Br Poult Sci. Jul;44(3) The effect of chaya (Cnidoscolus aconitifolius) leaf meal and of exogenous enzymes on amino acid digestibility in broilers. Abstract. Aims: This study focused on the possible protective effect of Cnidoscolus aconitifolius leaf extract (CA) against hepatic damage. Introduction: Male fertility is controlled by a complex assortment of pituitary- gonadal hormones. This regulation is key to understanding.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia. GSH acts as a free radical scavenger and regenerator of alpha-tocopherol and plays a significant role in sustaining protein sulfhydryl groups Glantzounis et al. Cnidoscopus Herb Pharmacother 7: Recent Prog Horm Res Cnidoscolus aconitifolius is divided into 2 subspecies.

This protective effect is probably based on the antioxidant activity of CA or KV, which reduced the oxidative damage by blocking the production of free radicals, and thus inhibited lipid peroxidation. When cooked, the young leaves and shoots of tree spinach are consumed as vegetable as it is rich in protein, calcium, iron, carotene, riboflavin, niacin, and ascorbic acid.

Chaya has potential as a home garden crop. Representative photomicrographs of liver slides from rats that served as control, ethanol-treated, ethanol-treated with KV or CA. Syst Biol Reprod Med CA has been reported to act as an effective antioxidant of great importance against diseases and degenerative processes caused by oxidative stress.

Long-term contact with the white sap can cause skin irritation[ ]. It is mostly aconitlfolius as a hedge in home gardens. It should be noted however that leaves should be cooked thoroughly to remove its high hydrocyanic acid content. Lipid peroxidation is accepted as one of the principal causes of ethanol-induced liver injury mediated by the production of free radical derivatives.


Serious diseases and pests are not known[ ].

Journal of Agricultural and Food Chemistry. Young chaya leaves and shoots are cooked and eaten, alone or in combination with other vegetables and meat in stews and soups.

Aconitifoliks rabbits, fed increasingly higher quantities of the leaves, showed a significant drop in blood sugar levels[ ]. Further studies are warranted to isolate the active component in this leaf that is responsible for the observed effect.

This taxon has not yet been assessed.

Protective effects of saponins from the root of Platycodon grandiflorum against fatty liver in chronic ethanol feeding via the activation of AMP-dependent protein kinase. Biochemistry of hormones In: Seven bioactive constituents were tested, out of which four tested positive in CA.

Young chaya leaves and the thick, tender stem tips are cut and boiled as a spinach. Citing articles via Web of Science 4. Mol Cell Endocrinol To leave a comment please Register or login here All comments need to be approved so will not appear immediately.

J Med Biomed Res 12 2: Cnidoscolus aconitifolius possibly originated in the Yucatan region of Mexico, but is now widespread in eastern Mexico and Central America. Two-site sandwich enzyme immunoassay with monoclonal antibodies acointifolius human alpha-fetoprotein. See Terms of Use for details. Harvesting is best done with protected hands, because even in unarmed plants, long-term contact with the white sap can cause skin irritation.

It also contains HCN 27—42 mg. The first harvest can be taken 90 – days after planting out[ ]. Always seek advice from a professional before using a plant medicinally. Annu Rev Biochem
