SP revised the manuscript. Restorative effect of Dendrophthoe falcata L. Results Dextran sulfate sodium induced colitis associated cancer Pdntandra Based on previous studies, DSS was used in combination with AOM, received a chemical carcinogen which induces colorectal cancer in mice.

An inducible mouse model of colon carcinogenesis for the analysis of sporadic and inflammation-driven tumor progression. The above photo features the caterpillars of the Painted Jezebel Delias hyparete metarete feeding on the leaves of a Common Malayan Mistletoe Dendrophthoe pentandra.

Min K, Ebeler SE. The leaves of mature plants are often more consistently ovate in shape with a pointed tip.

The tissue sections were sequentially incubated with biotinylated goat anti-mouse IgG no. Our results indicate that Pentajdra induced pmediated inhibition of S phase in cell cycle. Here’s another leaf pentandea the same plant with which has a very different shape from the leaves in the previous photo. It has a wavy margin, and is more ovate in shape.

Then, cells were permeabilized by 0. Traditionally, several species of mistletoes were used to treat cough, diabetes, hypertension, and skin infection etc.


The Oval-leaved Mistletoe Viscum ovalifolium is one of the two native mistletoes from the family Santalaceae previously under Viscaceae. The leaves of young plants may appear more elongated though.

In the photo above, you can see the budding male flowers the two yellow structures on both sides of the female flower. Flavonoid bioavailability and attempts for bioavailability enhancement. This study also showed that DPE could be potential sources of new therapy. Cytokine Growth Factor Rev. The extant species comprise pentxndra species from the family Loranthaceae, and two species from the family Santalaceae.

Chronic inflammation causes penfandra migration of inflammatory cells such as neutrophils. Evolutionary relationships in the showy mistletoe family Loranthaceae. Brown-color nucleus indicates BrdU-positive cells.

In this study, DPE suppressed carsinogenesis by reducing the proliferation of epithelial cells. An Expose of a Botanical Marvel. The ones seen in Singapore generally have leathery and glossy ovate leaves with wavy edges.

So obviously, all holoparasites are obligate parasites. In conclusion, DPE can induce cytotoxicity through multiple routes of action. Number of BrdU positive cells. Pentandta The percentage of cells in S phase.

Dendrophthoe pentandra (L.) Miq.

The tiny flowers are yellow in colour. IL levels were measured from supernatants of colon organ culture by enzyme linked immunosorbent assay.

As mistletoes are attached to the stems and branches of trees or shrubs, they are hence also often called “stem parasites”. If you find any mistakes in my blog, do drop me an email at ronyeo gmail. A healthy tree can usually support a good number of mistletoes, but if a tree growing on poor soil is infested by too many mistletoes, its health can be further worsened since the mistletoes will be competing with it for water, mineral nutrients and sunlight.


The Penaga Laut Calophyllum inophyllum above is a Heritage Tree supporting lots of mistletoes of several species. Here’s a germinating Pink-flowered Mistletoe.

The fruit is a small hairy pseudo berry, about 1cm long. Neutrophils would amplify inflammation by secreting enzyme myeloperoxidase MPO to release the inflammatory mediators. The results of the current study indicated that the ability of dendrohthoe to develop CAC was inhibited by the administration of the DPE treatment. Jpn J Cancer Res. Cancer cell-specific inhibition of cell cycle progression.

tHE tiDE cHAsER: Mistletoes of Singapore

As its common name implies, it has no leaves, and in fact, unlike the previous species, does not even have phyllodes. Briefly, paraffin-embedded colon tissue sections were deparaffinized and hydrated. GM-CSF produced by nonhematopoietic cells is required for early epithelial cell proliferation and repair of injured colonic mucosa.

Lim C, Savan R. Infammatory pathways pentandrq the early steps of colorectal cancer development. In other cases, the bird will swallow the whole fruit with the seed.

This finding is consistent with other reports of increased p53 expression with various anti cancer strategies [ 34 — 38 ].
