Glycation was reportedly reduced the allergenicity of TM, while the allergenicity reduction was heavily dependent upon the sources of saccharides. In this work, how glycation of tropomyosin by functional oligosaccharides affected the allergenicity was investigated. Compared to TM, the TM glycated by galacto-oligosaccharide (TM-GOS), mannan-oligosaccharide (TM-MOS) and maltopentaose (TM-MPS) had lower allergenicity and perfor...
Authors: Haragi M, Ishikawa H, Kiuchi T Abstract Visual representation methods have long been used as tools to communicate information in health education settings, and their effect on improving health literacy has been investigated. The question arises: How should an illustration function in relation to the textual information it illustrates? Medical illustrations are likely to be featured in media such as brochures and textbooks. If the textual information in such materials is so complex, what function should illustrations play? We reviewed the sociological literature on illustrations to obtain findings potential...
