Molecules, Vol. 26, Pages 256: Structural Characterization of Act c 10.0101 and Pun g 1.0101 —Allergens from the Non-Specific Lipid Transfer Protein Family
Conclusions: Structural studies indicate a conformational flexibility of allergens from the nsLTP family and suggest that immunoglobulin E binding to some surface regions of these allergens may depend on ligand binding. Both Act c 10.0101 and Pun g 1.0101 are likely to be involved in cross-reactive reactions involving other proteins from the nsLTP family. (Source: Molecules)

Next-Generation Sequencing Combined With Conventional Sanger Sequencing Reveals High Molecular Diversity in Actinidia Cirus 1 Populations From Kiwifruit Grown in China
In this study, six libraries prepared from total RNA of leaf samples from 69 kiwifruit plants were subjected to next-generation sequencing (NGS). Actinidia virus 1 (AcV-1), a tentative species in the family Closteroviridae, was discovered in the six libraries. Two full-length and two near-full genome sequences of AcV-1 variants were determined by Sanger sequencing. The genome structure of these Chinese AcV-1 variants was identical to that of isolate K75 and consisted of 12 open reading frames (ORFs). Analyses of these sequences together with the NGS-derived contig sequences revealed high molecular diversity in AcV-1 popula...

18294 Topical treatment with kiwi-derived yeast extract increases hyaluronic acid resulting in improved skin hydration and clinically perceived facial radiance
Background: Hyaluronic acid (HA) is a key molecule involved in maintaining skin structure and moisture, synthesized by hyaluronic acid synthase 2 enzyme (HAS2). However, HAS2 gene expression and activity decrease with age, resulting in declining HA levels, loss of skin radiance and decreased skin firmness. We investigated the effect of a topical Kiwi-derived Yeast Extract (KDYE) on HA and HAS. (Source: Journal of the American Academy of Dermatology)

Osmotic dehydration and convective drying of kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa) - The influence of ultrasound on process kinetics and product quality.
Abstract The aim of this study was to assess the impact of ultrasound on two subsequent processes - initial osmotic dehydration and convective drying of kiwifruit (Actinidia deliciosa). The effect of ultrasound (at a frequency of 25 kHz) was assessed both in terms of process kinetics and product quality. During the study, three different osmotic agents were used - erythritol, sorbitol, and sucrose - in an aqueous solution at a concentration of 50% (w/w). The essential kinetic parameters were analyzed - water loss and increase of dry matter during osmotic dehydration, and evolution of moisture content and temp...

Distortion-free 3D diffusion imaging of the prostate using a multishot diffusion-prepared phase-cycled acquisition and dictionary matching.
Abstract PURPOSE: To achieve three-dimensional (3D) distortion-free apparent diffusion coefficient (ADC) maps for prostate imaging using a multishot diffusion prepared-gradient echo (msDP-GRE) sequence and ADC dictionary matching. METHODS: The msDP-GRE sequence is combined with a 3D Cartesian, centric k-space trajectory with center oversampling. Oversampled k-space center averaging and phase cycling are used to address motion- and eddy current-induced magnitude corruption. Extended-phase-graph (EPG) simulations and ADC dictionary matching are used to compensate for T1 effects. To shorten the acquisition time,...

Sensors, Vol. 20, Pages 4214: Vision System for Automatic On-Tree Kiwifruit Counting and Yield Estimation
ol Farid Melgani Yield estimation is an essential preharvest practice among most large-scale farming companies, since it enables the predetermination of essential logistics to be allocated (i.e., transportation means, supplies, labor force, among others). An overestimation may thus incur further costs, whereas an underestimation entails potential crop waste. More interestingly, an accurate yield estimation enables stakeholders to better place themselves in the market. Yet, computer-aided precision farming is set to play a pivotal role in this respect. Kiwifruit represents a major produce in several countries (e.g., I...

Effect of pilot-scale UV-C light treatment assisted by mild heat on E. coli, L. plantarum and S. cerevisiae inactivation in clear and turbid fruit juices. Storage study of surviving populations.
Abstract Consumer growing demands for high-quality and safe food and beverages have stimulated the interest in alternative preservation technologies. Short-wavelength ultraviolet light (UV-C, 254 nm) has proven to be useful for the decontamination of a great variety of clear juices while improving their quality compared to traditional thermal treatments. Suspended solids and coloured compounds in turbid juices, diminish light transmission. The use of UV-C under a hurdle approach, may be a promising strategy for their treatment.
