AB  - The aim of this study was to compile a detailed phytochemical profile and assess the antioxidant properties of bee-collected pollen (PBP) obtained from corn poppy (Papaver rhoeas L.) plants. To achieve this, a lipid fraction was prepared for quantifying fatty acids using GC-FID. Extractable and alkaline-hydrolysable PBP fractions (obtained from a defatted sample) were used to determine the qualitative and quantitative profiles of phenolic compounds, phenylamides and alkaloids using UHPLC/Q-ToF-MS. Additionally, various spectrophotometric assays (TAC, FRP, CUPRAC, DPPH⦁) were conducted to evaluate the antioxidant properties. Phenolic compounds were more present in the extractable fraction than in the alkaline-hydrolysable fraction. Luteolin was the predominant compound in the extractable fraction, followed by tricetin and various derivatives of kaempferol. This study presents one of the first reports on the quantification of tricetin aglycone outside the Myrtaceae plant family. The alkaline-hydrolysable fraction exhibited a different phenolic profile, with a significantly lower amount of phenolics. Kaempferol/derivatives, specific compounds like ferulic and 5-carboxyvanillic acids, and (epi)catechin 3-O-gallate were the predominant compounds in this fraction. Regarding phenylamides, the extractable fraction demonstrated a diverse range of these bioactive compounds, with a notable abundance of different spermine derivatives. In contrast, the hydrolysable fraction contained six spermine derivatives and one spermidine derivative. The examined fractions also revealed the presence of seventeen different alkaloids, belonging to the benzylisoquinoline, berberine and isoquinoline classes. The fatty-acid profile confirmed the prevalence of unsaturated fatty acids. Furthermore, both fractions exhibited significant antioxidant activity, with the extractable fraction showing particularly high activity. Among the assays conducted, the CUPRAC assay highlighted the exceptional ability of PBP’s bioactive compounds to reduce cupric ions.

AB  - Stinging nettle (Urtica dioica L.) is one fantastic plant widely used in folk medicine, pharmacy, cosmetics, and food. This plant’s popularity may be explained by its chemical composition, containing a wide range of compounds significant for human health and diet. This study aimed to investigate extracts of exhausted stinging nettle leaves after supercritical fluid extraction obtained using ultrasound and microwave techniques. Extracts were analyzed to obtain insight into the chemical composition and biological activity. These extracts were shown to be more potent than those of previously untreated leaves. The principal component analysis was applied as a pattern recognition tool to visualize the antioxidant capacity and cytotoxic activity of extract obtained from exhausted stinging nettle leaves. An artificial neural network model is presented for the prediction of the antioxidant activity of samples according to polyphenolic profile data, showing a suitable anticipation property (the r2 value during the training cycle for output variables was 0.999).

AB  - Stinging nettle (SN) is an extraordinary plant from the Urticaceae botanical family. It is well-known and widely used in food and folk medicine to treat different disorders and diseases. This article aimed to study the chemical composition of SN leaves extracts, i.e., polyphenolic compounds and vitamins B and C, because many studies ascribed high biological potency to these compounds and their significance in the human diet. Besides the chemical profile, the thermal properties of the extracts were studied. The results confirmed presence of many polyphenolic compounds and vitamins B and C. It also showed that the chemical profile closely correlated with the applied extraction technique. The thermal analysis showed that analyzed samples were thermally stable up to about 160 °C. Thermal degradation of samples UAE, MAE, and MAC took place in four steps, and sample SE in three steps. Altogether, results confirmed the presence of health-beneficial compounds in stinging nettle leaves and indicated the possible application of its extract in pharmaceutical and food industries as both a medicinal and food additive.

