The effect of raw and processed vegetables on colonocyte dna damage. (2011)
Thesis
LYNN, A. 2011. The effect of raw and processed vegetables on colonocyte dna damage. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Cruciferous vegetables and their bioactive constituents have been shown to inhibit chemically-induced colon cancer (IARC, 2004). However, the results of epidemiological studies have been inconsistent (IARC, 2004). This may reflect a lack of sensitivi...

Investigation of exopolysaccharide production by lactic acid bacteria. (2008)
Thesis
JONES, R.A. 2008. Investigation of exopolysaccharide production by lactic acid bacteria. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

This thesis is an investigation into the production of exopolysaccharides (EPS) produced by strains of Lactobacillus delbrueckii ssp. bulgaricus and Lactococcus lactis ssp. cremoris. These are used in the dairy industry for the production of yoghurt... Read More about Investigation of exopolysaccharide production by lactic acid bacteria..

Digestive metabolism of glucosinolates: a novel approach using urinary markers for estimating the release of glucosinolate breakdown products in the gastro-intestinal tract of mammals. (2001)
Thesis
ROUZAUD, G.C.M. 2001. Digestive metabolism of glucosinolates: a novel approach using urinary markers for estimating the release of glucosinolate breakdown products in the gastro-intestinal tract of mammals. Robert Gordon University, PhD thesis.

Glucosinolates have been implicated as a mediator of the cancer-protective properties of cruciferous vegetables. Enzymatic hydrolysis of glucosinolates by plant or microbial myrosinase yields a range of metabolites including beneficial isothiocyanate...
