Overall, Bromelia laciniosa is a plant that is tailored for specific conditions and can be a valuable resource for a farmer. Campesterol Compound 15 is a common phytosterol found in many edible plants. In addition to pure samples of Like all bromeliads, the leaves of Bromelia laciniosa are covered with tiny scales that appear to be white and fuzzy; known as trichomes, these epidermal projections leaf hairs help the plant efficiently extract moisture from hot and dry climates.

Bromelia laciniosa natively known as macambirais part of the bromeliad plant family, or in other words, the pineapple family—though not all bromeliads resemble the common pineapple.

New sources for known sapogenins. Seven alkanes with considerably shorter chain lengths, ranging C 12 —C 18have previously been identified from Bromeliaceae spp. Other Compounds The relatively common natural product phytol Figure 3 was identified in the crude extract from E.

No natural products bromelis been characterized from this species. This allows for applications of a broad selection of 2D NMR spectroscopic experiments, which are now accessible within an acceptable time scale of approximately 15—30 min per experiment. Position specificity in n-hexane hydroxylation by two forms of cytochrome P in lacjniosa liver microsomes.

Notice that the characteristic signal patterns of the pure standard compounds matches the corresponding signals of the same compounds present as part of mixture comprising the extract of N.


The relative quantities of each compound were calculated based on the peak heights in the total ion chromatogram. National Center for Biotechnology InformationU. At the beginning of the rainy season, Brpmelia.

The efficiency with which alkanes might contribute to a cholesterol-lowering effect of waxes is regulated by limited absorption and the need for hydroxylation of these compounds. A total ion chromatogram TIC was acquired during the whole GC run and mass spectra were generated and transformed to centroided spectra using baseline correction and smoothing using a weighted moving average.

Macambira, Bromelia laciniosa, stone, 2017, Caatinga, Boa Vista, Paraíba, Brazil

Las gomas de Bromelia serra gris. Four fatty acids, palmitic acid, oleic acid, stearic acid and 9,12 -octadecadienoic acid, were identified from all three investigated species Figure 3.

Soaking the seeds of Bromelia laciniosa in acetone for 60 minutes is an effective treatment that increases vigor and germination.

Strong fibers can also be extracted from Bromelia laciniosa ; the blades of the plant are cut, its thorns removed, its leaves fermented for several days to loosen up the fibers, and then its stalks are dried and readied for fiber extraction; a caveat though is that this process gives off a pungent odor, so this task should be performed in bbromelia contained area.

Bromelia laciniosa ·

Neoglaziovia variegataBromeliaceae. Altogether, six very long-chain n -alkanes were identified Figure 3. As part of our ongoing work on the characterization of natural products from food and medicinal plants aimed at rationalizing the molecular basis lacniosa their applications, the constituents of non-polar extracts of B.


The appearance of Bromelia laciniosa depends on various factors, like season and soil, but will typically look like a squat, yellowish-green, thorny shrub with streaks of purple and pink that run along its leaves and converge with the striking flower of the plant. Samples were dissolved in hexane and splitless mode was used for injection. There is not much information regarding pests and diseases that are specific to Bromelia laciniosaso in absence of this, it may be useful to refer to the bromleia pathogens of the bromeliad family.

Figure 1which belong to the subfamily Bromelioideae, and Encholirium spectabile Mart. Except for one western African species, all Bromeliaceae are endemic to the American tropics.

Macambira (Bromelia laciniosa)

The Bromeliaceae is a large family of flowering plants within the Monocots, which contains 58 genera and approximately species. Even though GC-HRMS is an excellent method for characterizing mixtures of natural products, there are some limitations in connection with the application of this method. Altogether, 20 compounds were for the first time identified in the chromatograms of the hydrophobic crude extracts of B.

NMR metabolomics has gained importance because this strategy provides insight into complex systems of mixtures of natural products occurring at their natural relative abundance.