AB  - Considering the health-benefits of berry fruits consumption and increased market demands for food authenticity
as one of the most important quality assurances, phenolic profiling by high-performance thin layer chroma-
tography and ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography hyphenated with mass spectrometry was combined
with multivariate analysis for phytochemical characterization and intercultivar discrimination of cultivated
berry seeds. The phenolic profiles of 45 berry seeds from nine genuine Serbian cultivated fruit species (straw-
berry, raspberry, blackberry, black currant, blueberry, gooseberry, cape gooseberry, chokeberry, and goji berry)
revealed a good differentiation according to botanical origin. In order to determine biomarkers responsible for
the classification, a total of 103 phenolic compounds were identified, including 53 phenolic acids and their
derivatives, 26 flavonoids and 24 glycosides. Biomarkers derived from the phenolic profile of berry seeds proved
to be a powerful tool in the authentication of botanical origin, and may be useful in detection of frauds in berry-
based seed-containing product.

AB  - Considering the health-benefits of berry fruits consumption and increased market demands for food authenticityas one of the most important quality assurances, phenolic profiling by high-performance thin layer chroma-tography and ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography hyphenated with mass spectrometry was combinedwith multivariate analysis for phytochemical characterization and intercultivar discrimination of cultivatedberry seeds. The phenolic profiles of 45 berry seeds from nine genuine Serbian cultivated fruit species (straw-berry, raspberry, blackberry, black currant, blueberry, gooseberry, cape gooseberry, chokeberry, and goji berry)revealed a good differentiation according to botanical origin. In order to determine biomarkers responsible forthe classification, a total of 103 phenolic compounds were identified, including 53 phenolic acids and theirderivatives, 26 flavonoids and 24 glycosides. Biomarkers derived from the phenolic profile of berry seeds provedto be a powerful tool in the authentication of botanical origin, and may be useful in detection of frauds in berry-based seed-containing product.

AB  - Strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo L.) honey (STH) has been used since ancient times as a folk medicine remedy, especially in certain Mediterranean countries. This honey, rich in phenolic content, is well recognized for its antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and antimicrobial activities, and is used for the treatment of skin lesions as well as gastrointestinal and respiratory disorders. This study investigated whether STH alleviates genome damage in human peripheral blood lymphocytes produced by the cytotoxic drug irinotecan. The phenolic profile of STH was previously estimated by ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography coupled to a linear ion trap–Orbitrap hybrid mass spectrometer. The effects of STH were evaluated at three concentrations (1×, 5×, and 10×), based on the daily consumption of the honey by an adult person. After 2 h of in vitro exposure, standard lymphocyte cultures for the analysis of chromosome aberrations and the cytokinesis-block micronucleus cytome assay were established. Our results demonstrate that STH offered remarkable geno- and cytoprotection when administered with irinotecan. These findings are relevant for drawing preliminary conclusions regarding the in vitro safety of the tested honey. However, further studies are needed with the application of more complex experimental models.

AB  - The present study provides, for the first time, a physicochemical and biochemical characterization of the redox processes associated with the ripening of Solanum dulcamara L. (bittersweet) berries. Electron Paramagnetic Resonance Spectroscopy (EPRS) and Imaging (EPRI) measurements of reactive oxygen species (ROS) were performed in parallel with the tissue-specific metabolic profiling of major antioxidants and assessment of antioxidant enzymes activity. Fruit transition from the mature green (MG) to ripe red (RR) stage involved changes in the qualitative and quantitative content of antioxidants and the associated cellular oxidation and peroxidation processes. The skin of bittersweet berries, which was the major source of antioxidants, exhibited the highest antioxidant potential against DPPH radicals and nitroxyl spin probe 3CP. The efficient enzymatic antioxidant system played a critical protective role against the deleterious effects of progressive oxidative stress during ripening. Here, we present the EPRI methodology to assess the redox status of fruits and to discriminate between the redox states of different tissues. Interestingly, the intracellular reoxidation of cell-permeable nitroxide probe 3CP was observed for the first time in fruits or any other plant tissue, and its intensity is herein proposed as a reliable indicator of oxidative stress during ripening. The described noninvasive EPRI technique has the potential to have broader application in the study of redox processes associated with the development, senescence, and postharvest storage of fruits, as well as other circumstances in which oxidative stress is implicated.

