Pr Erdogan Orhan from the Gazi University will present Polyphenol Derivatives as Potent Tyrosinase Inhibitors during Malta Polyphenols World Congress 2015

PrOrhanDuring the Malta Polyphenols World Congress 2015, held between June 3-5, Pr. Erdogan Orhan from the Gazi University will present the potent action of Polyphenol Derivatives as Tyrosinase Inhibitors.

"Polyphenols are an abundant chemical class of secondary metabolites in the plant kingdom with desired pharmacological activities for human health. The main function of tyrosinase (TYR, EC 1.14.18.1), a member of polyphenol oxidases (PPOs) having dinuclear copper centers, is known to catalyze browning reactions in vegetables and fruits due to the oxidation and dehydrogenation reactions of polyphenols and, therefore, inhibition of TYR is critical in food industry. Besides, inhibitors of TYR are widely employed in skin-whitening (bleaching) products in cosmetics industry and for the treatment of melanoma. More recently, TYR inhibitors have been searched for the possible treatment of Parkinson’s disease. In this talk, polyphenol type of TYR inhibitors will be discussed."

Dr Gerhäuser will talk about the impact of soy isoflavones on the epigenome in breast cancer prevention during Malta Polyphenols World Congres 2015

Dr Gerhauser 2In Malta on June 3-5, during Polyphenols World Congres 2015, Dr Gerhäuser will talk about the impact of soy isoflavones on the epigenome in breast cancer prevention.

"Within the past decade, polyphenols from various dietary sources have been shown to directly target enzymatic activities or modulate expression of enzymes involved in epigenetic gene regulation by influencing DNA methylation, chromatin structure or expression of non-coding (micro) RNAs. These effects might contribute to their chemopreventive potential mediated by effects on signal transduction mediated by nuclear receptors and transcription factors such as NF-kB, cell proliferation and cell cycle progression, cellular differentiation, DNA repair, apoptosis induction, cell motility, metastasis formation, and cellular senescence. So far, evidence of in vivo epigenetic activities in animal models and human pilot studies and its relevance for chemopreventive efficacy is limite."

Pr Vanden Berghe will give a talk on the role of dietary lifestyle choices in the healthy aging mechanisms during Malta Polyphenols World Congress 2015

Pr Vanden Berghe Wim2Pr Vanden Berghe will give a talk during the Malta Polyphenols World Congress 2015 held between June 3-5.

"Nowadays, epigenetic mechanisms involving DNA methylation, histone modification and microRNA regulation may provide an explanation for the strong interindividual variation in disease risk factors underlying CVD. Dietary lifestyle may strongly affect CVD risk by metabolic (re)programming of our epigenome in utero, after birth or during life. In contrast to genetic mutations, the plasticity of CVD related epigenetic changes makes them attractive candidates for nutritional prevention. The involvement of epigenetic alterations in atherosclerosis will be discussed in relation to the epigenetic impact of a cocoa flavanol diet intervention in the context of personalized nutrition and cardioprotection."

The presentation of Pr Vanden Berghe will discuss the if epigenetics is the key to a personalized nutrition and how to transform inflammaging to healthy aging by dietary lifestyle.

During the Symposium of Malta Polyphenols World Congress 2015, Mrs Gras will give a talk about separation for analysis of Anthocyanins by two different methods from different black carrot

DrGras2Mrs. Gras from the Hohenheim University, will give a talk on June 3 during the symposium on Natural Pigments & Colorants 2015, about Comparison of HPLC and UPLC separation for analysis of anthocyanins from different black carrot varieties (Daucus Carota ssp. Sativus var. Atrorubens Alef).

