Idioma: es.
Resumo: La determinación de la producción de follaje verde en el primer año de siembra de la Acacia decurrens se realizó en la finca La Ramada, Quindío, a 4° 31' 41" de latitud norte y 75° 32' 41'' de longitud oeste, con una temperatura promedio de 16 °C. Las plantas fueron establecidas con un mes de edad, en surcos paralelos a la pendiente, podadas al alcanzar 1,8 m de altura y defoliadas manualmente simulando el ramoneo que realiza el ganado. Las densidades de siembra fueron: alta, media y baja: 1664, 832 y 416 acacias/hectárea, respectivamente; se realizaron defoliaciones por periodos a los 6, 9 y 12 meses de siembra. Las variables a medir fueron: peso en gramos de follaje verde por árbol e incremento en gramos de follaje verde/árbol/día. Todos los datos fueron analizados por ANOVA. No fue encontrada diferencia significativa (P>0,05) entre las variables analizadas al estudiar las diferentes densidades de siembra. Se evidenció diferencia significativa (P<0,05) entre periodos de defoliación, al analizar la variable de incremento en gramos de follaje verde por día, esto indica, que la producción de gramos de follaje verde fue mejor en el tercer periodo. La producción de follaje verde de la acacia en el primer año no se ve afectada por las diferentes densidades de siembra y hay un incremento de la producción de follaje verde a medida que las acacias incrementan su edad.

The determination of green foliage production of Acacia decurrens in the first planting year, was in La Ramada farm, Quindío, located 4° 31' 41'' of latitude north and 75° 32' 41'' longitude west, an average temperature 16 °C. The age for planting was one month, in parallel rows to the slope, pruning to 1,5 m of high and the acacia's browsing was simulated by manual defoliation; The planting densities were high, medium, and low: 1664, 832 and 416 acacias/hectare, respectively; and the periods o frequency of defoliation was to 6, 9 and 12 months of planting. The variables were grams/tree of foliage production and grams/tree/day of foliage increment. All data were analyzed by ANOVA. In this trial, the planting densities were not significantly (P>0.05), however, between periods the grams/tree/day of foliage increment were significantly (P<0.05), because the better production was in the third defoliation period. Acacia foliage production is similar in the first planting year with three different densities, and the foliage production increment improves with the time.

Resumo: Se evaluó la regeneración de Acacia decurrens, Acacia melanoxylon y Ulex europaeus, en una zona sujeta a un proceso de restauaración ecológica. En las áreas con presencia de individuos arboreos de Acacia decurrens y Acacia melanoxylon se presenta expresión del banco de semillas con formación periódica de la capa de hojarasca que detiene o desvía el proceso sucesional. En las áreas de claro se presenta regeneración de Ulex europaeus, ocupando rápidamente los espacios libres de vegetación. La plantación de especies nativas de porte arbustivo y arbóreo, junto con el control periódico de la regeneración y formación de hojarasca de las especies tensionantes, facilita la activación de los mecanismos de sucesión secundaria, aumentando la riqueza, diversidad y equitatividad de las especies en el ecosistema.

Regeneration of Acacia decurrens, Acacia melanoxylon and Ulex europaeus In an area subject to the process of ecological restoration was evaluated. In areas with Acacia decurrens and Acacia melanoxylon arboreal individuals expression of seed banks with periodic accumulation of fallen leaves that stop or divert the succession process is present. In open areas Ulex europaeus regeneration occurs quickly occupying areas without vegetation. The plantation of native shrubby or arboreal species, along with periodic monitoring of the regeneration and fallen leaves formation of alien species, facilitate the activation of secondary succesion mechanisms, increasing the richness, diversity and evenness of species in the ecosystem.

