Peroxynitrite scavenging activities of aromatic compounds isolated from Konnyaku, Amorphophallus konjac K.Koch. (1/18)

(+/-)-5,5'-Dimethoxysesamin, erythrinasinate, indole-3-carbaldehyde, (7R,8S)-dihydrodehydrodiconiferyl alcohol 9-O-beta-D-glucopyranoside, cis- and trans-N-(p-coumaroyl)serotonin, serotonin, 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid, and 3,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde have been found in tobiko, a food by-product, and evaluation of their peroxynitrite scavenging activities has been done. Among these compounds, serotonin, trans-N-(p-coumaroyl)serotonin, 3,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde, and 3,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid showed stronger activities than that of BHT (butylated hydroxytoluene) at 200 microM.  (+info)

Effects of konjac extract on insulin sensitivity in high fat diet rats. (2/18)

AIM: To evaluate the effects of konjac extract (KE) on insulin sensitivity in insulin resistance (IR) rats induced by high fat diet (HFD). METHODS: Wistar rats were fed on HFD for 4 weeks, then treated with KE 1.5, 3.0 g/kg/d and metformin (Met) 0.1 g/kg/d for 4 weeks, respectively. The effects of KE on intake of food and drink, body weight, and excretion were investigated. Serum insulin was measured by double-radioimmunoassay. Blood glucose, total cholesterol (TC), triglycerides (TG), and high-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (HDL-C) were measured by enzyme methods, respectively. Low-density lipoprotein-cholesterol (LDL-C) was calculated. Tissue glycogen was determined by modified anthracene ketone method and tissue TG by glycerin phosphor sour oxidation enzyme method. Insulin sensitivity was measured by modified glucose-insulin tolerance test (K value). RESULTS: HFD caused IR after 4 weeks (K value: 5.2+/-0.9 vs 8.3+/-0.7, P<0.01), the levels of blood insulin, TG, and LDL-C increased, while HDL-C, glycogen in liver and skeletal muscle decreased. The storage of TG in liver and skeletal muscle increased. After HFD rats were treated with KE 1.5 and 3.0 g/kg/d for 4 weeks, respectively, the fasting blood glucose (FBG) was decreased from 6.4+/-0.4 to 6.05+/-0.26, 6.0+/-0.3 (P<0.01). Serum TC, TG, LDL-C were decreased, while HDL-C/TC was increased as compared with HFD rats. There was no significant effect on insulin level. KE 1.5, 3.0 g/kg/d, and Met 0.1 g/kg/d could improve insulin sensitivity (K values were 6.1+/-0.5, 5.9+/-0.6, and 6.5+/-0.8 vs 5.2+/-0.9, P<0.05), elevate glycogen, and decrease TG in liver and skeletal muscle. CONCLUSION: KE could promote glycogen syntheses and adjust blood lipid metabolism so as to improve IR in HFD rats.  (+info)

Hypersensitivity pneumonitis induced by Konjak flour and powdered Hijikia fusiforme. (3/18)

This is a report of a patient with occupational hypersensitivity pneumonitis (HP) caused by Konjak flour and powdered Hijikia fusiforme. A 56-year-old man had worked as a Konnyaku manufacturer for 38 years, and suffered from dyspnea on exertion. Konnyaku is a paste made from Konjak flour, powdered Hijikia fusiforme, quicklime, and powdered scallop shell. The diagnosis of HP was confirmed immunologically by the detection of serum precipitins to powdered Hijikia fusiforme, and by the positive result of in vitro lymphocytic proliferative response for Konjak flour using peripheral blood lymphocytes. To our knowledge, this is the first case report of Konnyaku manufacturer's lung.  (+info)

Unusual metaxylem tracheids in petioles of Amorphophallus (Araceae) giant leaves. (4/18)

