- Synergism among Ternary Mixtures of Fourteen Sweeteners. Schiffman, Susan S.; Sattely-Miller, Elizabeth A.; Graham, Brevick G.; Booth, Barbara J.; Gibes, Kernon M. // Chemical Senses;Apr2000, Vol. 25 Issue 2, p131
The purpose of the present study was to determine the degree of synergism of sweet taste among ternary mixtures of 14 sweeteners. A trained panel evaluated ternary mixtures of 14 sweeteners varying in chemical structure and type. The ternary mixtures that were tested were limited to those in...
- From Aldrovandi's â€œHomuncioâ€ (1592) to Buffon's girl (1749) and the â€œWart Manâ€ of Tilesius (1793): antique illustrations of mosaicism in neurofibromatosis? Ruggieri, M.; Polizzi, A. // Journal of Medical Genetics;Mar2003, Vol. 40 Issue 3, p227
Examines antique illustrations of mosaicism in neurofibromatosis. Occurence of dominant disorders; Reflection of heterozygosity for a postzygotic mutation; Limitation of segmental lesions.
- Effect of Repeated Presentation on Sweetness Intensity of Binary and Ternary Mixtures of Sweeteners. Schiffman, Susan S.; Sattely-Miller, Elizabeth A.; Graham, Brevick G.; Zervakis, Jennifer; Butchko, Harriett H.; Stargel, W. Wayne // Chemical Senses;Mar2003, Vol. 28 Issue 3, p219
The purpose of the present study was to determine the effect of repeated presentation of the same sweet stimulus on sweetness intensity ratings. The sweet stimuli tested in this study were binary and ternary blends of 14 sweeteners that varied widely in chemical structure. A trained panel...
- Your Brain on Bubbles. // Prevention;Jan2014, Vol. 66 Issue 1, p24
The article informs that according to a study published in the journal "Gastroenterology," brain regions in the drinkers of sugar-free and sugary sodas detect same sweetness, because of the carbon dioxide, which makes sugar and artificial sweeteners taste similar.
- Weighty Issues. SAMMUT, DAVE // Australasian Science;Dec2016, Vol. 37 Issue 10, p18
The article focuses on the need for independent and consensus science to determine whether artificial sweeteners are effective in reducing obesity and artificial sweeteners are used as sugar replacements for two reasons as they offer lower energy on consumption and achieve sweet taste intensity.
- Psychophysical Evaluation of Sweetness Functions Across Multiple Sweeteners. Low, Julia Y. Q.; McBride, Robert L.; Lacy, Kathleen E.; Keast, Russell S. J. // Chemical Senses;Feb2017, Vol. 42 Issue 2, p111
Sweetness is one of the 5 prototypical tastes and is activated by sugars and non-nutritive sweeteners (NNS). The aim of this study was to investigate measures of sweet taste function [detection threshold (DT), recognition threshold (RT), and suprathreshold intensity ratings] across multiple...
- The new sugar alternatives: are they safe? Broihier, Kitty // Shape;Feb2003, Vol. 22 Issue 6, p117
Presents information on artificial sweeteners and their health risks, if any. Form of availability, sweetness and uses of sweeteners Agave, Neotame, Stevia and Sucralose; Health concern owing to the use of Stevia.
- Mosaicism for ATP2A2 Mutations Causes Segmental Darier's Disease. Sakuntabhai, Anavaj; Dhitavat, Jittima; Burge, Susan; Hovnanian, Alain // Journal of Investigative Dermatology;Dec2000, Vol. 115 Issue 6, p1144
Summary Epidermal naevi are localized malformations of the epidermis consisting of verrucoid scaly papules and plaques following Blaschko's lines. Genetic mosaicism has been proposed to underlie the development of linear epidermal naevi. Rarely, epidermal naevi show acantholytic histology...
- PAX2 mutations in renal—coloboma syndrome: mutational hotspot and germline mosaicism. Amiel, Jeanne; Audollent, Sophie; Joly, Dominique; Dureau, Pascal; Salomon, Rémi; Tellier, Anne-Lorraine; Augé, Joelle; Bouissou, François; Antignac, Corinne; Gubler, Marie-Claire; Eccles, Michel R; Munnich, Arnold; Vekemans, Michel; Lyonnet, Stanislas; Attié-Bitach, Tania // European Journal of Human Genetics;Nov2000, Vol. 8 Issue 11, p820
The renal-coloboma syndrome (RCS, MIM 120330) is an autosomal dominant disorder caused by PAX2 gene mutations. We screened the entire coding sequence of the PAX2 gene for mutations in nine patients with RCS. We found five heterozygous PAX2 gene mutations: a dinucleotide insertion (2G) at...
