Highly Efficient Gluten Degradation by Lactobacilli and Fungal Proteases during Food Processing: New Perspectives for Celiac Disease
Food processing by selected sourdough lactobacilli and fungal proteases may be considered an efficient approach to eliminate gluten toxicity. Expand
VSL#3 probiotic preparation has the capacity to hydrolyze gliadin polypeptides responsible for Celiac Sprue.
Proteolytic activity by probiotic VSL#3 may have an importance during food processing to produce pre-digested and tolerated gliadins for increasing the palatability of gluten-free products. Expand
Antibacterial activities of peptides from the water-soluble extracts of Italian cheese varieties.
Water-soluble extracts of 9 Italian cheese varieties that differed mainly for type of cheese milk, starter, technology, and time of ripening were fractionated by reversed-phase fast protein liquid chromatography and peptide sequences were identified by comparison with a proteomic database. Expand
Molecularly imprinted electrosynthesized polymers:  new materials for biomimetic sensors.
Molecular imprinting electropolymerization is proposed as a possible strategy for the preparation of new materials with molecular recognition properties to be applied in biomimetic sensors. Expand
Identification of allergenic milk proteins markers in fined white wines by capillary liquid chromatography-electrospray ionization-tandem mass spectrometry.
The CapLC-ESI-MS-MS approach appears to be a useful tool for screening purposes as well as a confirmatory tool for the unequivocal identification of caseins in ELISA positive samples. Expand
Characterization of caffeic acid enzymatic oxidation by-products by liquid chromatography coupled to electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry.
The products of tyrosinase-catalyzed caffeic acid oxidation at pH 6.5 were investigated using high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) coupled to electrospray ionization mass spectrometryExpand
LC-ion trap electrospray MS-MS for the determination of cyclopiazonic acid in milk samples.
An LC-ESI-MS (negative ions) method was developed for the determination of cyclopiazonic acid (CPA), a mycotoxin produced by many Aspergillus and Penicillium genuses, in milk samples and produced almost quantitative recoveries of CPA from milk. Expand
Simultaneous separation and identification of oligomeric procyanidins and anthocyanin-derived pigments in raw red wine by HPLC-UV-ESI-MSn.
Samples of raw red wine were analysed without any pre-treatment using HPLC with detection based on UV absorbance and Electrospray Ionisation Sequential Mass Spectrometry (ESI-MSn), which led to the identification of 41 pigments, which can be classified into five groups. Expand
Determination of ochratoxin A in meat products by high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to electrospray ionisation sequential mass spectrometry.
A method based on liquid chromatography with electrospray ionisation ion trap mass spectrometry, for the determination of ochratoxin A (OTA) in meat products using ochratoxin B (OTB) as an internalExpand
Simultaneous determination of phenyl- and sulfonyl-urea herbicides in river water at sub-parts-per-billion level by on-line preconcentration and liquid chromatography-tandem mass spectrometry.
A selective reaction monitoring (SRM) approach, based on the detection of a peculiar fragment for each analyte, was chosen for MS/MS analysis, in order to enhance selectivity and reproducibility of three sulfonyl-urea herbicides in water at sub-ppb concentration ranges. Expand
