The high nutritive value suggests that Phoenix dactylifera can be used as formulation in various dietary supplements.33. The study concluded that tested varieties of Date palm have the potential to inhibit bacterial biofilms and can be used for therapeutic purposes against biofilm producing pathogens. Al-Hooti, S., Sidhu, J.S., Al-Otaibi, J., Al-Ameeri, H. and Qabazard, H. (1997). The extracts of the selected varieties of P. dactylifera i-e Ajwa and Khalas showed excellent inhibition potential against bacterial biofilm, hence successful antibiofilm agent inhibiting the growth of bacterial biofilms. Abstract. Phoenix dactylifera. The type of fruit depends on the glucose, fructose, and sucrose content. Single stemmed palm, cycad or tree, Upright Fruits of the date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L., Arecaceae) are a commercial product of high economic and nutritional relevance in the Middle East.Global date production has constantly expanded to 8.3 million tonnes in 2017. ORCID iDMuhammad Riaz https://orcid.org/0000-0002-5524-7735. The dry date seed contains 7.9% moisture, 5.2% protein,6.8% fat, 65.5% carbohydrates, 13.6% fiber, and 0.89% ash. 'Dayri', 'Deglet Nour', 'Zahdi'), and dry (e.g. So, DPPH scavenging potential increases by increasing the quantity of various extracts of Khalas and Ajwa.37 Previous studies reported the highest concentration of polyphenols in date fruits among the dried fruits because of the extreme temperature and sunlight exposure for date fruits.7 Antioxidant potential of 28 fruits routinely used in China has been studied by Guo et al. Young date leaves are cooked and eaten as a vegetable, as is the terminal bud or heart, though its removal kills the palm. The results indicated that the antioxidant activity of this plant extract was equivalent to 97.67 ± 0.07% and 81.84 ± 0.11% radical inhibition in vitro for Ajwa and Khalas, respectively. Eventually this stock was reintroduced to Africa and led to the U.S. production of dates in Yuma, Arizona, and the Bard Valley in California.. Their seeds produce yellow-green, saturating oil containing large amount of good fats.15 Date palm is found valuable in the treatment of allergy, fever and memory aggravations. When Muslims break fast in the evening meal of Ramadan, it is traditional to eat a date first. Sharing links are not available for this article.  However, reports on the properties of different date varieties obtained from different origins are still limited. Traditionally the female flowers are the most available for sale and weigh 300–400 grams (11–14 oz). They are particularly available to eat whole at Christmas time.

We designed this study to assess the antitumorigenic effects of date palm pits extracts from different Emiratis varieties. The date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) is one of the oldest cultivated trees and is intimately tied to the history of human civilization.There are hundreds of commercial cultivars with distinct fruit shapes, colors, and sizes growing mainly in arid lands from the west of North Africa to India. 1: DNA of calf thymus + H2O2+ FeSO4, 2: DNA of calf thymus, 3-5: (10, 50 and 100 mg/mL) Concentrations of Khalas extract + calf thymus DNA + H2O2, 6-8: (10, 50 and 100 mg/mL) Concentrations of Ajwa extract + calf thymus DNA+ H2O2. Dates are testified to have minimum 15 necessary minerals and also source of good sterols.  The date palm was a popular garden plant in Roman peristyle gardens, though it would not bear fruit in the more temperate climate of Italy. Figure 4. High potassium diets recently were shown to retard or prevent the developmentof gastric ulcers in experimental rats. IDENTIFICATION OF Phoenix dactylifera L. VARIETIES BASED ON AMPLIFIED FRAGMENT LENGTH POLYMORPHISM (AFLP) MARKERS . Both extracts at varying concentrations inhibited the bacterial biofilm formation. The leaflets are 30 cm (12 in) long and 2 cm (0.79 in) wide. The overall production, usage and industrialization of dates are expanding due to its dietary and health benefits.17. The external structure of pulp of Ajwa and Khalas showed morphology which has importance for cultivators to distinguish and recognize the potential modification among species and cultivars within the species.42 Scanning electron microscopic picture of Ajwa and Khalas are presented in Figure 4. Phoenix excelsior Cav.. Phoenix iberica D.Rivera, S.Ríos & Obón. Then the slides were rinsed, stained and the biofilms were dissolved using 30% glacial acetic acid.  