Changes in aquaporin gene expression and magnetic resonance imaging of water status in peach tree flower buds during dormancy.
Findings may reflect the activation of inter- and intracell communication through membrane transport properties of aquaporins resulting in a gradual increase in water content to that required for bud activity at the end of endodormancy.
Formation of grain chalkiness and changes in water distribution in developing rice caryopses grown under high-temperature stress
Water penetration into rice grains during soaking observed by gradient echo magnetic resonance imaging
T2 distribution of boiled dry spaghetti measured by MRI and its internal structure observed by fluorescence microscopy
Effects of Soaking and High-Pressure Treatment on the Qualities of Cooked Rice
In this study, changes in rice qualities from High-Pressure (HP) treatment were investigated. Milled rice grains were presoaked in water at 25 and 55°C for 30 min, subjected to HP treatment at 400…
Moisture Distribution and Texture of Various Types of Cooked Spaghetti
ABSTRACT Cooked spaghetti of various types (fresh, dried, frozen, luncheon, and long-life spaghetti) was examined for moisture distribution by magnetic resonance imaging (MRI). Moisture content was…
Visualisation of Moisture Distribution during Development of Rice Caryopses (Oryza sativa L.) by Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Microimaging
A striped pattern of water was observed on the surface of the endosperm in the three-dimensional images reconstructed from maximum intensity projections of the spikelets, supporting a previously stated hypothesis that water flows from the pericarp vascular bundle onto the nucellus.
Change in the Status of Water in Japanese Noodles During and After Boiling Observed by NMR Micro Imaging
A correlation between moisture content (M, g water/ g dry matter) and transverse relaxation time (T 2 ) of water protons in standard wheat gel samples was established by NMR. Changes in moisture…
Moisture Distribution and Diffusion in Cooked Spaghetti Studied by NMR Imaging and Diffusion Model
ABSTRACT Moisture diffusion in spaghetti during boiling and holding after boiling was analyzed with a cylinder diffusion model based on moisture content mapped by magnetic resonance imaging. The…
