Project: Analytics and metabolisation studies of (oxy-)phytosterols and -stanols to determine their biological effects
- project duration
- 01-JAN-06 – 31-OCT-10
- Regarding endocrine disruption and illegal agents in foodproducts, the metabolisation of phytosterols and -stanols and/or their oxidation products are studied in the aquatic invertebrate Neomysis integer. The aromatase inhibiting characteristics of these components are investigated. Analytical procedures for identification, quantification and purification of the different metabolites are established with LC-MSn and/or GC-MSn.
