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.

- 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….
- Complete genome sequence of iris potyvirus B infecting Lilium lancifolium in Chinaby Qi Lin on August 4, 2022 at 10:00 am
The complete genome sequence of a virus from lily (Lilium lancifolium Thunb.) growing in Huoshan County, Anhui Province, China, was determined. The whole genome consists of 9558 nucleotides, excluding the poly(A) tail, and encodes a 3061-amino-acid polyprotein (GenBank number ON365558) typical of potyviruses. This is the first complete genome sequence of iris potyvirus B (IPB), for which only a partial sequence from Iris domestica was reported previously. Comparative analysis of this genome…
- WUSCHEL-related homeobox genes cooperate with cytokinin to promote bulbil formation in Lilium lancifoliumby Guoren He on June 7, 2022 at 10:00 am
The bulbil is an important vegetative reproductive organ in triploid tiger lily (Lilium lancifolium). Based on our previously obtained transcriptome data, we screened two WUSCHEL-related homeobox (WOX) genes closely related to bulbil formation, LlWOX9 and LlWOX11. However, the biological functions and regulatory mechanisms of LlWOX9 and LlWOX11 are unclear. In this study, we cloned the full-length coding sequences of LlWOX9 and LlWOX11. Transgenic Arabidopsis (Arabidopsis thaliana) showed…