Idioma: en.
Resumo: ABSTRACT Background Post-operative pain is the major consequence of Ksarasutra, Seton technique employed in Ayurvedic management of Low anal fistula. Surgeons are forced to prescribe Opioids and NSAIDs with pronounced untoward effects. Non pharmacological measures like Balneotherapy are used to improve circulation and relieve spasm in contemporary sciences. Aim To compare the efficacy of Khadira (Acacia catechu) and Sphatika (Potash alum) hot sitzbath with plain hot sitzbath in patients of low anal fistula treated with Ksarasutra. Method The study was single blind, double armed; prospective, randomized control clinical trial in which 30 patients were randomly allocated into two groups of 15 each on the basis of inclusion and exclusion criteria. Group A received hot sitzbath using Acacia catechu and alum infusion twice daily for 21 days. Group B received hot sitzbath using warm water for 21 days. The assessments were made on pain, post-surgical satisfaction burning sensation, tenderness, discharge, constipation, itching and incontinence. Result The disease was prevalent in the 4th decade of life, more in males (86.67%) involved in sedentary work (53.33%) residing in urban domicile, consuming mixed diet (100%). Both groups showed statistically significant improvement in outcome measures like pain, burning sensation, tenderness, discharge, constipation and itching. Conclusion On comparative analysis Acacia and Alum hot sitzbath was more effective in outcomes like pain, surgical satisfaction, burning sensation and discharge. There was no difference in the effect of both interventions with respect to outcome measures like constipation, itching and incontinence.

RESUMO Justificativa A dor pós-operatória é a principal consequência da técnica que utiliza seton de Ksarasutra no tratamento ayurvédico de fístula anal baixa. Os cirurgiões são impelidos a prescrever opiáceos e AINEs que possuem efeitos indesejáveis pronunciados. Medidas não farmacológicas como a balneoterapia são usadas nas ciências contemporâneas para melhorar a circulação e aliviar o espasmo. Objetivo Comparar a eficácia do banho quente de assento com Khadira (Acacia catechu) e Sphatika (Potash alum) com apenas banho de assento em pacientes com fístula anal baixa tratados com Ksarasutra. Método Estudo clínico prospectivo, cego e controlado de dois braços randomizados, no qual 30 pacientes foram alocados aleatoriamente em dois grupos de 15 pacientes cada com base nos critérios de inclusão e exclusão. O Grupo A recebeu banho de assento com Acacia catechu e infusão de alume duas vezes ao dia por 21 dias. O Grupo B recebeu banho de assento com água morna por 21 dias. Os desfechos avaliados foram dor, satisfação pós-cirúrgica, sensação de queimação, sensibilidade, corrimento, constipação, prurido e incontinência. Resultado A doença foi prevalente na 4ª década de vida, mais frequente no sexo masculino (86,67%), nos envolvidos em trabalho sedentário (53,33%), nos residentes em domicílios urbanos e nos que consumiam dieta mista (100%). Ambos os grupos apresentaram melhora estatisticamente significativa na avaliação dos resultados, tais como dor, sensação de queimação, sensibilidade, corrimento, constipação e prurido. Conclusão Na análise comparativa, o banho quente de assento com acácia e alume foi mais eficaz nos desfechos de dor, satisfação cirúrgica, sensação de queimação e corrimento. Não houve diferença em relação ao efeito de ambas as intervenções sobre os desfechos de constipação, prurido e incontinência.

Título: Tannic extract potential as natural wood preservative of Acacia mearnsii
Fonte: An. acad. bras. ciênc;89(4):3031-3038, Oct.-Dec. 2017. tab.
Idioma: en.
Resumo: ABSTRACT High toxicity of the preservatives most frequently used in wood treatment and the resulting risks of handling pose a threat to small producers and to the environment. In an attempt to mitigate these problems, the present study was conducted with the objective of evaluating the preservative effect of tannic extract on biodeterioration of Acacia mearnsii wood. For this purpose, untreated and preserved specimens, some with tannin extract and some with a preservative mixture based on CCB (Chromated Copper Borate), were submitted to accelerated rotting trials with the fungus that causes white rot (Pycnoporus sanguineus) for 16 weeks. The evaluations were made with a basis on weight loss and chemical components analysis, and they showed that the natural resistance of Acacia wood is moderate when exposed to the white rot fungus. The tannin concentrations showed similar effects to those of the CBB mixture in all evaluations, i.e., they significantly increased the biological resistance of the material, which started to be classified as very resistant to the fungus. Overall, the results suggest that tannin can be considered as a potential natural preservative product.

