We aimed to perform a chemical analysis of both Alibernet red wine and an alcohol-free Alibernet red wine extract (AWE) and to investigate the effects of AWE on nitric oxide and reactive oxygen species production as well as blood pressure development in normotensive Wistar Kyoto (WKY) and spontaneously hypertensive rats (SHRs). Total antioxidant capacity(More)
Silymarin is an antihepatotoxic substance isolated from fruits of Silybum marianum. Possibly due to their antioxidant and membrane stabilizing properties, the compounds have been shown to protect different organs and cells against a number of insults. The content and composition of main silymarin components (silybin, isosilybin, silydianin and silychristin)(More)
Potatoes, members of the Solanaceae plant family, contain calystegines, water-soluble nortropane alkaloids, which are biologically active as glycosidase inhibitors. The content of calystegines A(3) and B(2) in different varieties of potato and in various parts of the tubers (whole potato, peel, flesh, and sprouts) were analysed by new capillary zone(More)
Direct analysis in real time (DART) is a novel technique with great potential for rapid screening analysis. The DART ionization method coupled with high-resolution time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOF-MS) has been used for characterization of mustard seeds and table mustard. The possibility to use DART to analyse glucosinolates was confirmed on(More)
This article reports on patient that has been presented with sudden onset of constipation, abdominal pain and normocytic anemia. Gastroscopy and colonoscopy ruled out an organic diseases. In peripheral blood and bone marrow aspirates mears, coarse basophilic stippling of erythrocyte (and erythroblasts) point out a possibility of heavy metal poisoning. The(More)
The kinetic properties of Cu(ii) complexes of H4dota and its analogues with one (H5do3ap), two in the 1,7-position (trans-H6do2a2p), three (H7doa3p) and four (H8dotp) phosphonic acid pendant arms were investigated. The formation of a Cu(ii) complex with H4dota, trans-H6do2a2p and H8dotp at a slightly acidic pH is faster for the phosphonic acid derivatives(More)
L-Carnitine is a substance natural for human body which transfers fatty acids to the place of burning-mitochondria and aids the transformation of fats into energy and this way supports overweight reduction and immediate physical performance, increases resistance from physical load and protect heart from overload. In this study are described newly developed(More)
To ensure that egg-containing products, such as dried eggs and egg pasta, conform to the technological and legislative requirements for egg content, methods are needed to determine the amount of cholesterol in such products. The conventional approach, direct saponification and hexane extraction followed by cholesterol determination by gas chromatography(More)
DART (Direct Analysis in Real Time) coupled with Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry (TOF/MS) has been used for analyses of ice-teas. The article focuses on quality and authenticity of ice-teas as one of the most important tea-based products on the market. Twenty-one samples of ice-teas (black and green) were analysed. Selected compounds of ice-teas were(More)
DART (direct analysis in real time), a novel technique with wide potential for rapid screening analysis, coupled with high-resolution time-of-flight mass spectrometry (TOF-MS) has been used for quantitative analysis of 5-hydroxymethylfurfural (5-HMF), a typical temperature marker of food. The DART/TOF-MS method was optimised and validated. Quantification of(More)
