Cinnamaldehyde is a major and a bioactive compound isolated from the leaves of Cinnamomum osmophloeum kaneh. It possesses anti-diabetic properties in vitro and in vivo and has anti-inflammatory and anti-cancer effects. To explore whether cinnamaldehyde was linked to altered advanced glycation end products (AGE)-mediated diabetic nephropathy, the molecular(More)
The optimal conditions for the de-esterification reaction of tomato pectinesterase (PE) and citrus PE was 0.1-0.2 M NaCl and at pH 7.5-8.5, 65 degrees C, almost identical to those for the transacylation reaction as observed by turbidity (absorbance at 400 nm) change. Among the PEs tested, pea pod PE presented the most remarkable catalysis on the(More)
The antimutagenic effects on Salmonella typhimurium TA98 and TA100 strains and antiproliferative effects on leukemia cell lines (U937 and HL-60) of peanut protein isolate (PPI), peanut protein isolate enzyme hydrolysate (PPIEH), roasted and defatted peanut dregs (RDPD), and roasted and defatted peanut dregs enzyme hydrolysate (RDPDEH) were investigated. The(More)
The present study evaluates the effects of syrup concentrations of natural raisin microflora culture on the characteristics of sourdough and sourdough bread. The original total titratable acidity (TTA) of the starter solutions were between 10.30 and 10.45 mL, after 96 hours of incubation, the TTA of the starter solution increased to 11.30-11.85 mL. The(More)