Título: Litter decomposition and nutrient release dynamics of leaves and roots of the babassu palm in eastern Amazonia
Fonte: Acta amaz;50(3):213-222, jul. - set. 2020.
Idioma: en.
Resumo: The ruderal babassu palm (Attalea speciosa) is expanding on large areas of degraded Amazon landscapes. Decomposition of leaves and roots is in the center of plant:soil interactions. We evaluated decomposition and nutrient concentrations of leaves and fine roots of babassu in comparison with two exotic reference species, Acacia mangium (slow degradability) and Leucaena leucocephala (fast degradability), in a 138-day litterbag assay carried out in secondary forest stands of different age and babassu abundance. We chose 4-mm over 2-mm mesh litterbags based on a pilot study. Babassu leaves degraded slower than leaves of A. mangium and L. leucocephala, and also had lower nitrogen, phosphorus and calcium concentrations in all stages of decomposition. By contrast, potassium concentrations in babassu leaves were higher than in both reference species at 0 and 50 days. Roots of all three species decomposed slower than leaves. Compared to the leaves, both biomass loss and nutrient concentrations differed less between babassu and reference-species roots, except for lower nitrogen concentration in babassu roots. Leaf-litter decomposition of all three species was significantly faster in old than in young secondary forest, suggesting an acceleration of decomposition along succession. Babassu leaves decomposed faster in old babassu-dominated than non-dominated secondary forest, pointing to the existence of specialized decomposer communities in babassu-dominated stands. (AU)

Resumo: Plantios de acácia-australiana, Racosperma mangium (Willd.) Pedley (Fabaceae), são opção para reflorestamentos comerciais na Amazônia. O trabalho objetiva, pela primeira vez, reportar e descrever injúrias causadas por Pelidnota filippiniae Soula, 2009 (Coleoptera: Melolonthidae: Rutelinae) em plantio experimental em Dom Eliseu, Pará. Observações mensais foram feitas de 2006 a 2009. A maior incidência ocorreu no início do período chuvoso, em outubro e novembro, nos primeiros anos do plantio, quando diferentes intensidades de desfolha foram observadas. Embora danos significativos não tenham sido constatados, P. filippiniae tem potencial para causar prejuízos à cultura. Recomendam-se monitoramentos mensais nesse período e a catação manual do inseto para evitar maiores danos.

Plantations of Australian acacia, Racosperma mangium (Willd.) Pedley (Fabaceae), are option for commercial reforestations in the Amazon. The work aims, for the first time, report and describe injuries caused by Pelidnota filippiniae Soula, 2009 (Coleoptera: Melolonthidae: Rutelinae) in experimental plantation in Dom Eliseu County, Pará State, Brazil. Monthly observations were made from 2006 to 2009. Outbreaks occurred at the beginning of the rainy season, in October and November, in the early years of plantation when were observed different intensities of defoliation. Although significant damages have not been recorded, P. filippiniae has the potential to cause damages to this crop. Monthly monitorings and insect-picking are recommended during this period to avoid further damages.

