Antioxidative activity of microbial metabolites of (-)-epigallocatechin gallate produced in rat intestines.
(11/17)The antioxidative activities of (-)-epigallocatechin gallate (EGCg) metabolites degraded by rat intestinal flora were investigated by a flow injection analysis coupled to an on-line antioxidant detection system with the 2,2'-azinobis (3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS) radical cation. All of the metabolites were found to have antioxidative activity, suggesting that the EGCg metabolites may show antioxidative activity in the body. (+info)
Exploring the diversity of the microbial world.
(12/17)Yale's Microbial Diversity Institute (MDI) comprises scientists who seek to understand the largely unknown microbial world. In the first MDI symposium at Yale's West Campus in October 2010, four speakers discussed their research in diverse fields within the microbial sciences. The highlights of the symposium are presented here along with an outlook on the future of the MDI. (+info)
