Four known prenylated flavonoids, artonins E (1) and O (2), artobiloxanthone (3), and cycloartobiloxanthone (4), were isolated from the stem bark of Artocarpus kemando by bioassay-guided fractionation using the DNA strand-scission and the KB cytotoxicity assays as monitors. Compounds 1 and 3 exhibited strong DNA strand-scission activity, and all four(More)
Nanotechnology is gaining momentum due to its ability to transform metals into nanoparticles. The synthesis, characterization, and applications of biologically synthesized nanomaterials have become an important branch of nanotechnology. Plant extracts are a cost-effective, ecologically friendly, and efficient alternative for the large-scale synthesis of(More)
The growing interest of nanotechnology in dentistry has sparked various applications of biomaterials in nanoscale to be developed. The aim of this study was to evaluate the genotoxicity effect of locally produced hydroxyapatite-silica nanocomposite (School of Dental Sciences, Universiti Sains Malaysia, Malaysia) using Comet assay on human lung fibroblast(More)
Factor that affect the risk of increased injury in the event of an automotive accident include reckless driving, environmental factor and roadway condition. The purpose of this study is to develop an accident prediction model for Federal Route 50 by using multiple linear regression analysis. The road accident trend and blackspot ranking were established at(More)
Poly (vinyl chloride) membrane electrodes that responded selectively towards the antimalarial drug chloroquine are described. The electrodes were based on the use of the lipophilic potassium tetrakis(4-chlorophenyl)borate as ion-exchanger and bis(2-ethylhexyl)adipate (BEHA), or trioctylphosphate (TOP) or dioctylphenylphosphonate (DOPP) as plasticizing(More)
Calcium phosphate (CaP) scaffolds have been widely and successfully used with osteoblast cells for bone tissue regeneration. However, it is necessary to investigate the effects of these scaffolds on odontoblast cells' proliferation and differentiation for dentin tissue regeneration. In this study, three different hydroxyapatite (HA) to beta tricalcium(More)
The title thio-semicarbazone derivative, C(12)H(18)N(4)S, features intra-molecular N-H⋯N and C-H⋯S hydrogen bonds which generate S(5) ring motifs. The dihedral angle between the benzene ring and the thio-urea unit is 6.30 (6)° indicating planarity in the mol-ecule. Inter-molecular N-H⋯S hydrogen bonds generate dimers with an R(2) (2)(8) ring motif. The(More)
Three sorbent materials (A18C6-MS, DA18C6-MS and AB18C6-MS) based on the crown ether ligands, 1-aza-18-crown-6, 1,4,10,13-tetraoxa-7,16-diazacyclo octadecane and 4'-aminobenzo-18-crown-6, respectively, were prepared by the chemical immobilization of the ligand onto mesoporous silica support. The sorbents were characterized by FT-IR, scanning electron(More)
Calcium phosphates (CaP) of different porosities have been widely and successfully used as scaffolds with osteoblast cells for bone tissue regeneration. However, the effects of scaffold porosities on cell viability and differentiation of human dental pulp cells for dentin tissue regeneration are not well known. In this study, biphasic calcium phosphate(More)
INTRODUCTION Glass Ionomer Cements (GIC) are among the most popular restorative materials, but their use in dentistry is limited due to their physical properties. The hardness of GIC was improved by incorporation of nano-hydroxyapatite-silica into GIC, to expand its applicability. AIM To evaluate the cytotoxic effects of nano-hydroxyapatite-silica(More)
