Investigation of How Morning Nutrition Influences Cognitive Performance

2017-05-31 18:38:21 | BioPortfolio


This project will assess the effects of the macro-nutrient make-up of morning food intake on cognitive performance using visual analog scale (VAS) measures, behavioral tests, and advanced high-density electrophysiological techniques (256-channel recordings). Two Isocaloric cereal products will be tested and compared to determine if measures of cognitive performance as well as satiety will change after consumption.

The Effect of Insoluble Yeast Beta-glucan Intake on Pre-diabetic Patients

There is a lot of evidence to show that the yeast beta-glucan has immunomodulatory, anti-inflammatory, anti-infective effects.However,few work was done on the relationship between yeast ba...

Intake of Beta-glucan and Postprandial Regulation of Blood Glucose Metabolism in Healthy Subjects

The overall aim is to investigate the intake of beta-glucan in relation to glucose metabolism and satiety in a postprandial study with healthy subjects. The potential effects will be relat...

Alleviation of Cedar Pollen Induced Allergic Symptoms by Orally Taken Superfine Beta-1,3-Glucan

Intravenous- injection of beta-1,3-glucan in human is known to induce T helper type 1 response, while oral uptake did not. It was examined whether superfine dispersed beta-1,3-glucan (SDG)...

Interaction between cereal β-glucan and proteins in solution and at interfaces.

Cereal β-glucan is well known for its beneficial health effects, such as lowering of blood cholesterol values and a reduced risk of coronary heart disease. These effects are often discussed in relati...

Whole cereal grains and potential health effects: Involvement of the gut microbiota.

The intakes of whole cereal grains (WCGs) have long been linked to decreased risks of metabolic syndromes (MetS) and several chronic diseases. Owing to the complex range of components of cereals, whic...

A computational model for regulation of nanoscale glucan exposure in Candida albicans.

Candida albicans is a virulent human opportunistic pathogen. It evades innate immune surveillance by masking an immunogenic cell wall polysaccharide, β-glucan, from recognition by the immunoreceptor ...

A β-Glucan-Based Dietary Fiber Reduces Mast Cell-Induced Hyperpermeability in Ileum From Patients With Crohn's Disease and Control Subjects.

Administration of β-glucan has shown immune-enhancing effects. Our aim was to investigate whether β-glucan could attenuate mast cell (MC)-induced hyperpermeability in follicle-associated epithelium ...

Preparation and evaluation of β-glucan hydrogel prepared by the radiation technique for drug carrier applications.

β-Glucan can provide excellent environment to apply to drug carrier due to its immunological and anti-inflammatory effect. Minocycline hydrochloride (MH) has excellent oral bioavailability pharmacolo...

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

A plant genus of the family POLYGONACEAE that is used as a cereal grain. Although the seeds are used as cereal, the plant is not one of the cereal grasses (POACEAE).

In glycogen or amylopectin synthesis, the enzyme that catalyzes the transfer of a segment of a 1,4-alpha-glucan chain to a primary hydroxy group in a similar glucan chain. EC

1,4-alpha-D-Glucan-1,4-alpha-D-glucan 4-alpha-D-glucosyltransferase/dextrin 6 alpha-D-glucanohydrolase. An enzyme system having both 4-alpha-glucanotransferase (EC and amylo-1,6-glucosidase (EC activities. As a transferase it transfers a segment of a 1,4-alpha-D-glucan to a new 4-position in an acceptor, which may be glucose or another 1,4-alpha-D-glucan. As a glucosidase it catalyzes the endohydrolysis of 1,6-alpha-D-glucoside linkages at points of branching in chains of 1,4-linked alpha-D-glucose residues. Amylo-1,6-glucosidase activity is deficient in glycogen storage disease type III.

An unbranched glucan in starch.

A highly branched glucan in starch.
