Se-polysaccharide from Catathelasma ventricosum (SPC-2) was purified by DEAE-52 and Sephadex G-100 column chromatography. The average size of SPC-2 was 1.6×10(5) Da, and it was mainly composed of glucose (87.4%) with the conformation of β-pyran ring. The branched structure of SPC-2 was proved intuitively by atomic force microscope (AFM). The antidiabetic(More)
Lysozyme from hen egg white is a well-known antimicrobial protein with high ratio of hydrophobic and positively charged amino acid residues. In order to explore functional bioactivities of enzymatic hydrolysates of lysozyme, the protein was subjected to a simulated gastrointestinal digestion and the resulting hydrolysate (LPH2) showed a strong competitive(More)
Elderly females, particularly those carrying the apolipoprotein E (ApoE)-ε4 allele, have a higher risk of developing Alzheimer's disease (AD). However, the underlying mechanism for this increased susceptibility remains unclear. In this study, we investigated the effects of the ApoE genotype and gender on the proteome of synaptosomes. We isolated(More)
The formation of soluble and insoluble complexes between ovalbumin (OVA) and gum arabic (GA) polysaccharide was investigated under specific conditions (pH 1.0-7.0; temperature 4-55 °C; NaCl concentration 0-60mM; total biopolymer concentration 0.05-3.0 wt%) by turbidimetric analysis. For the 2:1 OVA:GA ratio and in the absence of NaCl, soluble and insoluble(More)
Monodispersed and functional immobilized metal affinity magnetic chondroitin sodium sulfate nanoparticles (short as IMAN @ Fe (III)) were prepared and employed in extracting of Phosvitin Phosphopeptides (short as PPPs) from egg yolk. It was found that the diameter of the magnetic CS nanoparticles was about 20 nm, and they could easily be aggregated by a(More)
It is the first time to extract polysaccharides (CVPs) from Catathelasma ventricosum. The antihyperglycemic and antioxidant activity of CVPs in streptozotocin-induced diabetic mice were examined. Compared with untreated diabetic mice, the administration of CVPs for 30 days caused a significant decrease in the concentrations of blood glucose, total(More)
The content of carotenoids, chlorophylls, phenolics, and tocols in pistachios ( Pistacia vera L.) has not been methodically quantified. The objective of this study was to first optimize extraction protocols for lipophilic nutrients and then quantify the content of two phenolic acids, nine flavonoids, four carotenoids, two chlorophylls, and three tocols in(More)
Orthogonal polyphase code sets with low aperiodic autocorrelation sidelobe peak (ASP) values and aperiodic cross-correlation peak (CP) values, can be used in multiple input multiple output (MIMO) radar systems to reduce the interference between different signals. Tabu Search (TS) algorithm is proposed to optimize such orthogonal polyphase code sets with(More)
