Disease relevance of Food Industry


High impact information on Food Industry

  • These developments are important in the food industry where lactic acid bacteria can be exploited as food-grade cell factories [3].
  • Aspartame is the artificial sweetener most extensively used as a substitute for glucose or sucrose in the food industry, particularly in soft drinks [4].
  • The high reproducibility in subsequent cycles of hybridization/denaturation (by formamide or by heating) points out potential applications of the technique in medical diagnostics, food industry, genomics, and proteomics too [5].
  • Sensitivity at low nanomolar concentration, good resolving power and reliability achieved in the experiments is invaluable for monitoring reaction products from enzymatic polysaccharide digestion with numerous applications in agricultural, chemical and food industries [6].
  • Benzoyl peroxide (BP), used widely in dermatologic therapy and by the food industry, is considered a tumor promoter in chemically induced skin [7].

Biological context of Food Industry


Associations of Food Industry with chemical compounds


Gene context of Food Industry

  • Heterologous expression of the Saccharomyces cerevisiae PGU1 gene in Schizosaccharomyces pombe yields an enzyme with more desirable properties for the food industry [17].
  • These non-reverting his3 mutants contain no heterologous sequence, which is essential to make them acceptable for application in the food industry [18].
  • Recognising the potential value of applying these techniques in the food industry, the Ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Food (MAFF) initiated a nationally coordinated five-year programme of research into the growth and survival of microorganisms in foods, with the aim of developing a computerised Predictive Microbiology Database in the UK [19].
  • Because it is a potent antileukemic agent and a flavor-enhancing agent used in the food industry, many researchers have focused their attention on L-glutaminase [20].
  • SUMMARY: These studies suggest that proteins and drugs that inactivate myostatin, or interfere with its binding to its receptor, may be useful for the therapy of wasting and degenerative muscle diseases and for the food industry [21].
