Effects of antinutritional factors on protein digestibility and amino acid availability in foods.
Digestibility of protein in traditional diets from developing countries such as India, Guatemala, and Brazil is considerably lower compared to that of protein in typical North American diets (54-78Expand

Protein digestibility and quality in products containing antinutritional factors are adversely affected by old age in rats.
The protein digestibility-corrected amino acid score (PDCAAS) has been recommended to be the most suitable method for routine evaluation of protein quality of foods by FAO/WHO. The PDCAAS methodExpand

Impact of foods nutritionally enhanced through biotechnology in alleviating malnutrition in developing countries.
According to United Nations (UN) projections, the world's population will grow from 6.1 billion in 2000 to 8 billion in 2025 and 9.4 billion in 2050. Most (93%) of the increase will take place inExpand

Bioavailability of soy isoflavones in rats Part I: application of accurate methodology for studying the effects of gender and source of isoflavones.
There are limited and controversial reports about the effects of gender and source of isoflavones on their bioavailability. Moreover, several previous studies have not used appropriate methodology toExpand

The influence of dietary vitamin E, fat, and methionine on blood cholesterol profile, homocysteine levels, and oxidizability of low density lipoprotein in the gerbil.
A 90-day feeding study with gerbils was conducted to evaluate the influence of dietary vitamin E levels (25 mg/kg diet, 75 mg/kg, 300 mg/kg, and 900 mg/kg), two levels of dietary methionione (caseinExpand

Soy protein isolate increases hepatic thyroid hormone receptor content and inhibits its binding to target genes in rats.
Our previous studies showed that intake of 20% alcohol-washed soy protein isolate (SPI) significantly increased hepatic thyroid hormone receptor (TR) beta1 protein content in rats. However, whetherExpand

Chromatographic determination of amino acids in foods.
Amino acids in foods exist in a free form or bound in peptides, proteins, or nonpeptide bonded polymers. Naturally occurring L-amino acids are required for protein synthesis and are precursors forExpand

Effect of glycosidation of isoflavones on their bioavailability and pharmacokinetics in aged male rats.
There are limited reports on the bioavailability and pharmacokinetics of isoflavones in elderly humans and aged animals. The present study was conducted to assess the effect of glycosidation ofExpand

Dietary soy protein isolate and isoflavones modulate hepatic thyroid hormone receptors in rats.
Thyroid hormone receptors (TRs) are regulators of many genes involved in cholesterol and lipid metabolism. The purpose of this study was to examine the effect of soy protein isolate (SPI) andExpand
