The effect of glucose concentration on glycolytic metabolism under conditions of citric acid accumulation by Aspergillus niger was studied with 13C-labelled glucose. The results show that during cultivation at high glucose (14%, w/v), most of the label in citric acid is in C-2/C-4, and is thus due to the pyruvate carboxylase reaction. However, a significant(More)
The aim of this study was to investigate the biochemical effects of niacin and chromium(III)-chloride on serum lipid peroxidation, uric and sialic acids, and the extent of lipid peroxidation and glutathione levels in skin and lung tissues of hyperlipidemic rats. In this study, female Swiss albino rats, 12 mo old, were used. They were randomly divided into(More)
We investigated the effects of a combined treatment with chromium (Cr) and niacin on the spleen, tongue, and lens tissues in terms of lipid peroxidation (LPO), glutathione (GSH), serum catalase (CAT), lactate dehydrogenase (LDH), serum cholesterol, and total lipid levels in normal and hyperlipemic rats. In this study, female 1-year-old Swiss albino rats(More)
Pullulanase production from a fungus Hypocrea jecorina QM9414 that produces native extracellular hydrolases having industrial applications was carried out in a shaking flask culture containing 0.5% amylopectin at a pH of 6.50 at 300C. The enzyme was purified 11-fold by ammonium sulfate fractionation, anion-exchange and gel-filtration chromatographies with a(More)
In this paper, interaction of Schiff base and its metal complexes carrying naphthalene ring in the structure with bovine serum albumin (BSA) were investigated using UV-vis absorption, fluorescence spectroscopies and molecular docking methods. The effect on the binding mechanism and properties of these compounds containing metal-free, iron and copper ions(More)
A series of new p-nitrophenylhydrazone derivatives 3a-f were synthesized, characterized, and investigated for their antioxidant activities. These compounds have been synthesized by refluxing (p-nitrophenyl)hydrazine with 4-sub-stituted salicylaldehydes. The structures of the compounds were established by IR, (1)H- and (13)C-NMR, and MS data. The antioxidant(More)
