Abstract null null Moringa oleifera (MO) has started to focus the attention of many researchers, especially in the last decade, due to its rich nutrient content and bioactive compounds that have numerous pharmaceutical potentials. In this systematic review, 36 research articles were included that explored the anti-obesity potential of MO through in-vitro and in-vivo studies. The research articles included 9 in-vitro studies, 27 in-vivo studies, and 3 clinical studies. The studies mainly focused ...
Abstract null null Xanthoangelol (XAG), a major chalcone presents in Angelica keiskei, has been employed in research to develop functional supplements or drugs due to its various pharmacological activities. Here, we investigated the underlying mechanism of XAG-induced cell death in hepatocellular carcinoma (HCC). We found that XAG inhibited the cell viability of either HepG2 or HuH7cells, and induced pyroptotic death in HuH7 cell with concomitant activation of NOD-like receptor family pyrin doma...

Abstract null null Anthocyanins are the predominant bioactive compounds in purple corn. Various studies suggested that anthocyanins from purple corn (APM) not only provide color but also provide potential health-promoting properties. However, there is no research addressing the antiobesity effects of APM via hepatic AMP-activated protein kinase (AMPK) pathway. We find that APM administration (400 mg/kg) significantly decreased body weight gain, epididymal fat mass, total cholesterol and total tr...

Abstract null null Quinoa sourdough can safely be produced if the hygienic threshold of miss-fermentation during the start-up period is overcome. The aims of the present study are to map the microbiota of spontaneously formed quinoa sourdough without backslopping and select Lactiplantibacillus-strains. Viable count from grains and sourdough were performed and picked isolates were identified by gene sequencing. Lactiplantibacillus interspecies differentiation was evaluated by specific primers tar...

Abstract null null The immune effect and the underlying molecular mechanisms of AGPp, a purified polysaccharide extracted from Arca granosa, have been studied in RAW264.7 in vitro. The results showed that AGPp could increase the relative quantity of macrophages, enhance the phagocytosis, and improve the secretion of nitric oxide (NO) and cytokines. Moreover, the results of cell surface receptors screening found that AGPp could bind to the toll-like receptor 4 (TLR4) receptor which on the surface...

Abstract null null Malus hupehensis (Pamp.) Rehd (MH) is a dual-purpose plant used as medicine and food, which possesses various biological activities including hepatoprotective effect. In this study, the hepatoprotective activity of extracts of MH (MHE) against RFP + INH-induced liver injury was investigated. Animals in model group were given saline and INH + RFP. Animals in MHE groups were given MHE and INH + RFP. Animals in normal control group were given equal volume of saline. Subsequently,...

Abstract null null The molecular action underlying peptide intervention before and after colitis induction is different. To investigate the alleviated effects of mulberry leaf protein hydrolysates (MLPH) on colitis and its potential mechanism, MLPH was administered to colitis mice. Results showed that MLPH efficiently alleviated the colitis, and the preventive and therapeutic (P&T) intervention was more effective than the therapeutic intervention alone. MLPH significantly decreased pro-inflammat...