The draft genome sequence was improved in 2019 with the release of a more complete genome sequence using small molecule real-time sequencing technology by a team from the New York University Abu Dhabi Center for Genomics and Systems Biology and the UAE University Khalifa Center for Genetic Engineering and Biotechnology in the United Arab Emirates. Results of the antibacterial activities of studied varieties of P. dactylifera namely Ajwa and Khalas by using 100mg/mL concentration against selected bacterial strains i-e P. multocida and B. Subtilis are given in Table 3 as inhibition zone (IZ; mm) and minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC; µg/mL). The authors are thankful to Higher Education Commission (HEC) of Pakistan for providing funds for this research project under NRPU Project Pin No. For more information view the SAGE Journals Article Sharing page. MATERIAL AND METHODS Plant Material Fresh leaves of three Phoenix dactylifera varieties (Deglet Nour, Medjhoul, and Barhee) were harvested in March from the garden of Sciences Faculty, Sfax, Tunisia. A date palm cultivar, probably what used to be called Judean date palm, is renowned for its long-lived orthodox seed, which successfully sprouted after accidental storage for 2000 years.  These have generally been replaced by an inexpensive pale-colored knobbled plastic fork that resembles a date branch (example), which is traditionally included with numerous brands of prepackaged trays of dates (example), though this practice has declined in response to increased use of resealable packaging and calls for fewer single-use plastics. There is archaeological evidence of date cultivation in Mehrgarh around 7000 BCE, a Neolithic civilization in what is now western Pakistan, and in eastern Arabia between 5530 and 5320 calBC. Total ash is a measure of the presence of inorganic compound in the sample. Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectra confirmed the presence of O–H, C=C and C–O functional groups in tested extracts. 15 October 2008. Ajwa and Khalas protected the calf thymus DNA against damage caused by hydroxyl radicals produced by fenton reagent. 1 Introduction. The date palm, Phoenix dactylifera, is possibly second only to the coconut palm in economic importance throughout the world. 'Barhee', 'Halawy', 'Khadrawy', 'Medjool'); semi-dry (e.g. Manual pollination is done by skilled labourers on ladders, or by use of a wind machine. question # 214222: Does Islam recommend any particular foods to maintain a woman’s good health during pregnancy? The mechanical stability of the erythrocytic membrane is a better sign of the effect of various in vitro studies by chemical constituents for the screening of cytotoxicity.

P. dactylifera is the type species of genus Phoenix, which contains 12–19 species of wild date palms, and is the major source of commercial production. Date palm (Phoenix dactylifera L.) is a monocot, dioecious and high longevity tropical plant greatly considered due to its high economic importance in Middle East. , Stripped fruit clusters are used as brooms. Single- or multiple-trunked, pinnate palm to 15-25 m (rarely 30 m) tall. However, numerous established epidemiological studies reported that increased intake of fruits and vegetables are associated with indisposition and mortality from numerous persistent diseases such as cancer, cardio-vascular diseases, coronary heart diseases, aging, atherosclerosis, neuro-degenerative disorders and inflammation.1 World Health Organization (WHO) reported that 80 percent of global population rely on herbal medicines for certain feature of their primary health care requirements. The study was conducted on sun-dried dates due to their higher consumption compared with fresh dates. All the prepared smears on glass slides were examined microscopically.30, Extracts of Date palm sample were characterized using scanning electron microscope (FEI Quanta 250, Czech Republic) for surface morphology following the standard procedure.31, FTIR spectroscopy was performed by mixing grinded forms of Ajwa and Khalas with KBr to find out the active functional groups.32. There are hundreds of commercial cultivars with distinct fruit shapes, colors, and sizes growing mainly in arid lands from the west of North Africa to India. Abstract: The amplified fragment length polymorphism (AFLP) technique was applied to identify palm varieties.  These act as free radical scavenger or captor, hence effective antioxidant.7 The presence of significant amounts of phenolic acids in dates has been reported in various published studies from several research groups.8,9 Mansouri et al.

