Antioxidant enzyme activities in rat liver tissues of diabetic rats
Sadi, Gökhan; Güray, Tülin; Department of Biochemistry (2004)
Free radicals are the compounds having one or more unpaired electrons in their outer orbital and this unpaired electron make these compounds very reactive. Especially as their concentration increases, they initiate a chain oxidation reaction of lipids, proteins and nucleic acids. The condition, in which the production of free radicals exceeds their elimination or tissue defense mechanism decrease against them or both occur together, is called oxidative stress. In diabetes mellitus which is a glucose metabol...
Antioxidant Capacity and Cytotoxicity of Aesculus hippocastanum on Breast Cancer MCF-7 Cells
Celep, Adviye Gulcin Sagdicoglu; Yilmaz, Sukran; Çoruh, Nursen (2012-09-01)
Aesculus hippocastanum L. is a native tree of Asia. Its leaves, seeds and flowers have long been used in folk medicine and in traditional food ingredients. In this study, the bark, seeds, leaves and flowers as aerial parts of A. hippocastanum were extracted in ethanol. The antioxidant capacity of each part was determined for its 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl radical (DPPH) scavenging capacity, microsomal lipid peroxidation inhibition capacity and total phenolic content. Among all the parts examined, the bar...
Antioxidant and cytotoxic properties of Salvia Absconditiflora and effects on CYP1A1, CYP1B1 gene expressions in breast cancer cell lines
Yılmaz, Selis; İşcan, Mesude; Güray, Tülin; Department of Biochemistry (2013)
Salvia genus is a widely cultivated genus and used in medicine for various purposes as having antimicrobial, antioxidant, anticarcinogen and anti-inflammatory features. In this study the aim was to investigate phenolic composition of Salvia absconditiflora and understand the possible effects of those constituents in cancer related drug metabolizing enzymes. Salvia absconditiflora showed 80,43 % Radical Scavenging Activity against DPPH radical. Total flavonoid content was found as one third of total phenolic...
Antioxidant capacities of selected fruits and herbal teas consumed in regular diet and their antimicrobial activities against Staphylococcus aureus
Barut, Burak; Çoruh, Nursen; Department of Biochemistry (2011)
Staphylococcus aureus is one of the major causes of food-borne pathogenesis. Antibiotic consumption for these pathogens has been increasing year by year world-wide. In order to decrease the use of synthetic antibiotics, fresh fruits and dry herbs consumed as beverages in regular diets were examined as potential natural antibiotics for the treatment of food based infections against Staphylococcus aureus. Herbs consumed as tea infusions including Pimpinella anisum L. (anise), Anthemis arvensis L. (camomile), ...

Many epidemiological studies have revealed that there is a strong correlation between consumption of polyphenol-rich foods or beverages and the prevention of certain diseases such as cancers, cardiovascular diseases and aging. Phenolic compounds are abundant in all plants, therefore they form an integral part of the human diet. Salvia species, commonly known as sage, have been used since ancient times for more than 60 different ailments ranging from aches to epilepsy. There are around 900 species of Salvia,...