AB  - Usingmodern analytical techniques, a comprehensive study of the chemical composition
of fruits from apple cultivars grown in Western Norway during 2019 and 2020 was
done. Metals, sugars, organic acids, antioxidant tests, and polyphenol content have
been observed. In all investigated samples, the most dominant sugars were glucose,
fructose, and sucrose. Among 11 tested organic acids, the dominant was malic
acid, followed by citric and maleic acid. The most common metal was potassium,
followed by magnesium and zinc. The quantification of polyphenols showed that among
the 11 quantified polyphenols, chlorogenic acid, quercetin 3-O-rhamnoside, quercetin
3-O-glucoside, quercetin, and phlorizin were the most abundant. A detailed study
of the polyphenolic profile of nine investigated apple samples provided 30 identified
polyphenolic compounds from the class of hydroxybenzoic and hydroxycinnamic acids,
flavonoids, and dihydrochalcones. In addition to the identified 3-O-caffeoylquinic acid,
its two isomers of 5-O-caffeoylquinic acid and three esters were also found. Present
polyphenols of the tested apples provided significant data on the quality of Norwegian
apples, and they contribute to the distinguishing of these apple samples.

AB  - Raspberries are considered valuable fruits due to their high levels of nutrients and phytochemicals, which have many beneficial effects on humans. As many external factors affect the composition of these fruits (the type of cultivation, soil characteristics, ripeness, storage time and post-harvest technologies, cultivar/genotype, and climatic conditions), the goal of this study was to analyze different raspberry cultivars grown in Norway. Considering that Norway is a country with specific climatic conditions, as well as has a limited period of fruit vegetation, another important goal of this study was also to compare raspberries from different Norwegian areas, as well as different grown cultivars. Modern analytical techniques, such as high-performance anion-exchange liquid chromatography with pulsed amperometric detection (HPEAC-PAD), ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography with diode array detector coupled to triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (UHPLC-DAD MS/MS), and inductively coupled plasma–optical emission spectrometry (ICP-OES), provided a detailed examination of the raspberry extract samples. Based on their high levels of minerals (especially N, P, and K), organic acids (predominantly citric and malic acids), sugars (glucose, fructose, sucrose, and galactose), and polyphenols (ellagic acid, syringic acid, quercetin, and rutin), Norwegian raspberries could be considered fruits with increased health-beneficial compounds. The chemical composition of the studied cultivars depended on the locality of growth

AB  - The aim of this study was to compare total phenolic content (TPC), radical-scavenging activity (RSA), total anthocyanin content (TAC), sugar and polyphenolic profiles of two apple cultivars (‘Discovery’ and ‘Red Aroma Orelind’) from organic and integrated production systems in climatic conditions of Western Norway. Sixteen sugars and four sugar alcohols and 19 polyphenols were found in the peel, but less polyphenols were detected in the pulp. The peel of both apples and in both production systems had significantly higher TPC and RSA than the pulp. The peel from integrated apples had higher TPC than the peel from organic apples, while organic apples had higher TAC than the integrated. Sucrose and glucose levels were higher in organic apples; fructose was cultivar dependent while minor sugars were higher in integrated fruits. The most abundant polyphenolic compound in the peel of the tested cultivars was quercetin 3-O-galactoside, while chlorogenic acid was most abundant in the pulp. Regarding polyphenols, phloretin, phloridzin, protocatechuic acid, baicalein and naringenin were higher in organic apple, while quercetin 3-O-galactoside, kaempferol 3-O-glucoside, chlorogenic acid and syringic acid was higher in integrated fruits. In conclusion, organic ‘Discovery’ and integrated ‘Red Aroma Orelind’ had higher bioavailability of health related compounds from the peel and the pulp.