BACKGROUND AND AIMS: Petioles of huge solitary leaves of mature plants of Amorphophallus resemble tree trunks supporting an umbrella-like crown. Since they may be 4 m tall, adaptations to water transport in the petioles are as important as adaptations to mechanical support of lamina. The petiole is a cylindrical shell composed of compact unlignified tissue with a honeycomb aerenchymatous core. In both parts numerous vascular bundles occur, which are unique because of the scarcity of lignified elements. In the xylemic part of each bundle there is a characteristic canal with unlignified walls. The xylem pecularities are described and interpreted. MATERIAL: Vascular bundles in mature petioles of Amorphophallus titanum and A. gigas plants were studied using light and scanning electron microscopy. KEY RESULTS: The xylemic canal represents a file of huge metaxylem tracheids (diameter 55-200 microm, length >30 mm) with unlignified lateral walls surrounded by turgid parenchyma cells. Only their end walls, orientated steeply, have lignified secondary thickenings. The file is accompanied by a strand of narrow tracheids with lignified bar-type secondary walls, which come into direct contact with the wide tracheid in many places along its length. CONCLUSIONS: The metaxylem tracheids in A. petioles are probably the longest and widest tracheids known. Only their end walls have lignified secondary thickenings. Tracheids are long due to enormous intercalary elongation and wide due to a transverse growth mechanism similar to that underlying formation of aerenchyma cavities. The lack of lignin in lateral walls shifts the function of 'pipe walls' to the turgid parenchyma paving the tracheid. The analogy to carinal canals of Equisetum, as well as other protoxylem lacunas is discussed. The stiff partitions between the long and wide tracheids are interpreted as structures similar to the end walls in vessels.  (+info)

A novel method for measuring dissolution kinetics of pulverized konjac flour. (5/18)

The aim of the current study was to explore a novel method for measuring hydration and dissolution kinetics of the pulverized konjac flour (PK flour) from Amorphophallus albus using RVA-3D+ Rapid Visco Analyzer (RVA; Newport Scientific Pty Ltd., Australia). The results showed that RVA was a reliable fast technique for determining the hydration curve of PK flour. The test conditions determining the hydration curves were optimized at the concentration of PK flour with 1.0%, test temperature at 30+/-1oC, stirring speed at 160 RPM (Revolution Per Minute), and test time of 16 min. An empirical exponential model has also been established to describe the dis-solution kinetics of PK flour at the concentration of 1.0%: eta= 161.9343.EXP (-2.1522/tau) (R2=0.9762) Where tau is the test time (min); eta is the viscosity of the hydration process (RVU) of PK flour. The results also showed that a significant difference among the hydration curves of 1.0% PK flour when dispersed in distilled water and in different concentrations of sucrose aqueous solution.  (+info)

Antioxidant and hepatoprotective activity of ethanolic and aqueous extracts of Amorphophallus campanulatus Roxb. tubers. (7/18)

In the present study, the hepatoprotective activity of ethanolic and aqueous extracts of Amorphophallus campanulatus (Roxb.) tubers were evaluated against carbon tetrachloride (CCl4) induced hepatic damage in rats. The extracts at a dose of 500 mg/kg were administered orally once daily. The substantially elevated serum enzymatic levels were significantly restored towards normalization by the extracts. Silymarin was used as a standard reference and exhibited significant hepatoprotective activity against carbon tetrachloride induced haptotoxicity in rats. The biochemical observations were supplemented with histopathological examination of rat liver sections. The results of this study strongly indicate that Amorphophallus campanulatus (Roxb.) tubers have potent hepatoprotective action against carbon tetrachloride induced hepatic damage in rats. The ethanolic extract was found hepatoprotective more potent than the aqueous extract. The antioxidant activity was also screened and found positive for both ethanolic and aqueous extracts. This study suggests that possible mechanism of this activity may be due to free radical scavenging potential caused by the presence of flavonoids in the extracts.  (+info)

Chemical identity of a rotting animal-like odor emitted from the inflorescence of the titan arum (Amorphophallus titanum). (8/18)

The titan arum, Amorphophallus titanum, is a flowering plant with the largest inflorescence in the world. The flower emits a unique rotting animal-like odor that attracts insects for pollination. To determine the chemical identity of this characteristic odor, we performed gas chromatography-mass spectrometry-olfactometry analysis of volatiles derived from the inflorescence. The main odorant causing the smell during the flower-opening phase was identified as dimethyl trisulfide, a compound with a sulfury odor that has been found to be emitted from some vegetables, microorganisms, and cancerous wounds.  (+info)

"Amorphophallus" is a genus of flowering plants in the family Araceae, also known as the aroid family. These plants are native to tropical regions of Africa, Asia, and the Pacific Islands. They are characterized by their large, distinctive inflorescences, which are often accompanied by a strong, unpleasant odor that attracts pollinators such as flies and beetles.

