Reduction by Phytate-reduced Soybean β-Conglycinin of Plasma Triglyceride Level of Young and Adult Rats
This study examined the effects of soybean β-conglycinin, from which phytate was mostly removed, on the plasma lipids in young and adult rats. Male Wistar young (6 week-old) and adult (21 week-old)Expand

Safety assessment of transgenic potatoes with soybean glycinin by feeding studies in rats.
Feeding studies of transgenic potatoes with native and designed soybean glycinins in rats were done for four weeks. The designed glycinin has four additional methioninyl residues in the middle of theExpand

Decreases in serum triacylglycerol and visceral fat mediated by dietary soybean beta-conglycinin.
Soy protein isolate (SPI) is known to reduce the risk of heart disease by lowering serum cholesterol and triacylglycerol (TG) levels. Soybean beta-conglycinin, which is a component of SPI, might beExpand

Degradation of phospholipid molecular species during experimental cerebral ischemia in rats.
Previous investigators have shown that free fatty acids that accumulate during ischemia are an indicator of evolution in ischemic brain damage. Our study describes the temporal relations between freeExpand

Quality and safety evaluation of genetically engineered rice with soybean glycinin: analyses of the grain composition and digestibility of glycinin in transgenic rice.
The composition of nutritionally and physiologically important molecules in transgenic rice with the soybean glycinin gene was determined and compared with that of a non-transgenic control. ExceptExpand

Effects of Soybean β-Conglycinin on Hepatic Lipid Metabolism and Fecal Lipid Excretion in Normal Adult Rats
β-Conglycinin decreased blood triacylglycerol (TAG) levels in male Wistar adult rats. Liver mitochondrial carnitine palmitoyltransferase activity in the β-conglycinin-fed group significantlyExpand

Safety assessment of genetically engineered food: detection and monitoring of glyphosate-tolerant soybeans.
A detection technique for the genetically engineered food, glyphosate-tolerant soybean (GTS), was designed. Commercial soybeans imported from North America were cultured in pots and genomic DNA wasExpand

Changes of linoleic, arachidonic and eicosapentaenoic acids in rat platelet, aorta and plasma lipids after changing from a sardine oil diet to a corn oil diet.
When rats were fed on a diet containing sardine oil (SO) for 10 days, 20:5 (eicosapentaenoic acid) was incorporated into the platelet, aorta and plasma lipids. The 20:5/20:4 (arachidonic acid) ratiosExpand

The 1,10‐phenanthroline micelles‐copper(I) complex catalyzes protein degradation
The 1,10‐phenanthroline micelles‐copper(I) coordinated complex, not the mono‐dispersed bis 1,10‐phenanthroline‐copper(I) one, rapidly degraded proteins in the presence of β‐mercaptoethanol in theExpand
