Abstract Listeria monocytogenes widely exists in the natural environment and does great harm, which can cause worldwide public safety problem. Infection with L. monocytogenes can cause rapid death of Kupffer cell (KCs) in liver tissue and liver damage. American ginseng saponins is a natural compound in plants, which has great potential in inhibiting L. monocytogenes infection. Therefore, American ginseng stem-leaf saponins (AGS) and American ginseng heat-transformed saponins (HTS) were used as r...

Background: As a functional food factor, quinoa saponins are valuable as additives and in medical care, pharmaceutical development, cosmetics and other fields. However, few studies have investigated the toxicity of saponins. The main purpose of this study was to evaluate the toxicity of crude saponins extracted from quinoa husks. Thus, acute toxicity and excretion experiments were carried out in rats. The Ames test, micronucleus test and mouse sperm aberration test were carried out in mice. Resu...

Abstract Background Ginsenosides, which have strong biological activities, can be divided into polar or less polar ginsenosides. Methods This study evaluated the phytochemical diversity of the saponins in Panax ginseng (PG) root, American ginseng (AG) root, and Panax notoginseng (NG) root; the stem-leaves from Panax ginseng (SPG) root, American ginseng (SAG) root, and Panax notoginseng (SNG) root as well as the saponins obtained following heating and acidification (TPG, TAG, TNG, TSPG, TSAG, and...

Abstract The present study investigated the chemical composition of quinoa saponins and examined their possible antimicrobial modes of action against foodborne pathogenic bacteria. Six different compounds (Q1-Q6) were extracted from quinoa husks, separated/purified by column chromatography and identified by HPLC/MS and NMR. The anti-bactericidal effects against six types of bacteria, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Bacillus cereus, Salmonella enteritidis, Pseudomonas aeruginos...

The anthocyanins contents from red rice bran were characterized by HPLC/MS. Response surface methodology was used to optimize the ultrasound-assisted extraction of red rice bran anthocyanin. The antioxidant activities were evaluated in terms of IC50. The tyrosinase inhibitory activities of the anthocyanin samples from red rice bran and the standard substances were determined by a spectrophotometric method. According to mass spectrometry information, the main component of anthocyanins is paeonifl...

Different food processing methods will influence the structure and activity of compounds. In this work, molecular structure and different content crude saponins that were extracted from quinoa, treated with water soaking, water boiling, and water steaming were analyzed by HPLC. Flow cytometry was employed to investigate the effects of the main saponins on the GES-1 cell line. HPLC/MS analysis revealed that water soaking induced an extensive conversion of polar saponin Qc (424.41 +/- 21.11 mg/g) ...

Abstract Ginsenoside has a wide range of pharmacological activities, but little research has been conducted on its microbial pathogen inhibition and the relationship between its antimicrobial activity and saponin structure. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) and minimum bactericidal concentration (MBC) or minimum fungicidal concentration (MFC) of a series of ginsenosides were used to investigate the antimicrobial activity of the ginsenosides. And the value of hydrophile–lipophile balance...

Abstract Background The incidence of halitosis has a prevalence of 22–50% throughout the world and is generally caused by anaerobic oral microorganisms, such as Fusobacterium nucleatum , Clostridium perfringens , and Porphyromonas gingivalis . Previous investigations on the structure-activity relationships of ginsenosides have led to contrasting results. Particularly, the antibacterial activity of less polar ginsenosides against halitosis-related bacteria has not been reported. Methods Crude sap...
