The antioxidant activity of eight edible species of Malaysian North Borneo seaweeds obtained from Sabah waters (Kudat, Tanjung Aru and Semporna) consisting of three red seaweeds (Eucheuma cottonii, E. spinosum and Halymenia durvillaei), two green seaweeds (Caulerpa lentillifera and C. racemosa) and three brown seaweeds (Dictyota dichotoma, Sargassum(More)
Previous studies have revealed that tocotrienol-rich fractions (TRF) from palm oil inhibit the proliferation and the growth of solid tumors. The anticancer activity of TRF is said to be caused by several mechanisms, one of which is antiangiogenesis. In this study, we looked at the antiangiogenic effects of TRF. In vitro investigations of the antiangiogenic(More)
This paper proposes a new 8/6-pole split-winding doubly salient permanent magnet (DSPM) motor drive. The analysis, control, implementation and experiments of the motor drive are presented. The magnetic field analysis is carried out using a finite element method. The split-winding topology is proposed to extend the constant power operation range. The control(More)
Preliminary investigations on 14 plant extracts (obtained by ethanolic and aqueous extraction) identified those having high antioxidant and a significant total phenolic content. Antihyperglycemic, α-amylase and α-glucosidase inhibition activities were also observed. A correlation between the antihyperglycemic activity, total phenolic content and antioxidant(More)
The insulin-like and/or insulin-sensitising effects of Syzygium aqueum leaf extract and its six bioactive compounds; 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde, myricetin-3-O-rhamnoside, europetin-3-O-rhamnoside, phloretin, myrigalone-G and myrigalone-B were investigated in 3T3-L1 adipocytes. We observed that, S. aqueum leaf extract (0.04-5 μg/ml) and its six bioactive(More)
A liquid drop impact on a moving wall with a pre-existing thin film of the same liquid is simulated by using a two-phase flow lattice Boltzmann model. A perturbation to flow near the wall is introduced shortly after the moment of impact to reflect the instability of drop impact dynamics. The present simulations not only confirm the splash behavior of a drop(More)
Realistic 3D city modeling using Mobile Laser Scanning (MLS) technique experienced a remarkable revolution in aiding urban planning, regulation design, city management, navigation, and emergency responses. This paper focuses on thoroughly examining the advance of automated MLS object extraction techniques over the last five years. Categorized as either(More)
MBT is a relevant method used as a pretreatment technique for MSW, especially for the MSW with high organic content and high moisture content. As the MBT method can greatly reduce the weight and water content of MSW, the properties and combustion characteristics of original and treated MSW would be very different. The treated MSW has a lower weight and(More)
