In order to elucidate the mechanism of the antihypertensive action of dried bonito (katsuobushi), we compared the effects of dried bonito extracts with those of captopril, an angiotensin I-converting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor, on aorta preparations isolated from rats. Dried bonito extracts (3 x 10(-4) to 3 x 10(-3) g/ml) more potently relaxed contractions(More)
This study investigated whether actin liberation from myofibrils occurs during the heating of various muscles, as well as squid mantle muscle at temperatures, such as 60°C, employed for vacuum cooking of meats. Actin liberation was demonstrated in scallop striated adductor muscle, but not in beef, pork, or chicken, using the detection method previously(More)
The thermal dependency and stability of enzymes producing reducing sugar (RS) were examined in bran, the exterior 13% part (outer endosperm), and the remaining inner endosperm of rice grains. RS-producing enzymes in the inner endosperm showed a higher optimum temperature than those in other parts of the rice grain. Diethylaminoethyl-Sephacel chromatography(More)
The high molecular weight protein connectin (also called titin) in Japanese common squid (Todarodes pacificus) mantle muscle was identified by western blotting analysis with 3B9, the mouse anti-chicken skeletal muscle connectin monoclonal antibody. Similarly to vertebrate samples, there exists connectin in invertebrate squid mantle muscle, and the amino(More)
Interaction of saltiness and acidity at the threshold level was studied employing 35 to 40 young female panelists. As a 1st step, the detection and recognition thresholds of salt, rice vinegar, and rice black vinegar have been measured for each panelist. To investigate the above interaction, the thresholds have been again measured for each panelist of salt,(More)
An improved method was investigated for sodium dodecyl sulfate polyacrylamide slab gel electrophoresis (SDS-PAGE) to facilitate the analysis of the giant myofibrillar proteins, connectin and nebulin, in fish meat by using jack mackerel (Trachurus japonicus) as the sample fish. It was established that separation of the alpha-connectin band from the(More)
The effect of acetic acid on the dissolution of proteins in rice was studied to elucidate the mechanism for the textural change induced by the acid by chemical and SDS-PAGE analyses of the rice proteins in the soaking solution. More proteins were extracted with 0.2 M acetic acid (pH 2.7) than with water (pH 6.8). The effect of acetic acid on the protein(More)
