Research into the health benefits of faba beans has found a powerful combination of properties likely to significantly boost the grain's 'functional foods' status... In GRDC-funded experiments by PhD candidate Siem Siah at Charles Sturt University (CSU) - with researchers from CSU, CSIRO and the New South Wales Department of Primary Industries - phenolic compounds from Rossa and Nura faba beans were applied to five different cancer cell lines in laboratory experiments... In other experiments on the interaction with physiologically important enzymes, the research showed that phenolic extracts from faba beans inhibited angiotensin-converting enzyme, a common target of pharmaceutical medication for hypertension...

The aim of the work is to identify the regulatory proteins and the pathway(s) activating XERO2... The aim of our experiment was to determine the early changes in gene expression occurring in response to cold... We chose to use Arabidopsis suspension cells (undifferentiated plant cells in liquid culture) as these provide a useful model for studying the cold response as every single cell is exposed to the same temperature; in whole plant work this is not possible...

Survival of rhizobia on seed is generally poor and desiccation is a major factor affecting cell viability... A review of current literature reveals that rhizobia has some inherent mechanisms for desiccation tolerance... Survival of rhizobia after growth in broth cultures was compared with that of cells extracted from peat...
