Glassworts as Possible Anticancer Agents Against Human Colorectal Adenocarcinoma Cells with Their Nutritive, Antioxidant and Phytochemical Profiles

Bozoglu, Faruk
In this study, the possible uses of glassworts as potential food ingredients and their antiproliferative activity against colorectal adenocarcinoma cells together with their antioxidant and phytochemical profiles were investigated for the first time. MeOH extracts of five different taxa collected from different localities were screened for their antioxidant capacities by DPPH (IC50 2.91-5.49mg/ml) and ABTS (24.4-38.5molTE/gextract) assays. Salicornia freitagii exhibited the highest DPPH radical scavenging activity. LC/MS/MS analysis displayed that vanillic acid and p-coumaric acid were two main phenolic compounds in the extract. Salicorniafreitagii extracts also exhibited high antiproliferative activity against HT-29 (IC50 1.67mg/ml) and Caco-2 (IC50 3.03mg/ml) cells for 72h. Mineral analysis indicated that all the species with different proportions of elemental components contained high amount of cations. These results indicate that investigated glassworts, with their high phenolic and mineral contents and also notable antioxidant and cytotoxic properties, may be utilized as a promising source of therapeutics.


Photobiological hydrogen production from sugar beet molasses
Sağır, Emrah; Yücel, Ayşe Meral; Özgür, Ebru; Department of Biochemistry (2012)
The main aim of this study was to investigate biological hydrogen production from sucrose and molasses by purple non-sulphur bacteria (PNS). The hydrogen production capacities of four different PNS bacteria (Rhodobacter capsulatus (DSM 1710), Rhodobacter capsulatus YO3 (Hup-), Rhodopseudomonas palustris (DSM 127) and Rhodobacter sphaeroides O.U.001 (DSM 5864)) were tested on sucrose and molasses. The photobiological hydrogen production were performed in 50 ml and 150 ml small scale photobioreactors, in batc...
Wild Edible Mushrooms from Turkey as Possible Anticancer Agents on HepG2 Cells Together with Their Antioxidant and Antimicrobial Properties
SADİ, GÖKHAN; KAYA, ABDULLAH; Yalcin, Hicret Asli; EMSEN, BUĞRAHAN; KOCABAŞ, AYTAÇ; Kartal, Deniz Irtem; Altay, Ahmet (2016-01-01)
This study was designed to reveal cell growth inhibitory potential of six different edible mushrooms: Ramaria flava, Agrocybe molesta, Volvopluteus gloiocephalus, Lactarius deliciosus, Bovista plumbea, and Tricholoma terreum on HepG2 cells together with their antioxidant and antibacterial power. Methanolic extracts of V. gloiocephalus and aqueous extracts of R. flava had the most potential cytotoxic effects over HepG2 cells. The best results for 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl radical scavenging activities we...
Modulation of mRNA expression and activities of xenobiotic metabolizing enzymes, CYP1A1, CYP1A2, CYP2E1, GPx and GSTP1 by the Salicornia freitagii extract in HT-29 human colon cancer cells
ALTAY, AHMET; İrtem Kartal, Deniz; SADİ, GÖKHAN; Güray, Nülüfer Tülün; YAPRAK, AHMET EMRE (2017-01-01)
Phase I-II detoxification and antioxidant enzymes are responsible for the detoxification and elimination of activated carcinogens, acting as important biomarkers for chemoprevention. Among them, cytochrome P450s plays a prominent role in the metabolic activation of xenobiotics. The herb Salicornia freitagii (SF) (Amaranthaceae) is known for its anticancer, antioxidant, antidiabetic and antiinflammatory activities. In this study, we determined the bioactive phenolics in the SF methanol extract and investigat...
Peanut milk production by the microfluidization, physicochemical, textural and rheological properties of peanut milk products; yoghurt and kefir
Arslan, Simay; Mert, Behiç; Department of Food Engineering (2018)
The aim of this study is to investigate the physicochemical, textural and rheological properties of the peanut yogurt and kefir. In this study microfluidization was applied to obtain peanut milk instead of filter and homogenisation steps in traditional peanut milk production process. In the first part of the study, peanut yogurt was produced as three different formulations from, non-microfluidized peanut milk, microfluidized peanut milk and adding skimmed milk powder (4%, w/w) in microfluidized peanut milk,...
Physicochemical, rheological, and sensory properties of low-fat ice cream designed by double emulsions
TEKIN, Ezgi; Şahin, Serpil; Şümnü, Servet Gülüm (2017-09-01)
This research was conducted to evaluate the applicability and effectiveness of using double emulsions to reduce fat content in ice cream. Polyglycerol poliricinoleate (PGPR)-lecithin blend and guar gum (GG) or guar gum-gum tragacanth (GGGT) blend were used as emulsifier/stabilizer in the formulations. Ice cream samples prepared by double emulsion method and by conventional method were compared in terms of rheological properties, overrun, melt-down resistance, and sensory properties. It was possible to reduc...
