Solid-state Fermentation in the Bioavailability of Nutrients in Rice Bran

Rice bran, a by-product of grain processing, is nutrient-dense and high in bioactive compounds. Rice bran, on the other hand, has some disadvantages in terms of application, such as hydrolytic and oxidative enzyme activity, median digestibility, and antinutritional factors. Fermentative processes, on the other hand, seem to have the potential to effectively reduce these impacts. […]

Impact of Alcohol Exposure on the Composition of HeLa-Derived Extracellular Vesicles

Extracellular vesicles are nanosized vesicles whose function in intercellular communication is being studied extensively. Extracellular vesicles are being studied for their potential as disease biomarkers and/or vaccine agents, as well as their function in disease defence. Since cervical cancer has such a high mortality rate, more research about how to diagnose and treat the disease […]

Role of Cytochrome P450s in Insecticide Resistance in Anopheles gambiae (Diptera: Culicidae): The African Perspective

In all living species, including Anopheles gambiae, cytochrome P450s are known to be essential for the detoxification and/or activation of xenobiotics such as insecticides. P450s have been implicated in insecticide resistance in An. gambiae in numerous studies. In the African subcontinent, however, little is known about the influence of distribution. The P450 clans, the CYP6 […]

Enzyme and Lectin Relationships in Cell Biology (Not Only Microbiology But Also Mammals and Plants)

Inter- and intramolecular relationships and directions in co-functioning lectins and enzymes are identified and ordered. The regularities of these relationships are highlighted and used as additional parameters for lectins and lectinic enzymes that are “true.” The findings point to the significance and potential of lectin-enzyme/ enzyme-lectin relationships in molecular and clinical cell biology, microbiology, medical […]

Research on Semiquantification of Lethal Toxin at the Bottom of Reactors for Clostridium sordellii Culture

The veterinary vaccine for Clostridium sordelli is created by cultivating the microorganism in large industrial bioreactors and purifying the toxin from the culture supernatants. The harvesting time is currently determined by bacterial growth, but this time is not always correlated with the highest concentration of toxin in the supernatant. As a consequence, determining the total […]

On the Effective Antiviral Treatment of Enterovirus Infections

Enteroviruses (EVs) play an important role in human pathology as causative agents of diseases with a wide range of clinical manifestations. The high heterogeneity of these approximately 200 viruses is the cause of their rapid development of drug resistance and, as a result, the lack of appropriate antivirals for clinical use. Antiviral monotherapies have been […]

Chemo-Nutritional Analysis and Organoleptic Quality Characteristics of Smoked African Catfish (Clarias gariepinus) Treated with Scent Leaf (Ocimum gratissimum) Juice

During five (5) weeks of storage at ambient temperature, the nutrient composition, biochemical, and organoleptic consistency characteristics of smoked Clarias gariepinus treated with scent leaf (Ocimum gratissimum) juice were evaluated. Table-sized catfish were given a 0.2 percent solution of O. gratissimum juice. For 5 minutes before smoking, use 0.4 percent, 0.6 percent, 0.8 percent, and […]

Performance Evaluation of Vegetative Growth, Yield and Quality of Bottle Gourds (Lagenaria siceraria L.) All India Co-ordinated Vegetable Improvement Project (AICVIP) Varietal Trials (AVT-I)

The All India Coordinated Vegetable Improvement Project (AICVIP) varietal trials (AVT-I) were conducted from 2013 to 2014 at the Department of Vegetable Crops, Horticultural College and Research Institute, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, to study the vegetative growth and yield performance of Bottle Gourds. The experiment was set up in Randomized Block Design (RBD) with […]

Improvement of Growth, Yield and Quality of Tomato Indeterminate Entries (Lycopersicon esculentum Mill.) All India Coordinated Vegetable Improvement Project (AICVIP) Varietal Trials (AVT-II)

From 2014 to 2015, a field experiment was conducted at the Department of Vegetable Crops, Horticultural College and Research Institute, Tamil Nadu Agricultural University, Coimbatore, to evaluate the performance of the All India Co-Ordinated Vegetable Improvement Project (AICVIP) varietal trial (AVT-II) on growth, yield, and quality of Tomato Indeterminate entries. Six entries were selected for […]

Dipyridamole as an Antiviral Agent

Dipyridamole (DP), a pyrimido-pyrimidine derivative, was found to be an interferon (IFN) inducer in cultivated in vitro lymphoid cells, and when given orally to mice and humans, it produced high IFN titres in less than 24 hours. A duration of IFN antagonistic activity was observed. The inducer target was discovered to be gut-associated lymphoid tissue. […]
