The effects of oral commensal streptococci (Streptococcus sanguinis, Streptococcus gordonii, Streptococcus mitis, and Streptococcus salivarius) on biofilm formation by cariogenic mutans streptococci (Streptococcus mutans and Streptococcus sobrinus) were investigated. Cell suspensions were cultured on 96-well microtiter plates coated with or without salivary(More)

Animal by-products can be recycled and used as sources of essential nutrients. Water-soluble heme iron (WSHI), a functional food additive for supplementing iron, is produced by processing animal blood. In this study, we investigated the effects of dietary supplementation of 3% WSHI and exercise training for 4 weeks on the accumulation of abdominal fat and(More)
Satsuma mandarin fruit (Citrus unshiu Mark.) photosynthesizes as comparable to leaf at about 100 days after full bloom (DAFB). In this study, translocation and accumulation of fruit-fixed photosynthate were investigated by using 14CO2. When fruit at 108 DAFB was exposed to 14CO2 for 48 h under 135 photosynthetic photon flux density (PPFD), 14C-sucrose,(More)