The name "Amorphophallus" comes from the Greek words "amorphos," meaning formless, and "phallos," meaning penis, and refers to the shape of the inflorescence in some species. The most well-known species is Amorphophallus titanum, also known as the corpse flower, which produces one of the largest and smelliest inflorescences in the plant kingdom.

In addition to their unusual inflorescences, many species of Amorphophallus are also grown for their large, starchy tubers, which are used as a food source in some cultures.

Araceae is a family of flowering plants, also known as the arum or aroid family. It includes a diverse range of species, such as calla lilies, peace lilies, and jack-in-the-pulpit. These plants are characterized by their unique inflorescence structure, which consists of a specialized leaf-like structure called a spathe that surrounds and protects a spike-like structure called a spadix, where the flowers are located.

The flowers of Araceae plants are often small and inconspicuous, and may be surrounded by showy bracts or modified leaves. Many species in this family produce attractive berries or fruits that contain seeds. Some members of Araceae contain calcium oxalate crystals, which can cause irritation to the skin and mucous membranes if handled improperly.

Araceae plants are found worldwide, with a majority of species occurring in tropical regions. They are grown for their ornamental value, as well as for their edible fruits and tubers. Some species have medicinal uses, while others are invasive and can cause ecological damage in certain areas.

"Arum" is a genus name that refers to a group of flowering plants in the family Araceae. These plants are commonly known as calla lilies, jack-in-the-pulpit, and wild arums. Some species of Arum contain calcium oxalate crystals, which can cause irritation and pain if ingested or come into contact with skin or mucous membranes.

It is worth noting that "Arum" is not a medical term per se, but rather a scientific name for a group of plants. However, it is possible to have an allergic reaction or other adverse effects from exposure to these plants, so it is important to be aware of their potential hazards if you come into contact with them.

I'm sorry for any confusion, but "flowers" is not a term that has a medical definition. The term "flowers" is commonly used to refer to the reproductive structures of flowering plants (angiosperms), which are characterized by having both male and female reproductive organs or separate male and female flowers.

If you have any questions related to medical terminology or health conditions, I would be happy to try to help answer those for you!

Helichrysum is a genus of plants belonging to the daisy family, Asteraceae. There are several species within this genus, and they are native to the Mediterranean region, southern Europe, and eastern Africa. Some common names for Helichrysum include everlasting, immortelle, and curry plant.

In the context of medical or therapeutic uses, Helichrysum is often referred to as Helichrysum italicum, which is also known as the Italian straw flower. The essential oil derived from this plant is used in aromatherapy for its purported anti-inflammatory, antioxidant, and wound-healing properties. It is sometimes used topically for skin conditions such as acne, eczema, and wounds, and it is also believed to have calming effects on the mind and body. However, it's important to note that the scientific evidence supporting these claims is limited, and more research is needed to confirm their effectiveness and safety.

I'm sorry for any confusion, but the term "Saturn" is not a medical term. In general, it refers to the sixth planet from the sun in our solar system. If you have any medical concerns or questions, I would be happy to try and help answer those for you.

Corpse dismemberment refers to the act of cutting up or disarticulating a dead body into separate parts or sections. This may be done for various reasons, such as facilitating transportation, disposal, or concealment of the body. In some cases, it may also be related to certain cultural or religious practices. However, in forensic contexts, corpse dismemberment is often associated with criminal activities, such as homicide, where the perpetrator may attempt to hide evidence or make identification of the victim more difficult. The legal and ethical implications of corpse dismemberment are significant, and it is generally governed by laws related to desecration of dead bodies and improper disposal of human remains.

Scent glands are specialized sebaceous (oil) or sudoriferous (sweat) glands in various animals that produce and release scents for different purposes, such as marking territory, attracting mates, or providing warning signals. These scents can be released through various methods, including rubbing, spraying, or secreting onto fur or skin. Examples of scent glands include the anal glands in dogs and cats, the musk glands in deer, and the civet gland in civets. In humans, scent glands are not as developed or specialized, but some sebaceous glands can produce scents associated with personal body odor.
