  1. 1. Mass Spectrometry of Biologically Active Small Molecules : Focusing on polyphenols, alkaloids and amino acids

    Author : Zdeněk Spáčil; Leopold L. Ilag; Frantisek Turecek; Stockholms universitet; []
    Keywords : NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURVETENSKAP; NATURAL SCIENCES; LC-MS; LDI; Mass spectrometry; HPLC; UHPLC; polyphenols; phenolic acids; BMAA; Separation methods; Separationsmetoder; Analytical chemistry; Analytisk kemi; Analytical Chemistry; analytisk kemi;

    Abstract : The foci of this dissertation are on advanced liquid chromatography (LC) separation and mass spectrometry (MS) techniques for the analysis of small bioactive molecules. In addition to discussing general aspects of such techniques the results from analyses of polyphenols (PPs), alkaloids and amino acids published in five appended studies are presented and discussed.

  2. 2. Probiotics and berry-associated polyphenols: catabolism and antioxidative effects

    Author : Maja Jakesevic; Institutionen för livsmedelsteknik; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; Bilberry; Rosehips; Chokeberry; Probiotics; Lactic acid bacteria; Polyphenols; Ischemia-reperfusion; Oxidative stress;

    Abstract : Oxidative stress can cause damage to DNA, proteins and lipids and is associated with inflammation and various human diseases as cancer, atherosclerosis, and autoimmune diseases. Polyphenol-rich diet, such as fruits and berries, may act as antioxidants and prevent oxidative stress and, thereby, associated diseases. READ MORE

  3. 3. In Vitro Availability of Iron in High-Tannin Sorghum. Effect of Enzymatic Oxidation of Phenolic Compounds

    Author : Erika Matuschek; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : bioavailability; catechol groups; polyphenols; polyphenol oxidase; iron; in vitro availability; tyrosinase; fruit extracts; sorghum; oxidation; tannins; galloyl groups;

    Abstract : Iron deficiency anemia is the most common nutritional disorder in the world. In low income countries, it is to a large extent caused by low bioavailability of iron in the vegetable diet. Vegetable diets contain large amounts of compounds that inhibit iron absorption, e.g. READ MORE

  4. 4. Effects of ellagic acid in human neuroblastoma cells

    Author : Christina Fjæraa Alfredsson; Eewa Nånberg; Karin Persson; Karlstads universitet; []
    Keywords : polyphenols; ellagic acid; neuroblastoma; SH-SY5Y cells; differentiation; proliferation; apoptosis; cell adhesion; Biomedical Sciences; Biomedicinsk vetenskap;

    Abstract : A diet rich in polyphenols has been proposed to have beneficial health effects and to reduce risk of disease. Ellagic acid, a polyphenol common in red berries and pomegranates, has potential anti-tumorigenic effects that make it interesting to further study in different cancer cell systems. READ MORE

  5. 5. Processing of berries – Effects on functionality, stability and bioactivity of anthocyanins

    Author : Gabriel Barbosa; Chalmers University of Technology; []
    Keywords : NATURVETENSKAP; TEKNIK OCH TEKNOLOGIER; NATURAL SCIENCES; ENGINEERING AND TECHNOLOGY; berries; powder; hot air and microwave drying; osmotic dehydration; press cake; edible coating; anthocyanins; gastrointestinal in vitro digestion; polyphenols; pulsed electric field; oxidative stress; yeast;

    Abstract : Berries are rich natural sources of anthocyanins, water-soluble pigments in plants that have been linked to beneficial effects against chronic diseases, such as cardiovascular diseases, type 2 diabetes and neurodegenerative diseases. However, anthocyanins as well as other polyphenolic compounds are often sensitive to degradation during processing, storage and digestion. READ MORE
