Detection of hepatitis A virus by the nucleic acid sequence-based amplification technique and comparison with reverse transcription-PCR. (1/82)

A nucleic acid sequence-based amplification (NASBA) technique for the detection of hepatitis A virus (HAV) in foods was developed and compared to the traditional reverse transcription (RT)-PCR technique. Oligonucleotide primers targeting the VP1 and VP2 genes encoding the major HAV capsid proteins were used for the amplification of viral RNA in an isothermal process resulting in the accumulation of RNA amplicons. Amplicons were detected by hybridization with a digoxigenin-labeled oligonucleotide probe in a dot blot assay format. Using the NASBA, as little as 0.4 ng of target RNA/ml was detected per comparison to 4 ng/ml for RT-PCR. When crude HAV viral lysate was used, a detection limit of 2 PFU (4 x 10(2) PFU/ml) was obtained with NASBA, compared to 50 PFU (1 x 10(4) PFU/ml) obtained with RT-PCR. No interference was encountered in the amplification of HAV RNA in the presence of excess nontarget RNA or DNA. The NASBA system successfully detected HAV recovered from experimentally inoculated samples of waste water, lettuce, and blueberries. Compared to RT-PCR and other amplification techniques, the NASBA system offers several advantages in terms of sensitivity, rapidity, and simplicity. This technique should be readily adaptable for detection of other RNA viruses in both foods and clinical samples.  (+info)

Absorption and metabolism of anthocyanins in elderly women after consumption of elderberry or blueberry. (2/82)

The absorption and metabolism of anthocyanins (ACN) in humans was studied in four elderly women given 12 g elderberry extract (EBX) (720 mg total ACN), and six elderly women given 189 g lowbush blueberry (BB) (690 mg total ACN). The two major ACN in EBX, cyanidin-3-glucoside and cyanidin-3-sambubioside, as well as four metabolites: 1) peonidin 3-glucoside, 2) peonidin 3-sambubioside, 3) peonidin monoglucuronide, and 4) cyanidin-3-glucoside monoglucuronide were identified in urine within 4 h of consumption using HPLC-MS/MS with diode-array detector detection and retention time. Total EBX ACN excretion was 554 +/- 90 microg (mean +/- SD, n = 4) (0.077% of intake/4 h, wt/wt). In 5 of 6 women fed BB, urine samples contained ACN, which were identified as the original forms based upon comparisons to the BB food sample, which contained 24 ACN, 22 of which were identified by HPLC-MS/MS. Reasonable correlations between BB and urine proportions of the different ACN were obtained except for ACN arabinosides. Total urinary excretion during the first 6 h was 23.2 +/- 10.9 microg (mean +/- SD, n = 5) (0.004% of intake/6 h, wt/wt). Plasma ACN levels were below detection limits using 2 mL plasma in women that consumed BB. This study demonstrates for the first time that in vivo methylation of cyanidin to peonidin and glucuronide conjugate formation occurs after people consume ACN and demonstrates the low absorption and excretion of ACN compared with other flavonoids.  (+info)

Anti-angiogenic property of edible berry in a model of hemangioma. (4/82)

Hemangiomas represent a powerful model to study in vivo angiogenesis. Monocyte chemotactic protein 1 (MCP-1) is known to be responsible for recruiting macrophages to sites of infection or inflammation and facilitate angiogenesis. Recently we have demonstrated that edible berry extracts potently suppress inducible vascular endothelial growth factor expression and in vitro angiogenesis. Comparative analysis of several berry extracts led to the observation that wild blueberry and a berry mix were most effective. Our goal was to follow up on our findings with wild blueberry and the berry mix (OptiBerry). The present work rests on our current finding that these two berry powders significantly inhibit inducible MCP-1 expression in endothelioma cells. Therefore, we sought to examine the effects of wild blueberry and berry mix in an in vivo model of experimental angiogenesis. Reporter studies showed that the berry powders significantly inhibited basal MCP-1 transcription and inducible nuclear factor kappaB transcription. Endothelioma cells pre-treated with berry powders showed diminished ability to form hemangioma. Histological analysis demonstrated markedly decreased infiltration of macrophages in hemangioma of treated mice compared to placebo-treated controls. The current results provide the first in vivo evidence substantiating the anti-angiogenic property of edible berries.  (+info)

