This research highlights the chemical composition, antioxidant and antibacterial activities of essential oils and various crude extracts (using methanol and methylene chloride) from Syzygium cumini leaves. Essential oils were analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS).The abundant constituents of the oils were: α-pinene (32.32%), β-pinene(More)
BACKGROUND The present study was designed to investigate the enhanced antioxidant capacity of whole grains from wheat plants grown under seawater stress in response to microalgae extract treatment. RESULTS The total carotenoid (TCAR), tocopherol (TOC), phenolic (TPC), and protein (PC) contents in whole grains of wheat plants irrigated with 10% and 20%(More)
Harvesting of microalgae Scenedesmus sp. (strain A1) using the natural polymer chitosan was investigated. Different chitosan concentrations, i.e., 10, 20, 40, 60 and 80 ppm were used in the pH range 6 to 10 and cultural cell densities values equivalent to 1, 2 and 3 abs 680. Without the addition of chitosan, the increase in pH of the culture led to limited(More)
This study was designed to evaluate the neuro-ameliorative effect of red (Morus rubra) and white berry (Morus alba) extracts against Alzheimer´s disease (AD) in male rats. AlCl 3 was administered orally to male albino rats (100 mg/kg/day for 6 weeks) while, berry extracts (300 mg/kg/day for six weeks) was administered orally post AlCl 3 administration. The(More)
The purpose of the current work was to study the role of Dunaliella salina extract in ameliorating Alzheimer´s disease (AD) in rat brain. Aluminium chloride (AlCl 3) was orally administered to male albino rats (100mg/kg/day for six weeks), while, D. salina ethanolic extract (150mg/kg/day for six weeks) was orally administered post AlCl 3 treatment. At the(More)
The " International Journal of Pharma and Bio Sciences " (IJPBS) is an international journal in English published quarterly. The aim of IJPBS is to publish peer reviewed research and review articles rapidly without delay in the developing field of pharmaceutical and biological sciences And indexed/catalogued in many more university
Leaf protein concentrates were prepared from 25 different plant species. The concentrates contained acceptable levels of all essential amino acids; except methionine which was limiting with chemical scores ranging between 13.5-96%. LPCs from sesbania, nebergrass, lufa and sweet pepper were lethal to the rats. PER ranged between 0.28 for safflower LPC up to(More)
Aromatic gum from Boswellia carteri (olibanum oleogum) has long been used in Egyptian traditional medicine. Cyclooxygenase-1 (COX-1) enzyme inhibitory assay guided purification of the extracts of this resin resulted in five bioactive compounds, 3alpha-O-acetyl-8,24-dien-tirucallic acid (1), verticilla-4(20),7,11-triene (2), cembrene A (3), incensole acetate(More)
