  • The purpose of this study was to investigate the effects of Curcuma aromatica powder on the functional and sensory characteristics of Mandupi. Various Mandupi samples were prepared with wheat flour along with addition of various amounts of Curcuma aromatica powder, after which instrumental characteristics and sensory evaluations were investigated. According to the amylograph data, the composite Curcuma aromatica powder-wheat flour samples showed increased gelatinization temperatures with increasing Curcuma aromatica powder content, whereas initial viscosity at $95^{\circ}C$, viscosity at $95^{\circ}C$ after 15 minutes, and maximum viscosity were reduced. In terms of Hunter's color values, L value decreased while a and b values increased with increasing Curcuma aromatica powder content. Besides cooked weight, cooked volume and turbidity of Mandupi increased as the addition level of Curcuma aromatica powder increased. In terms of textural characteristics, addition of Curcuma aromatica powder increased springiness, chewiness, and brittleness, whereas springiness and adhesiveness decreased. Based on sensory evaluations, the overall preference of Mandupi with 3% added Curcuma aromatica powder was higher than that of control.

  • This study was conducted to promote the utilization of fish paste with 0, 2, 3, and 4% added Curcuma aromatica powder. The moisture, crude protein, crude lipid, and crude ash contents of the used Curcuma aromatica powder were 11.15, 6.25, 2.36, and 9.98%, respectively. For the Hunter color values, the L, a values of the fish paste decreased with increasing concentrations of Curcuma aromatica powder, while the b values appreciated. In the folding test, whose results reveal the flexibility of the fish paste, all the test samples showed AA results. In the texture meter test, the hardness, cohesiveness, and springiness increased with increasing concentrations of Curcuma aromatica powder, but the gumminess and brittleness of the fish paste were reduced. In the sensory evaluation, the color and taste of the fish paste with 3% added Curcuma aromatica powder were preferred over those of the other fish pastes. These results suggest that Curcuma aromatica powder can be applied to fish paste to achieve high quality and functionality.

  • Objectives: We are aimed to identify anti-tumor effects of Curcuma aromatics on some kinds of cancer cells through molecular biologic methods. Materials & Methods: We used 4 kinds of cancer cell lines such as lung cancer cells(AS49), cervical cancer cells(HeLa), glioma cancer cells(A172) and prostate cancer cells(PC3). We treated the boiled extract of Curcuma aromatica $5{\mu}g,\;10{\mu}g$ to cultural media(ml) for 24 hours. We measured the cytotoxicitv on 4 kinds of cancer cells through tryphan blue exclusion test and the suppressive effect on viability of 4 kinds of cancer cells via MTT assay. We measured change of mitochondria membrane potential via flow cytometry. The quantitative RT-PCR was used to examine the effect on the revelation of Bcl-2 and Bax which are genes related to apoptosis. We examined the effect on the revelation of Bcl-2 Protein and Bar protein by western blot analysis. Results : In the experiment of tryphan blue exclusion test, the extract of Curcuma aromatica showed more significant killing effect on AS49, HeLa than the control group with density dependent manner, which was statistically significant. In the experiment of MTT assay the extract of Curcuma aromatica showed more suppressive effect on viability of A549, HeLa than the control group with density dependent manner, which was statistically significant. Curcuma aromatica induced apoptosis by decreasing the membrane potential of mitochondria in A549, HeLa. In the experiment of the revelation of genes related to apoptosis, the revelation of Bcl-2 decreased and the revelation of Bax increased in A549, HeLa treated with Curcuma aromatica with dose dependent manner. In the experiment of the revelation of protein related to apoptosis, the protein levels of Bcl-2 decreased and the protein levels of Bax increased in AS49, HeLa treated with Curcuma aromatica with dose dependent manner. Conclusions: From this study, we can infer that Curcuma aromatica has anti-tumor effect on lung cancer cells and uterine carcinoma cells but not on glioma cells and prostate cancer cells.

