Effects of dietary phytophenols on the expression of microRNAs involved in mammalian cell homeostasis.
Besides synthesizing nutritive substances (proteins, fats and carbohydrates) for energy and growth, plants produce numerous non-energetic so-called secondary metabolites (mainly polyphenols) that allow them to protect themselves against infections and other types of hostile environments. Interesting...
Nutrient composition, antioxidant properties, and anti-proliferative activity of Lignosus rhinocerus Cooke sclerotium.
Lignosus rhinocerus (tiger milk mushroom) is an important medicinal mushroom used in Southeast Asia and China, and its sclerotium can be developed into functional food/nutraceuticals. The nutrient composition, antioxidant properties, and anti-proliferative activity of wild type and a cultivated stra...
Determination of the variations in levels of phenolic compounds in soybean (Glycine max Merr.) sprouts infected by anthracnose (Colletotrich...
Soybean sprouts (Kongnamool) are one of the most popular and nutritive traditional vegetables in East Asia. Anthracnose caused by Colletotrichum gloeosporioides is one of the most serious diseases of soybean sprouts. In order to obtain basic information for breeding and/or selecting soybean genotype...
Large intestinal fermentation capacity of fattening pigs on organic farms as measured in vitro using contrasting substrates.
In accordance with the EU regulations, organic farms require pigs to be fed diets high in fibre, which may impact on the pigs' large intestinal fermentation capacity. The ability of pigs to ferment non-starch polysaccharides (NSP) depends on characteristics of the dietary NSP source and microbes pre...
Ammonium as sole N source improves grain quality in wheat.
The skilful handling of N fertilizer, including N source type and its timing, is necessary to obtain maximum profitability in wheat crops in terms of production and quality. Studies on grain yield and quality with ammonium as sole N source have not yet been conducted. The aim of this study was to ev...
Influence of pre-slaughtering feed restriction on muscle characteristics of farmed sea bass (Dicentrarchus labrax L.) during cold storage.
This paper deals with the consequences of dietary restriction or complete starvation before slaughtering on the biochemical and textural characteristics of sea bass muscle. Results showed that only severe feed restriction influenced negatively total body and individual organ weights, and these anima...
Such as pigs eat: the rise and fall of the pannage pig in the UK.
Mast-feeding systems once formed the mainstay of pork production across Europe, but have now largely been forgotten. One of the earliest farming practices, it allowed people to fatten pigs on an otherwise wasted resource. Mast feeding was vital in the ancient world: Rome, Saxon England and the Norma...
Multivariate data analysis for finding the relevant fatty acids contributing to the melting fractions of cream.
The melting behaviour and fatty acid composition of cream from a total of 33 cows from four farms were analysed. Multivariate data analysis was used to identify the fatty acids that contributed most to the melting points and to differentiate between creams from different practical feeding regimes. I...
The effect of fish matrix on the enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay of antibiotics.
The matrix effect is considered to be a problem in the immunoassay of foodstuffs. However, information on the interference from aquatic products, as well as the mechanism involved, is very limited. In this study, using three flatfishes (Scophthalmus maximus, Paralichthys olivaceus and Cymoglossus ro...
The effects of different UV-B radiation intensities on morphological and biochemical characteristics in Ocimum basilicum L.
These results indicate that the application of short-exposure UV-B radiation beneficially influenced both growth parameters and biochemical constituents in young and mature basil plants. © 2012 Society of Chemical Industry. © 2012 Society of Chemical Industry....
