- ... Parkinson's disease (PD) is a multifactorial neurodegenerative disorder affecting 5% of the population over the age of 85 years. Current treatments primarily involve dopamine replacement therapy, which leads to temporary relief of motor symptoms but fails to slow the underlying neurodegeneration. Thus, there is a need for safe PD therapies with neuroprotective activity. In this study, we analyzed ...

- ... The levels of bioactive anthocyanins in the fruits of Amelanchier alnifolia, A. arborea and A. canadensis have been determined by HPLC. Cyanidin 3-galactoside (1) was present in the fresh fruit of the three species at concentrations of 155, 390 and 165 mg/100 g, respectively. Cyanidin 3-glucoside (2) was present only in A. alnifolia and A. canadensis at concentrations of 54 and 48 mg/100 g, respec ...

- ... Asynchronous ripening of fruits within individual, temperate, summer—fruiting, bird—dispersed plants has been proposed to be an adaptation to avoid satiation of dispersers when they are not abundant. I tested a prediction of this hypothesis by manipulating ripening synchrony on individual Amelanchier arborea trees and comparing ripe fruit removal rates from these trees to paired controls. Artifici ...