"Anthocyanins from black carrot (Daucus carota ssp. sativus var. atrorubens Alef.) are natural phenolic pigments widely used for coloring beverages, fruit preparations and confectionary, resulting in a bright red shade at low pH values. They are extraordinarily stable against light and heat exposition due to a high proportion of acylated anthocyanins, which are stabilized via intramolecular co-pigmentation. In the present talk, an ultrasound assisted anthocyanin extraction, their identification and quantitation on a common HPLC-PDA equipped with a C18 core-shell column and modern UPLC-PDA system using a C18 sub-2 µm column were applied and validated. Applying an optimized UPLC separation, differences in the anthocyanin levels in different black carrot varieties will be presented."

During Malta Polyphenols World Congress 2015, Johanna Brauch will give a talk about chemical composition and color stability of the anthocyanin-rich superfruit

Pr BrauchJohanna Brauch will give a talk during Polyphenols World Congres 2015 held in Malta on June 3-5, about maqui berries - chemical composition and color stability of the anthocyanin-rich superfruit.

"Maqui (Aristotelia chilensins (Mol.) Stuntz) is an evergreen shrub originated from South America that yields small edible purple-black berries. Due to their outstandingly high anthocyanin concentration being correlated with high antioxidant activities, the interest in the berries as a healthy coloring foodstuff or additive has significantly increased. However, the fruits were often presumed to be classified as novel food, even though their consumption in Europe is well documented since the end of the 19th century. According to these reports, berries were consumed fresh, as juice or jams, but mostly applied for coloring wine"

During the Symposium on Natural Pigments & Colorants, Pr Durner will give a talk on Formation of anthocyanin-derived in red wine and their contribution to colour, mouth-feel, and astringency perception.

Pr Durner 2

Pr Durner will present anthocyanin pigments formation and role in colour, mouth-feel and astringency of red wine, during the symposium on food & beverages applications at Malta Polyphenols World Congress 2015.

“Key quality parameters of red wines are colour, mouth-feel, and astringency perception. All three are, more or less, driven by polyphenolic compounds originating from grape tissues or wooden barrels. Due to their high reactivity, most of the polyphenolic molecules, including flavanols, anthocyanins, and ellagitannins, undergo reactions with other phenolic moieties or wine constituents during vinification process and red wine aging. Resulting polymeric pigments and anthocyanin derivatives are crucial for the colour stability of red wines. Polymeric pigments in red wines reveal higher colour stability with an increasing molecular weight. Acetaldehyde-linked flavanol-anthocyanin adducts tend to exhibit purple colour with an increasing number of interflavanoid bridges. Besides molecule size, colouring properties are also determined by the number of anthocyanins incorporated in polymeric pigments. A high degree of anthocyanins moieties in tannic structures guarantees high intensity in red colour. Recent studies address anthocyanin molecules incorporated in polymeric pigments being also responsible for a balanced mouth-feel and less unripe astringency perception. From the perspective of a winemaker, the targeted production of these, positively associated, pigments is essential to produce red wines of high quality. The talk will include enological practises to improve and stabilise red wine colour such as barrel aging, micro-oxygenation, and the use enological tannins and oak chips.”

Dr Vassallo will present a talk on the use of polyphenolic compounds as novel protective agents in neurodegenerative diseases, during the Malta Polyphenols World Congress 2015

Dr VassalloDuring Malta Polypenols World Congress 2015, happening between June 3-5 at St Julian's, Dr. Vassallo will give a talk on the use of polyphenolic compounds as a novel strategy for protecting neuronal cells from lipid membrane damage.

"Neurodegenerative disorders, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s disease, are defined by the aberrant misfolding of amyloidogenic proteins (e.g. amyloid-beta, alpha-synuclein, tau) into higher-order toxic aggregates that accumulate in the brain. These toxic aggregates have an intrinsic ability to interact with, and
destabilise, biological membranes leading to neuronal cell death."

Dr Vassallo will discuss the use of plant-derived polyphonic compounds aimed specifically at inhibiting amyloid-membrane interactions and preservating the membrane barrier, thus providong a novel therapeutic strategy for preventing or treating suc disorders.