AB  - Cistus creticus subsp. creticus is a shrubby Mediterranean plant used since ancient times in folk medicine for the treatment of different diseases. C. creticus extracts and resin contain different types of secondary metabolites, such as terpenoids (predominantly labdane type diterpenoids), and phenylpropanoids. Growth conditions seem to influence the content of labdane-type diterpenes and flavan-3-ols in leaves of C. creticus subsp. creticus. Histochemical staining of leaves’ trichomes and comprehensive phytochemical characterization of resin, leaves and their exudates, indicated that long-stalked capitate trichomes of C. creticus subsp. creticus, grown both in vitro (IV) and in greenhouse (GH), are capable of producing bioactive oleoresin-related terpenoids and phenylpropanoids compounds. Bioactivity-guided approach was implemented in search for the major antibacterial compound in C. creticus resin against two Gram-negative (Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) and two Gram-positive bacteria (Bacillus cereus and Micrococcus flavus). Bioautographic assay on TLC plates with separated components of Cistus resin extract, revealed a pronounced zone of microbial growth inhibition, corresponded to a highly active compound with Rf values of 0.45, structurally characterized and identified as ent-3β-acetoxy-13-epi-manoyl oxide. This finding opens the route for focusing on isolation and functional characterization of genes involved in the biosynthesis of ent-3β-acetoxy-13-epi-manoyl oxide and its precursor ent-3β-hydroxy-13-epi-manoyl oxide, with the aim to establish sustainable in vitro biotechnological protocols for its large-scale production in homologous and heterologous plant and microbial hosts.

AB  - Quince and sweet cherry are two common edible fruit-producing trees of temperate regions of Euroasia. The phenolic profiles of juices from quince and sweet cherry fruit extracted by the cold-pressing were analyzed by Ultra-High-Performance Liquid Chromatography (UHPLC). Chromatographical results identified 31 phenolic compounds while quantified thirteen for fruit juices. The quantitative data indicate that the predominant phenolic was 5-O-caffeoylquinic acid in quince (8.343 mg L-1) and cherry juice (6.407 mg L-1). Total Flavonoids (TF), Total Phenolic Content (TPC), and Total Antioxidant Capacity (TAC) were also investigated. In both fruit juices, the TF values varied between 0.30-0.97 g L-1 (Catechin Equivalent) and TPC between 0.36 to 0.94 g L-1 (Gallic Acid Equivalent). It is worth noting that the quince fruit juices possessed a higher TPC and TFC compared to sweet cherry fruit juices.

AB  - The variety Prokupac is the dominant variety in the vineyards of Southern Serbia, which
produces quality wines of characteristic and unique tastes. In the agroecological conditions of the
Prokuplje vine district, the influence of manual defoliation on the phenolic profile of the wine
produced from the variety Prokupac was examined. Four experimental treatments with different
timings of manual defoliation were applied: early defoliation—treatment I, early defoliation—
treatment II, late defoliation—treatment III and the control. The phenolic profile of the wine
was determined for the three treatments of defoliation and the control treatment. Additionally,
a multivariate analysis was applied on the obtained results, together with already published data
(grape seeds and skins phenolic profiles). Identification and quantification of the phenolic compounds was performed using ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) with an ultraviolet multi-diode detector (DAD) and mass detector with three analyzers—triple quadrupole (QQQ). Based on the obtained results, it was determined that there are significant differences between the experimental treatments in the content of individual polyphenols, total polyphenols and the antioxidant capacity. Twenty (20) phenolic compounds were identified in the wine samples of the experimental treatments. Defoliation significantly affected the variations of the contents of
phenolic acids and flavonoids. In treatment III, the highest content of gallic acid was obtained,
while the treatments with early defoliation did not differ in relation to the control sample. Early
defoliation in treatments I and II had an effect on the phenolic composition of the wine by favoring
the accumulation of flavonol, while the content of hydroxycinnamic acid and total anthocyanins
(TAC) was higher in treatment III. The TAC increases with later defoliation. The wines obtained by
the defoliation treatments did not show higher antioxidant activity compared to the control sample. A principal component analysis resulted in clustering of the samples based on the phenolic components characteristic for each group of samples.

