To develop the technique of microbial degradation of rutin into isoquercitrin (quercetin 3-glucoside), bacterial strains that could hydrolyze rutin were isolated from Chinese scholar tree Sophora japonica L. soil samples. Strain 44 containing rhanmosidase with the highest transformation ability was obtained after the soil samples were isolated, screened by TLC and re-screened by HPLC. Experiments show that its transformation rate was 50.36% within a 4 mL reaction system containing 50mg wet…

UV Mutagenesis Enhanced Biotransformation Efficiency of Rutin to Isoquercitrin by Bacillus litoralis

A genetic stable mutant strain UV-2-45 was obtained, which got a biotransformation rate of 3.9 times more than the original strain Bacillus litoralis C44, and its mole yield reached as high as 91% from 3 g/L of rutin in glycine-sodium hydroxide buffer (pH 9.0) at 45°C for 2 days.

Production of isoquercitrin from quercetin by biotransformation using Bascillus sp. CSQ10 isolated from Camellia sinensis cultivation soils

This study isolated a microorganism capable of converting quercetin to isoquercitrin, a substance with various biological functions, from tea cultivation soils and verified the biotransformation performance of Bacillus sp.

Isolation and characterization of a glycosyltransferase with specific catalytic activity towards flavonoids from Tripterygium wilfordii

The results showed that TwUGT2 has specific glycosyltransferase activity towards C-3 and 7 hydroxyl groups of flavonoids, thereby converting quercetin and pinocembrin into isoquercitrin and pinoscem brin 7-O-beta-D-glucoside, respectively.

Draft Genome Sequence of Bacillus litoralis C44, Isolated from Chinese Scholar Tree (Sophora japonica) Forest Soil

The genome sequence and annotation result of strain C44 can hydrolyze rutin to produce isoquercetin by the enzyme α-l-rhamnosidase and will serve as references to the physiology, genetics, and evolution of this species and further genetic engineering research in this species.

The highest concentrations of Q3G were attained by strains having a deletion in the pgi gene-coding phosphoglucose isomerase, which effectively blocked the entry of glucose-6P into the Embden–Meyerhof–Parnas pathway.

Prokaryotic and Eukaryotic Aryl Sulfotransferases: Sulfation of Quercetin and Its Derivatives

Two types of sulfotransferases were used for the sulfation of quercetin, its glycosylated derivatives (isoquercitrin and rutin), and dihydroquercet in ((+)‐taxifolin), and a full structural analysis of all products is presented.

Antioxidative effect of dietary flavonoid isoquercitrin on human ovarian granulosa cells HGL5 in vitro.

An existence of the antioxidative pathway that involves inhibition of intracellular ROS generation by isoquercitrin in human ovarian granulosa cells is indicated.

Characterization, Large-Scale HSCCC Separation and Neuroprotective Effects of Polyphenols from Moringa oleifera Leaves

Moringa oleifera leaves have been widely used for the treatment of inflammation, diabetes, high blood pressure, and other diseases, due to being rich in polyphenols. The main objective of this work



Degradation of rutin by Thermoactinomyces vulgaris and other thermophilic compost isolates.

Results showed that the initial attack on rutin by the extracellular enzymes of T. vulgaris PU18-2 apparently was not through the Glycosidase-mediated hydrolysis of glycosidic bond.

Extraction of rutin from buckwheat (Fagopyrum esculentumMoench) seeds and determination by capillary electrophoresis.

The results indicate that buckwheat could be an important nutritional source of flavonoids, especially in countries with a low mean daily flavonoid intake.

A comparison of acidic and enzymatic hydrolysis of rutin

The aglycon of rutin was deglycosolated easily under mild acidic hydrolysis conditions at appropriate temperatures, but its secondary glucoside was difficult to be obtained.

Degradation of rutin by Aspergillus flavus. Studies with oxygen 18 on the action of a dioxygenase on quercetin.

The enzyme quercetinase, an oxygenase produced by Aspergillus flavus, yield carbon monoxide and a depside, 2-protocatechuoyl-phloroglucinolcarboxylic acid, which is likely to be a dioxygenase.

A new flavonol glucoside from aerial parts of manaplant alhagi (Alhagi pseudoalhagi)

A new flavonoid glucoside was isolated from the aerial parts of Alhagi pseudoalhaki(M.B.) Desv..On the basis of spectral data and chemical reaction,it was elucidated to be

Enzymatic Synthesis of the Flavone Glucosides, Prunin and Isoquercetin, and the Aglycones, Naringenin and Quercetin, with Selective α-L-Rhamnosidase and β-D-Glucosidase Activities of Naringinase

The inactivation of β-D-glucosidase activity expressed by naringinase keeping α-L-rhamnosidase with a high retention activity was a crucial achievement towards an easy and cheap production method of very expensive flavonoids, like prunin and isoquercetin starting from naring in and rutin, respectively.

Antidiabetic activity of isoquercetin in diabetic KK -Ay mice

It is suggested that isoquercetin had a regulative role in blood glucose level and lipids, and improved the function of pancreatic islets, and may be useful in the treatment of type 2 diabetes mellitus.

Comparative study on in vitro anti-free radical activities of quercetin, isoquercetin, and rutin

Three flavoniods have potent anti-free radical effects in a dose- and glycosyl structure-dependent manner and Rutin demonstrated the greatest potency in hydroxyl free radical and superoxide anion (O2-) models and quercet in demonstrated the lowest while the reversed results was observed in ·OH-caused hepatocellular lipid peroxidation and ·OH/RBC membrane models.
