Oligosaccharides of milk and colostrum in non-human mammals
The chemical structures and the variety of milk oligosaccharides in species other than humans, including placental mammals as well as monotremes (platypus and echidna) and marsupials, are reviewed. Expand
Determination of each neutral oligosaccharide in the milk of Japanese women during the course of lactation
Large differences were observed between the data and previously published data in Italian women, in terms of both the concentration and temporal changes of each oligosaccharide, which may be caused by different assay methodology, although racial differences cannot be ruled out. Expand
Sialyl Oligosaccharides of Human Colostrum: Changes in Concentration during the First Three Days of Lactation
The results are consistent with the view that during the first 3 d of lactation, the concentration of sialyl oligosaccharides in human colostrum change in accordance with the physiological demands of newborn infants. Expand
Effects of carbohydrate source on physicochemical properties of the exopolysaccharide produced by Lactobacillus fermentum TDS030603 in a chemically defined medium
Abstract A thermophilic lactic acid bacterium, Lactobacillus fermentum TDS030603, produced about 100 mg/L of EPS in purified form when grew in de Man–Rogosa–Sharpe (MRS) broth. The 1% (w/v) solutionExpand
Identification of a Novel Hypocholesterolemic Protein, Major Royal Jelly Protein 1, Derived from Royal Jelly
Royal jelly protein 1 (MRJP1), MRJP2, and MRJP3 are identified as novel bile acid-binding proteins from RJ, based on matrix-assisted laser desorption ionization time-of-flight mass spectrometry and Interestingly, MRJP1 exhibits greater hypocholesterolemic activity than the medicine β-sitosterol in rats.

Composition and oligosaccharides of a milk sample of the giant panda, Ailuropoda melanoleuca.
SDS-PAGE and urea-gel electrophoresis showed that alphas-casein is not a major component and the proportions of triacylglycerol, cholesterol, cholesterol esters and phospholipid were 90.5, 5.3, 0.96 and 3.1%, of the total lipid, respectively. Expand
Monoclonal Antibodies Neutralize Bacillus cereus Nhe Enterotoxin by Inhibiting Ordered Binding of Its Three Exoprotein Components
A distinct mechanism further supports that NheA is the key component during the Nhe mode of action and the C-terminal epitope recognized by antibody 1E11 points to an important functional region of NheB. Expand
Differences in oligosaccharide pattern of a sample of polar bear colostrum and mid-lactation milk.
Isoglobotriose, which had previously been found to be a dominant saccharide in mature milk from the Ezo brown bear, the Japanese black bear and the polar bear, was not found in the polarBear colostrum. Expand
Sialyl oligosaccharides in the milk of Japanese women: changes in concentration during the course of lactation
Abstract: The concentrations of the six major sialyl oligosaccharides found in the milk of 24 Japanese women were determined using reverse phase high performance liquid chromatography of theExpand
