Engineering osmotolerant plants is a challenge for modern agriculture. An interaction between osmotic stress response and phosphate homeostasis has been reported in plants, but the identity of molecules involved in this interaction remains unknown. In this study we assessed the role of phytic acid (PA) in response to osmotic stress and/or phosphate deficiency in Arabidopsis thaliana. For this purpose, we used Arabidopsis lines (L7 and L9) expressing a bacterial beta-propeller phytase PHY-US417, and a mutant in inositol polyphosphate kinase 1 gene (ipk1-1), which were characterized by low PA content, 40% (L7 and L9) and 83% (ipk1-1) of the wild-type (WT) plants level...

Myo-inositol hexaphosphate, also known as phytic acid (PA), is the most abundant storage form of phosphorus in seeds. PA acts as a strong chelator of metal cations to form phytate and is considered an anti-nutrient as it reduces the bioavailability of important micronutrients. Although the major nutrient source for more than one-half of the global population, rice is a poor source of essential micronutrients. Therefore, biofortification and reducing the PA content of rice have arisen as new strategies for increasing micronutrient bioavailability in rice...

Phytic acid (PA) is implicative in a spectrum of biochemical and physiological processes involved in plant stress response. Inositol 1,3,4, Tris phosphate 5/6 kinase (ITPK), a polyphosphate kinase that converts Inositol 1,3,4 trisphosphate to Inositol 1,3,4,5/6 tetra phosphate, averting the inositol phosphate pool towards PA biosynthesis, is a key regulator that exists in four different isoforms in soybean. In the present study, in-silico analysis of the promoter region of ITPKs was done and among the four isoforms, promoter region of GmITPK2 showed the presence of two MYB binding elements for drought inducibility and one for ABA response...

Phytic acid (IP6) is a natural phosphorylated inositol which abundantly present in most cereal grains and seeds. This study investigated the effects of IP6 regulation on P-gp and its potential mechanisms using in situ and in vitro models. The effective permeability of the typical P-gp substrate rhodamine 123 (R123) in colon was significantly increased from (1.69 ± 0.22) × 10-5cm/s in the control group to (3.39 ± 0.417) ×10-5cm/s (p < 0.01) in the 3.5 mM IP6 group. Additionally, IP6 can concentration-dependently decrease the R123 efflux ratio in both Caco-2 and MDCK II-MDR1 cell monolayers and increase intracellular R123 accumulation in Caco-2 cells...

A dominant loss of function mutation in myo-inositol phosphate synthase (MIPS) gene and recessive loss of function mutations in two multidrug resistant protein type-ABC transporter genes not only reduce the seed phytic acid levels in soybean, but also affect the pathways associated with seed development, ultimately resulting in low emergence. To understand the regulatory mechanisms and identify key genes that intervene in the seed development process in low phytic acid crops, we performed computational inference of gene regulatory networks in low and normal phytic acid soybeans using a time course transcriptomic data and multiple network inference algorithms...

BACKGROUND: Microbial spoilage and lipid oxidation are two major factors causing freshness deterioration of Pacific saury (Cololabis saira) during frozen storage. To provide a remedy, the effects of several natural chemicals incorporated alone or in combination in traditional water ice-glazing on the freshness and shelf-life of Pacific saury during frozen storage at -18 °C were investigated. Pacific sauries were subjected to individual quick freezing (IQF) followed by immediately dipping into cold tap water (control) or solutions containing nisin, chitosan, phytic acid (single-factor experiment) or their combinations [(L9 (34 ) orthogonal experiment] for 10 s at 1 °C, and then packaged in polypropylene bags before frozen storage at -18 °C...

BACKGROUND: Polyamines are essentially involved in cell division and differentiation. Transport of polyamine is ATP dependent, while phytic acid is the major reserve of phosphate essential to the energy-producing machinery of cells. Thus, polyamines might enhance phytic acid degradation during mung bean germination. In this study, different polyamines [putrescine (Put), spermidine (Spd) and spermine (Spm)] and dicyclohexylamine (DCHA, a Spd synthesis inhibitor) were applied to investigate the function of polyamines on phytic acid degradation...

Many studies have demonstrated the effects of host diet on gut microbial membership, metagenomics, and fermentation individually; but few have attempted to interpret the relationship among these biological phenomena with respect to host features (e.g. gut morphology). We quantitatively compare the fecal microbial communities, metabolic pathways, and fermentation products associated with the nutritional intake of frugivorous (fruit-eating) and folivorous (leaf-eating) lemurs. Our results provide a uniquely multidimensional and comparative perspective on the adaptive dynamics between host and microbiome...

Phytic acid (PA) induced graphene macrostructures were synthesized and investigated for the sorption characteristics and mechanisms of mercury. The as-synthesized graphene foam possessed large specific surface area and amphiphilicity. FTIR and XPS analysis revealed that the as-prepared graphene macrostructure retained oxygen-containing functional groups after hydrothermal reduction and also captured new phosphorus-containing groups because of the introduction of PA. Different experimental parameters, such as pH, PA fractions and contact time were applied to probe into the Hg(II) adsorption performance of as-synthesized macrostructure...
