Microwave glycation of soy protein isolate with rare sugar (D-allulose), fructose and glucose

© 2021 Elsevier LtdGlycation, the initial step of Maillard reaction, can be used to modify the properties of proteins. In this study, to speed up the reaction, microwave glycation of soy protein isolate (SPI) in an aqueous medium with fructose, glucose, and D-allulose (rare sugar) were performed at pH 7 and pH 10 and the results were compared with the conventional ‘water bath glycation’ method. The reducing sugar concentration of glycated protein was quantified by High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC) experiments and the structural changes of the soy protein isolate after glycation were investigated by Fourier Transform Infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR) and Time Domain Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (TD-NMR) relaxometry. Alkaline pH was found to be more effective for microwave glycation of soy protein isolate. The reactivity of sugars for microwave glycation reaction was ordered as D-allulose > fructose > glucose. According to the results, microwave heating was found to be more effective for glycation of SPI than water bath heating. NMR relaxometry results provided valuable information about structural characteristics and water mobility in the system.

Real-Time PCR Investigation of the Dynamic Expression of Three "RNA Processing and Modification" Genes of Phanerochaete chrysosporium Exposed to Lead
Tekın, Elif; İçgen, Bülent; Özcengiz, Gülay (Springer Science and Business Media LLC, 2013-01-01)
The expression of three ribosome binding proteins namely; polyadenylate-binding protein, splicing factor RNPS1 and ATP-dependent RNA helicase of Phanerochaete chrysosporium exposed to lead were analyzed by real-time PCR. The mRNA level of splicing factor RNPS1 showed 2.7 (p < 0.05), 2.6 (p < 0.05) and 4.9-fold (p < 0.001) increase when the cells were exposed to 25, 50 and 100 mu M lead, respectively. 50 and 100 mu M lead exposure resulted in almost 2-fold (p < 0.01and p < 0.05, respectively) increase in the...
Thermal decomposition of polystyrene-b-poly(2-vinylpyridine) coordinated to co nanoparticles
Elmaci, Ayşegül; Hacaloğlu, Jale; Kayran, Ceyhan; Sakellariou, Georgios; Hadjichristidis, Nikos (2009-11-01)
Direct pyrolysis mass spectrometry analyses of polystyrene-block-poly(2-vinylpyridne), PS-b-P2VP, indicated that the thermal degradation of each component occurred independently through the decomposition pathways proposed for the corresponding homopolymers; depolymerization for PS and depolymerization and loss of protonated oligomers for P2VP by a more complex degradation mechanism. On the other hand, upon coordination to cobalt nanoparticles, thermal decomposition of the P2VP blocks was initiated by loss o...
Conducting polymers of decanedioic acid bis-(4-pyrrol-1-yl-phenyl) ester
Çırpan, Ali; Toppare, Levent Kamil (Elsevier BV, 2004-05-15)
A dipyrrolyl monomer was synthesized via the reaction between 4-pyrrol-1-yl phenol and decanedioyl dichloride. The electrochemical behavior of this monomer was studied. Polymerization of decanedioic acid bis-(4-pyrrol-1-yi-phenyl) ester (DAPE) was achieved by chemical and constant current electrolyses methods. Copolymerization of DAPE with thiophene was performed by constant potential electrolysis in acetonitrile-tetrabutylammonium tetrafluoroborate (TBAFB), dichloromethane-TBAFB, solvent-electrolyte couple...
Differential expressions and functions of phosphodiesterase enzymes in different regions of the rat heart
DERİCİ, MEHMET KÜRŞAT; SADİ, GÖKHAN; Cenik, Basar; Güray, Nülüfer Tülün; DEMİREL YILMAZ, EMİNE (Elsevier BV, 2019-02-05)
Phosphodiesterase enzymes (PDEs) are responsible for the adjustment of cyclic nucleotide levels. Alterations in PDE expressions in different tissues cause conflicts between functional and clinical effects of PDE inhibitors. Therefore, the aim of this study was to investigate the gene and protein expressions and the functional role of PDEs in atrium and ventricle of rat heart The expressions of PDEs were examined in cardiac intact tissues and enzymatically isolated cells. The effects of PDE1-5 inhibitors (vi...
Prediction of enzyme classes in a hierarchical approach by using spmap
Yaman, Ayşe Gül; Atalay, Mehmet Volkan; Department of Computer Engineering (2009)
Enzymes are proteins that play an important role in biochemical reactions as catalysts. They are classified based on the reaction they catalyzed, in a hierarchical scheme by International Enzyme Commission (EC). This hierarchical scheme is expressed as a four-level tree structure and a unique number is assigned to each enzyme class. There are six major classes at the top level according to the reaction they carried out and sub-classes at the lower levels are further specific reactions of these classes. The ...
