Carotenoid composition of berries and leaves from six Romanian sea buckthorn (Hippophae rhamnoides L.) varieties.
Principal component analysis identified the suitable carotenoid biomarkers characteristic for the Carpathians' sea buckthorn from Romania with contribution to their taxonomic classification and authenticity recognition. Expand
UHPLC/PDA-ESI/MS analysis of the main berry and leaf flavonol glycosides from different Carpathian Hippophaë rhamnoides L. varieties.
The flavonol derivatives can be considered as biomarkers to discriminate among varieties and to recognise specifically the berry versus leaf composition in Romanian sea buckthorn varieties. Expand
Rapid quantitative analysis of ethanol and prediction of methanol content in traditional fruit brandies from Romania, using FTIR spectroscopy and chemometrics.
Fourier Transform Infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy in combination with chemometrics were applied for the quality control of 26 fruit brandies made by traditional technology in Romania. Firstly, for theExpand
Untargeted Metabolomics for Sea Buckthorn ( Hippophae rhamnoides ssp. carpatica) Berries and Leaves: Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy as a Rapid Approach for Evaluation and Discrimination
Untargeted metabolomics coupled with chemometric analysis was applied to evaluate and discriminate six Romanian sea buckthorn ( Hippophae rhamnoides L.) berries and leaves. Total carotenoids andExpand
Berberine: Botanical Occurrence, Traditional Uses, Extraction Methods, and Relevance in Cardiovascular, Metabolic, Hepatic, and Renal Disorders
This review describes various methods mentioned in the literature so far with reference to the most important factors influencing berberine extraction, including thin layer chromatography, high performance liquid Chromatography, and mass spectrometry. Expand
Comparative fingerprint and extraction yield of medicinal herb phenolics with hepatoprotective potential, as determined by UV-Vis and FT-MIR spectroscopy.
The present study was aimed to compare the polyphenolic composition of six medicinal herbs, from wild flora of Romania. The plants investigated, Cynara scolimus (artichoke), Taraxacum officinalisExpand
Sodiation as a tool for enhancing the diagnostic value of MALDI-TOF/TOF-MS spectra of complex astaxanthin ester mixtures from Haematococcus pluvialis.
Investigation of ionization and fragmentation of astaxanthin mono- and diester palmitate standards in MALDI-TOF/TOF-MS showed that sodium adduct parent masses gave much simpler MS(2) spectra than radical / protonated parents, which yielded diagnostic polyene-specific eliminations and fatty acid neutral losses.

Carotenoid and fatty acid profiles of bilberries and cultivated blueberries from Romania
The aim of this study was the identification and quantification of carotenoids and fatty acids in two bilberry genotypes (Wild 1 and 2) and three cultivars (BlueCrop, Elliot, and Duke) and in Vaccinium corymbosum species. Expand
Anthocyanin determination in blueberry extracts from various cultivars and their antiproliferative and apoptotic properties in B16-F10 metastatic murine melanoma cells.
The results indicate that the anthocyanins from blueberry cultivar could be used as a chemopreventive or adjuvant treatment for metastasis control. Expand
Effects of Curcumin Nanoparticles in Isoproterenol-Induced Myocardial Infarction
CCNP was more efficient than CC in limiting the increase in inflammatory cytokine levels after MI and better prevented myocardial necrosis and reduced interstitial edema and neutrophil infiltration than CC, on histopathological examination. Expand