  • P-gp plays a critical role in drug disposition and represents a mechanism for the development of multidrug resistance. Flavonoids, a major class of natural compounds widely present in foods and herbal products, have been shown to inhibit P-gp. Therefore, the aim of this study was to identify new candidate chemosensitizers by screening various plant extracts. The ability of natural plant extracts to inhibit P-gp activity was assessed by measuring cellular accumulation of calcein AM, daunorubicin and vincristine in P-gp overexpressing MDCKII-MDR1 cells. Among more than 800 plant extracts, eight were found to inhibit P-gp activity. Curcuma aromatica extract produced greatest inhibition, followed by Curcuma longa and Dalbergia odorifera extracts. Extracts of Aloe ferox, Curcuma zedoariae rhizome, Zanthoxylum planispinum, and Ageratum conyzoides showed moderate inhibitory effects. Curcumin and quercetin exhibited similar inhibition of P-gpmediated efflux of daunorubicin and vincristine, and flavones had a lesser effect. When chemosensitizing effect was evaluated by measuring daunorubicin sensitivity to MDCKII-MDR1 cells in the presence of natural plant extracts, Curcuma aromatica showed the most potent chemosensitizing effect based on daunorubicin cytotoxicity. In conclusion, natural plant extracts such as Curcuma aromatica can potently inhibit P-gp activity and may have potential as a novel chemosensitizers.

  • Purpose: Curcuma aromatica Salisb., commonly known as turmeric, has long been used as a powerful health-promoting anti-inflammatory or antioxidant that supports cellular health of the human body. The objective of this study was to compare the antioxidant and antimicrobial activities of the samples with or without fermentation. Methods: Antioxidant activities of the samples were compared using total phenol, flavonoid contents, 2,2'-azino-bis (3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid) (ABTS) cation radical scavenging activity and 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging activity. Antimicrobial activities were also examined using the paper disc method and minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC). Results: Organic acid content of the C. aromatica Salisb. fermented with Aspergillus oryzae (FCAS) showed a significantly higher value of 0.41% than that of the typical sample without fermentation (CAS) which showed a value of 0.27% (p<0.001). Total phenol and flavonoid contents of the CAS and FCAS did not show significant differences. However, ABTS cation radical scavenging activity and DPPH radical scavenging activity were significantly increased in the samples with fermentation (p<0.001, p<0.01), respectively. The samples of the disc showed inhibited growth of gram positive Bacillus cereus (FCAS 3.70 cm and CAS 2.73 cm) and Staphylococcus aureus (FCAS 2.70 cm and CAS 1.97 cm). MIC of the FCAS (0.25-0.50, 0.5-1.00 mg/mL) was higher than that of the CAS (1.00-2.00, 2.00-3.00 mg/mL), respectively. Conclusion: C. aromatica Salisb. with fermentation showed higher antioxidant and antimicrobial activities in this study. Thus we conclude that fermentation can be a helpful process for more effective application of C. aromatica Salisb. with fermentation in the health-promoting food industry.

  • Curcuma longa L. (C.L), Curcuma aromatica Salisb. (C.A) and Zingiber officinale Rosc. (Z.O) of Zingiberaceae plants which are well known as effects of natural anti-oxidant, anti-cancer and anti-inflammatory. We examined that the Zingiberaceae plants are involved in development and modulation of orofacial pain in rats. Male, 7- to 8-week-old, Sprague-Dawley rats weighing 240~280 g were used in this study. Experiments were performed using acute pain model that was caused by the injection of 5% formalin into the right vibrissa pad. The number of scratching or rubbing to the injection site was recorded for 9 consecutive 5-minute intervals following injection of formalin. The experimental groups were acute orofacial inflammatory pain; control group (formalin, 5%), vehicle group (5% formalin after sodium carboxymethyl cellulose), single administration group, single mixed administration group, repeated administration group. The experiments were performed various concentrations of Zingiberaceae plants extract. Therefore, oral administration of C.L, C.A, and Z.O (p.o., concentrations of 12.5, 25 mg/mL) in orofacial inflammatory pain model substantially decrease the nociceptive behavior in a concentration dependent manner. And it tended to decrease at low concentration (12.5 mg/mL) of single mixed and repeated administration more than single administration. This result means that Zingiberaceae plants extract affects the modulation of acute orofacial inflammatory pain. Thus, Zingiberaceae plants extract may be a potential therapeutic treatment for orofacial inflammatory pain.
