photocatalytic SiO2 nanoparticles with the same size of agglomerates was compared. We measured the activity of antioxidant enzyme glutathione ...

  • Changes in chlorophyll, anthocyanins and phenolic compounds concentration in fresh–cut onion

    The minimal processing of onion is practical and convenient to consumers, eliminating the inconvenience of peeling, cutting, unwanted odour and tearing effect. The study aimed to estimate the levels of chlorophyll, anthocyanins and phenolic compounds in fresh–cut onions, triturated in the form. Onions, white and purple, obtained in Pombal–PB were conducted in the Laboratory of Food ...

  • Effects of Aspergillus niger in onion bulbs (Allium cepa L.) stored in the post–harvest phase

    Onion bulbs were stored in the field, in piles until its commercialisation but the bulbs may be affected by fungal diseases. The objective was to assess the effects of the temperature (T), relative humidity (RH) within the piles, the water percentage (WP) and soluble solids (SS) of the bulbs over Aspergillus niger incidence. Bulbs of Cobriza INTA, Antártica INTA, Valcatorce INTA, Valuno ...

  • Oxidative damage and antioxidant response of Allium cepa meristematic and elongation cells exposed to metronidazole

    The toxicity of metronidazole (MTZ) in meristematic and elongation zones of Allium cepa roots was analyzed for 30 h of exposition. Toxic effects were evaluated by lipid peroxidation (content of thiobarbituric‐reactive substances [TBARS]), reduced glutathione (GSH) levels, ascorbate acid and dehydroascorbate acid content, and enzymatic activities of superoxide dismutase and catalase. The root ...

  • Studies on the efficacy of physical, chemical and biological aflatoxin B1 detoxification approaches in red chilli powder

    Aflatoxin free powdered red pepper (100 g) was spiked with 100 ppb of aflatoxin B1 (AFB1) in methanol and was subjected to various physical (UV irradiation, heating, microwave); chemical (oxidation, bleaching, ammoniation, sulphitation) and biological (enzymatic) treatments. The residual AFB1 was quantified by standard methods to find the efficiency of different treatments in degrading AFB1. ...

  • Long-term study of properties of a xerofluvent of the guadalquivir river valley under organic fertilization

    The long-term effect of inorganic and organic fertilization in a vegetable crop rotation on soil chemical and biochemical properties was investigated in a trial in southern Spain. Two crops were grown in succession, potato (Solanum tuberosum L.) and a mixed-cropped strawberry–onion (Fragaria vesca L.–Allium cepa L.). Total organic carbon (TOC), Kjeldahl-N, bicarbonate-extractable P (Olsen-P), ...

  • Case Study: Garlic Processor

    Utilizing Bio System’s Microbes and Aeromix Systems to develop a stable biomass and eliminate odors from a food processing pond.A California garlic processor had a persistent odor problem with their wastewater pond and had been under increased scrutiny from the Regional Water Quality Control Board (RWQCB) as well as the Air District to reduce the pond odors. The odors emanating from this pond ...
