The antioxidant activity of resveratrol (1) and several acylated and glycosylated derivatives on fish oil enriched systems has been studied. Two long-chain acylated derivatives, 3-stearoylresveratrol (2) and 4'-stearoylresveratrol (3), and three glucosyl derivatives, resveratrol-3-beta-d-glucopyranoside (piceid, 4), resveratrol-3,5-di-beta-d-glucopyranoside(More)
The effect of natural phenolic compounds on the antioxidant and prooxidant activity of lactoferrin was studied in liposomes and oil-in-water emulsions containing iron. The antioxidants tested with lactoferrin were alpha-tocopherol, ferulic acid, coumaric acid, tyrosol, and natural phenolic extracts obtained from three different extra-virgin olive oils and(More)
A new sugarcane (Saccharum officinarum L.) fructanase which hydrolyzes both high molecular weight polysaccharides mid R:Fructose(4):Galactitol(5)mid R:(n) (SP) and moderate-sized carbohydrates mid R:Fructose(2):Galactitol(3)3mid R:(n) (MMWC) has been purified from sugarcane juice. The K(m) value has been estimated to be 33.7 micrograms per milliliter and 20(More)
UNLABELLED The study innovatively pinpoints target proteins of carbonylation, a key PTM induced by oxidative stress, in the SHROB (genetically obese spontaneously hypertensive) rat model of metabolic syndrome (MetS). Protein carbonylation was assessed by a fluorescence-labeling proteomics approach, and complemented with biometric and biochemical markers of(More)
Natural phenolic antioxidants have been tested in hake (Merluccious merluccious) microsomes as inhibitors of lipid oxidation promoted by fish muscle prooxidants: hemoglobin (Hb), enzymatic NADH-iron and nonenzymatic ascorbate-iron. The phenolics selected were as follows: (a) a grape phenolic extract (OW), (b) a fraction (IV) with isolated grape procyanidins(More)
The increasing incidence of the metabolic syndrome (MetS), a combination of risk factors before the onset of CVD and type 2 diabetes, encourages studies on the role of functional food components such as long-chain n-3 PUFA as preventive agents. In the present study, we explore the effect of EPA and DHA supplementation in different proportions on(More)
Hydroxytyrosol, a natural phenolic compound obtained from olive oil byproduct, was characterized as an antioxidant in three different foodstuffs rich in fish lipids: (a) bulk cod liver oil (40% of omega-3 PUFAs), (b) cod liver oil-in-water emulsions (4% of omega-3 PUFAs), and (c) frozen minced horse mackerel ( Trachurus trachurus) muscle. Hydroxytyrosol was(More)
Benzoic acid-derived phenolics (p-hydroxybenzoic acid, 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid, vanillic acid, syringic acid, and gallic acid) and the polyphenols epicatechin and epigallocatechin gallate (EGCG) were evaluated for their efficiency in regenerating alpha-tocopherol from alpha-tocopheroxyl radical in comparison with ascorbyl palmitate, which is known to(More)

A procedure for the determination of volatile compounds derived from lipid oxidation of fish muscle samples is presented. Analytes are concentrated on a solid-phase microextraction fiber employed in the headspace mode (HS-SPME), and selectively determined using gas chromatography in combination with mass spectrometry (GC-MS). The influence of several(More)