Título: Mangrove endophyte promotes reforestation tree (Acacia polyphylla) growth
Fonte: Braz. j. microbiol;49(1):59-66, Jan.-Mar. 2018. tab, graf.
Idioma: en.
Projeto: FAPESP; . CNPq.
Resumo: ABSTRACT Mangroves are ecosystems located in the transition zone between land and sea that serve as a potential source of biotechnological resources. Brazil's extensive coast contains one of the largest mangrove forests in the world (encompassing an area of 25,000 km2 along all the coast). Endophytic bacteria were isolated from the following three plant species: Rhizophora mangle, Laguncularia racemosa and Avicennia nitida. A large number of these isolates, 115 in total, were evaluated for their ability to fix nitrogen and solubilize phosphorous. Bacteria that tested positive for both of these tests were examined further to determine their level of indole acetic acid production. Two strains with high indole acetic acid production were selected for use as inoculants for reforestation trees, and then the growth of the plants was evaluated under field conditions. The bacterium Pseudomonas fluorescens (strain MCR1.10) had a low phosphorus solubilization index, while this index was higher in the other strain used, Enterobacter sp. (strain MCR1.48). We used the reforestation tree Acacia polyphylla. The results indicate that inoculation with the MCR1.48 endophyte increases Acacia polyphylla shoot dry mass, demonstrating that this strain effectively promotes the plant's growth and fitness, which can be used in the seedling production of this tree. Therefore, we successfully screened the biotechnological potential of endophyte isolates from mangrove, with a focus on plant growth promotion, and selected a strain able to provide limited nutrients and hormones for in plant growth.

Idioma: en.
Resumo: ABSTRACT The leaves of Acacia modesta Wall. have been shown to possess diverse pharmacological properties. Therefore, we aimed at evaluating anti-diabetic, cytotoxic and proliferative effects of extracts of Acacia modesta Wall. leaves. After evaluating the primary and secondary metabolites, anti-diabetic activity of various extracts was assessed by α-amylase inhibition, glucose uptake by yeast cells and non-enzymatic glycosylation of hemoglobin assay. Cytotoxicity and proliferative potential was assessed by MTT (3-(4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide) and short term proliferation assays, respectively, using human liver carcinoma cell line, HepG2. Among other extracts, chloroform extract exhibited 34.16% inhibition of α-amylase, 90.65% inhibition of hemoglobin glycosylation and 94.75% glucose uptake employing α-amylase inhibition, non-enzymatic glycosylation of hemoglobin and glucose uptake by yeast cells assays, respectively. Moreover, extracts exhibited no significant effects on HepG2 cell viability and proliferation. So, this data suggested that chloroform extract of leaves of Acacia modesta Wall., exhibited higher anti-hyperglycemic activity in comparison to extracts in other solvents, while no extract demonstrated cytotoxic and proliferation effects when tested using HepG2 cell line

Título: Deposition and nutritional quality of the litter of pure stands of Eucalyptus camaldulensis and Acacia mangium / Aporte e qualidade nutricional da serapilheira de plantios puros de Eucalyptus camaldulensis e Acacia mangium
Fonte: Biosci. j. (Online);31(4):1081-1091, july/aug. 2015.
Idioma: en.
Resumo: The aim of this study was to evaluate the contribution of pure stands of Eucalyptus camaldulensis and Acacia mangium for litter deposition and nutrient return in a pit of clay extraction in northern Rio de Janeiro (RJ). We conducted a randomized block design experiment with two treatments and three replications. For the evaluation of the annual deposition of litter and nutrients (N, P, K, Ca and Mg), we used circular collectors during a year (from July 2006 to June 2007). The planting of Acacia mangium in clay extraction pits contributed with the largest annual deposition of litter and with a litter of better quality compared to Eucalyptus camaldulensis, with higher levels of P and N and lower C:N and polyphenol:N ratios. This fact possibly allows higher rates of decomposition by edaphic microorganisms and, hence, a faster release of these nutrients to the soil. In addition, the planting of legumes showed higher annual deposition of P and N.

