A new, simple procedure for the determination of phenolic components of wines, such as resveratrol and piceid isomers, has been elaborated and validated. A set of 70 red wines and 3 white wines from two wineries (Polgar Winery and Bock Winery, Villany, Hungary) are analyzed by reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography. The samples are injected(More)
Amadori peptides were enriched using boronate affinity tips and measured by matrix-assisted laser desorption/ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry (MALDI-TOF/MS). As demonstrated by electrochemical measurements, the tips show the highest binding efficiency for glucose at pH 8.2 employing ammonium chloride/ammonia buffer with ionic strength of 150 mM,(More)
Full-length cDNAs of placental protein 20 (PP20) were cloned by screening a human placental cDNA library, which encode a 243 amino acid protein, identical to human thiamin pyrophosphokinase (hTPK) as confirmed by protein sequence analysis. Genomic alignment showed that the PP20/hTPK gene contains 9 exons. It is abundantly expressed in placenta, as numerous(More)
There is increasing evidence that moderate consumption of red wine containing high amount of polyphenols and anthocyanins is associated with decreased incidence of cardiovascular morbidity and mortality. Therefore, we hypothesized that cardiac hypertrophy and fibrosis as well as Akt (protein kinase B, PKB) and protein kinase C (PKC) cascades can be(More)
A simple hydrolysis and extraction method was developed for the release of serotonin (5-hydroxytryptamine) from a coffee wax sample obtained from decaffeination of coffee beans. The recoverable amount of serotonin was determined by reversed-phase high-performance liquid chromatography with gradient elution and UV detection, using the standard addition(More)
This paper describes the preparation and investigation of new, highly loaded, monomeric, silica based, reversed phase C18 and C30 packings. The influence of pore structure and endcapping on the properties of C18 and C30 packings is described. Using hydrothermal procedures, silicas with predictable pore size (9.3-25.5 nm) and surface area have been prepared.(More)
Ninety-two wines from the southernmost wine-producing region in Hungary (Villány) were analyzed for their polyphenolic content by high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC). Our results show that wine variety or vintage year could not be distinguished based on polyphenol content, but winery origin could be. Resveratrol concentration is mainly dependent(More)
SPE plays a crucial role in bioanalytical research. In the present work a novel fullerene(C60)-derivatised silica material is compared with octadecyl(C18) - and triaconthyl(C30)-silicas regarding recoveries of peptides and sequence coverage of HSA and fibrinogen digests. C30- and C60(30 nm)-SPE materials were found to be the two most prominent SPE(More)
Nitrate ion is a frequent pollutant not only in soil and natural water resources but in vegetables and foods as well. In our study we focused on nettle due to its increased ability to accumulate nitrate ions. A new, simple method for the separation and determination of nitrate ion based on reversed-phase ion-pair chromatography has been elaborated. A new(More)
During the polymerization of actin, hydrolysis of bound ATP occurs in two consecutive steps: chemical cleavage of the high-energy nucleotide and slow release of the γ-phosphate. In this study the effect of phalloidin and jasplakinolide on the kinetics of P i release was monitored during the formation of actin filaments. An enzyme-linked assay based(More)
