Science is the
drive for new knowledge, the basis for the development of new products
and by that for advice, application and sale. New products, methods
and innovative preparations based on natural substances for the
health of human, animal and plants alike are developed constantly
by the Temmen GmbH.
Some products are already available,
others have to be certified or are still in development. The selling
is made with priority by partner companies, wholesale and trade.
An emphasis of the research activities lies in the search for resistance
causes of plants and mammals against diseases. Already a few years
ago a resistance mechanism against powdery mildew spp. was discovered
by Dr. K.H. Temmen (click here
for more information), which is based on differently fast evolving
embryonic cells in susceptible and resistant plants. Beside genetically
specified characteristics and the enviroment certain cell aspect
ratio hormones play a major role in this mechanism (Patent DE 197
46 366 A1).
Similar observation s were made with plant cancer, which is caused
by bacteria in young cells. As generally known, microorganisms like
viruses and bacteria play a major role in the emergence of cancer
in mammals. The cell stage is regarded decisive for the release
of a tumor (Patent DE 100 32 296 A1).
Although viruses can increase in all marrow cells, they cause however
only in immature cells a leukaemic transformation.The meaning of
the cell stage is clarified by the fact that one finds no cancer
for example in high-specialized cells such as muscle cells as well
as cells with short life span such as small intestine epithelium,
since these cells die fast continuously due to the short development.
There is a connection between age and cancer, because as the aging
process of the individual is slowing down, so is the aging process
of the cells, so that a few, enough however to cause a carzinom,
cannot escape the susceptible phase and fall victim to cancer. The
influence of the enviroment on cell development is variously. That
nutrition is taking influence on cell development of mammals and
by that on the susceptibility to microorganisms, could not be proven
so far.With plants it was however stated that constant high nitrogen
additions the cell development is being slowed down and the susceptibility
is particularly increased in relation to powdery mildew. A similar
effect was observed in experiments with photohormones, of which
Auxines are ranked as the main representatives.
