Abstract

This Dissertation / Report is the outcome of investigation carried out by the creator(s) / author(s) at the department/division of Central Food Technological Research Institute (CFTRI), Mysore mentioned below in this page.

Item Type: Student Project Report
Additional Information: A study was conducted to check the efficacy of banana flower and stem, edible parts of a commonly grown fruit plant, as inhibitors of formation of AGEs. The basic composition of banana flower and stem that will determine its anti-glycation properties were investigated to better understand the pattern and mechanism of inhibition of in-vitro AGE formation. The banana flower extract had a significant, dose-dependent effect on the AGEs fluorescence and showed comparable inhibition to the positive control aminoguanidine. The inhibition was found to be maximum in 5 mg/ml concentration of the extract. Results showed that extracts of banana flower show a significant dose-dependent inhibition of AGEs formation in an in-vitro model, where as banana stem extracts have an effect to a lesser extent.
