Exposure to bisphenol A (BPA) in utero has been shown to induce alterations in the prostate of 30-d-old Wistar rats. Herein, we examine both the time course of BPA action on the rat prostate and the effects of BPA on the male hypothalamic-pituitary-gonadal axis. This was achieved by exposing rats to BPA in utero, followed by immunohistochemistry and(More)
In this work, we studied the influence of the type of coagulant enzyme and the curd scalding temperature on the proteolysis and residual coagulant and plasmin activities of a cooked cheese, Reggianito, in the interest of reducing ripening time. A two-factor experimental design was applied in two levels: type of coagulant enzyme, bovine chymosin or camel(More)
The objective of the present study was to investigate the influence of stretching temperature, fat content, and time of brining on proteolysis during ripening of Mozzarella cheeses. Seventeen cheese-making experiments (batches) were carried out on an industrial scale on successive days, following the standard procedure with some modifications. Fat content(More)
The application of high hydrostatic pressure (HHP) treatment has been proposed to reduce the ripening time of cheese via modifications in the enzymatic activities or the substrate reactivity. Investigations on the effect of HHP on cheese proteolysis have been undertaken with either encouraging results or little effect according to the treatment conditions(More)
