Taxaceae and Cephalotaxaceae Book PDF summary

Taxaceae and Cephalotaxaceae: Biodiversity, Chemodiversity, and Pharmacotherapy accounts for the biodiversity and chemodiversity of these medicinal plants, examining and synthesizing existing research into their biology, chemistry and pharmacotherapy. The title examines how pharmacophylogeny allows sustainable conservation and exploitation, presents how these plants work from the chemical level upward, and examines associated microbe compounds. Chapters present a summary of biological and biochemical research of Taxaceae plants, progress in mining their chemodiversity, mining pharmacotherapy utility from their chemodiversity and biodiversity, drug metabolism and pharmacokinetic diversity of their medicinal compounds, mining pharmacotherapy utility from associated microbes, and more. Sections cover the biodiversity, chemodiversity and pharmacotherapy of Cephalotaxus medicinal plants, Amentotaxus, Pseudotaxus and Torreya medicinal plants. The book envisages that multiple omics platforms and advanced systems biology will allow further exploration of Taxaceae and Cephalotaxaceae, thus streamlining the future drug supply chain. Covers the biodiversity and chemodiversity of Taxaceae/Cephalotaxus medicinal plants Considers how a pharmacophylogeny framework can benefit conservation and sustainable exploitation of these plants Presents how Taxaceae/Cephalotaxus work from the chemical level upward“/li> Details the polypharmacology of these plants and associated microbe compounds in relation to pharmaceutical design and development Brings the reader up-to-date on the biology, chemistry and pharmacotherapy of Taxaceae/Cephalotaxus medicinal plants

Taxus - a genus of coniferous trees or shrubs known as yews, in the family Taxaceae - is the source plant of anti-cancer drug Paclitaxel and its biosynthetic precursors, analogs and derivatives, and has been studied for decadesfor its pharmacological potential. There are many endemic Taxus species in China and internationally. Gaps are still present, however, in knowledge about the genomics, epigenomics, transcriptomics, proteomics, metabolomics and bioinformatics/cheminformatics of Taxaceae/Cephalotaxus and their associated microbes. In turn, systems biology and

Conifers are one of the world's most important resources of timber. If managed wisely and used sustainably, these resources will provide wood for a multitude of purposes, virtually indefinitely. Additional products include resins and their derivatives, and even medicinal extracts--for example taxol now used in the treatment of cancer. Conifers occur on all continents except Antarctica. Of the 630 species, 355 are listed as of conservation concern, with 200, or 25 of species, threatened with extinction. Although exploitation of these resources is as old

There have been at least ten English-language textbooks of palaeobotany since D. H. Scott published the first edition of Studies inFossilBotany in 1900. Most have been written by scientists who were primarily botanists by training, and were aimed largely at a readership familiar with living plants. They tended to follow a general pattern of an introductory chapter on preservation of plants as fossils, followed by a systematic treatment, group by group.