An outbreak of hepatitis A associated with consumption of raw blueberries. (5/82)

This report describes the epidemiology, investigation and control of a hepatitis A (HAV) outbreak in New Zealand. Descriptive and analytical epidemiology, virology, product traceback and an orchard investigation were carried out. A case-control study revealed that 56% of 39 cases had consumed raw blueberries, compared with 14% of 71 controls (odds ratio 7.6; 95% confidence intervals 2.6-22.4). Traceback of product through retailers and wholesalers implicated a single commercial orchard. Hepatitis A virus was detected by reverse transcriptase polymerase chain reaction in faecal specimens from cases as well as a blueberry product from the orchard. Presence of hepatitis A virus was confirmed by DNA hybridization and sequencing of PCR products. Sanitary audit of the orchard revealed multiple opportunities for contamination of blueberries by pickers. This outbreak highlights the need for food safety programmes in the berry fruit industry.  (+info)

Phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase and its potential role in the catabolism of organic acids in the flesh of soft fruit during ripening. (6/82)

Previous studies of grapes and tomatoes have shown that the abundance of phosphoenolpyruvate carboxykinase (PEPCK) increases in their flesh at the start of ripening, and that this coincides with a decrease in its citrate and/or malate content. Thus, PEPCK might function in the catabolism of organic acid anions during the ripening of these fruits. In the present study, the abundance of PEPCK was determined in the flesh of blueberries, raspberries, red currants, and strawberries at different stages of their development. In addition, changes in the amounts of citrate, malate, soluble sugars, isocitrate lyase, NADP-malic enzyme, phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase, and pyruvate, orthophosphate dikinase in the flesh were determined. PEPCK was not detected in strawberry flesh, in which there was no dissimilation of malate or citrate. In the flesh of the other fruits, the abundance of PEPCK increased during ripening to an amount that was similar to that in grapes and tomatoes. In the flesh of blueberries and red currants, PEPCK was most abundant when there was dissimilation of malate. In the flesh of raspberries, PEPCK was most abundant when there was dissimilation of malate and citrate. These results are consistent with PEPCK playing a role in the dissimilation of citrate and/or malate in the flesh of these fruits during ripening. However, PEPCK was also present in the flesh of blueberries, raspberries, and red currants when there was no dissimilation of malate or citrate, and this raises the possibility that PEPCK might have additional functions. Dissection of blueberries provided evidence that both PEPCK and phosphoenolpyruvate carboxylase were present in the same cells, and possible functions for this are discussed.  (+info)

Blueberry polyphenols increase lifespan and thermotolerance in Caenorhabditis elegans. (7/82)

The beneficial effects of polyphenol compounds in fruits and vegetables are mainly extrapolated from in vitro studies or short-term dietary supplementation studies. Due to cost and duration, relatively little is known about whether dietary polyphenols are beneficial in whole animals, particularly with respect to aging. To address this question, we examined the effects of blueberry polyphenols on lifespan and aging of the nematode, Caenorhabditis elegans, a useful organism for such a study. We report that a complex mixture of blueberry polyphenols increased lifespan and slowed aging-related declines in C. elegans. We also found that these benefits did not just reflect antioxidant activity in these compounds. For instance, blueberry treatment increased survival during acute heat stress, but was not protective against acute oxidative stress. The blueberry extract consists of three major fractions that all contain antioxidant activity. However, only one fraction, enriched in proanthocyanidin compounds, increased C. elegans lifespan and thermotolerance. To further determine how polyphenols prolonged C. elegans lifespan, we analyzed the genetic requirements for these effects. Prolonged lifespan from this treatment required the presence of a CaMKII pathway that mediates osmotic stress resistance, though not other pathways that affect stress resistance and longevity. In conclusion, polyphenolic compounds in blueberries had robust and reproducible benefits during aging that were separable from antioxidant effects.  (+info)

