The primary propose of this study is to determine the impact of flavanol-rich cocoa on the growth of the human gut microbiota.
The aim of the present study is to investigate whether the ingestion of a cocoa flavanol-containing drink compared to a flavanol-free drink, improves coronary vasomotion and platelet funct...
A randomised, placebo-controlled, parallel human dietary intervention trial conducted in 33 healthy males to investigate the vascular and cognitive effects of bi-daily consumption of high-...
A randomized, double-masked and cross-over dietary intervention study in healthy young adult males to evaluate the concentration of F-derived metabolites in plasma and urine after single a...
Type 1 Diabetes (T1D) is associated with microvascular changes in the brain, which can cause cognitive dysfunction. Cocoa flavanols (CF) can stimulate vasodilation, resulting in enhanced c...
In this study, we investigated how the acute physiological effects of cocoa flavanols might result in specific cognitive changes, in particular in temporal and spatial attention. To this end, we pre-r...
Grape-derived products contain a wide array of bioactive phenolic compounds which are of significant interest to consumers and researchers for their multiple health benefits. The majority of bioavaila...
Epidemiological studies have suggested controversial associations between flavonoid subclasses and type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM) risk. The aim of the present meta-analysis was to quantitatively esti...
Numerous monomeric and oligomeric flavanol sulfonation products were observed in 10 wines. Levels of 0.85-20.06 mg/L and 0-14.72 mg/L were quantified for two monomeric sulfonated flavan-3-ols, and sur...
The biological processes involved in banana fruit ripening are extremely complex and modulated by a number of genes such as transcription factors (TFs). Although TFs like MADS, ERF and NAC are implica...
An envelope of loose gel surrounding a bacterial cell which is associated with the virulence of pathogenic bacteria. Some capsules have a well-defined border, whereas others form a slime layer that trails off into the medium. Most capsules consist of relatively simple polysaccharides but there are some bacteria whose capsules are made of polypeptides.
A mutation named with the blend of insertion and deletion. It refers to a length difference between two ALLELES where it is unknowable if the difference was originally caused by a SEQUENCE INSERTION or by a SEQUENCE DELETION. If the number of nucleotides in the insertion/deletion is not divisible by three, and it occurs in a protein coding region, it is also a FRAMESHIFT MUTATION.
A product formed from skin, white connective tissue, or bone COLLAGEN. It is used as a protein food adjuvant, plasma substitute, hemostatic, suspending agent in pharmaceutical preparations, and in the manufacturing of capsules and suppositories.
A genus in the family NANOVIRIDAE infecting bananas. The type species is Banana bunchy top virus.
Articles of cloth, usually cotton or rayon and other synthetic or cotton-blend fabrics, used in households, hospitals, physicians' examining rooms, nursing homes, etc., for sheets, pillow cases, toweling, gowns, drapes, and the like.
