Related to aglycone: glycoside


 (ə-glī′kōn′) or a·gly·con (-kŏn)
The nonsugar component of a glycoside that results from hydrolysis of the glycoside.

During fermentation the microbial activity converts glycine (non-absorbable) form of isoflavones into aglycone that can be easily absorb into large intestine (Nemitz et al., 2015; Hirose et al., 2016).
6Soy Soy contains aglycone, which is a type of isoflavone, and soy beans have big anti-ageing benefits.
Based on the structure (glycoside or aglycone) flavonoids can be absorbed from small intestine or colon.
Aglycone found in soy can further help prevent collagen from breaking down.Two teaspoons of olive oil a day can help combat aging, and a study where people consumed just less than a tablespoon a day combined with five tablespoons of tomato paste found that it also helped protect against sunburn.
indica derived compound classified as saponins, is a heterogenous mixture of molecules varying both in their aglycone and sugar moieties.
Endogenous enzymes within the olive fruit hydrolyze oleuropein and ligstroside into derivative compounds (i.e., oleuropein aglycone, ligstroside aglycone, oleocanthal, oleacein, hydroxytyrosol, tyrosol, oleoside methyl ester, and elenolic acid) that can then themselves be further hydrolyzed [22].
The number of known flavonoids is greater than 4000, and their inhibitory activities are highly varied according to the position and number of functional groups, as well as the glycosylation patterns on flavonoid aglycone [14].
Action of NAGLU resulted in hydrolysis of the glycosidic bond in NAGLU-S forming the aglycone that was the enzyme product (NAGLU-P).
Identification of flavonoid O-glycosides by MS/MS is easy due to the direct loss of sugar moiety from the aglycone in the spectrum.
