Nutritional and Chemical Composition and Antiviral Activity of Cultivated Seaweed Sargassum naozhouense Tseng et Lu
C cultivated S. naozhouense has a potential for its use in functional foods and antiviral new drugs and the polysaccharides possessed strong antiviral activity against HSV-1 in vitro with EC50 of 8.92 μg/mL. Expand
Antibacterial activity and mechanism of cinnamon essential oil against Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus
Cinnamon essential oil exhibited effective antibacterial activity against foodborne spoilage and pathogenic bacteria in model systems using Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus, and S. aureus was more susceptible to cinnamon EO than E. coli. Expand
Functional characterization of salicylate hydroxylase from the fungal endophyte Epichloë festucae
The characterization of the E. festucae salicylate hydroxylase, designated Efe-shyA, shows that the fungal enzyme has the expected activity, and it is unlikely that expression of the endophyte salicylic acid level is a factor in the lack of a host defense response to the presence of thefungal endophytes.

Physicochemical properties and sensory evaluation of Mesona Blumes gum/rice starch mixed gels as fat-substitutes in Chinese Cantonese-style sausage
article i nfo Effect of Mesona Blumes gum (MBG)/rice starch mixed gels on the fat substitute of Chinese Cantonese-style sausage was investigated in this study, monitored with physicochemicalExpand
LC-MS-MS Analysis and the Antioxidant Activity of Flavonoids from Eggplant Skins Grown in Organic and Conventional Environments
Eggplant fruits are known to contain different classes of phenolic phytochemicals (flavonols, phenolic acids, and anthocyanins) that can exert beneficial effects on human health. This study developedExpand
The cranberry flavonoids PAC DP-9 and quercetin aglycone induce cytotoxicity and cell cycle arrest and increase cisplatin sensitivity in ovarian cancer cells
This study demonstrates promising in vitro cytotoxic and anti-proliferative properties of two newly characterized cranberry flavonoids, quercetin aglycone and PAC DP-9, against ovarian cancer cells. Expand
Berberine Nanosuspension Enhances Hypoglycemic Efficacy on Streptozotocin Induced Diabetic C57BL/6 Mice
The data indicate that a low dosage Ber-NS decreases blood glucose and improves lipid metabolism in type 2 diabetic C57BL/6 mice and suggest that the delivery of Ber as a nanosuspension is a promising approach for treating type 2 diabetes. Expand
Influence of Degree-of-Polymerization and Linkage on the Quantification of Proanthocyanidins using 4-Dimethylaminocinnamaldehyde (DMAC) Assay.
The results have shown that PAC dimers and trimers with interflavan linkage variations exhibited differential absorbance response, and the use of DMAC assay in PAC quantification, especially in comparing across specific oligomers and compositions, should not assume MACs are similar. Expand
Antiviral biflavonoids from Radix Wikstroemiae (Liaogewanggen)
Four biflavonoids, namely neochamaejasmin B, genkwanol B, GENKwanol C and stelleranol, which are stereo isomers of spirobiflav onoids, showed potent anti-RSV activity whereas neochamasejasmine B did not. Expand
Notoginsenoside ST-4 inhibits virus penetration of herpes simplex virus in vitro
Notoginsenoside ST-4 was investigated for its antiviral activity on herpes simplex type 1 (HSV-1) and type 2 ( HSV-2) in vitro and it was confirmed by fluorescence microscopy observation that notoginseno-ST-4 blocked the penetration of virus. Expand