Pterostilbene, an active constituent of blueberries, suppresses aberrant crypt foci formation in the azoxymethane-induced colon carcinogenesis model in rats. (8/82)

PURPOSE: Epidemiologic studies have linked the consumption of fruits and vegetables to reduced risk of several types of cancer. Laboratory animal model studies have provided evidence that stilbenes, phenolic compounds present in grapes and blueberries, play a role in inhibiting the risk of certain cancers. Pterostilbene, a naturally occurring stilbene from blueberries, was tested for its preventive activity against colon carcinogenesis. EXPERIMENTAL DESIGN: Experiments were designed to study the inhibitory effect of pterostilbene against the formation of azoxymethane-induced colonic aberrant crypt foci (ACF) preneoplastic lesions in male F344 rats. Beginning at 7 weeks of age, rats were treated with azoxymethane (15 mg/kg body weight s.c., once weekly for 2 weeks). One day after the second azoxymethane treatment, rats were fed experimental diets containing 0 or 40 ppm of pterostilbene. At 8 weeks after the second azoxymethane treatment, all rats were sacrificed, and colons were evaluated for ACF formation and for inhibition of inducible nitric oxide synthase (iNOS) and proliferating cell nuclear antigen. Effects on mucin MUC2 were also determined. RESULTS: Administration of pterostilbene for 8 weeks significantly suppressed azoxymethane-induced formation of ACF (57% inhibition, P < 0.001) and multiple clusters of aberrant crypts (29% inhibition, P < 0.01). Importantly, dietary pterostilbene also suppressed azoxymethane-induced colonic cell proliferation and iNOS expression. Inhibition of iNOS expression by pterostilbene was confirmed in cultured human colon cancer cells. CONCLUSIONS: The results of the present study suggest that pterostilbene, a compound present in blueberries, is of great interest for the prevention of colon cancer.  (+info)

Wild Blueberries (vaccinium angustifolium) are distinct from their cultivated cousins in several significant ways. Unlike cultivated (highbush) blueberries, Wild (lowbush) Blueberries are not planted. They are spread primarily by rhizomes or underground runners, which give rise to new shoots and stems. Wild Blueberry fields and barrens contain many different varieties of berries, which accounts for the variations in size and color that characterize the Wild Blueberry crop. Wild Blueberry growers use many modern crop management techniques to carefully tend their fields and encourage growth ...
In a Newsweek article from June 17, 2002, neuroscientist James Joseph, of Tufts University, made it clear that when it comes to brain protection, theres nothing quite like blueberries, which he calls the brain berry. Dr. Joseph attributes the blueberrys health benefits to its antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compounds, and sees its potential for reversing short-term memory loss and forestalling many other effects of aging.. 4. Modern Blueberry Production. Today, the most common variety of blueberry sold in the supermarkets are the highbush or cultivated blueberries, which grow on tree-sized shrubs that can get as high as fifteen feet tall. The lowbush, or wild blueberries, grow on small, ankle-high shrubs (only about one foot tall) and are about one-third the size of the cultivated blueberries. The wild blueberries are preferred by people who like the tangy, complex flavor of sweet and sour. The wild blueberries are from a different species than cultivated blueberries, but are part of ...
Blueberries may be cultivated, or they may be picked from semiwild or wild bushes. In North America, the most common cultivated species is V. corymbosum, the northern highbush blueberry. Hybrids of this with other Vaccinium species adapted to southern U.S. climates are known collectively as southern highbush blueberries.[8]. So-called wild (lowbush) blueberries, smaller than cultivated highbush ones, have intense color. The lowbush blueberry, V. angustifolium, is found from the Atlantic provinces westward to Quebec and southward to Michigan and West Virginia. In some areas, it produces natural blueberry barrens, where it is the dominant species covering large areas. Several First Nations communities in Ontario are involved in harvesting wild blueberries. Wild has been adopted as a marketing term for harvests of managed native stands of lowbush blueberries. The bushes are not planted or genetically manipulated, but they are pruned or burned over every two years, and pests are ...

