Phytochemical attributes contribute to the health-promoting benefits of mangos
Conducted By: Texas A & M University
Principal Investigator: Drs. Stephen and Susanne Talcott
Timeline: 1/29/2008 – 3/31/2009
- Investigate six (6) mango cultivars in six (6) common cancer cell lines (lung, prostate, breast, pancreas, blood, and colon).
- Evaluate a dose-response (i.e., consumption level) in conjunction with extracts containing compounds with different molecular weights (i.e. digestion effects).
- Evaluate absorption characteristics (using a model of human colon cells) of the phytochemicals in mangoes (emphasis on polyphenolics) in attempt to simulate compound absorption into the human body.
