Complete mitochondrial genome of Mentha spicata L. reveals multiple chromosomal configurations and RNA editing events
Int J Biol Macromol. 2023 Aug 11:126257. doi: 10.1016/j.ijbiomac.2023.126257. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTMentha spicata L. is a valuable plant that yields spearmint oil, widely utilized in the pharmaceutical, chemical, and cosmetic industries. The mitochondrial genome (mitogenome) is an essential material for molecular breeding and evolution studies. Here, the mitogenome of M. spicata was assembled by combining Nanopore and Illumina reads. It consisted of a linear chromosome (Ch1) and two circular chromosomes (Ch2 and Ch3). Furthermore, we showed two pairs of repeats (R1 and R2) mediated recombinations resulting in mult...

Exploring the antibacterial potential of plant extracts and essential oils against Bacillus thermophilus in beet sugar for enhanced sucrose retention: a comparative assessment and implications
Sugar beet is one of the greatest sources for producing sugar worldwide. However, a group of bacteria grows on beets during the storage process, leading to a reduction in sucrose yield. Our study focused on identifying common bacterial species that grow on beets during manufacturing and contribute to sucrose loss. The ultimate goal was to find a potential antibacterial agent from various plant extracts and oils to inhibit the growth of these harmful bacteria and reduce sucrose losses. The screening of bacterial species that grow on beet revealed that a large group of mesophilic bacteria, such as Bacillus subtilis, Leuconos...

l-carvone decreases breast cancer cells adhesion, migration, and invasion by suppressing FAK activation
Chem Biol Interact. 2023 Apr 12:110480. doi: 10.1016/j.cbi.2023.110480. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTBreast cancer is one of the most common types of cancer in the world and current therapeutic strategies present severe drawbacks. l-carvone (CRV), a monoterpene found in Mentha spicata (spearmint), has been reported to have potent anti-inflammatory activity. Here, we examined the role of CRV in breast cancer cell adhesion, migration and invasion in vitro and how this component could suppress the growth of Ehrlich carcinoma-bearing mice. In vivo, treatment with CRV significantly decreased tumor growth, increased tumor necro...

Health risk assessment and bioaccumulation of potentially toxic metals from water, soil, and forages near coal mines of district Chakwal, Punjab, Pakistan
AbstractWater, forages, and soil contamination with potentially toxic metals (PTMs) through anthropogenic activities has become a significant environmental concern. It is crucial to find out the level of PTMs in water, soil, and forages near industrial areas. The PTMs enter the body of living organisms through these sources and have become a potential risk for humans and animals. Therefore, the present study aims at the health risk assessment of PTMs and their accumulation in soil, water, and forages of three tehsils (Kallar Kahar, Choa Saidan Shah, and Chakwal) in district Chakwal. Samples of wastewater, soil, and forages...

Molecules, Vol. 28, Pages 2007: Toxicity and Physiological Effects of Nine Lamiaceae Essential Oils and Their Major Compounds on Reticulitermes dabieshanensis
Dayu Zhang The volatile metabolites of Salvia sclarea, Rosmarinus officinalis, Thymus serpyllum, Mentha spicata, Melissa officinalis, Origanum majorana, Mentha piperita, Ocimum basilicum and Lavandula angustifolia were determined by gas chromatography–mass spectrometry. The vapor insecticidal properties of the analyzed essential oils and their compounds were screened using Reticulitermes dabieshanensis workers. The most effective oils were S. sclarea (major constituent linalyl acetate, 65.93%), R. officinalis (1,8-cineole, 45.56%), T. serpyllum (thymol, 33.59%), M. spicata (carvone, 58.68%), M. officin...