Results are expressed as mean percentages ± standard deviation (SD) of triplicate measurements on dry matter basis. Authors also acknowledge the guidance and support of Incharge, Bioassay section, Medicinal Biochemistry Research Lab, Department of Biochemistry, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad, Pakistan, in conducting and completing this research work. Dates can also be chopped and used in a range of sweet and savory dishes, from tajines (tagines) in Morocco to puddings, ka'ak (types of Arab cookies) and other dessert items. Lashermes2 and S.Hamon2 Laboratoire de Phytopathologie, Genetique et Lutte microbiologique (LPGLM), Centre Regional du Haouz-Presahara, INRA, BP. Second-grade dates ( Phoenix dactylifera L.), with hard texture, from three selected Tunisian cultivars (Allig, Deglet Nour, and Bejo) were analysed from their antioxidant activities using DPPH radical scavenging activity, FRAP assay, H 2 O 2 scavenging activity, and metal chelating activity. Values are mean ± standard deviation (SD) of triplicate measurements. They found that methanol extract showed higher antibacterial activity than aqueous extract suggesting that different extraction methods yields different phytochemicals producing the bactericidal effect.41. Two varieties of P. dactylifera (Date palm) locally known as Ajwa and Khalas were obtained from the local market of Faisalabad. A major palm pest, the red palm beetle (Rhynchophorus ferrugineus) currently poses a significant threat to date production in parts of the Middle East as well as to iconic landscape specimens throughout the Mediterranean world.  Some designs were patented. Abstract—Mass losses of Phoenix dactylifera date palm seeds (DPSs) were measured using a thermo-gravimetric analyzer (TGA). studied different varieties of date fruits cultivated in Algeria and identified the major phenolic acids such as sinapic acid, ferulic acid and p-coumaric acid.10 Saudi date fruit varieties contain p-coumaric acid, gallic acid and ferulic acid derivatives as the major phenolic acids.11 Flavonoids are the polyphenolic secondary metabolites found in vegetables and a variety of fruits act as antioxidant and anti-inflammatory agents with notable health benefits.12, Dates are used as the principal diet in Middle East for thousands of years. Dates (especially Medjool and Deglet Nour) are also cultivated in America in southern California, Arizona and southern Florida in the United States and in Sonora and Baja California in Mexico. , Dates have been a staple food of the Middle East and the Indus Valley for thousands of years. Ikbel Souli, Monia Jemni, Lizette Liliana Rodríguez‐Verástegui, Nizar Chaira, Francisco Artés, Ali Ferchichi, Phenolic composition profiling of Tunisian 10 varieties of common dates (Phoenix dactylifera L.) at tamar stage using LC‐ESI‐MS and antioxidant activity, Journal of Food Biochemistry, 10.1111/jfbc.12634, 42, 6, (2018). Except the nutritious importance, date fruits contain large quantity of compounds like carotenoids and phenolics due to which they exhibit antioxidant and antimutagenic potential.8 Dates and their components exhibited a part in diseases prevention due to their anti-oxidant, anti-inflammatory and anti-bacterial potential. The MIC was performed to find out the smallest concentration of Date palm extracts that inhibited the growth of bacteria.28. Phoenix dactylifera L. (Date palm) is the most widely consumed fruit around the world and is rich source of nutrients containing dietary fibers, minerals, vitamins, sugar, protein and antioxidants with potent bioactivities against various microbial pathogens. Mature date palms can produce 150–300 lb (70–140 kg) of dates per harvest season. 1 Introduction. Pure calf thymus DNA formed a complete and clear band in second lane that was taken as standard of negative control and lane 1 is the positive control in which calf thymus DNA is treated with H2O2 and FeSO4. Dates are one of the ingredients of jallab, a Middle-Eastern fruit syrup. Valorization of Tunisian secondary date varieties (Phoenix dactylifera L.) by hydrothermal treatments: New fiber concentrates with antioxidant properties. Date palm seeds contain 0.56–5.4% lauric acid. These particular Date palm varieties were identified, classified and approved from Botany Department, University of Agriculture, Faisalabad.
