Biochemical properties of bone and scale collagens isolated from the subtropical fish black drum (Pogonia cromis) and sheepshead seabream (Archosargus probatocephalus)
Abstract Acid-soluble collagen (ASC) and pepsin-solubilized collagen (PSC) were isolated from the bones and scales of black drum ( Pogonia cromis ) and sheepshead seabream ( ArchosargusExpand
Biochemical properties of black drum and sheepshead seabream skin collagen.
Analyses of molecular weight profile, amino acid composition, and secondary structure showed that the skin collagens from both species were typical type-I collagen. Expand
Freundlich adsorption isotherms of agricultural by-product-based powdered activated carbons in a geosmin-water system.
The results indicate that when the amount of geosmin was below the threshold level of human taste, the phosphoric acid-activated pecan shell carbon and the Scientific Carbons sample were more efficient than Filtrasorb 400 atGeosmin removal. Expand
Stability of bovine immunoglobulins to thermal treatment and processing
Abstract Thermal stability of bovine immunoglobulin (IgG) in model systems and in commercially processed milk products was investigated. Bovine serum IgG dissolved in either phosphate buffered salineExpand
In vitro anti-proliferative activities of ellagic acid.
The results suggest that ellagic acid expressed a selective cytotoxicity and anti-proliferative activity, and induced apoptosis in Caco-2, MCF-7, Hs 578T, and DU 145 cancer cells without any toxic effect on the viability of normal human lung fibroblast cells. Expand
Pecan shell-based granular activated carbon for treatment of chemical oxygen demand (COD) in municipal wastewater.
The results show that granular activated carbons made from agricultural waste (pecan shells) can be used with greater effectiveness for organic matter removal from municipal wastewater than a coal-based commercial carbon. Expand
Evolution of phenolic compounds from color and flavor problems to health benefits.
There is limited clinical evidence that certain polyphenolic metabolites by virtue of their anti-inflammatory activities can improve insulin sensitivity and endothelial and mitochondrial function, suggesting that polyphenols are good for disease prevention. Expand
Adsorption of metal ions by pecan shell-based granular activated carbons.
Investigation of the adsorption effectiveness of pecan shell-based granular activated carbons in removing metal ions commonly found in municipal and industrial wastewater indicates that acid- and steam-activated pecanshell-based GACs are effective metal ion adsorbents and can potentially replace typical coal-basedGACs in treatment of metal contaminated wastewater.

The stability of o/w emulsions stabilized with beta-lgSO(3)PEG increased because individual droplets were better protected, against protein bridging or coalescence, by the thick adsorbed protein-PEG layer. Expand

FDA approves labels claiming that consumption of at least 3 to 4 oz of tofu or 8 oz of soymilk or soy protein may reduce the risk of coronary heart disease and breast cancer, and highlights the biochemical and functional food properties of the Bowman-Birk inhibitor. Expand
