in vitro bioaccessibility and effect of mangifera indica (ataulfo) leaf extract on induced dyslipidemia.cardiovascular diseases (cvds) are the leading causes of death in the world, and epidemiological evidence points to dietary habits, stress, and obesity as major risk factors promoting pathological conditions like atherosclerosis, hypertension, and thrombosis. current therapeutic approaches for cvds rely on lifestyle changes and/or the use of drug agents. however, since the efficacy of such interventions is often limited by poor compliance and/or significant side effects, continued research on ne ...201828850305
molecular analysis of anthocyanin biosynthesis pathway genes and their differential expression in mango peel.mango fruit is cherished by masses for its taste and nutrition, contributed by color, flavor and aroma. among these, peel color is an important trait contributing to fruit quality and market value. we attempted to elucidate the role of key genes of anthocyanin biosynthesis pathway related to fruit peel color from the leaf transcriptome of cv. amrapali. a total of 108 mined transcript sequences were assigned to phenylpropanoid flavonoid pathway from which 15 contigs representing anthocyanin biosy ...201829338343
estimation of whole plant photosynthetic rate of irwin mango under artificial and natural lights using a three-dimensional plant model and ray-tracing.photosynthesis is an important physiological response for determination of co₂ fertilization in greenhouses and estimation of crop growth. in order to estimate the whole plant photosynthetic rate, it is necessary to investigate how light interception by crops changes with environmental and morphological factors. the objectives of this study were to analyze plant light interception using a three-dimensional (3d) plant model and ray-tracing, determine the spatial distribution of the photosynthetic ...201829300365
suppressive effect of ethanol extract from mango (mangifera indica l.) peel on ige production in vitro and in vivo.immunoglobulin e (ige) is involved in the onset of allergic reaction, and the suppression of ige production leads to alleviation of allergic symptoms. we found that mango peel ethanol extract (mpe) significantly suppresses ige production by human myeloma cell line u266 cells, suggesting that mpe has an anti-allergic effect by inhibiting the production of ige. although mangiferin is contained in mango, which suppresses ige production by u266 cells, it was not contained in mpe. we investigated the ...201829297259
effect of carbon dioxide (co2) and oxygen (o2) levels on quality of 'palmer' mangoes under controlled atmosphere storage.with the objective to evaluate the modifications in the fruit quality, 'palmer' mangoes were stored at 12.8 °c for 30 days in controlled atmosphere storage that contained a low level of oxygen (5 kpa) which was associated with increasing levels of carbon dioxide co2 (0, 1, 5, 10, 15 and 20 kpa co2). controlled atmosphere storage did not effect mango respiration. however, transfer mangoes, that were previously stored at high levels of co2 (5 kpa o2 + 15 kpa co2 and 5 kpa o2 + 20 kpa co2) to ambie ...201829358805
dietary pectin and mango pulp effects on small intestinal enzyme activity levels and macronutrient digestion in grower pigs.the effects of refined pectin and mango pulp on macronutrient digestion and small intestinal enzyme activity were studied in grower pigs. diets based on wheat starch with and without apple pectin or dried mango fruit pulp were fed to 30 grower pigs for 21 days. pigs were euthanized two hours postprandially, and their gastrointestinal contents recovered. starch and protein digestion as well as α-amylase activity were all increased in pigs fed pectin. in contrast, fat digestion, lipase and proteas ...201829340436
