Cytochrome P450IIE1 (CYP2E1) is induced by skatole
and this induction is blocked by androstenone in isolated pig hepatocytes.
In order to detect it in individual pigs cheaply and efficiently, DeRosa's test strips employ aptamers, which are short synthetic strands of DNA that specifically bind to pre-selected molecular targets--in this case androstenone and skatole
An international study on the importance of androstenone and skatole
for boar taint: III.
indole p-cresol dimethly dimethyl trisulfide disulfide Pre-cond 5.
This therefore reduces the production of androstenone and skatole
, hormonal substances which release a strong odour, which is highly unpleasant for consumers.
The effect of feeding system, lysine level and gilt contact on performance, level skatole
and economy of entire male pigs.
20) Nonsulfur containing compounds such as cadaverine, putrescine, indole, and skatole
have also been implicated in oral malodor.
Enterobacterioaceae in the intestinal tract have mostly unpleasant properties since they generate smelly chemicals of the type of skatole
and related indoles.
is detected in pork from boars, barrows, and gilts.
The unpleasant odor of some flatus is the result of trace gases, such as hydrogen sulfide, indole, and skatole
, which are produced when foods decompose in the colon.
There are many types of gas butthe main ones are sulphur - which gives a stink bomb its pong; putrecine;cadaverine; skatole
The prime suspects are skatole
and indole (by-products of protein digestion) and sulfide gases, which are responsible for the smell of rotten eggs.
