Tiger Lily (Lilium lancifolium)
Lilium lancifolium, a lily native to Asia and the Russian far east, is an herbaceous flowering plant that starts from a bulb. It is also now established in eastern North America and has many successful varieties. It is distinguished by a bright orange flower with dark spots on petals that curl back to the base, and the dark, reproductive bulbils that grow at the base of its leaves. The bulbs generate clones of the plant they come from. Historically prized in the east for its edible bulbs, it is used as an ornamental garden plant in the west. A variety of extracts from Tiger Lily bulbs are being investigated for cancer cell suppression, promotion of beneficial gut biome, as well as the treatment of the effects of menopause, depression, and inflammation.

- Effect of Microwave Treatments Combined with Hot-Air Drying on Phytochemical Profiles and Antioxidant Activities in Lily Bulbs (Lilium lancifolium)by Hong Quan on June 28, 2023 at 10:00 am
Lily bulbs (Lilium lancifolium Thunb.) are rich in phytochemicals and have many potential biological activities which could be deep-processed for food or medicine purposes. This study investigated the effects of microwaves combined with hot-air drying on phytochemical profiles and antioxidant activities in lily bulbs. The results showed that six characteristic phytochemicals were identified in lily bulbs. They also showed that with an increase in microwave power and treatment time, regaloside A,…
- Identification and complete genome sequence of iris potyvirus A, which causes dwarfing and foliar chlorosis with mosaic or mottle disease symptoms on lily (Lilium lancifolium Thunb.) in Chinaby Fang Wang on June 24, 2023 at 10:00 am
Lily plants (Lilium lancifolium Thunb.) exhibiting dwarfing and foliar chlorosis with mosaic or mottle disease symptoms were found in Anhui Province, China. We used high-throughput sequencing of small RNA to survey the virus in the lily cultivation region of Anhui Province. Here, we report the identification and complete genome sequence of the viral agent. It contains 9733 nucleotides, excluding the poly(A) tail, and encodes a polyprotein of 3063 amino acids. The complete polyprotein ORF shows…
- Rhizospheric microbial consortium of Lilium lancifolium Thunb. causes lily root rot under continuous cropping systemby Liangliang Dai on November 17, 2022 at 11:00 am
Tiger lily (Lilium lancifolium Thunb.) is a cash crop with a long history of cultivation in China. Its roots have long been used as a valuable component of Chinese medicine. Continuous cropping, the conventional planting approach for tiger lily, often leads to severe root rot disease, but it is not yet clear how this planting method leads to root rot. In this study, we analyzed the rhizosphere microbiome and predicted microbial protein function in tiger lily planted with the continuous cropping…
- Long-term intake of Lilium lancifolium mitigated osteoarthritic effects by suppressing inflammatory cytokines in a dog modelby Jeong-Hwi Cho on October 31, 2022 at 10:00 am
CONCLUSION: L. lancifolium supplementation represents a possible therapeutic and management option in this model of OA.
- Systematic evaluation on the physicochemical characteristics of a series polysaccharides extracted from different edible lilies by ultrasound and subcritical waterby Zihan Song on October 7, 2022 at 10:00 am
A series polysaccharide samples extracted from three edible lilies (Lilium davidii var. willmottiae, Lilium brownii var. viridulum, and Lilium lancifolium) by subcritical water and ultrasound-assisted extraction were systematically compared. The results showed that extraction method was a more important factor than lily species. Subcritical water extracted lily polysaccharides (S-LP) with higher yield, molecular weight, neutral glucose and uronic acid content as well as apparent viscosity….
