Peroxidases are heavily implicated in plant cell wall cross-linking reactions, altering the properties of the wall and impacting its utilization. Polysaccharide-polysaccharide cross-linking in grasses is achieved by dehydrodi-merization of hydroxycinnamate-polysaccharide esters; a complex array of hydroxycinnamic acid dehydrodimers are released by(More)
Following saponification of maize bran insoluble fiber a ferulic acid dehydrotrimer was isolated using Sephadex LH-20 chromatography. Structural identification was carried out using UV-spectroscopy, mass spectrometry and 1D and 2D NMR experiments (13 C-1 H HSQC, HMBC). UV-spectroscopy indicated characteristics of ferulate structures, mass spectrometry(More)
Cell wall cross-linking can have a substantial effect on the properties of the wall. To estimate cross-linking (between arabinoxylans) in cereal ®bres, dehydrodiferulate levels were measured in soluble and insoluble dietary ®bre (SDF and IDF) isolated from whole grains of maize (Zea mays L), wheat (Triticum aestivum L), spelt (Triticum spelta L), rice(More)
Three complex heteroxylan side-chains acylated with ferulate and one arabinosyl ester of p-coumaric acid have been isolated from maize bran insoluble fibre after acidic hydrolysis and fractionation by gel permeation chromatography and semi-preparative RP-HPLC. The complete structural elucidation of all isolated compounds was achieved by 1D/2D NMR(More)
Two new dehydrotriferulic acids were isolated from saponified maize bran insoluble fiber using Sephadex LH-20 chromatography followed by semi-preparative RP-HPLC. Based on UV-spectroscopy, mass spectroscopy and one- and two-dimensional NMR experiments, the structures were identified as 8-O-4,8-O-4-dehydrotriferulic acid and(More)
The first saccharide ester of a dehydrodiferulic acid (DFA) other than 5-5-DFA has been isolated from maize bran insoluble fibre after acidic hydrolysis and fractionation by gel chromatography and semi-preparative RP-HPLC. HPLC-MS along with 1D, 2D and 3D NMR spectra provided the requisite structural evidence that it is the di-5-O-l-arabinosyl ester of(More)
Two new dehydrotriferulic acids and two dehydrotetraferulic acids were isolated from saponified maize bran insoluble fiber using size exclusion chromatography on Bio-Beads S-X3 followed by Sephadex LH-20 chromatography and semipreparative phenyl-hexyl reversed phase high-performance liquid chromatography. On the basis of UV spectroscopy, mass spectrometry,(More)
The association of ferulic acid, an alkali-extractable phenolic acid in amaranth (Amaranthus caudatus L., Amaranthaceae) insoluble fiber (trans-ferulic acid: 620 microg.g-1, cis-ferulic acid: 203 microg.g-1), and non-starch polysaccharides was investigated. Enzymatic hydrolysis of insoluble amaranth fiber released several feruloylated oligosaccharides that(More)
Hen's egg white has been reported as a causative agent of allergic reactions, with ovalbumin, conalbumin, ovomucoid, and lysozyme being the major allergens. However, little is known about the effects of processing with heat and high pressure on the allergenicity of egg white proteins as ingredients in meat. For this purpose, the allergenic characteristics(More)
Cross-linking of arabinoxylans via 8-8-coupled diferulates as demonstrated by isolation and identification of diarabinosyl 8-8(cyclic)-dehydrodiferulate from maize bran Abstract Dehydrodiferulates are likely the most important arabinoxylan cross-links in cereals and grasses in general. However, association of dehydrodiferulates and arabinoxylans has only(More)