AMHERST, Mass. - As New Englands blueberry season approaches, University of Massachusetts Amherst doctoral candidate Matt Boyer says a fungal pathogen of highbush blueberries known as mummy berry is a common threat to growers, and if left untreated can destroy up to 50 percent of a crop. It is so named because it produces dead-looking, berry-shaped lumps instead of healthy berries.. Boyer, studying organismic and evolutionary biology and entomology, recently received a two-year, $79,000 grant from the U.S. Department of Agriculture to identify the insect vectors that best spread the disease, and to study how variations in insect visitation can explain varying resistance levels among blueberry varieties.. He says, It would be quite valuable to know what insects are responsible for spreading it. There are quite a few other pathogens in the genus that affect other crops, so the problem goes beyond blueberries. The more we know about insect-vectored pathogens the better off we will be, because ...

Blueberry is rich in bioactive substances and possesses powerful antioxidant potential, which can protect against oxidant-induced and inflammatory cell damage and cytotoxicity. The aim of this study was to determine how blueberry affects glucose metabolism and pancreatic β-cell proliferation in high fat diet (HFD)-induced obese mice. Wild type male mice at age of 4 weeks received two different kinds of diets: high-fat diet (HFD) containing 60% fat or modified HFD supplemented with 4% (wt:wt) freeze-dried whole blueberry powder (HFD + B) for 14 weeks. A separate experiment was performed in mice fed with low-fat diet (LFD) containing 10% fat or modified LFD + B supplemented with 4% (wt:wt) freeze-dried whole blueberry powder. The metabolic parameters including blood glucose and insulin levels, glucose and insulin tolerances were measured. Blueberry-supplemented diet significantly increased insulin sensitivity and glucose tolerance in HFD + B mice compared to HFD mice. However, no difference was observed

Home gardeners are sometimes reluctant to spray blueberry bushes to prevent worms because chemical insecticides are poisonous to animals and humans if digested. Always thoroughly wash blueberries before eating them to remove chemicals and dirt. Spray bushes early in the morning, so not to disrupt bees from pollinating buds. Bees generally are more apt to pollinate blueberry bushes in the afternoon rather than the morning when temperatures are cooler. While you dont have to spray blueberry bushes, its basically the best method for controlling worms. If you choose not to spray, inspect blueberries for worm damage before eating them. Discard blueberries that show signs of disease and decay.. ...

ID/Disease Cycle: Witches Broom (WB) is caused by a rust fungus (P. goeppertianum) that requires two hosts (blueberry and balsam fir) to complete its life cycle. Diseased plants have broom-like masses of swollen, spongy shoots with short inter-nodes. Leaves may be small or absent. Young stems on the brooms are initially yellow or reddish, but later become brown and shiny, and, eventually, dry and cracked. Canes infected with witches broom produce little to no fruit; the remainder of the plant may still produce fruit but will become less productive over time The brooms can persist for many years, producing infected new growth every year. While not common in Massachusetts, nearly all blueberry plants may be infected in fields located near fir trees. This is important when considering planting blueberries near Christmas tree plantings.. Airborne spores produced on fir needles infect blueberry leaves and stems in the summer. The fungus becomes systemic and permanent in blueberries. The ...

