Content variations of the tomato saponin esculeoside A in various processed tomatoes.

16:43 EDT 18th April 2014 | BioPortfolio

Summary of "Content variations of the tomato saponin esculeoside A in various processed tomatoes."

A tomato saponin, esculeoside A, may be metabolized into various steroidal hormones such as pregnane derivatives that are expected to exhibit various bioactivities in the body, such as anti-osteoporosis, anti-menopausal disorder and anti-tumor actions. Therefore, we attempted to examine the esculeoside A contents of fresh tomatoes, tomatoes boiled in water, tomatoes heated using a microwave oven, freeze-dried tomatoes, and commercially available processed tomato products contained in plastic bottles and cans, in order to develop a health food.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Stretches of genomic DNA that exist in different multiples between individuals. Many copy number variations have been associated with susceptibility or resistance to disease.

A form of interference microscopy in which variations of the refracting index in the object are converted into variations of intensity in the image. This is achieved by the action of a phase plate.

A plant family of the order Solanales, subclass Asteridae. Among the most important are POTATOES; TOMATOES; CAPSICUM (green and red peppers); TOBACCO; and BELLADONNA.

Genes bearing close resemblance to known genes at different loci, but rendered non-functional by additions or deletions in structure that prevent normal transcription or translation. When lacking introns and containing a poly-A segment near the downstream end (as a result of reverse copying from processed nuclear RNA into double-stranded DNA), they are called processed genes.

The aglucon moiety of a saponin molecule. It may be triterpenoid or steroid, usually spirostan, in nature.
