• enzymology
  • In enzymology, an isoflavone 3'-hydroxylase (EC 1.14.13.52) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction formononetin + NADPH + H+ + O2 ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } calycosin + NADP+ + H2O The 4 substrates of this enzyme are formononetin, NADPH, H+, and O2, whereas its 3 products are calycosin, NADP+, and H2O. (wikipedia.org)
  • In enzymology, a monoprenyl isoflavone epoxidase (EC 1.14.99.34) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction 7-O-methylluteone + NADPH + H+ + O2 ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } dihydrofurano derivatives + NADP+ + H2O The 4 substrates of this enzyme are 7-O-methylluteone, NADPH, H+, and O2, whereas its 3 products are dihydrofurano pyranoisoflavone derivative, NADP+, and H2O. (wikipedia.org)
  • In enzymology, an isoflavone 7-O-methyltransferase (EC 2.1.1.150) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction S-adenosyl-L-methionine + a 7-hydroxyisoflavone ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } S-adenosyl-L-homocysteine + a 7-methoxyisoflavone Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are S-adenosyl methionine and 7-hydroxyisoflavone, whereas its two products are S-adenosylhomocysteine and 7-methoxyisoflavone. (wikipedia.org)
  • In enzymology, an isoflavone 7-O-glucosyltransferase (EC 2.4.1.170) is an enzyme that catalyzes the chemical reaction UDP-glucose + an isoflavone ⇌ {\displaystyle \rightleftharpoons } UDP + an isoflavone 7-O-beta-D-glucoside Thus, the two substrates of this enzyme are UDP-glucose and isoflavone, whereas its two products are UDP and isoflavone 7-O-beta-D-glucoside.

  • supplements
  • The consumption of isoflavones-rich food or dietary supplements is under preliminary research for its potential association with lower rates of postmenopausal cancer and osteoporosis in women. (wikipedia.org)
  • Despite the frequent use of isoflavone supplements, there are insufficient data on safety and adverse effects. (wikipedia.org)
  • The European Food Safety Authority has conducted a risk assessment of isoflavone supplements for post-menopausal women and could not identify adverse effects with intakes up to 150 mg/d, although it criticised the lack of data. (wikipedia.org)
  • The two supplements are soy isoflavones (treatment) and placebo (carbohydrates). (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • weak
  • Being a weak form of estrogen, isoflavones can compete at estrogen receptor sites, blocking the stronger version naturally produced by the body from exerting its full effect. (fwhc.org)
  • Soy contains isoflavones which are weak estrogens. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • antioxidant
  • Soy isoflavones have antioxidant properties which protect the cardiovascular system from oxidation of LDL (the bad) cholesterol. (fwhc.org)
  • Besides functioning as antioxidant and anthelmintic, many isoflavones have been shown to interact with animal and human estrogen receptors, causing effects in the body similar to those caused by the hormone estrogen. (wikipedia.org)
  • foods
  • Although soy foods contain several components (isoflavones and amino acids) that could potentially have positive effects on bone health, there are few long term, large, clinical trials using soy as a means of improving bone mineral density. (clinicaltrials.gov)
  • The Now Foods soy Vcaps provide an easy and convenient way to still have soy isoflavones in my diet when I travel. (iherb.com)
  • osteoporosis
  • There is conflicting evidence regarding whether soy or isoflavones may be helpful for preventing osteoporosis , but on balance the evidence suggests a modest beneficial effect. (doctors-hospital.net)
  • Isoflavones can fight osteoporosis by stimulating bone formation and inhibiting bone resorption. (fwhc.org)
  • By preserving bone health, increasing bone mass and inducing bone turnover, researchers noted the potential role of soy isoflavones in preventing, and possibly even reversing, the effects of osteoporosis. (fwhc.org)
  • include
  • Other names in common use include isoflavone 2'-monooxygenase, CYP81E1, and CYP Ge-3. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other names in common use include uridine diphosphoglucose-isoflavone 7-O-glucosyltransferase, UDPglucose-favonoid 7-O-glucosyltransferase, and UDPglucose:isoflavone 7-O-glucosyltransferase. (wikipedia.org)
  • Other names in common use include flavone/flavonol 7-O-beta-D-glucoside malonyltransferase, flavone (flavonol) 7-O-glycoside malonyltransferase, malonyl-CoA:flavone/flavonol 7-O-glucoside malonyltransferase, MAT-7, malonyl-coenzyme A:isoflavone 7-O-glucoside-6"-malonyltransferase, and malonyl-coenzyme A:flavone/flavonol-7-O-glycoside malonyltransferase.

  • beverages
  • Rounding up the book are the chapters on function and effects of isoflavones which provide details on isoflavones in beverages, soy and soy products and other food delivery systems and how their function effects the thyroid, menopause, prostate, breast, bone and cardiovascular disease to name but a few.

  • human
  • By mimicking human estrogen at certain sites in the body, isoflavones provide many health benefits that help you to avoid disease. (fwhc.org)
