Lastly, cells grown in monolayer culture do not behave as they do in living organisms where growth occurs in a threedimensional matrix under the influence of a heterogeneous population of neighboring cells and growth factors. Though cell culture has been successfully used for drug development, this does not guarantee its effectiveness for the applications described in BMA. 28 Matthew D. Thompson and Henry J. 2. In vitro assessment Of the metabolic defects mentioned in Section 2, that is, altered glucose metabolism, chronic inflammation, cellular oxidation, and endotoxemia, cellular oxidation has been the focus of many labs investigating the health benefits of crops.

P. injection of MNU (50 mg/kg body weight) at 21 days of age. One week later, rats were randomized into experimental groups. Feeding of the dry bean supplemented diet was initiated beginning 7 days postcarcinogen. The experiments were terminated 7 weeks postcarcinogen. , 2009). 3. 005) in two independent experiments; no effect was associated with seed coat color or ORAC (Table 6 and Fig. 4). White kidney beans of Andean origin, race Nueva Granada, were found to have twice the cancer inhibitory activity as navy beans from the Middle American region, race Mesoamerica.

To benefit from these discoveries in the short term, agronomists would identify environments in which the various genotypes of a crop could be grown and in working with other disciplines within BMA, develop feasible approaches by which to provide crop genotype medleys for human consumption. In the intermediate term, being the typical timeframe needed to breed, select, and introduce a new cultivar, plant breeders would use breeding and selection to introduce the desired traits into commercially important genotypes for the various global markets in which that crop is consumed.
