The optically active R and S isomers of cationic cardiolipin analogues (CCA) were synthesized and evaluated as a liposome based transfection reagent. Both isomers form stable liposomes with mean diameters of about 120 nm without any additional lipid ingredients. No significant change in particle size distribution profile was observed over one-month storage(More)
In order to elucidate the gelation mechanism of surimi, the temperature dependence of water proton spin-spin relaxation time ((1)H T(2)) has been described by a theoretical approach, in which the exposed protein surface is taken into account. Water (1)H T(2) measured for horse mackerel surimi in the presence of 2.5% NaCl was analyzed on the basis of the(More)
Horse mackerel and tilapia surimi were subjected to six different heat and pressure treatments in order to compare gelation characteristics of easy- and difficult-setting gels, that is, temperature dependence, by observing rheological properties and microscopic molecular mobility. The stress-relaxation and proton spin-spin relaxation time (1H T 2) of water(More)
The nitrosation of gramine, a tertiary amine alkaloid present in barley malt, was carried out by reaction with sodium nitrite in buffered acetic acid (pH 3.4) for 1 hr at room temperature. Following the previous isolation and identification of the major nitrosation products (Ahmad et al. Fd Chem. Toxic. 1985, 23, 841), two minor products were isolated by(More)
The nitrosation of gramine, a tertiary amine alkaloid present in barley malt, was carried out by reaction with sodium nitrite in buffered acetic acid (pH 3.4) for 1 hr at room temperature. Two major non-volatile products of the nitrosation reaction were isolated by preparative HPLC and characterized as indole-3-carboxylic acid and(More)