The study was performed in laboratory rats. While the animal findings suggest blueberries may protect against two health conditions that affect millions of Americans, more research should be done.. The researchers studied the effect of blueberries (freeze-dried blueberries crushed into a powder) that were mixed into the rat diet, as part of either a low- or high-fat diet. They performed many comparisons between the rats consuming the test diets and the control rats receiving no blueberry powder. All the rats were from a research breed that is prone to being severely overweight. In all, after 90 days, the rats that received the blueberry-enriched powder, measured as 2 percent of their diet, had less abdominal fat, lower triglycerides, lower cholesterol, and improved fasting glucose and insulin sensitivity, which are measures of how well the body processes glucose for energy.. While regular blueberry intake reduced these risks for cardiovascular disease and metabolic syndrome, the health benefits ...

Mason et al (2007) measured total phenolic content and antioxidant capacities (using SASA and DPPH) of four cultivars of blueberries grown in Canterbury, New Zealand. Off the four cultivars studied: Burlington, Alanta, Stanley and Jersey; total phenolic content ranged from 230 ± 18 to 297 ± 63mg GAE.100g?1. It was discovered that Burlington blueberries had significantly (P,0.001) higher total phenolic content than the three other varieties. Total phenolic content was compared for both fresh weight and freeze dried; the results were not statically different. This suggests that the nutritional benefits of blueberries are similar when they are fresh or frozen. Antioxidant capacities of the four cultivars were only statistically significant when measured by SASA; the results were not significantly different when measured by DPPH. The author concludes that total phenolic content of New Zealand blueberries is similar to blueberries grown in the US, suggesting that nutritional content is not affected ...
Blueberries increase circulation to the capillaries of the eyes, which results in improved eyesight and reduced oxidation in these tissues. It is useful for preventing diabetic retinopathy as well as treating night blindness, macular degeneration and cataracts. Blueberry concentrate is also beneficial for strengthening all other capillaries, arteries and veins. It can also be used for reducing capillary fragility and permeability in conditions such as varicose veins. An antioxidant/anti-inflammatory, it reduces free radical caused inflammation and histamine release (allergies). Recent studies in animals have shown that as little as 1/2 cup of Blueberries per day can reduce symptoms of aging (memory loss, cognitive and motor impairment) and may help to prevent cancer, heart disease and arthralgias. Blueberries, like other Vaccinium species (Bilberry, Huckleberry, Cranberry) contain flavonoids such as anthocyanins which are potent antioxidants. Blueberries had the highest antioxidant capacity of ...

Put the fresh blueberries in the bottom of a mason jar. Use a fork to mash up the berries in the bottom. pour in the vodka, put on the lid and store in the fridge for at least 12 hours to allow the blueberries to infuse into the vodka. The vodka will turn cloudy right away, and will become purplish the longer it infuses. The longer it infuses, the stronger the blueberry flavor will be.. Once the 12 hours are up, strain the vodka. Save those liquor-soaked berries for garnish! We dont want perfectly good fruit going to waste. In a small bowl, thaw out the frozen berries and mix with sugar. In a fresh mason jar (or serving glass of your choice), pour in the sugared berries (divided between two jars) and add a bunch of ice.. Pour in one part blueberry vodka and two parts lemonade. Give it a good stir. Add a few of the vodka-soaked blueberries and a slice of lemon for garnish, if desired. ...
Blueberries are a rich source of polyphenols, which include anthocyanin bioactive compounds. Epidemiological evidence indicates that incorporating blueberries into the diet may lower the risk of developing type 2 diabetes (T2DM). These findings are supported by pre-clinical and clinical studies that have shown improvements in insulin resistance (i.e., increased insulin sensitivity) after obese and insulin-resistant rodents or humans consumed blueberries. Insulin resistance was assessed by homeostatic model assessment-estimated insulin resistance (HOMA-IR), insulin tolerance tests, and hyperinsulinemic-euglycemic clamps. Additionally, the improvements in glucose tolerance after blueberry consumption were assessed by glucose tolerance tests. However, firm conclusions regarding the anti-diabetic effect of blueberries cannot be drawn due to the small number of existing clinical studies. Although the current evidence is promising, more long-term, randomized, and placebo-controlled trials are needed to
by Joanne Henning Tedesco - As one of the few fruits native to North America, blueberries have been enjoyed here for hundreds of years.. Blueberries range in vibrant colors from deep purple-blue to blue-black and are highlighted by a silvery sheen called a bloom. They have virtually no fat, are low in sodium and contain about 80 calories per cup, with many nutritional benefits.. Blueberries are an excellent source of vitamin C, which is necessary for the growth and development of tissues and promotes wound healing. They also contain manganese, which helps the body process cholesterol and nutrients, such as carbohydrates and protein. And they are rich in polyphenols, which have an antimicrobial and anti-oxidative effect.. Research shows that their specific fiber content can alleviate and protect against intestinal inflammations, such as ulcerative colitis. The protective effect is increased if the blueberries are eaten together with probiotics.. The combination of blueberries and probiotics ...

