      Epidemiological data suggest that plant-derived phenolics beneficial effects include an inhibition of LDL oxidation. After applying a screening method based on 2,4-dinitrophenyl hydrazine- protein carbonyl reaction to 21 ...
    • The distribution of carotenoids in hens fed on biofortified maize is influenced by feed composition, absorption, resource allocation and storage 

      Moreno Martínez, José Antonio; Díaz-Gómez, J.; Nogareda, Carmina; Angulo Asensio, Eduardo; Sandmann, Gerhard; Portero Otín, Manuel; Serrano Casasola, José Carlos Enrique; Twyman, Richard M.; Capell Capell, Teresa; Zhu, Changfu; Christou, Paul (Nature, 2016)
      Carotenoids are important dietary nutrients with health-promoting effects. The biofortification of staple foods with carotenoids provides an efficient delivery strategy but little is known about the fate and distribution ...
