Molecules, Vol. 28, Pages 1297: Self-Emulsifying Micellization of Crude Extracts from Apple (Malus domestica cv. Anna), Plum (Prunus domestica cv. Satsuma), and Guava (Psidium guajava L.) Fruits
In this study, we evaluated the effects of micellar emulsification of tropical apple (Malus domestica cv. Anna), plum (Prunus domestica cv. Satsuma), and guava (Psidium guajava L.) extracts regarding particle size and stability, polyphenol-loading efficiency, antioxidant capacity, and cytotoxic activity in human and murine cells. Simple food-grade extraction protocols were implemented to obtain apple, plum, and guava extracts. Total polyphenols, flavonoids, and antioxidant activity (DPPH) were determined in the fruit extracts, and their polyphenol profile was further characterized by liquid chromatography (HPLC-DAD). The d...

An Overview of Biosynthetic Pathway and Therapeutic Potential of Rutin
Mini Rev Med Chem. 2023 Jan 25. doi: 10.2174/1389557523666230125104101. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTFlavonoids are compounds abundantly found in nature and known as a polyphenolic group of compounds having flavancore and show the utmost abundant collection of complexes and are found in fiber-rich root vegetables, fruits, and their eatable items. Due to the presence of hydroxyl groups, flavonoids show various therapeutic activities like antioxidant, antibacterial, antiviral, and anti-inflammatory. Substituent groups are responsible for the onset of biochemical actions of flavonoids, which affect the metabolism. The major ...

Isolation, identification, biological characteristics, and antifungal efficacy of sodium bicarbonate combined with natamycin on Aspergillus niger from Shengzhou nane (Prunus salicina var. taoxingli) fruit
The fungi causing fruit rot were isolated from symptomatic Shengzhou nane (Prunus salicina var. taoxingli) fruit and were identified as Aspergillus niger by biological characteristics and molecular analysis of the internal transcribed spacer region (rDNA-ITS) and translation elongation factor-1α (TEF-1α) sequences. Optimal growth conditions for A. niger were 30°C, pH 5.0–6.0, and fructose and peptone as carbon and nitrogen sources. The effects of sodium bicarbonate (SBC), natamycin (NT), and combined treatments on A. niger inhibition were investigated. Treatment with 4.0 g/L sodium bicarbonate (SBC) + 5.0 mg/L...

Structural modification of plum (Prunus domestica L) kernel protein isolate by supercritical carbon-dioxide treatment: Functional properties and in-vitro protein digestibility
Int J Biol Macromol. 2023 Jan 5;230:123128. doi: 10.1016/j.ijbiomac.2022.123128. Online ahead of print.ABSTRACTThe effect of supercritical carbon dioxide (SC-CO2) treatment at different processing temperatures (30-70 °C) on the physico-functional properties, structural features, and in-vitro digestibility (IVPD) of plum kernel protein isolates (PKPI) was examined. The results revealed remarkable changes in the secondary structures of SC-CO2-treated PKPIs, including a decrease in α-helix proportion, a concomitant increase in β-sheet content, and a considerable variation in random coils and β-turn structures. The tempera...

Identification of Candidate Genes Associated with Pulp Color by Transcriptomic Analysis of 'Huaxiu' Plum ( < em > Prunus salicina < /em > Lindl.) during Fruit-Ripening
Curr Issues Mol Biol. 2022 Dec 15;44(12):6368-6384. doi: 10.3390/cimb44120434.ABSTRACTThe plum (Prunus salicina Lindl.) is one of the traditional and economically important stone fruit trees in China. Anthocyanins are important pigments in plums. However, little is known about the molecular mechanisms underlying anthocyanin accumulation in plum fruits, which has hindered research on the molecular mechanism of its utilization. Our research shows that the chlorophyll content was gradually decreased and the contents of anthocyanin and flavonoid increased during the coloring process of the pulp in 'Huaxiu' plums (P. salicina)....
