    Number of hydroxyl groups on the B-ring of flavonoids affects their antioxidant activity and interaction with phorbol ester binding site of PKCδ C1B domain: in Vitro and in silico studies 

    Teeradate Kongpichitchoke; Hsu, Jue-Liang; Huang, Tzou-Chi (American Chemical Society, 2015)

    Although flavonoids have been reported for their benefits and nutraceutical potential use, the importance of their structure on their beneficial effects, especially on signal transduction mechanisms, has not been well clarified. In this study, three flavonoids, pinocembrin, naringenin, and eriodictyol, were chosen to determine the effect of hydroxyl groups on the B-ring of flavonoid structure on their antioxidant activity. In vitro assays, including DPPH scavenging activity, ROS quantification by flow cytometer, and proteins immunoblotting, and in silico ...

    Production, purification and characterization of an ionic liquid tolerant cellulase from Bacillus sp. isolated from rice paddy field soil 

    Patchanee Yasurin (2015)

    Background: Lignocellulosic biomass is a renewable, abundant, and inexpensive resource for biorefining process to produce biofuel and valuable chemicals. To make the process become feasible, it requires the use of both efficient pretreatment and hydrolysis enzymes to generate fermentable sugars. Ionic liquid (IL) pretreatment has been demonstrated to be a promising method to enhance the saccharification of biomass by cellulase enzyme; however, the remaining IL in the hydrolysis buffer strongly inhibits the function of cellulase. This study aimed ...

    Properties and applications of different probiotic delivery systems 

    Wunwisa Krasaekoopt (2012)

    Probiotic products should contain and maintain viable cells during the product shelf life at least above therapeutic minimum level for the benefit of consumers. Due to their generally poor viability and stability in food products, especially in fermented dairy products, as well as in the host gastrointestinal tract, various microencapsulation techniques for probiotics have been developed in recent years to overcome these issues. This chapter describes the benefit of microencapsulation, various encapsulation techniques used to encapsulate probiotics ...

    Review: antibacterial, antioxidant and chemical profile of centella asiatica 

    Supawan Rattanakom; Patchanee Yasurin (2014)

    Plants have been used since ancient times whether as foods/seasoning or medicinal purposes. The used of plants for medicinal purposes can be found almost every parts of the world; from Africa to Europe. Nowadays, there are increasing trends of using natural products. From the discovery that effective life span of any antibiotic is limited. Scientists try to discover alternatives. One of the sources is from plants. As they have an almost limitless ability to synthesize aromatic substances especially plant secondary metabolites. Most of plant ...

    Stability of Orange Oil-in-Water Emulsions Prepared by Multilayer Membranes 

    Suwimon Ariyaprakai; Qi, Wu Jai (2013)

    Due to the small molecular size of orange oil, primary orange oil–in-water emulsion can easily undergo Ostwald ripening destabilization. To improve the stability of orange oil emulsion, multilayer emul- sion was prepared using Citrem as emulsifier and gelatin as coated biopolymer. Firstly, primary emulsion containing 20 wt% orange oil and 0.4 wt% Citrem was produced. Since Citrem was an anionic emulsifier, the primary emulsion had a negative charge of ~ -57mV. Then, the primary emulsion was suspended in 0.5 wt% gelatin aqueous solution ...
