Evolutionary relationships in the showy mistletoe family Loranthaceae. The mistletoes in Singapore are largely dispersed by birds, such as flowerpeckers and bulbuls. As such, the authorities sometimes have to manage the number of mistletoes growing on our trees. Like the previous species, they have side roots running along the length of the host branch, sticking their haustoria into the latter at various intervals. As mistletoes are attached to the stems and branches of trees or shrubs, they are hence also often called “stem parasites”.

Many Singaporeans are familiar with the tradition of using mistletoes as Christmas decorations in temperate countries, and that a man and a woman who meet under the mistletoe decoration are obliged to kiss.

However, I have also seen instances whereby a single stem attaching itself to the host branch without the many side roots. They are pinkish-orange in colour and tubular in shape. About Me Ron Yeo Just another nature lover. However people in Indonesia usually called the mistletoe depend on the host plant where it grew, such as benalu mangga mistletoe which used mango as host.


Chronic inflammation in mice model that are initiated by the DSS causes colitis, deoxyribonucleic acid DNA damage and encourages the emergence of adenoma [ 1112 ]. In the photo above, you can see the budding male flowers the two yellow structures on both sides of the female flower. Availability of data and materials We have no special datasets in this article, the datasets supporting the conclusions of this article are included within this paper.

The percentage of BrdU-labeled S-phase cells were determined by observing labeled cells undergoing of the S-phase of the cell cycle.

Pharmacokinetics and bioavailability of quercetin glycosides in humans. Also, a very wide variety of animals feed on the leaves, shoots, fruits called pseudo berries as they lack true ovulesflowers and nectar of mistletoes. Cell cycle analysis of colonic epithelial cells treated with or without DPE.

The flower has the appearance of a little hairy paw, opening on one side. Competing interests The authors declare that they have no competing interests.

The leaves of young plants may appear more elongated though. They are green on top, but covered with a layer of fine brown hair below, giving it a “rusty” appearance.

As its common name implies, it has no leaves, and in fact, unlike the previous species, does not even have phyllodes.
