Effect of galactooligosaccharides on calcium absorption and preventing bone loss in ovariectomized rats.
TLDR
GOS, which is fermented by bacteria in the lower part of the intestine, enhanced volatile fatty acid production, and thus prevented bone loss and lower serum total cholesterol concentration in the ovariectomized rats. Expand
Influence of galactooligosaccharides on the human fecal microflora.
The effects of galactooligosaccharides intake on fecal microflora and their metabolism were investigated in twelve healthy volunteers, in whom the numbers of indigenous bifidobacteria areExpand
Effects of Administration of Galactooligosaccharides on the Human Faecal Microflora, Stool Weight and Abdominal Sensation
TLDR
Results of this study show that galactooligosaccharides are a superior growth-promoting factor for bifidobacteria, and, moreover, have the ability to increase the multiplication of lactobacilli in the human intestinal microflora. Expand
Swimming endurance capacity of mice is increased by chronic consumption of medium-chain triglycerides.
TLDR
It is suggested that increases in the enzyme activities of the tricarboxylic acid cycle and ketone body utilization associated with the chronic administration of an MCT-containing diet enhance swim capacity in mice. Expand
An adjustable-current swimming pool for the evaluation of endurance capacity of mice.
TLDR
The results indicate that the apparatus employed in the present study is suitable for the evaluation of the endurance capacity of mice and that is useful for detecting the effects of dietary differences and drug pretreatments on this capacity. Expand
Simultaneous determination of glucose, ethanol and lactate in alcoholic beverages and serum by amperometric flow injection analysis with immobilized enzyme reactors.
TLDR
Application of the system to alcoholic beverages and control serum was described and the results were compared with those of free enzymatic, spectrophotometric analysis (F-kit or C-test method). Expand
Lowering effect of phenolic glycosides on the rise in postprandial glucose in mice.
TLDR
Since glycyrrhizin, arbutin, and hydroquinone-alpha-glucoside blunted to varying degrees the postprandial blood glucose rise following glucose ingestion, they may be useful adjuvants for the treatment of diabetic subjects. Expand
Investigations of the potential bioavailability of 210Po in some foodstuffs.
TLDR
It has been shown that 210Po is more effectively extracted from lamb's liver and crabmeat than it is from each of the other tissues and a similar pattern of extractability is also evident for aqueous solutions of citric acid on crabmeat and mussel flesh. Expand
A rapid microplate method for the proliferation assay of fungi and the antifungal susceptibility testing using the colorimetric microbial viability assay
TLDR
The proposed method was useful to measure the proliferation of 18 kinds of moulds and seven kinds of yeasts, including representative pathogens, and linear relationships between the absorbance and viable fungal cell density were obtained for all fungi, suggesting that the absorbsance change reflected the fungal proliferation. Expand
Measurement of L-Malate Using Immobilized Enzyme Reactors: Comparison of Results Obtained with Four Different Enzymatic Systems.
TLDR
In the system with MDH alone, reducing sugars in the sample interfered with measurements and it was impossible to use this system for practical analysis of fruit samples, while the MDH-NADH oxidase system is recommended for practical analyses of samples. Expand
