It is known that core-type fucosylation is higher in prostate cancer cells than in other cancer cell types and is associated with high-risk prostate cancer. Here, we developed an automated microcapillary electrophoresis-based immunoassay system for measuring serum core-type fucosylated prostate-specific antigen (PSA) and evaluated whether the serum fucosylated PSA index (FPI) can detect high-risk prostate cancer. Core-type fucosylated-free PSA was measured by our automated microcapillary electrophoresis-based immunoassay system with Pholiota squarrosa lectin. Read More

Mannitol is a sugar alcohol, or polyol, widely used in the food industry because of its low-calorie properties. Industrial production of mannitol is difficult and expensive. However, certain bacterial species are known to produce mannitol naturally, including certain lactic acid bacteria and fructophilic lactic acid bacteria (LAB). Read More

Hypertensive disorders of pregnancy (HDP) lead to the death of approximately 30,000 women annually, and the identification of biomarkers to predict their onset before symptom occurrence is crucial. Here, we aimed to identify the first-trimester maternal serum biomarkers for predicting early-onset HDP via a comprehensive metabolomic analysis. This study was conducted by the Fukushima Regional Center as an adjunct study to the Japan Environment and Children's Study. Read More

This study has characterized the dominant non-starter species isolated from different sites in a Stilton cheese to establish its diversity, stress-tolerance, anti-microbial activity and potential contribution to quality of cheese. Fifty-nine isolates were cultured from the outer crust, blue veins and white core of the cheese and were speciated phenotypically and by 16S rDNA sequence analysis. was the dominant species detected with only two isolates identified as .

Among strategies to improve the health-related aspects of dairy products, great prominence has been given to salt reduction and the use of adjunct cultures that can favor the release of bioactive peptides during cheese ripening. This study aimed to evaluate the effect of the salt reduction, the addition of Lactobacillus helveticus LH-B02 and the ripening time of Prato cheese on the casein hydrolysis profile by capillary electrophoresis, peptide profile by mass spectrometry, and antihypertensive potential evaluated in vitro through the inhibitory activity of the angiotensin-converting enzyme (ACE). Both the salt reduction and the addition of adjunct culture favored the accumulation of the bioactive peptide β-CN (f193-209) (m/z 1881). Read More
