The avidin-biotin-peroxidase complex technique was used with 13 lectins to study the glycoconjugates of normal human renal tissue. The evaluated lectins included Triticum vulgaris (WGA), Concanavalin ensiformis (ConA), Phaseolus vulgaris leukoagglutinin and erythroagglutinin (PHA-L and PHA-E), Lens culinaris (LCA), Pisum sativum (PSA), Dolichos biflorus(More)
Krebs cycle substrates (KCS) can stabilise the colour of packaged meat by oxygen reduction. This study tested whether this reduction releases reactive oxygen species that may lead to lipid oxidation in minced meat under two different storage conditions. KCS combinations of succinate and glutamate increased peroxide forming potential (PFP, 1.18-1.32 mmol(More)

Oxygen consumption rate (OCR) of muscle fibers from bovine semimembranosus muscle of 41 animals was investigated 3 to 4 h and 3 wk postmortem. Significant relations (P < 0.05) were found between OCR measurements and Warner-Bratzler shear force measurement. Muscles with high mitochondrial OCR after 3 to 4 h and low nonmitochondrial oxygen consumption gave(More)
Animal and muscle characteristics were recorded for 41 cattle. The oxygen consumption rate (OCR) of M. semimembranosus was measured between 3.0-6.4h post mortem (PM3-6) and after 3 weeks in a vacuum pack at 4°C. Colour change measurements were performed following the 3 weeks using reflectance spectra (400-1,100 nm) and the colour coordinates L, a and b,(More)
UNLABELLED The oxygen consumption rate (OCR) of 2 types of permeabilized tissues and their corresponding isolated mitochondria from porcine M. masseter and liver, resulting in 4 systems, was studied at different pH values (5.0 to 7.1) using fresh samples and samples frozen directly in liquid nitrogen (N₂) or air-frozen at -20°C. A protocol with the additive(More)
The surface layers of steaks from bovine M. semimembranosus were prepared to have deoxy- (DMb), oxy- (OMb) and metmyoglobin (MMb) states using either chemicals (CHEM) or oxygen partial pressure packaging (OPP). Ninety-six different meat surface areas were measured in reflectance mode (400-1100 nm) for each preparation method. Reflectance spectra were(More)
