Invite to 2nd International Symposium

Dear colleagues!


We invite you to take part in the 2nd International Symposium "Secondary metabolites: chemistry, biology and biotechnology" (Symposium «ISSMET 2014/2 INTERNATIONAL SIMPOSIUM OF SECONDARY METABOLITES: CHEMICAL, BIOLOGYCAL AND BIOTECHNOLOGICAL PROPERTIES», which will be held in 19-23 May 2014 in Russian State Agrarian University Moscow Timiryazev Agricultural Academy (Moscow, Russia).


Working languages English and Russian. In addition, the report might make in Russian, with a presentation to the English language.


The symposium will be held in the following fields:

1. Chemistry of secondary metabolites (production, properties, biological activity, etc.).


2. The physiological role of secondary metabolites in cells of higher plants in vivo and in vitro (education, protection from pathogens, viruses, and other stress effects, location, etc.).


3. Secondary metabolites and plant and animal biotechnology (cell selection, hormonal regulation, genetic engineering, nanotechnology and biotechnology).


4. Secondary metabolites of medicinal plants and their use in pharmacology.


5. Secondary metabolites of industrial applications (wine, confectionery, tea industry, cosmetics, etc.).

Key words: sunflower, callus tissue, Sclerotinia sclerotiorum, phenolic metabolites

Text (<300 words):

The objective of the research is to experiment the seed of three sunflower genotypes, which are possessed by various resistant to Sclerotinia sclerotiorum. The stress factor, culture filtrate pathogen (S. sclerotiorum), was studied. Callus tissues were cultivated at medium with addition of CF in concentrations (5%, 15%, 25%, 35%) from final volume of a medium.

The result of this study also shows the increase in biosynthetic activity of callus tissues of all studied genotypes, at cultivation callus tissues in stress conditions. Possibly, long cultivation of callus tissues of sunflower in stress conditions leads to "start" of the raised program protective reaction, which show increase of phenolic connections synthesis. The changes of quantitative contents of soluble phenolic connections in callus tissues of genotypes Kuban 93 and ВК 580, which were cultivated in medium with high concentration CF (25 and 35%), were higher in comparison with other concentration CF. For genotype ВК 580 these changes were in proportional to concentration of the stress-factor.

Enrichment of spectrum of synthesis phenolic complex, at the expense of biosynthesis de novo connections phenylpropanoids and flavonoids, was established in all investigated genotypes. In callus tissues of genotype Kuban 93 have 15 connections of phenolic complex , VK 580 - 18 connections, and VK 653 - 10 connections. From the results follows that the structure of phenolic connections in callus tissues, which were cultivated in medium with CF pathogen was increased in comparison with control variant that proves to be true the biochemical researches of the quantitative and qualitative contents of polyphenols.
