HPLC method for the quantification of procyanidins in cocoa and chocolate samples and correlation to total antioxidant capacity.
Monomeric and oligomeric procyanidins present in cocoa liquors and chocolates were separated and quantified in four different laboratories using a normal-phase high-performance liquid chromatographyExpand
Potential physiological importance of pyrroloquinoline quinone.
Pyrroloquinoline quinone (PQQ) is a novel biofactor for which a proposition can be made for physiological importance. PQQ was first recognized as an enzyme cofactor in bacteria. It has recently beenExpand
Pyrroloquinoline Quinone Stimulates Mitochondrial Biogenesis through cAMP Response Element-binding Protein Phosphorylation and Increased PGC-1α Expression*
Bioactive compounds reported to stimulate mitochondrial biogenesis are linked to many health benefits such increased longevity, improved energy utilization, and protection from reactive oxygenExpand
Enzymatic and nonenzymatic cross‐linking of collagen and elastin
Knowledge regarding the steps and mechanisms related to the intra‐ and interchain cross‐linking of collagen and elastin has evolved steadily during the past 30 years. Recently, effort has beenExpand
Identification of procyanidins in cocoa (Theobroma cacao) and chocolate using high-performance liquid chromatography/mass spectrometry.
Monomeric and oligomeric procyanidins present in cocoa and chocolate were separated and identified using a modified normal-phase high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) method coupled withExpand
Developmental changes in composition of cats milk: trace elements, minerals, protein, carbohydrate and fat.
The concentrations of iron, copper, zinc, manganese, calcium, magnesium, protein, carbohydrate and fat were analyzed in cats' milk during the course of lactation. Cats' milk is different from mostExpand
Copper, lysyl oxidase, and extracellular matrix protein cross-linking.
Protein-lysine 6-oxidase (lysyl oxidase) is a cuproenzyme that is essential for stabilization of extracellular matrixes, specifically the enzymatic cross-linking of collagen and elastin. A hypothesisExpand
Hematopoietic studies in vitamin A deficiency.
Recent studies of experimental vitamin A deficiency in man led the authors to conclude that anemia may result from lack of vitamin A. A review of numerous nutrition surveys in underdevelopedExpand
Neurulation and neurite extension require the zinc transporter ZIP12 (slc39a12)
Zn2+ is required for many aspects of neuronal structure and function. However, the regulation of Zn2+ in the nervous system remains poorly understood. Systematic analysis of tissue-profilingExpand
the development and extension of nutritional services in Egypt, Yugoslavia and India. The work which has been foreshadowed for 1952 for FAD and WHO need not be set out in detail in this place. TheExpand
