This study was conducted to investigate the potential of polyphenols and polyphenol oxidase activity on the induction of rusty symptom development in ginseng root. When rusty inducing bacteria were inoculated on fresh ginseng root, the hue value of
The inhibitory effect of pine needle (Pinus densiflora S.) on potato polyphenol oxidase (PPO) was investigated. The addition of the pine needle extract exhibited a higher inhibitory effect on the potato polyphenol oxidase activity than that of the c
polyphenol contents (PHC) of the exudates were determined measuring absorbance using a spectrophotometer. DPPH and ABTS free radical scavenging activities (50%; SC??) were determined for the antioxidant activities of the exudates. Twenty % ethanol e
Polyphenol oxidase (PPO) isoforms were partially purified from oyster mushroom (Pleurotus ostreatus) using various chromatography techniques, and their characteristics of heat stability, substrate affinity, optimum pH, and optimum temperature were i
Polyphenols are secondary metabolites produced by higher plants and have been used as antiallergic, anticancer, antihypertensive, antiinflammatory, antimicrobial and antioxidant agents. They are generally divided into flavonoids and non-flavonoids.
