Methylglyoxal (MGO) and glyoxal (GO) not only are endogenous metabolites but also exist in exogenous resources, such as foods, beverages, urban atmosphere, and cigarette smoke. They have been identified as reactive dicarbonyl precursors of advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which have been associated with diabetes-related long-term complications. In(More)
Beta-glucans are water-soluble cell-wall polysaccharides consisting of (1-->3,1-->4)-linked beta-D-glucopyranosyl monomers that comprise a considerable proportion of soluble fiber from certain grains including oats and barley. Consumption of foods containing beta-glucan or beta-glucan-enriched fractions prepared from these grains lower serum cholesterol(More)
A novel, sensitive, and high throughput competitive immunoassay for multiplex mycotoxins was established by immobilizing the artificial antigens (Ags) of mycotoxins on the surfaces of three kinds of silica photonic crystal microsphere (SPCM) suspension arrays. The SPCMs were encoded by their reflectance peak positions. Aflatoxin B1 (AFB1), fumonisin B1(More)
The protective effects of lotus germ oil on liver and kidney damage by carbon tetrachloride-induced chronic hepatotoxicity in mice, PC-12 cells, and DNA damage were investigated. The mice were treated orally with lotus germ oil or dl-α-tocopherol after administration CCl(4) for 49 consecutive days. The levels of key antioxidant enzymes, such as superoxide(More)
Polysaccharides, one of the most important constituents in Polygonum multiflorum Thunb, a famous Chinese medicinal herb, were isolated by DEAE-52, Sepharose 4B and Sephacryl S-300 column chromatography. Two polysaccharides (PMP-1 and PMP-2) were identified as homogeneous in molecular weight with HPLC. The molecular weights were 4.8 × 10(2) and 6.1 × 10(2)(More)
A novel multiplex chemiluminescent mycotoxin immunoassay suspension array system was developed by combining the silica photonic crystal microspheres (SPCMs) encoding technique and a chemiluminescent immunoassay (CLIA) method. The SPCMs were used as a carrier of the suspension array and encoded by their reflectance peak positions, which overcome fluorescence(More)

We reported a novel hemin-G-quadruplex aptamer chemiluminescence assay platform for ochratoxin A (OTA) using the single silica photonic crystal microsphere (SPCM). The oligonucleotide A sequence containing aptamer sequences of hemin and OTA is immobilized on the surface of SPCM. The other oligonucleotide B sequence containing partially complementary(More)
Advanced glycation end products (AGEs), which are formed in β-lactoglobulin (β-lg) glycation systems via the Maillard reaction, have been implicated in diabetes-related long-term complications. In the present study, we found that reaction conditions, including temperature, time, pH, reactant type and molar ratio of beta-lg to a sugar/MGO/GO, can(More)
Artemisia selengensis (AS) has been traditionally used as both food and medicine for thousands of years in China. In our studies, l-tryptophan was first isolated from the haulm of AS together with luteolin, rutin, and kaempferol-3-O-glucuronide. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods including HRMS, 1D and 2D NMR. Three flavonoid(More)
ABSTRACT Methylglyoxal (MGO) and glyoxal (GO), α-dicarbonyl compounds found in the Maillard reaction, progressively and irreversibly modify proteins. Beverages are an exogenous source of α-dicarbonyl compounds and may potentially increase MGO and GO levels in vivo. Using GC-FID method, we detected the MGO and GO contents of 86 beverages in Chinese(More)
