Radical scavenging activity of a purple pigment, hordeumin, from uncooked barley bran-fermented broth.

Abstract

A novel purple pigment called hordeumin, a type of anthocyanin-tannin pigment, was produced from barley bran-fermented broth. The radical scavenging activity of hordeumin was analyzed by using an electron-spin resonance (ESR) spectrometer. The hordeumin scavenged superoxide radical in a concentration-dependent manner. Superoxide dismutase-like activity… (More)
