Assessment of Zeolites X and Y as Antimicrobial Fragrance Carriers

Nurcan Bac & Huseyin Erdogmus
Fragrances are a mixture of volatile chemicals or natural oils that can quickly loose their aroma when they are open to the atmosphere. Encapsulation is used to prolong the release of volatile components and control the persistance of fragrance in household products like soaps and detergents. Zeolites can adsorb large amounts of fragrant molecules within their nanosized pores, and prolong delivery of the fragrance, increasing the shelf life of products they are incorporated in. Additionally,...

The aim of this study was to evaluate methionine sulfoxide (MetO) content in the ApoA-I of HDL isolated from type 2 diabetics and healthy subjects. We evaluated the lipid profile of 21 type 2 diabetic...

Endothelial cell dysfunction caused by diabetes and age related reactive dicarbonyls

Andreas Simm, Kathleen Jacobs, Alexander Navarrete-Santos, Hendrik Treede & Britt Hofmann
Background Advanced Glycation Endproducts (AGEs) as well as AGE inducing dicarbonyls are involved in cardiovascular aging. Circulating dicarbonyls like Glyoxal (GO) and Methylglyoxal (MGO) are directly in contact with endothelial cells (ECs) and may be able to modulate EC function. Methods Primary culture ECs were isolated from bypass graft material (HSVECs, human saphenous vein endothelial cells) of patients. HSVECs were chronically stimulated with low and high in vivo glycated BSA, GO and MGO and analyzed...

Nitric Oxide Metabolites and Dinitrosyl Iron Complexes in the Non-Enzymatic Glycation Reactions

Olga V. Kosmachevskaya, Elvira I. Nasybullina, Konstantin B. Shumaev & Alexey F. Topunov
Non-enzymatic glycation (NEG) has to be studying in connection with other reactions. We have shown that methylglyoxal-caused NEG is accompanied with appearance of radical intermediates: methylglyoxal (MG) anion-radical and Schiff base cation-radical. Methylglyoxal anion-radical is responsible for formation of other radical products: superoxide, peroxynitrite and nitrogen dioxide. Nitric oxide (NO) donors S-nitrosothiols inhibite forming of fluorescent glycation products when bio-molecules (hemoproteins, albumin, carnosine) incubating with MG [1]. Other NO metabolites/donors also demonstrated antiglycating properties. The...

Antioxidant Properties of Heterocyclic Maillard Reaction Intermediates

Clemens Kanzler & Lothar Wilfried Kroh
The antioxidant properties of different heterocyclic Maillard reaction products and structural related substances with and without reductone structure were compared in detail. The following five assays were used to measure the antioxidant capacity: TEAC (reduction of a radical cation), FCR (reduction of the Folin-Ciocalteu Reagent), EPR (time-dependent radical scavenging), CUPRAC (reduction of copper(II) ions) and phenanthrolin (reduction of iron(III) ions). The last two assays were especially important, because they allow the identification of compounds that...


The perception of facial expressions of emotions is not an encapsulated mechanism only involving the processing of visual cues. It also integrates information from the context, including the olfactory context. We will present recent data in both adults and infants that show how the olfactory context is integrated during visual perception of emotions in faces. More specifically, both the perception threshold to perceive an expression and the ERPs in response to facial expressions were modulated...