This is the one I was most excited to try. Ive never experienced a blueberry snus, the only one I know of is made by GN Tobacco for the Russian market, but Ive never been able to get ahold of a can. Epok Blueberry comes in the long/slim format. Use caution when fluffing them, I tried to roll the pouches in my fingers to distribute the tobacco more evenly and the pouches open up rather easily. When you open the can, the clean aroma of the white tobacco comes through (its very hard to explain, you have to try one of these products to know what Im talking about), paired with a very fruity blueberry smell. I really enjoyed the taste of this one. The blueberry taste is front and center, very fresh and fruity, and not too sweet. The clean/washed flavor of the white tobacco is present, but I find that the blueberry taste balances it out quite well. This is one that I would definitely order again ...

PURPOSE: Blueberries are a rich source of anthocyanins (ACNs) and phenolic acids (PA), which are hypothesized to protect against development of atherosclerosis. The present study examined the effect of an ACN- and PA-rich fractions, obtained from a wild blueberry powder, on the capacity to counteract lipid accumulation in macrophages derived from monocytic THP-1 cells. In addition, we tested the capacity of pure ACNs and their metabolites to alter lipid accumulation.. METHODS: THP-1-derived macrophages were incubated with fatty acids (500 μM oleic/palmitic acid, 2:1 ratio) and different concentrations (from 0.05 to 10 μg mL(-1)) of ACN- and PA-rich fractions, pure ACN standards (malvidin, delphinidin and cyanidin 3-glucoside), and metabolites (syringic, gallic and protocatechuic acids). Lipid accumulation was quantified with the fluorescent dye Nile red.. RESULTS: Lipid accumulation was reduced at all concentrations of the ACN-rich fraction tested with a maximum reduction at 10 μg mL(-1) ...
Blueberries are one of the few edibles native to North America and credited with being particularly high in antioxidants. Theyre now grown very widely internationally but the ever-increasing number of varieties marketed means theres no reliable guide to flavour, sweetness or texture. Theyre credited with many different health benefits if a handful or so is eaten every day, but this is only true if eaten raw. Cooked blueberries lose a great deal of nutrition and most also forfeit flavour; only small, sharp wild blueberries picked directly in Maine are likely to retain flavour when cooked, such as in a blueberry muffin - others more often become a purple tasteless mush. ...

Damage to muscle cells exposed to oxidative stress was significantly reduced when also exposed to doses of blueberry fruit extracts, according to findings published in Molecular Nutrition & Food Research. In our study blueberry fruits were suggested as good candidates to combat muscle oxidative damage although further investigations especially at an in vivo level are needed, wrote the researchers, led by Dr Roger Hurst from New Zealand Institute for Plant and Food Research. Blueberries, natures only blue food, are a rich source of polyphenols, potent antioxidants that include phenolics acids, tannins, flavonols and anthocyanins.
