Stenodactylin was purified from the caudex of Adenia stenodactyla as previously described (Stirpe et al.
Ribosome-inactivating proteins and other lectins from Adenia (Passifloraceae).
Characterization of highly toxic type 2 ribosome-inactivating proteins from Adenia lanceolata and Adenia stenodactyla (Passifloraceae).
In Adenia hondala somatic embrygenesis was induced directly from the leaf explants and indirectly from the internodal derived callus.
Metabolic mobilization in organogenic cultures of Adenia hondala showed a gradual increasing trend in the accumulation of proteins and starch during the initial stages of shoot formation followed by a decreasing trend during later stages of development.
A positive correlation has been observed between starch accumulation and utilization during organogenesis in Adenia hondala.
The present work describes an efficient multiplication and conservation system for adenia hondala using in vitro techniques
a cytotoxic polyacetylene from the leaves of Adenia
Adenia was predeceased by her husband of 61 years, John (Jack) Keenan.
Born in Phillipston, MA, Adenia spent her early years on the Baker farm and graduated from Athol High School.
In addition to working, Adenia was a member of the Barre Congregational Church and very involved in the Lady's Auxiliary for the American Legion Post 2 for 59 years.
