Propolis is a potential source of natural antioxidants such as phenolic acids and flavonoids. Its wide biological effects have been known and used since antiquity. In the modern world natural substances are sought which would be able to counteract the effects of antioxidative stress, which underlies many diseases, such as cancer, diabetes and… (More)
1. Authentic human acetylcholinesterase (AChE) was expressed in Escherichia coli under regulation of the constitutive deo promoter or the thermo-inducible lambda PL promoter. 2. To facilitate expression in the prokaryotic system, recombinant human AChE (rhAChE) cDNA was modified at the N terminus by oligonucleotide substitutions in order to replace some of… (More)
Bee pollen constitutes a natural source of antioxidants such as phenolic acids and flavonoids, which are responsible for its biological activity. Research has indicated the correlation between dietary polyphenols and cardioprotective, hepatoprotective, anti-inflammatory, antibacterial, anticancerogenic, immunostimulating, antianaemic effects, as well as… (More)

The effectiveness of state prison clergy counselors is, in part, due to the function of the individuals in their fulfillment of roles. The following research was conducted to find out the specific variables associated with state prison clergy counselor role self-perceptions. It examined those variables considered most important to the clergy counselors in… (More)
A hybrid plasmid was constructed containing beta-lactamase gene of plasmid pBR322 and cloned coding sequences of bovine growth hormone (BGH). The constructed plasmid contains all DNA sequences required to encode BGH, and when used as a hybridization probe it detects one growth hormone gene in the bovine genome. The cloned DNA sequences are inserted into the… (More)
A number of tri- and tetrapeptides have been found to inhibit aggregation and gelation of deoxygenated sickle cell hemoglobin. These inhibitors have hydrophobic phenylalanine residues at one end and hydrogen bonding lysine or arginine side chains at the other end. The backbone is not very specific. The inhibitors do not modify the oxygen carrying properties… (More)