O objetivo deste estudo foi avaliar a contribuição de plantios puros de Eucalyptus camaldulensis (Eucalipto) e Acacia mangium (Acácia) na deposição de serapilheira e retorno de nutrientes em uma cava de extração de argila na região norte fluminense (RJ). Realizou-se um experimento, cujo delineamento utilizado foi o de blocos casualizados com dois tratamentos e três repetições. Para a avaliação do aporte anual de serapilheira e nutrientes (N, P, K, Ca e Mg), utilizaram-se coletores circulares, durante o período de um ano (julho de 2006 a junho de 2007). O plantio de Acacia mangium na cava de extração de argila contribuiu com o maior aporte anual de serapilheira total, bem como, uma serapilheira de melhor qualidade em relação ao Eucalyptus camaldulensis, apresentando maiores teores de P e N e menores relações C:N e Polifenol:N. Este fato possivelmente permite maiores taxas de decomposição pelos microrganismos edáficos, e consequente mais rápida liberação desses nutrientes para o solo. Além disso, o plantio da leguminosa apresentou maior aporte anual de P e N.

Título: The anti-inflammatory and antinociceptive effects of proteins extracted from Acacia farnesiana seeds / Efeito antiiflamatório e antinociceptivo de proteínas extraídas de sementes de Acacia farnesiana
Fonte: Rev. bras. plantas med;18(1):38-47, jan.-mar. 2016. tab, graf.
Idioma: en.
Resumo: ABSTRACT Seeds of Acacia farnesiana are commonly sold in the local markets of northeastern Brazil as a therapeutic agent. The present work aimed to evaluate the anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities of proteins obtained from A. farnesiana seeds. Five different protein fractions (albumin, globulin, prolamin, acidic and basic glutelins) were obtained and investigated for the protein pattern, the presence of hemagglutinating and proteolytic activities. The globulin fraction (GLB) was also evaluated for anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities. Globulins reduced the paw edema induced by carrageenan in a dose-dependent manner, which was accompanied by a reduction of myeloperoxidase activity (p < 0.05). Additionally, GLB reduced the neutrophil peritoneal migration induced by carrageenan. However, GLB was not able to inhibit the edema triggered by dextran. Pre-treatment with globulins reduced the abdominal constrictions induced by acetic acid as well as the paw licking time induced by formalin (69.1% at first phase). However, it did not produce a significant antinociceptive effect in the hot plate test (55-56 °C). Treating the GLB with heat (at 100 °C for 30 min) abolished its anti-edematogenic and hemagglutinating activities. Our results showed that seeds from A. farnesiana are a source of proteins with anti-inflammatory and analgesic properties.

RESUMO Sementes de Acacia farnesiana são comumente vendidas em feiras locais no nordeste do Brasil como agente terapêutico. O presente trabalho objetivou avaliar as atividades antiinflamatória e antinociceptiva de proteínas obtidas de sementes de A. farnesiana. Cinco frações protéicas distintas (albuminas, globulinas, prolaminas, glutelinas ácidas e básicas) foram obtidas e investigadas quanto o perfil de proteínas, presença de atividade hemaglutinante e proteolítica. A fração globulina (GLB) também foi avaliada quanto a presença de atividade antiinflamatória e analgésica. Globulinas reduziram o edema de pata induzido por carragenina de modo dependente da dose que foi acompanhada da redução da atividade da mieloperoxidase (p < 0,05). Em adição, GLB reduziu a migração de neutrófilos para cavidade peritoneal induzida por carragenina. Entretanto, GLB não foi capaz de inibir o edema induzido por dextrana. O pré-tratamento com globulinas reduziu as contorções abdominais induzidas por ácido acético, bem como o tempo de lambedura da pata induzida por formalina (69.1% na primeira fase). Por outro lado, GLB não produziu um efeito antinociceptivo significante no teste de placa quente (55-56 °C). O pré-tratamento de GLB com calor (100 °C por 30 min) aboliu sua atividade anti-edematogênica e hemaglutinante. Nossos resultados mostraram que sementes de A. farnesiana são fonte de proteínas com propriedades antiinflamatórias e analgésicas.
