Title of presentation: Enhancement of Acibenzolar-S-methylon on the Expression of Phenylpropanoid Biosynthetic Genes and the collection of Phenylpropanoids in Mentha species


Mentha species contains sesquiterpenes, essential oils, diterpenes, flavonoids, triterpenes, and carotenoids that are utilized for the treatment of disease. Therapeutic plants can activate defensive mechanisms upon presentation to pathogens, different synthetic concoctions, or physical pressure. The present examination expected to decide the articulation dimensions of phenylpropanoid pathway qualities and gathering of phenylpropanoids in Mentha species plantlets because of acibenzolar-S-methyl (ASM) treatment. ASM treatment animated the declaration of phenylpropanoid biosynthetic qualities, for example, PAL, C4H, CHS, CHI, HPPR, TAT, and RAS after 1, 3, 5, and 7 days of development. The articulation example of the upstream and downstream phenylpropanoid biosynthetic qualities was specifically corresponding to the ASM introduction times. Specifically, the articulation dimension of the RAS quality was 1.59-, 2.88-, 1.36-, and 1.41-overlay higher at 1, 3, 5, and 7 days after ASM treatment, when contrasted with particular controls. The dimensions of rosmarinic acid, tilianin, and acacetin amassing were comparatively 2.28-, 1.88-, and 1.61-overlap higher than those of the control following 7 days of ASM treatment. Among the phenylpropanoids inspected, rosmarinic acid was most noteworthy (5 mg/g dry weight) in the control and ASM-treated plantlets. Our outcomes demonstrated that ASM upgrades the statement of qualities identified with phenylpropanoids and gathering of phenylpropanoids amid the advancement of Mentha plantlets.

Key words: Mentha species, Acibenzolar-S-methylon, Phenylpropanoid, Rosmarinic acid, Gene expression.

Biography: Dr. J. Joseph Sahayarayan presently working as a Assistant Professor in  Alagappa University, Karaikudi, Tamilnadu, India (A State University with NACC A+ (CGPA: 3.64) 3rd Cycle). He is having six years teaching experience in various Institutions. He is actively participating in various university committees as a member and coordinator (NSS). He published more than nine reputed International and National journals and conferences. The research area is mainly focused on Plant Bioinformatics and Biotechnology. Plant derived bio active compounds and concentrates on human diseases. Due to emerging problems of drug resistance in bacteria, fungus and viruses in plant system. Development of metabolic products for the control of bacterial, fungal and viral pathogens, which often emerges as a secondary infection following antibiotic treatment. Mainly explored many lead compounds from medicinal plants showing effect on bacterial, fungal and viral infection and human health.
