Cinnamon bark proanthocyanidins as reactive carbonyl scavengers to prevent the formation of advanced glycation endproducts.
Cinnamon bark has been reported to be effective in the alleviation of diabetes through its antioxidant and insulin-potentiating activities. In this study, the inhibitory effect of cinnamon bark onExpand
Inhibitory effect of mung bean extract and its constituents vitexin and isovitexin on the formation of advanced glycation endproducts
Abstract The anti-glycation activity of four kinds of beans including mung bean, black bean, soybean and cowpea were evaluated. Aqueous alcohol extract of mung bean exhibited the strongest inhibitoryExpand
Tyrosinase inhibitory constituents from the roots of Morus nigra: a structure-activity relationship study.
The phytochemical profiles of Morus nigra roots and twigs were compared by HPLC with those of the old and young twigs of Morus alba which are known to contain oxyresveratrol and mulberroside A asExpand
Protective effects of pinostilbene, a resveratrol methylated derivative, against 6-hydroxydopamine-induced neurotoxicity in SH-SY5Y cells.
Resveratrol (3,4',5-trans-trihydroxystilbene) is a phytoalexin with emerging lines of evidence supporting its beneficial effects on cardiovascular systems and inhibition of carcinogenesis. It hasExpand
Isolation of tyrosinase inhibitors from Artocarpus heterophyllus and use of its extract as antibrowning agent.
A new furanoflavone, 7-(2,4-dihydroxyphenyl)-4-hydroxy-2-(2-hydroxy propan-2-yl)-2, 3-dihydrofuro(3, 2-g)chromen-5-one (artocarpfuranol, 1), together with 14 known compounds, dihydromorin (2),Expand
Inhibition of acrylamide formation by vitamins in model reactions and fried potato strips
Abstract The capacities of 15 vitamins in reducing the formation of acrylamide were examined. Inhibitory activities of the water-soluble vitamins were tested in both chemical models containingExpand
Activities of hydrocolloids as inhibitors of acrylamide formation in model systems and fried potato strips
Abstract Effects of eight hydrocolloids on acrylamide (AA) formation were compared. At 2% (w/w), pectin, alginic acid (>50% reduction) and xanthan gum (∼20%) significantly (P
Sesquiterpenoids from Homalomena occulta affect osteoblast proliferation, differentiation and mineralization in vitro.
Chemical investigation of rhizomes of Homalomena occulta (Lours) resulted in isolation and identification of two sesquiterpenoids (6,7), and one daucane ester 8, together with five knownExpand
Inhibition of heterocyclic amine formation by water-soluble vitamins in Maillard reaction model systems and beef patties
Abstract The inhibitory activities of 11 water-soluble vitamins against heterocyclic amine formation were examined in a PhIP and a MeIQx producing chemical model. Six investigated vitaminsExpand
Natural polyphenols as direct trapping agents of lipid peroxidation-derived acrolein and 4-hydroxy-trans-2-nonenal.
Acrolein (ACR) and 4-hydroxy-trans-2-nonenal (HNE) are two cytotoxic lipid-derived alpha,beta-unsaturated aldehydes which have been implicated as causative agents in the development of carbonylExpand
