Abstract Although the anti-diabetic properties of Konjac glucomannan (KGM) have been reported previously; however, the molecular pathways of its anti-diabetic properties are not clear. The present study hypothesized that KGM could mitigate oxidative stress and inflammation. Three doses of KGM (40, 80, 120 mg/kg b.w.) decreased the levels of plasma glucose and insulin in type-2 diabetic rats induced by a high-fat diet and streptozotocin (STZ) after administration for 28 days. Besides, the C-react...

Abstract In this study, starches were isolated from different non-conventional sources (acorn, black wheat, buckwheat, coix seed, jiaoyu, kuzhu, longya lily, and naked oat) cultivated in China, and their morphological, physico-chemical, and functional properties were analyzed. Among isolated starches, significant differences (p

Decades of research have enabled us to develop a better and sharper understanding of multifaceted nature of cancer. Next-generation sequencing technologies have leveraged our existing knowledge related to intra- and inter-tumor heterogeneity to the next level. Functional genomics have opened new horizons to explore deregulated signaling pathways in different cancers. Therapeutic targeting of deregulated oncogenic signaling cascades by products obtained from natural sources has shown promising re...

China is a major producer of various kinds of food legumes. Some of the under-utilized food legumes are consumed by the local society from different areas in China. The antioxidant capacity and phytochemical profile of these under-utilized food legumes haven’t been investigated until now. In this study, colorimetric and high-performance liquid chromatography was employed to explore the antioxidant capacity and phytochemical profile of 21 under-utilized food legumes. Different legumes under inves...

Blood glucose homeostasis and insulin signaling pathway regulation take a vital role in the management of diabetes mellitus. Our present was designed to explore the mechanism of the blood homeostasis, regulation of oxidative stress and insulin signaling pathway by guava leaf extract (GLE). Diabetes mellitus was induced in male albino Wistar by streptozotocin (STZ) (Single dose-40 mg/kg b.w.). As an extension STZ rats received GLE (GLE; 200 mg/kg b.w). At the end of the study the lipid peroxidati...

Blueberries belong to the genus Vaccinium of the family Ericaceae. Rapidly accumulating experimentally verified data is uncovering tremendous pharmacological properties of biologically active constituents of Blueberries against different diseases. Our rapidly evolving knowledge about multifaceted nature of cancer has opened new horizons to search for different strategies to target multiple effectors of oncogenic networks to effectively inhibit cancer onset and progression. Excitingly, Whole blue...

Abstract Excessive energy intake, poor physical exercise and genetics/epigenetics are instrumental in development of obesity. Because of rapidly emerging evidence related to off-target effects and toxicity of anti-obesity drugs, there is a need to search for more effective and targeted drugs for treatment of obesity. Substantial studies have found the nutritional effects of dietary saponins (bio-detergents) in terms of decreasing the synthesis of lipids, suppressing adipogenesis, inhibiting inte...