AB  - This study presents a detailed characterization of 27 honey samples from the Tara Mountain region in Serbia using different comprehensive techniques and methods. The types of the honey samples were defined as monofloral (4 samples), honeydew (5 samples) and polyfloral (18 samples) honey based on determined polyphenol content, antioxidant activity, electrical conductivity and melissopalynological analyses. Physicochemical parameters such as pH (4.13–4.94), diastase activity (24.20–41.70 DN), acidity (14.60–29.70 meq/kg), content of 5-(hydroxymethyl)furfural (in range below 5, up to 16.90 mg/kg), sucrose (0.20–3.90 g/100 g), and moisture content (15.01–19.23%) confirmed the required quality of the honey samples. Sensory analysis revealed honey characteristics favorable to consumers. Analyses of 19 phenolic compounds using ultra-high-performance liquid chromatography with a diode-array detection and triple quadrupole mass spectrometry (UHPLC-DAD-MS/MS) revealed six phenolic acids and 13 other compounds from the group of flavonoids and their glycosides. In all the samples the highest content was determined for p-coumaric acid, followed by caffeic acid and pinocembrin. Besides total phenolic content and radical scavenging activity, antimicrobial activity was also examined. Most honey samples showed bactericidal activity against Staphylococcus aureus and bacteriostatic activity against Escherichia coli, while none of the honey samples inhibited the growth of Candida albicans. Chemometric analyses were applied for an in-depth study of the results to further evaluate the characteristics of the honey samples studied. Principal component analysis (PCA) was used for assessing the differences in physicochemical parameters, polyphenols content and antioxidant capacity between honey samples. The unrooted cluster tree was used to group the samples based on the melissopalynological analyses.

AB  - This study deals with the evaluation of the bioaccessibility and antioxidant properties of phenolic compounds from heat-treated skim goat-milk powder fortified with grape-pomace-seed extract, after in vitro gastrointestinal digestion. Ultra-high performance liquid chromatography coupled to diode array detection and mass spectrometry (UHPLC-DAD MS/MS) analysis confirmed the abundant presence of phenolic acids and flavan-3-ols in the grape-pomace-seed extract (SE) and heat-treated skim goat-milk/seed-extract powder (TME). After in vitro digestion of TME powder and recovery of total quantified phenolics, flavan-3-ols and phenolic acids were 18.11%, 24.54%, and 1.17%, respectively. Low recovery of grape-pomace-seed phenolics indicated strong milk protein–phenolic interactions. Electrophoretic analysis of a soluble fraction of digested heat-treated skim goat milk (TM) and TME samples showed the absence of bands originating from milk proteins, indicating their hydrolysis during in vitro gastrointestinal digestion. The digested TME sample had better antioxidant properties in comparison to the digested TM sample (except for the ferrous ion-chelating capacity, FCC), due to the presence of bioaccessible phenolics. Taking into account the contribution of the digestive cocktail, digested TME sample had lower values of total phenolic content (TPC), in vitro phosphomolybdenum reducing capacity (TAC) and ferric reducing power (FRP), compared to the undigested TME sample. These results could be attributed to low recovery of phenolic compounds. TME powder could be a good carrier of phenolics to the colon; thus, TME powder could be a promising ingredient in the formulation of functional food.

