GST-4-dependent suppression of neurodegeneration in C. elegans models of Parkinson’s and Machado-Joseph Disease by rapeseed pomace extract supplementation. Frontiers in neuroscience [online], 13, article ID 1091. Available from: https://doi.org/10.3389/fnins.2019.01091

Genetic mutations and aging-associated oxidative damage underlie the onset and progression of neurodegenerative diseases, like Parkinson’s disease (PD) and Machado-Joseph disease (MJD). Natural products derived from plants have been regarded as impor...

Study into the polyphenol content and antioxidant activity of rapeseed pomace extracts. (2016)
Presentation / Conference
POHL, F., GOUA, M., BERMANO, G., RUSSELL, W.R., MACIEL, P. and KONG THOO LIN, P. 2016. Study into the polyphenol content and antioxidant activity of rapeseed pomace extracts. Presented at 2016 Nutrition Society's Scottish section meeting: phytochemicals and health: new perspectives on plant based nutrition, 21-22 March 2016, Edinburgh, UK.

Rapeseed pomace (RSP) is a waste product obtained after edible oil production from Brassica napus. This study aimed to determine the polyphenol content, radical scavenging activity, ferric iron reducing antioxidant power and the oxygen-radical absorb...
