Defining the genetic relationship of protegrin-related sequences and the in vivo expression of protegrins.

Min-Kyeung Choi, Min Thong Le, Hyesun Cho, Nagasundarapandian Soundrarajan, Hyoim Jeon, Choi Kyu Park, Se Yeoun Cha, Jin-Hoi Kim, Kunho Seo, Chankyu Park,

Protegrins (PGs) are potent antimicrobial peptides that act on a broad spectrum of microorganisms, including bacteria, fungi and some enveloped viruses. We analyzed the expression pattern of protegrins in 17 different pig tissues using RT-PCR, and developed an anti-(PG-1) polyclonal IgG. Western blot analysis using the antibody showed that protegrins ... Read more >>

Dietary supplementation of chardonnay grape seed flour reduces plasma cholesterol concentration, hepatic steatosis, and abdominal fat content in high-fat diet-induced obese hamsters.

Hyunsook Kim, Glenn E Bartley, Torey Arvik, Rebecca Lipson, Seung-Yeol Nah, Kunho Seo, Wallace Yokoyama,

The mechanisms for the hypocholesterolemic and antiobesity effects of grape seed flours derived from white and red winemaking processing were investigated using male Golden Syrian hamsters fed high-fat (HF) diets supplemented with 10% partially defatted grape seed flours from Chardonnay (ChrSd), Cabernet Sauvignon (CabSd), or Syrah (SyrSd) pomace as compared ...