AB  - The strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo L., Ericaceae family) is an evergreen Mediterranean
shrub whose leaves and fruits are used in traditional medicine due to their antioxidant, antimicrobial,
antidiabetic, diuretic, and antiproliferative properties. The health benefits are mainly attributed to the
presence of phenolic compounds. The aim of this study was to compare the phenolic profiles, total
phenolic content (TPC), and radical scavenging activity (RSA) of A. unedo leaves and fruits collected
at two locations in Croatia. Phenolic profiles were identified using an ultra-high-performance liquid
chromatograph (UHPLC) coupled with a hybrid mass spectrometer (LTQ Orbitrap MS). TPC was
determined by Folin–Ciocalteu’s assay, while RSA was investigated using DPPH reagent. A total of
64 phenolics (60 and 42 compounds in leaves and fruits, respectively) were identified. Hyperoside
and flavan-3-ols were predominant compounds in leaves, while gallocatechin and catechin were
the major compounds found in fruits. To the authors’ knowledge, 16 and 5 phenolics in leaves and
fruits, respectively, were reported for the first time. Principal component analysis (PCA) showed
that UHPLC-LTQ Orbitrap MS could be used to identify which phenolics were able to discriminate
samples regarding plant tissue and geographical origin. TPC in leaves and fruits were in the ranges of
67.07–104.74 and 16.78–25.86 mg gallic acid equivalents (GAE)/g dried weight (dw), respectively. RSA
for leaves and fruits were in the ranges of 408.92–430.98 and 74.30–104.04 µmol Trolox equivalents
(TE)/g dw, respectively. The number of identified phenolics was lower in fruits compared to leaves.
Such a large number of bioactive phenolics identified and the strong antioxidant activity pointed to
A. unedo as a promising health-promoting plant and natural food preservative.

AB  - The current study aimed to phytochemically characterize (including a detailed phenolic profile) two endemic Balkan's species (Hieracium waldsteinii and Onosma stellulata) and determine their possible application as a source of natural antioxidant and antimicrobial agents. The main phenolic compound in both species (in all examined parts) was chlorogenic acid. Eriodictyol, genistein and naringenin were quantified only in H. waldsteinii while isorhamnetin-3-O-rutinoside and sinapic acid were characteristic for O. stellulata. The highest antioxidant activity (98 mg AAE/g dry weight for TAC assay) was ascribed to the flower extract of H. waldsteinii while the lowest results (∼4.3 mg AAE/g dry weight for FRP assay) were exhibited by the extracts obtained from the plant's stem. Antimicrobial assays showed moderate antibacterial, i. e., moderate/strong activity against several tested fungi (in particular Trichoderma viride). Correlation analysis revealed strong positive connection between phenolic compounds and reducing power of extracts as well as between total phenolic and flavonoid content and the obtained minimal inhibitory concentration recorded in antibacterial assays.

AB  - IntroductionThe aim of this study was to find the best conditions for the extraction of rutin and quercetin from Sophora flower in acacia honey as an extractant, and to formulate a new product – honey with added value.MethodsFor determination of the optimal extraction conditions of the above mentioned compounds, 10% m/m of the dried Sophora flower was added to honey and the concentration of rutin and quercetin was monitored, at 4 °C and room temperature at 1, 15, 40 and 90 day intervals. The analyses of rutin and quercetin content in honey were performed by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with ultraviolet (UV) detection.

The analyses of rutin and quercetin content in honey were performed by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) with ultraviolet (UV) detection.

AB  - Domesticated international (standard) apple cultivars, together with resistant apple cultivars are the core of the Serbian apple production. Furthermore, autochthonous cultivars are characterized by a good adaptability to the local environmental conditions and represent a valuable source of genetic variability, as well as an important source of the gene pool for further breeding programs. Additionally, they show a higher phenolic content and a stronger antioxidant activity, in comparison to commercial cultivars. Therefore, they are more likely to be used as a functional food. The subjects of this study were seventeen samples of fruits and leaves from autochthonous apple cultivars, five international standard cultivars, and six resistant apple cultivars. The phenolic profile was determined using ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC), coupled with a diode array detector and a TSQ Quantum Access Max triple-quadrupole mass spectrometer. A total of twenty compounds were quantified in the samples. Most of the analyzed phenolics were detected in higher amounts in the peel, compared to the mesocarp. The results of the multivariate analysis of variance (MANOVA) indicate that 5-O-caffeoylquinic acid is present in the highest amount in the mesocarp, while in the peel and leaves, quercetin-glycosides were detected in the highest amount. According to the MANOVA: phloretin, phlorizin, 5-O-caffeoylquinic acid, kaempferol, and p-coumaric acid are present in significantly higher levels in the autochthonous cultivars, compared to the standard and resistant ones (in both fruits and leaves). Therefore, these compounds can be used as chemical tracers of the apple varietal origin.

