FT-IR study of plant cell wall model compounds: pectic polysaccharides and hemicelluloses
Pectic polysaccharides and hemicelluloses extracted from plants were studied in highly hydrated films on BaF2 discs. Distinctive absorption band maxima in the mid-infrared region at 1200‐800 cm 21Expand

Normal growth of Arabidopsis requires cytosolic invertase but not sucrose synthase
The entry of carbon from sucrose into cellular metabolism in plants can potentially be catalyzed by either sucrose synthase (SUS) or invertase (INV). These 2 routes have different implications forExpand

A rapid-screening approach to detect and quantify microplastics based on fluorescent tagging with Nile Red
A new approach is presented for analysis of microplastics in environmental samples, based on selective fluorescent staining using Nile Red (NR), followed by density-based extraction and filtration.Expand

Mechanical properties with respect to water content of gelatin films in glassy state
Abstract Changes on the structural and molecular level of gelatin films induced by hydration below 25±3% water content (glass–rubbery transition at ambient temperature) were identified with DSC andExpand

The mechanical properties and molecular dynamics of plant cell wall polysaccharides studied by Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy.
Polarized one- and two-dimensional infrared spectra were obtained from the epidermis of onion (Allium cepa) under hydrated and mechanically stressed conditions. By Fourier-transform infraredExpand

Characterisation of xylan-type polysaccharides and associated cell wall components by FT-IR and FT-Raman spectroscopies
Abstract Xylan models with (14), (13), (12) α or β glycosidic links were studied by FT-IR and FT-Raman spectroscopy. The results indicate the unique spectral properties of samples with the (13)Expand

Anthocyanins Double the Shelf Life of Tomatoes by Delaying Overripening and Reducing Susceptibility to Gray Mold
Summary Shelf life is an important quality trait for many fruit, including tomatoes. We report that enrichment of anthocyanin, a natural pigment, in tomatoes can significantly extend shelf life.Expand

Boiling peanut Ara h 1 results in the formation of aggregates with reduced allergenicity.
SCOPE Roasting rather than boiling and Maillard modifications may modulate peanut allergenicity. We investigated how these factors affect the allergenic properties of a major peanut allergen, Ara hExpand

Changes in protein secondary structure during gluten deformation studied by dynamic fourier transform infrared spectroscopy.
Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectroscopy was used to monitor changes in the secondary structure of wheat prolamins, the main components of gluten, during mechanical deformation in a series ofExpand

Development of pectin films with pomegranate juice and citric acid.
The influence of pomegranate juice (PJ, replacing water as solvent) and citric acid (CA) on properties of pectin films was studied. PJ provided the films with a bright red color, and acted as aExpand
