Apple procyanidins were separated by high-speed counter-current chromatography using a type-J multilayer coil planet centrifuge. Several two-phase solvent systems with a wide range of hydrophobicities from a non-polar hexane system to polar n-butanol systems were evaluated their performance in terms of the partition coefficient and the retention of the(More)
The molecular masses of polyphenols in plants and food vary greatly up to the order of 10 kDa. Polymerized polyphenols are not only natural antioxidants but also strong inhibitors of numerous physiological enzymatic activities. Several useful methods for the determination and separation of these high-molecular-mass polyphenols have recently been developed.(More)

Column packings with chemically bonded polyethylene glycol (PEG) and polypropylene glycol (PPG) were prepared and the separation of human peripheral blood cells by an aqueous polymeric two phase system could be performed in a partition chromatography. In this chromatographic system, the interaction of blood cells with bonded PEG, PPG stationary phases is(More)
A set of nucleic acid constituents were separated with ultra polar two-phase solvent systems by a spiral multilayer coil mounted on the rotary frame of a type-J coil planet centrifuge. These two-phase systems were composed of 1-butanol/ethanol/50% saturated aqueous ammonium sulfate at various volume ratios. Nucleobases including adenine, cytosine, uracil,(More)
Proteins present in chicken egg white are separated by counter-current chromatography (CCC) in one step using a cross-axis coil planet centrifuge (X-axis CPC). The separation was performed with an aqueous polymer two-phase system composed of 16% (w/w) poly(ethylene glycol) 1000 and 12.5% (w/w) dibasic potassium phosphate by eluting the lower phase at a(More)
High-speed counter-current chromatography (HSCCC) using the type-J coil planet centrifuge was applied to compositional analysis of tea catechins and separation of other food-related polyphenols. The HSCCC separation of nine different standard compounds and those from extracts of commercial tea leaves was performed with a two-phase solvent system composed of(More)
WaterLOGSY and STD experiments are widely used as NMR-based screening techniques in drug research. In the present study, an improved STD pulse sequence was developed, and its efficiency and applicability of observing the ligand signals were evaluated compared with the WaterLOGSY experiment. A combination of presaturation, a WET sequence and subsequent(More)
High-speed counter-current chromatography (HSCCC) using the three-phase solvent system n-hexane-methyl acetate-acetonitrile-water at a volume ratio of 4:4:3:4 was applied to the comprehensive separation of secondary metabolites in several natural product extracts. A wide variety of secondary metabolites in each natural product was effectively extracted with(More)
The kinetics of Z-(cis)/E-(trans) isomerization of enalapril was investigated by reversed phase high-performance liquid chromatography (RP-HPLC) using a monolith ODS column under a series of different temperature and pH conditions. At a neutral pH 7, the rate (k(obs)) of Z-(cis)/E-(trans) isomerization of enalapril at 4 degrees C (9.4 x 10(-3)min(-1)) is(More)
The present study was undertaken to investigate endothelial function and epoxyeicosatrienoic acids (EETs), which is a cytochrome P-450 monooxygenase (CYP) metabolite and one of the candidates as an endothelium-derived hyperpolarizing factor (EDHF) in the renal artery isolated from short-term hypercholesterolemic rabbits, and also to characterize the effects(More)