AB  - Followed by a buildup of its phytochemical profile, Erodium cicutarium is being subjected
to antimicrobial investigation guided with its ethnobotanical use. The results of performed in vitro
screening on Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, and Candida albicans strains, show that
E. cicutarium has antimicrobial activity, with a particular emphasis on clinical S. aureus strains—
both the methicillin sensitive (MSSA) and the methicillin resistant (MRSA) S. aureus. Experimental
design consisted of general methods (the serial microdilution broth assay and the agar well diffusion
assay), as well as observing bactericidal/bacteriostatic activity through time (the “time‐kill”
assay), investigating the effect on cell wall integrity and biofilm formation, and modulation of bacterial
hemolysis. Observed antibacterial activity from above‐described methods led to further activity‐
guided fractionation of water and methanol extracts using bioautography coupled with UHPLCLTQ
OrbiTrap MS4. It was determined that active fractions are predominantly formed by gallic acid
derivatives and flavonol glycosides. Among the most active phytochemicals, galloyl‐shikimic acid
was identified as the most abundant compound. These results point to a direct connection between
galloyl‐shikimic acid and the observed E. cicutarium antibacterial activity, and open several new
research approaches for future investigation

AB  - Strawberry tree (Arbutus unedo L.) honey (STH) is widely used as part of traditional medicine
in the Mediterranean area, especially in the treatment of wounds, burns and infections. In
this study, we investigated the cyto-/genoprotective properties of STH at cell level following
short-term exposure to UVB radiation at 2 kJ/m2. Isolated human peripheral blood lymphocytes
(PBL) were selected as model cells. Phenolics in STH were determined using an ultrahigh-
performance liquid chromatograph (UHPLC) coupled to a linear ion trap-Orbitrap hybrid
mass spectrometer (LTQ Orbitrap MS), while homogentisic acid (HGA) was quantified using a
gas chromatograph-mass spectrometer (GC-MS). Primary DNA damage in PBLs treated with
STH before and after irradiation was assessed by alkaline comet assay, while their viability
was determined using the apoptosis/necrosis assay. The levels of thiobarbituric acid reactive
substances (TBARS) and glutathione (GSH) were determined in plasma samples. STH applied
as pre-treatment at a concentration equivalent to its average daily portion efficiently counteracted
the cytotoxic and genotoxic effects and diminished UVB-induced oxidative stress.
Post-radiation treatment with STH was not as beneficial. Protective effects could be associated
to the complex phytochemical profile of STH and the high content of HGA (306.8mg/
kg). It was confirmed that an intake of a complex mixture of bioactive constituents as STH
prior to potential cyto/genotoxic insults stimulated a broad-spectrum of protective mechanisms,
including intracellular antioxidative defence and DNA repair systems that helped pretreated
cells to counteract harmful exposures more efficiently.

AB  - The main goal of this study was to establish the chemical profile of Osage orange (Maclura pomifera) leaf extracts, obtained by conventional maceration technique, and to examine its antimicrobial activity. The identification and quantification of the extract compounds were done using ultra‐high‐performance liquid chromatography, with a diode array detector coupled with triple‐quadrupole mass spectrometer and gas chromatography–mass spectrometry techniques. Thirty‐one polyphenolic compounds were detected and identified in the ethanolic extracts, whereby 5‐O‐caffeoylquinic acid was found to be the dominant compound. Among other compounds, pentacosane and palmitic acid were the most abundant compounds in the dichloromethane extract. The preliminary antimicrobial activity screening shows that Gram‐positive bacteria tend to be more sensitive to the investigated extracts. The highest antimicrobial activity was determined against Enterococcus faecalis ATCC 19433 and Listeria monocytogenes ATCC 35152. From these results, Osage orange leaves can be considered as plant material with significant antimicrobial properties.
